Happy Thoughts: January 20, 2021 at 12:56PM

While there can be legitimate excuses for not getting something done, saying we tried is often used as a first-line cop-out to avoid work we should have already done. Trying in most circumstances isn’t enough. We need to be realistic and honest with ourselves about how much effort we are really putting in.

The issue with “trying” is that it doesn’t come attached with any accountability or specific action steps. Ask yourself: What have you accomplished so far? Not thought about or tried, but what have you actually done? Are you taking the most action you possibly can, or are you skating by saying you’re trying as a quick feel-good?
