Not long ago I heard a guy challenge someone who said they were “trying” to make some improvements in their life. The leader said, “You need to stop trying and start doing.”
I was discussing this idea with my friend Stacey, the Acrostic King. A couple of days later, he gave me these two acrostics for T-R-Y & D-O.
People who try . . .
T alk about their challenges
R ationalize their circumstances
Y ield to defeat
People who do . . .
D on’t accept excuses
O vercome with action
Which one best describes you? Try or do?
If you want to make a difference today, stop trying and start doing.
