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.
