The Difference Between Trying and Doing

Trying vs Doing

Trying is not the same as doing. You either do something, or you don't.

When we say we are trying, we don't have to do anything. It only provides us with an excuse for why we couldn't accomplish the outcome we desired.

Trying vs Doing

Trying is not the same as doing. You either do something, or you don't.

When we say we are trying, we don't have to do anything. It only provides us with an excuse for why we couldn't accomplish the outcome we desired.

How to quit trying

  1. Remove the word 'try' from your vocabulary. 'Try' induces the kind of behavior that leads to failure.
  2. Decide either to do or not do. If you don't want to do something, don't do it. If you do want to do something, commit to it, and make it happen.
  3. Commit 100 percent to the outcome you want. Don't quit. Don't settle for trying.

Colour Vs Black and White

The old folktales didn't have a black-and-white narrative, and instead had nuanced characters with personality, and not necessarily morality.

In many old stories, the protagonist had a varied set of values, which were colorful and diverse.

Complex Vs Simple

The old complex storylines were not having a clear identification of what's good and what's bad. The reader had to figure out the details and the complexity which lead to endless discussions.

The modern tales provide a simplified 'colour by numbers' approach to understanding, with clear outlines as to who is the Hero with all the morals, and who is the bad guy who must be killed.

The power of microbreaks

They can improve workers’ ability to concentrate, change the way they see their jobs, and even help them avoid the typical injuries that people get when they’re tied to their desks all day.

There’s no consensus on how long the ideal microbreak should last or how often you should have them; it’s up to you to experiment with what works best.

Why stretching matters

Tiny breaks are thought to help us to cope with long periods at our desks by taking the strain off certain body structures – such as the neck – that we’re using all day.

If you’re getting into microbreaks to give your body – rather than your brain – a rest, it’s best to do something physical like standing up or changing position.

Therapy Goers And Medication

Most mental health professionals treat mental illness by combining psychotherapy and medication or by therapy alone. Many clients choose the latter when they don’t need medication or think of it as burdensome. 

Willing To Listen

Untrained people can’t offer the same mental health benefits as a mental health professional could.

Your mental health is too big a responsibility to place on the people in your life. They will be there for you during hard times, but shouldn’t be a substitute for therapy.
