If you are thinking that some of my quotes are sounding awfully similar, you are right!
I guess you can often read from our quotes the kind of thing either I am personally struggling with, or my kids are struggling with, so often the quote becomes a way of discussing things we need to work on.
“I recently had a conversation with a friend where we discussed the difference between trying your best and doing your best. Your quote reminds of that. Everything is in the action. Everything.”
The difference between trying your best and doing your best.
This has been swirling around in my brain all week, and prompted me to make this our quote of the week.
It led to a long discussion in our house about the difference: Trying vs Doing. Some argued it is the same thing. Although, I believe that some people are more natural “doers” so maybe for them “trying is doing.”
Some said that trying is giving a piece of yourself, while doing is the full commitment.
Some said that trying is cerebral, while doing is an actual act.
I feel that I want to DO my best as that implies I am TRYING my best. It’s all encompassing. Trying however, does not imply doing.
What do you think? What is the difference between trying and doing?
