If you try to do something, it can be… well… trying!
When I read or hear interviews with people who succeed at things, I rarely hear them say that they did it because they tried. Trying is fraught with failure. It’s also a get-out clause or a consolation prize, as in “Oh well, at least I tried”.
Never try! It’s hard work and bound to fail. Just do it. Doing leads to a result. Whatever it is, it’s a start.
