This is hilarious, Frank McKinley, because I just told my girls this morning, there is no trying — Do or Do not… there is no try. I get what you’re saying here and it is respectable in the way you suggest. Trying is also an excuse, especially at school. I hate how teachers tell the kids “you tried” while issuing pats on the back and a consolation trophy. You had me at the title and the way you explain it here makes sense. Try in the sense of exploration. This can be good.
