There are many ways to spend the precious time we have each day. Some of those ways help our customers and our team, others don’t. One of the biggest ways we waste our precious time is in worrying about whether a hypothesis that we’ve made, or an idea that we want to try will work as we think it will. And the reason that worrying about these is a waste of time is that it delays – and often prevents – us from simply doing the easiest and most useful thing to find out if what we think is going to happen really does, which is: try the idea in reality and find out! As long as we keep something in our minds, we really don’t know what will happen. And the longer we keep it in our mind and stew about it, the more worried we get and the less likely we become to simply give it a try. There’s no perfect in life. There’s always a risk. So, stop focusing on what could go wrong – what you can’t do – and start trying things out to find out what you CAN do. As Theodore Roosevelt said, “Do what you can with what you have where you are.” And, believe me, once you start, you’ll realize that the biggest benefit is finding out that what you CAN DO is much more than you thought you could!
