“Try a thing you haven’t done three times. Once, to get over the fear of doing it. Twice, to learn how to do it. And a third time to figure out whether you like it or not.”
Whenever we try something new, we can’t base our judgment of that experience on our first attempt. Newness always brings extra anxiety and high-emotion. We must get to an “even ground” with a “level head” to decide the value of something new in our lives.
Likewise, in business, we don’t make a decision after one “attempt” at something. We try something again and again, gathering more information each time, to make a more informed decision.
I wonder what would have happen to the many inventions in this world had the inventor only tried once? I certainly doubt I would be traveling 31,000 feet in the air on a regular basis!
What is something that you have only tried once? You can guess what your challenge is… that’s right … try it two more times.
Anything worth trying, is worth trying more than once.
