“NO! Try not… there is no ‘try’. DO! Or do not.” – A powerful philosophical statement from the wise Yoda, and one, as a business leader, I identify with. One cannot enter a new venture with the spirit of “I’ll try,” and likely find great success. One must enter new ventures with the spirit “I’ll do!”. “Action” is #3 on Endertech’s list of 5 top values.
