Do. Or do not.

There is no try. — Yoda

I’m not a big Star Wars fan (oh, stop sobbing — I’m not a nemesis of any of it!), but a sign at work caught my eye. Indeed, it was Yoda’s wise admonition.

Why it caught more than my eye, I’m not sure. Maybe it’s because I try too much and do not a lot. Which means I’m still at a job that I am wishing more and more to replace with some other that could bring in at least 2/3 of this pay but would stop eating up my right knee and evening family time. (See what I mean? There is no try: Do. Or do not. There is no try, dammit! This ship MUST be saved, with or without a lottery win!)

(Note to self: buy a lottery ticket.)

Why I’m bringing this to you in WordPress, I also don’t know, but when I search a phrase in Google, the resulting offerings have so very often been tickle-y. This one tickles me, and maybe you as well. Slainte!

    I have a little sign on my office door: Today is not the day. I am not the one.

  2. I’m curious which came first – Yoda or Mr. Miyagi.
    Mr. Miyagi:
    Now, ready?

    Yeah, I guess so.

    Mr. Miyagi:
    [sighs] Daniel-san, must talk. [they both kneel] Walk on road, hm? Walk left side, safe. Walk right side, safe. Walk middle, sooner or later, [makes squish gesture] get squish just like grape. Here, karate, same thing. Either you karate do “yes”, or karate do “no”. You karate do “guess so”, [makes squish gesture] just like grape. Understand?
