"Do or Do Not; There is no Try."

Master Yoda - Jedi Knight
(Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back)

Having a quote for the week allows me time to digest it, reflect on it and apply it should I need to during the week. Sometimes it lifts me up, or it gives me an "aha" moment... even in the dojo as I guide my students during classes.

Here's one that has made an impact on all the people who know it. Although it isn't from O Sensei, I'm sure you've heard it before. I use it often when my children, friends or students are non-committal. "Maybes" and "we'll see..." are not real answers; just as "anything" is not an answer, when asked "what would you like to eat or drink." Reflect on it, live it, and watch your life change.
