Using 'TRY' in a statement or sentence, 'I'll try to finish my report/emails/work/... before tomorrow” 'TRY' is the bane of completing what you want to accomplish, rather set smaller more manageable tasks that you can complete. This way it is easier to manage your progress by reevaluating your work in smaller time frames. This method is also more rewarding for the brain, you are communicating that YOU ARE ACCOMPLISHING your tasks. This equals good brain chemistry, which in turn equals a more positive outlook and the knock on effect of this ripples into every aspect of ones life. It's simple, effective and with practice becomes a positive way of life.
