I asked Jack about his comment yesterday…I repeated it back to him and tried to see if he thought it was still sound advice…to not try your best.
me: So what do you think about trying your hardest and maybe failing, OR trying no-so-hard and succeeding if you get lucky. Do you think that’s the way to tackle the world?
Jack: I know you’re talking about Taekwondo.
me: No I’m not. But that would apply…
Jack: So, wait, what?
me: You said it yesterday, remember?
Jack: I would still not try very hard and then hope for the best. (he laughs at this)
me: But why not try your very very best at everything?
Jack: That just cuts into my TV time.
