Don’t Think, Try
I’m currently listening to a book titled The Great Influenza and one of the characters in this medico-historical account was John Hunter (1728–1793).
Hunter is the father of scientific surgery and is famous for this quote, “Don’t think, try; be patient, be accurate…” (“John Hunter — The Scientific Surgeon “Don’t think, try; be patient, be accurate.”, 1999)
An antidote to self-sabotage is to self-innoculate with the Hunterian vaccine of “Don’t think, try; be patient, be accurate” BUT, if your a Star Wars fan, then Yoda should be able to provide a solution to self-sabotage — “Do or do not. There is no try”.
