It's Not The Thought That Counts
Updated: Nov 7, 2020
It's not the thought that counts.
Sometimes, depending on your personal perspective, or depending on who you work for, live with, love, or serve, it's the effort that counts.
Many times, even if we don't like it, it's the results that count. The production, the outcome.
What you thought about doing or saying, who you thought about being, the gift that you thought about giving, the effort you thought about making, is not nearly important as what you actually did, what you said, who you worked to become, or the gift that you actually gave.
Sometimes you'll be required to count the outcome.
But as best you can, count the effort.
If you give a good one, you can learn from it and live with it, regardless of the outcome.
But the thought alone, that's not worth much.
