Yoda was wrong

For anyone that doesn’t get the reference, see this scene from Star Wars. Luke is trying to raise his X-wing fighter from a lake using the force and can’t do it. He says he will try again. Yoda says “No. Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.”

I think this could work on a TRI coffee mug or t-shirt. First, Yoda is great example of someone who’s aged successfully. He uses an assistive device. He is wise and powerful. Also, I think Yoda was wrong to devalue the act of trying. Trying matters. We may fail or succeed but what matters is that we try to solve the problems we see around us. When we do fail, we learn from the failure and try again.
