What works

It sounds good, the experts give it praise, it has popular support. But will it get the job done, solve the problem, reach the goal?

In the end what matters is one thing. Does it work?

Speculation is useful but not definitive. Planning, preparation, expertise, and experience all can help, but do not guarantee success.

You must find out what works, for the situation, for the time, for you and everyone else involved. To do that, you have to make a specific attempt and then make sure you’re honest about the results.

You’ll find out soon enough whether the approach works or whether it doesn’t. If it works, stick with it and if it doesn’t, move on and attempt something different.

Go beyond the noisy hypothesizing and put forth the effort to know for sure. Figure out what works, and then do it.

— Ralph Marston
