Doing vs. Trying / Illustration for the Hohe Luft Magazin

Illustration for Hohe Luft Magazin (Germany)

This drawing accompanied an article for Hohe Luft Magazin about the differences between trying and doing: Why is Nike telling us to „Just do it“ instead of asking us to "just try it"? Is trying less popular than doing something? And is it only at the end of an action that one can decide wether that action was an attempt or a success? The good thing about experimenting is that the outcome is open. Something unforeseeable could happen. In that way every attempt is an experiment.
