We all know that obstacles and challenges can become overwhelming and that it’s easy to get weighed down by the problems we face; however, it’s important to remember that we shouldn’t allow what we can’t do get in the way of what we can. This value encourages us to overcome obstacles and push through challenges, even when they might seem insurmountable at first. 

By focusing on what we can do, we are able to find solutions, eliminate excuses, and empower ourselves to take action, allowing us to make progress toward our goals. It’s particularly important when it comes to execution and completion. It’s not enough to have a good idea or to come up with a plan; it’s essential that action is taken so that an idea can become a reality. 

Of course, this value does not mean that we should ignore problems and challenges. Instead, it’s about approaching obstacles from a different perspective. If we seek out ways to overcome challenges instead of solely focusing on problems, we are far more likely to think of creative solutions.

“Don’t let what you can’t do get in the way of what you can do” is a value that can help us achieve what is possible. By focusing on what we can do, removing excuses, and taking action, we become better equipped to overcome challenges and fulfil our potential.
