A human must have a brain. A computer must have a hard drive. Why? Because, if a human did not have a brain, it could not think, or do anything, and the person would die. If a computer has no hard drive, it will not function properly, and it cannot tell the rest of the computer what to do, and it couldn’t remember anything

Coaches make decisions all the time. So do everyday, normal people. And, in both cases, the decisions you make now effect what happens later.

The end result of effort is possibly recognition. If you work hard enough at one thing, you are likely to go somewhere with it. On the other hand, you might work and work, but still not be known or appreciated. It is at times like this that you felt your effort was wasted. But it was not, whether you realize it or not. You might not have gone anywhere with your attempt, but you are definitely better than when you started.
One of the terms that is often thought of when one hears the word effort is hard work. If you work hard, you exhibit effort. Effort is also closely related to power or strength. Effort does not mean power, but you must have the power to perform the effort.

We will try to find the answers to these questions by looking at the meaning of effort, some terms associated with effort, and the end result of effort.
