Is it the thought, that counts?

QuestionsDo motives and intentions ‘count’, whatever the outcome? Should we always try to understand why a person thought a particular idea would help, even if in the end it seems it didn’t?

Does someone who ‘meant well’ deserve more credit, whether the idea turned out to be OK or not, than someone who achieved a ‘good’ outcome, without really intending to?

Can we learn more if we study motives as well as outcomes?
