    I(am) always try(ing) to do...

    Hi

    Which is better in your opinion:

    1. I always try to do my work as best as possible

    2. I'm always trying to do my work as best as possible.

    Thanks

    ...as well as possible.

    Both are acceptable, but if you want to sound positive use the first one.

    I am always trying would imply that you are not very successful at doing your best. It's rather negative.

    I always try does allow the interpretation that you are effective at what you do.
