Ready. Fire. Aim.


It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

– Theodore Roosevelt


Dear Jack ~ Sometimes you just have to do the the thing.  You have to create and put it out into the world.  You have to try.  You have to do.  Their is not substitute for action.  Sometimes the simplest solution is to act.

While I am all for the power of proper planning and crafting a method of achievement, there is ultimately nothing more important than the power of do.  The hours spent in preparation are priceless but they will pale in comparison to the time on the field and in the arena.  Plan your work, but more importantly, work your plan.
