Daring Greatly

"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, 1910.

Daring is a quality possessed by people who are not risk averse, and in my blog I would like to share, explore and reflect on some of my darings. Some of them will be just everyday activities- opening a letter, writing an email, making a phone call, approaching a stranger. Others may be more adventurous- a relationship breakup, a career change, or moving to another end of the world. All darings big and small- shall we?
