"Daring to Belong" is the title of my Presidents Message in the November issue of Golf Course Management. It begins with:
“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.”
— Theodore Roosevelt
Recently I read the book, "Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the way we Live, Love, Parent, and Lead." The remainder of the message can be found here: "Daring to Belong"
