Friday Unwind – It’s not the critic that counts

5 Sep

Good morning everyone…In the spirit of assisting in your lack of productivity on Friday’s here is a new video. I decide to change the title for my Friday posts because Video of the week is boring and may be I will post things other than videos someday.

For those familiar, Leadercast just released the speaker line up for their 2015 event held each year in Atlanta. They introduced the 10 guests through a series of short videos based on the inspirational quote below. Here is another version that they shared at the end of last year’s broadcast.

So here’s to hoping you have a great weekend. Dare Greatly!




Teddy Roosevelt – “The Man in the Arena”


“It’s not the critic that counts; not the

man who points out how the strong man

stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could

have done 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…”


All the best,

    • Brooke, thank you SO MUCH. It has been a lot of work but also a lot of fun looking for great material to share.

      I am still behind on reading the Charles Duhigg book “The Power of Habit”. But I plan to get to it soon…. 🙂

      Thanks a million for leaving a comment.

      All the best,

  1. I’m only on page 30! So you still have time to catch up 🙂 But it’s great. And I’ve really enjoyed all the info you have been posting about habits, too. I’m starting to believe that being aware of your habits and knowing how to change them is the golden key to productivity, happiness, execution, EVERYTHING. Great stuff Kevin!! Thanks again.
