"Fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing." - Optimus Prime

"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

“Where all think alike, no one thinks very much.” - Walter Lippmann

Book Recommendations

I'm a big fan of Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don't by Simon Sinek. It's an inspiring read on the strength of servant leadership and the rewards of trust in the workplace.

Several of the works of Brené Brown have helped me find my voice. Some of my favs include:

And Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown is a great reminder to focus on what's most important both in life & at work.
