“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 and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, 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 he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

– Theodore Roosevelt

*** The JOTW 2010 Survey:

The next iteration of the JOTW Survey is in the planning stages now. We have some great incentive prizes to encourage subscribers to participate. I am inviting those who want to contribute a prize or a service for the 2010 JOTW Survey to let me know before the end of 2009. When you provide an incentive prize, you will be given the name of the winner of that prize (drawn at random for the survey participants) and you will deliver the prize or service directly to that person. Do not send prizes to me here at the JOTW World Operations Center.

Send your item and description to Ned at lundquist989@cs.com.

When you offer to give prize, you get a paragraph to describe the prize, and yourself if you want, so you can write it off to promotional considerations. The list of prizes will be maintained at www.nedsjotw.com, posted in JOTW and in the JOTW Monday Morning Chasers, and at the JOTW Facebook and LinkedIn group pages.

Here’s what we have so far:
