time to regroup
Kevin's death is having an effect on my job search. I'm trying to stay focused on some of the research pieces I'm doing, and to keep scheduling new meetings. But I've noticed a change in outlook that's not helping, and that I'm needing a bit more down time to keep going.
Three reasons to be thankful:
- This website hit five hundred views for the first time in years.
- I've learned a new technique for fishing for walleye that I hope to use this summer.
- I've managed to land a couple of meetings with new contacts that I'm quite looking forward to.
(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)
It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, 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 the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.
-Theodore Roosevelt, Jr.
