Glory goes to the man who fought

Glory goes to the man who fought

If you asked me 2 years ago if Concrete Everything would have been built up to what it is today, I couldn't tell you for sure that I knew. To be honest, I never had any clarity what would or wouldn't work, what steps I took to have guaranteed success and which pitfalls I avoided. It has been and will be a huge experiment.

The best lessons I had were the hardest to learn, the best directions I had were the most difficult things I had to let go, the best moments were those when I was most nervous about and the best people I'd get to know are those you never arranged to meet. What Concrete Everything today is an accumulation of learning, experiences, attempts, struggles, sweat, doubt and definitely sweat and tears. Nothing good actually comes without some form of pain.

Push on in wherever you are, and do what you find best at the moment. Hope this will encourage all those you on your own journey of discovery.

 

"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, The Man in the Arena, April 23, 1910
