I have always loved this quote from Theodore Roosevelt:
Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.
Changing the course of Phanfare by adding social networking, allowing Phanfare to be free and leaving our web hosting roots behind us was a risky move for us. But doing nothing was even riskier.
Our only true asset in life is time. Each and every one of us gets to decide how we will spend it. I would rather spend it on doing something great, and possibly failing, than by pursuing a middle course yielding neither failure nor success.
