Do What You Can


“Do what you can… with what you have… where you are.”
Theodore Roosevelt

I saw this at the bottom of an email from one of our For Impact evangelists. I love Teddy’s simplicity and directness.

Sure cuts through a lot of whining and complaining.

It also reminded me of something else that Teddy Roosevelt wrote in 1913 called MAN IN THE ARENA. For the last 20 years, I’ve shared a copy of this with every Notre Dame boxer at the end of the season.

Thought you would enjoy reading it… especially for all of you who are actually “in the arena“.

Note: 1913. Pre-Equality. I’ve added the (WO). There are certainly as many WO-MEN in the arena as MEN.
