When was the last time you showed up and Dared Greatly?
I want to hear about the last time you were afraid of something and did it anyway.
I’ve been challenging a lot of my fears recently and I want to hear about your experiences.
It is not the critic who counts nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbles 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 dust and sweat and blood who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again because there is no effort without error or shortcoming but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions who spends himself for 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 knew neither victory nor defeat.
Ahha! That’s just the coolest piece of technology in a long time. And only $100 max? I’m not blind but uh…I’d buy one. Just sayin.

World’s First SmartShoe
The world’s first-ever SmartShoe is called Le Chal, which means “let’s go” in Hindi. Designed by Anirudh Sharma, these shoes work as touch-sensing navigation devices that connect to your smartphone.
The basic idea is pretty simple. You tell your smartphone where to go using the app’s voice recognition software, and the app uses GPS to plot the course from your current location. Once you’re on your way, the shoes vibrate when it’s time to turn—on the left side for a left turn and on the right for a right turn. The vibrations become more intense as you get closer to your destination.
The shoes also work as a pedometer and help you measure the number of calories burned on your trip. And, at $40 to $50 for the visually impaired, they’re cheaper than a pair of Nikes. They’ll cost $100 for the rest of us eye-seeing people.
