We're the guys in the arena. We're a team and we're taking our chances and doing things our way. "Our way" is being open to ideas, vetting the ideas with respect, and coming up with our best approach to solving problems. We self manage and take ownership of our work. We are not perfect but we take initiative to solve problems swiftly as they arise. Most important, we keep ourselves focused on being positive.
"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 those people who are actually in the arena… who know the great enthusiasms, the great devotions to a worthy cause; who, at best, know the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, fail while daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." Teddy Roosevelt
