“How you climb a mountain is more important than reaching the top.”
—Yvon Chouinard, American rock climber and founder of Patigonia
Are you an explorer? How often do you venture out on a quest or journey, to scale life’s mountains?
What are the factors that inspire you to put on your hiking boots and venture outside your comfort zone, personally or professionally?
How critical or important is it to arrive and actually reach the summit? How much attention do you usually pay to your individual steps? How often do you take in the scenery and the people you meet along the way?
Examine your level of excitement, anticipation, inspiration, curiosity, and passion relative to the mountains you are climbing. How can you discover far more rich rewards through the way you climb the mountain, whether or not you reach the top?
