I’m off climbing Mount Everest!
After 37 years of dreaming, training and preparing, I’m going to attempt Mount Everest.
From reading my first Everest book at age 15, through three decades of climbing high, snowy peaks around the globe, I’ve steered myself toward the summit of Mount Everest.
Gradually, I’ve compiled the skills, judgment and knowledge needed to climb Everest responsibly and respectfully.
Now, I am off to Nepal! A mountainous load of learning looms ahead. There will be hard-won lessons on:
- Setbacks and success
- Engagement and execution
- Resolve and resilience
By following this journey, you can benefit from the lessons of Everest Resilience. Though you may not actually scale an icy slope five and half miles up into the sky, you can:
- Increase your resolve to endure and succeed
- Enhance your courage and commitment
- Inspire and motivate yourself, and those around you, to pursue big goals and bold dreams
As I engage with and climb Mount Everest, I will capture what I experience, and distill what I learn. The stories, lessons, photos and videos will be shared with you through:
- This website
- My blog
- Social media
Please follow along, embrace Everest Resilience, and share the lessons with others who are facing their own Everest in work or life.
