Success By Going Off Course

I was reading an article last night about the first successful climb of Mount Everest in 1953. There were three qualities that the team had, who scaled to the summit. The first two were straightforward and clear: be prepared and lead with determination. The third was not so obvious to me. It was about not following what was done before. The team abandoned the route that others had tried and failed. They opened their minds and looked at other paths, chose one, and weathered the naysayers who said it would never work.

My takeaway is this: don’t change courses for the sake of it, but do look for untested options that could be your ticket to success.

Enjoy your day,
