Are you climbing the right mountain? The skill you need to find out.



There are so many ways to use the image or concept of what a mountain represents as a starting point when describing how to overcome obstacles, bad luck or symbolizing a goal.  You know how hard it is to scale the highest points on earth...but sometimes you just need a mountain to climb in order to stay fit and sharp. Out of challenge comes growth...and without challenges in life, you can flatline in your growth. Your focus should not just be to get good at climbing mountains...but the real skill is getting good at finding the right mountains to climb. I like the way Abby Wambach stated it below...when you have decided to do something great or difficult...your work has just begun.


Today there are two Classroom Quotes:
Life is a mountain of solvable problems, and I enjoy that.
-James Dyson
It's a heavy burden to look up at the mountain and want to start the climb.
-Abby Wambach

James Dyson in a successful British inventor and businessman.

Abby Wambach was a soccer player and coach. She won a gold medal and was a World Cup Champ.
