If you don’t have to, mentally

From the office window yesterday at sunrise.

If you don’t have to, why would you?

You’re an adult and you can pretty much take any life path you want.

You’re the boss.

So, if you don’t have to have a positive attitude, why would you invest the time, energy, and karma to develop, maintain, and enhance a positive mental attitude?

Teach to learn

The Fab 5 made this Summer’s debut at the Cannon/Clements saddle. Mt. Reynolds in the background.

Teach to learn?

Yes.

To teach is to learn twice.

A master at something ultimately is judged by the quality and quantity of the apprentices, journeymen, and hopefully, new masters.

Enthusiasm has no auto-pilot

Yesterday. Bearhat Mountain on left.

Comparison is the death of joy, so the only person you need to compare yourself to is your younger self.

Are you growing?

Can you see and feel and notice your progress?

Growth requires fuel.

Enthusiasm is powerful, priceless fuel.

Enthusiasm has no auto-pilot.

Feed yourself well and constantly.

Remember, habits and rituals, by design, are the key to everything.

Overcomer

The Garmin Satellite GPS device reads 9,156′ above sea level. This is significant.

Four years ago i crossed Rim-Rock, this is 12-mile Highline Trail’s steep starting section with a narrow path and a 400-meter long reinforced cable for hand-holding.

Our Son and i wanted to do a dry-run and see how scary it would be. Cheryl stayed at Logan Pass with a good book.

It was 7:00 PM in July, so there were three hours of light remaining.

Our section would only take 10 minutes one-way from the parking lot.

With both hands tightly grasping the cable, i made it across what i deemed terrifying.

So terrifying in fact, that i was unable to return the same way.

With 11.5 miles to get to the other end, it would likely be 2:00 AM until we could traverse the trail to safely exit at The Loop.

At 1:00 AM, however, there are no shuttles, nor is there cell service to let Cheryl know what happened.

She’d panic (rightfully so) if we didn’t return.

i mustered the courage to walk back the narrow 400-meter trail.

i had to.

There was no other option.

Yesterday was a culmination of slow and steady progress, and the official self-proclaimed designation, overcomer.

Three things needed to work anywhere

Whitecaps on Lake Sherburne. Clouds covering Swiftcurrent valley on the lower right. Yesterday about 9:00 AM. Goodbye unreliable connectivity.

Three things needed to work anywhere:

  1. Airport
  2. Connectivity
  3. iPhone

That’s it.
