Jim Whittaker Quote – On the edge

“Being out on the edge, with everything at risk, is where you learn and grow the most.” — Jim Whittaker

I took Todd Gilles out ice climbing at Lincoln Falls – story HERE and HERE. I led the first pitch and ran it out to the end of a 70M rope. That left about 25M of route that I offered to him as his first lead. It was awesome being his mentor and helping him to learn how to lead.

Best of all was inspiring the confidence in him that he could lead, and was ready. He did a great job, and like the quote said, that’s where you learn and grow.

How about you? Are you going to go to the edge and beyond, risk everything and learn and grow to achieve your success?
