Couple of weeks ago I found a new passion ‘Bouldering‘.
‘Bouldering’ is rock climbing stripped down to its raw essentials. The challenge is to climb short but tricky bouldering “problems” (a route, or sequence of moves) using balance, technique, strength, and your brain.
I quickly realized that it was more than just a sport.
It is the combination of commitment, strategy, creativity, courage, persistence, luck and many other things – So not so different from business.
When you go to your climbing gym and decide to take on a new route with the intention of conquering – it it’s about commitment.
In the next step you start looking for the sub-problems and how you could connect them.
Each step demands a lot of strategy, creativity and courage.
The further you advance the more you have to loose – this forces your brain to float your body with stress hormones it’s your conscious mind that controls the whole system of biased emotions.
There are times you fail and it’s your inner motivation that forces you to continue and prove that your persistence will provide the nutrients to push your limits.
As an entrepreneur at heart I see business challenges at every step of our lifes – take it as a lesson for the rest of our journey.
We all learnt to walk once.
So my friends out there have some faith and take one step after an other.
