I’m a sucker for Life Lesson and often find them most inspiring and memorable when they come in the form of metaphor.
In this talk at TED, Matthew Childs, a veteran rock climber shares 9 lessons to be learned from rock climbing that are also applicable at “sea level”.
Rule #1 Don’t Let Go
Rule #2 Hesitation is Bad
Rule #3 Have a Plan
You get the idea, the lessons are short and to the point.
I really like the simplicity of the message and the reinforcement that comes from their connection to the rock climbing metaphor.
