Summiting your Everest


While I have not climbed this wonder of nature, I am incredibly interested in this masterpiece and salute those brave men and women who have summited and back, only summited, and those who have even attempted to summit.

I relate our life’s journey to Summiting Mt Everest in that we all have our own mountains to climb, our own Everest. On this exciting journey, we will face unexpected challenges along the way, which should not stop us in our quest to reach our Summit.

What is vitally important is how we best prepare ourselves, something we are 100% in control of, to face these challenges head-on and find a way to overcome them while always keeping the Summit in mind.

Sir Edmund Hilary made it up to the top of Mount Everest with his Sherpa guide, Tensing Norgay, who had vast experience, expertise, and knowledge of weather conditions and passable routes.

What is The Base Camp?

The Base Camp is an essential camp – situated more than halfway up Everest (5,316m) for a good reason. Anywhere above this, you enter a zone where life is not permanently sustainable. A well provisioned Base Camp provides climbers with a place from which they can best prepare themselves to make their ascent, as well as a place to periodically return to for them to acclimatize and prepare the body to continue the journey up the mountain and create the highest probability for them to reach the Summit.

To best prepare ourselves for the journey to the top of our Everest, it is imperative that we “Establish our Base Camp,” affording us the highest probability of reaching our Summit. Our base camp is the bedrock of who we are, both as an individual and as an organization. It serves as a place to reference back to, where we can periodically check in whenever we feel the necessity to do so or when we encounter those unexpected challenges that require us to go back to assess where we are relative to where we are going, affording us a safe space to “Think” recalculate, acclimatize and best prepare ourselves to once again embark on our journey for the Summit.

Too often, as entrepreneurs, business owners, or leaders, we believe we need to push through those avalanches that unexpectedly come down on us, but more often than not will find it extremely difficult to make clear sound decisions buried beneath the chaos. Trying to push through these avalanches drains us of the energy needed to deal with events as we come out the other side, should we come out the other side.

More often than not, it pays to go backward to move forwards. The key to having the confidence in doing so is to ensure you have a well “Established Base Camp.”

Spending time setting up your Base camp increases the probability of reaching your Summit. In this regard, like the Sherpas, as your Coach, I will use my expertise, knowledge, and experience, where TOGETHER we will prepare you for your journey.

I walk your journey with you – “not for you!!”. I will guide, encourage and, when tiring or facing unexpected challenges, support you and, if necessary, challenge you, to ensure you remain on track, affording you the highest probability of reaching your Summit and back. – “One Camp at a Time”
