Innovation doesn’t mean invention

Many Glacier Hotel is a mile East of Swiftcurrent Motor Inn.
Dead center is the crevasse we used to reach Shangrila two days ago.
This photo contains a clue to a possible solution.
Floor seating was all that was available. It was perfect.
Big fireplace.
Wanted to walk out to the car before it got dark.

Innovation doesn’t mean invention.

Swiftcurrent’s wifi was down yesterday afternoon and evening so i drove over to Many Glacier Hotel.

You must be a registered Guest to access Wi-Fi.

If you remember two days ago i met the Continental Divide Trail hikers, “Poles” hacked the Swiftcurrent wifi password with a simple hack.

i tried it last night at Many Glacier.

It worked.

Crazy.

Cool.

A decent “service recovery” for missing half a day at Swiftcurrent.

Take the road less traveled

Mt. Wilbur.
Zooming out.
Looking back at Shangrila.
More context to “no trail”.
Heading to Iceberg Lake, from above.
Looking right at Ptarmigan Tunnel (center and not visible).
Iceberg Lake, the back door way.
The photo doesn’t capture how high we are.
Honami’s wings foretell our flight down to the lake shore.
To Honami’s slight left is a speck. Enol “skied” down quickly. This was his sixth time, our first.
Zooming in on Enol.
Made it. It was more fun than i thought.

Take the road less traveled.

We know the benefits.

We get anxious at the unknown.

We usually (habitually) choose the safe route.

No harm, no foul.

Unless you are a leader.

Note: Everyone is a leader. CEO of You, Inc and all of that.

Light at the end of the tunnel

Ptarmigan Tunnel.

Every employee wants to feel the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel.

The light, far away, brings hope.

Hope is a great strategy, but a poor tactic.

Be your own light at the end of your own tunnel.

It’s a great strategy.

Action is the tactic – your best tactic – you must master.

Fear, doubt, tradition, conformity. All of these inhibit action.

The only way to get to the end of the tunnel is through action – moving forward even when it’s dark and uncertain.

Transformational catalyst?

The photo App will change film making. Can’t wait.

Transformational catalyst means that some small spark ignited a desire to transformationally change.

To not look back.

To move forward in an almost impossible way.

A way that’s unprecidented.

Hopeful.

PS. It’s my business vision: To be a transformational catalyst.

Grizzly Bear leadership

Such a majestic creature. Watched it for 20 minutes last night at Two Dog Flats. Video clip below…
The Grizzly Bear is about 100 meters away…a dark speck in the photo’s center.
The magnetism of a single creature.

Grizzly Bear leadership revolves around the Grizzly’s power and tenacity to survive as well as the reverence and the mystery humans have for Grizzlies.

To see one, even from a car, and even from afar, is a moment no human will forget.

To photograph a Grizzly in the wild feels like a bucket-list accomplishment.

To be close enough to primordial reality – wild animals in the wild.
