I like the thrill and rush of doing things but this one is way outside my comfort zone. My friend Nicole Donnelly shared this on her FB page, but, I thought it was worthy of posting over here as it’s CRAZY. Watch the video at the end of this blog post… even though you know he lives it still is pretty nerve wracking.
Physical and Mental Pounding
As a person running a company I think it’s important to push your limits. It’s important to know how far you can push yourself and know that you won’t break if you push just a little bit harder. Being an entrepreneur, I know I’ve stepped into situations where I had no clue how challenging it would be to get through it, but, because of my attitude of I can power through anything I just step in and do it. Last year when I ran my first Half Seattle Marathon, during the last three miles of run, I remember thinking this is the hardest thing I’ve ever put my body and mind through. At the end I had the feeling that I am pretty sure this experience is going to help me overcome future challenges.
What do you do?
What do you do to prepare yourself for the unexpected? In startup life and over the course of the first few years of running a company so many thing can go in directions that you least expect, it seems like you have to be both physically and mentally strong to get through all craziness!
