Climb something—an anecdote about Edmund Hillary

After seeing two men who’d just returned from climbing Mount Cook in New Zeland, here’s how Edmund Hillary felt: “I retreated to a corner of the lounge filled with a sense of the futility of the dull, mundane nature of my existence. Those chaps, now, were really getting a bit of excitement out of life. I decided then and there to take up mountaineering. Tomorrow I’d climb something!”

My 2¢:
And climb he did—Sir Edmund Hillary eventually became the first man to climb Everest.
Be like Edmund Hillary. Climb something. Go.
