One Foot in Front of the Other

A family friend of mine, who I recently saw on a random roadtrip to Colorado, sent me an article the other week about Jimmy Chin. It turned out to be between Jimmy and Tim Ferris, the intelligent and crazy love of Silicon Valley. I’ve heard a lot about Jimmy from my brilliant climber/skier girlfriend, but I’d never really heard him speak in-depth about himself. Long story short he is one of the most humbling and inspiring individuals I’ve heard speak in a long time. And what really caught my attention was during Ferris’ last question. Tim Ferris asked how Jimmy Chin stays awesome and motivated. He used the phrase that my best friend and I often say whenever we’re grinding or people are questioning us: “I just put one foot in front of the other.”
