Beta – June 29, 2012

Posted: June 29, 2012 in Beta, Fun, Video

Since this is a new blog, let me explain why I chose to name this weekly feature, “Beta.”

In the rock-climbing world Beta means information that helps you figure out the best route to climb up the rock. Rock climbing is problem solving, balance, technique and navigation in one.

Beta can come in many forms, such as guidebooks, observation of others and verbal instructions from others with a different vantage point. These concepts of rock-climbing Beta translate into life. We have a guidebook, we can watch others succeed or fail and we often need encouragement from others.

So…may these weekend posts help serve as a form of Beta for your life.
