Innovation Through Perseverence

21 08 2009

Having read a book as a kid about a group that actually went to the North Pole with dog sleds, I was intrigued by this story. Always inspiring, Ted Talks give us insight into all kinds of innovation. In this talk by Ben Saunders on skiing to the North Pole, a journey 10 times more dangerous than Mt. Everest, he shares not only his solo journey and his preparation for that journey. He also has some great advice on motivation by use of mental video clips. On arrival at the North Pole, he called three people from his satellite phone: his mom, his girlfriend, and his sponsor. He got voice mails on all three!This is the ultimate lesson in failing forward. I hope you enjoy.
