171: Jimmy Chin | It took 3 Attempts to Ski Everest

To climb Everest wasn’t quite enough for climber and documentarian Jimmy Chin. He had to ski it. Even the sherpas urged him not to do it. Despite the appearance of being a free spirit who may have lost control, this is far from who Chin really is. By his own description, he is someone who grew up being very disciplined. His life is about managing risk. What was his biggest risk? It was not encountered on Everest or El Capitan, or any other iconic mountain. In this episode, he’ll describe it, and what it takes to reach our passions.

Lessons

  1. If you instill a model of excellence early on in your children, they may not do the thing you had hoped, but they will likely be successful at whatever they do.

  2. It’s a gift if you find something you love, because many people never do.

  3. The ones who are really good are able to calculate risk at a very high level: able to take things to the edge without going over.
