The Best

“If we can’t be the best at it, then why are we doing it at all?” This quote is from the book Good to Great by Jim Collins and, respectfully Jim, I couldn’t disagree more. Sure there are places for being ‘the best’ but in my opinion they are few … Continue reading The Best

                If you followed my recent luggage losing saga in Peru, you may remember I mentioned that we had to literally repurchase/replace every little thing for our hiking expedition.
