Climbing Kilimanjaro with Justin Caplan – Part 9

This photo shows the tents where we slept. On the third night, we had an insane night of wind. It was a good reminder that you are at nature’s mercy, and the weather can turn treacherous in the blink of an eye.

Fortunately, when we woke up, it was calm.

We started our “acclimatization climbs.” We would leave the 12,000 plus elevation and head to a height of 16,000 feet above sea level.

BUT… you don’t stay there. You hike back DOWN to sleep at 13,000 feet elevation.

This process may sound inefficient, but it’s actually essential to help people acclimatize naturally.

I see a parallel in our work lives. Someone seems to be doing something that may not make sense to us. But maybe they have a piece of the puzzle that we don’t.

They see the big picture and understand that some of the tedious steps that seem meaningless are actually critical to success.
