Climbing With Quality

Zestful Blog Post #65

I once knew a wise old 25-year-old, from whom I learned wilderness skills when I was 24.
One day he posed the question, "Is it more important to reach the top of the mountain, or to climb with quality, even if it be only 10 feet?"

So much of our current culture is about reaching the top at all costs: costs to integrity, costs to others. But mostly it's at a cost of integrity. Why? Because integrity can't be bought and sold, so it's easy to forget how priceless it is.
