“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” - Neale Donald Walsch. This quote is significant to today’s podcast because my son, Hayden, just spent a month Sea Kayaking and backpacking through the Alaskan Wilderness on a NOLS Program. He chose this program knowing that it was outside of his comfort zone. He was put in a group of 12 people that he did not know from around the world and they were expected to come together as a team during the course. I sat down with him in the morning after he returned from this trip as he shared his experience and stories from the trip. As the quote above states, once he got outside of his comfort zone his growth and transformation really began. Lessons in leadership, cooperation and survival had to overcome frustration and sometimes boredom to ensure a successful passage. This is one of my favorite podcasts ever with an exceptional young man that I am lucky enough to have as a son. Special thanks to NOLS for yet another transformative program for another one of my children!
