Day 9 – I am traveling with Uphill Stuff…
 
You can look at a picture and see many things. You can see a team, working together to overcome obstacles. You can see ‘power-down’ leadership in action. You can also take a whole different look…
 
A few days ago, I talked about getting stuck in basecamp and trapped by Campfire people. Paul Martinelli says, “Stuck Stinks” True; not only does “Stuck Stink”…, “Stuck Sticks.” I look at the picture and I see a group of people weighted down, in search of their next Campfire.
When we broke camp and started up the tail again, what did we bring in our backpacks? Did we bring the old ideas, habits, and beliefs that caused us to seek safety around the fire the first time? Are we simply moving from one Campfire to the next Campfire? Are we stuck in Campfire mode, with Campfire people, with Campfire dreams… and Campfire stuff?
What is in our backpack that we can drop alongside the trail that is weighing us down? I know, I know, it’s good stuff. Stuff that you want to show everybody when you get to the top. How much of it is just Campfire stories and things. Uphill people do want to hear your Campfire stories or see your Campfire stuff. Sorry…
 
Time to drop the excess baggage and travel in search of uphill stories, ideas, habits, and beliefs. Uphill stuff is something worth sharing… and it does not weight as much!
