Now I know it is.
Yesterday I watched Austrian Felix Baumgartner break the record for the highest-ever skydive. His dive from near-space also broke the sound barrier, as he jumped 23 miles (a.k.a. 128,000 foot) to stick it in New Mexico.
This spectacle so entranced the rest of us that we broke YouTube in trying to watch. Only temporarily, but still—8 million people were trying to see this amazing success story and crashed access to the live stream. It was compelling
But even more power than watching the jump is the kick in the pants we
can get from Baumgartner’s focus, passion and perseverance. If you don’t take risks, you won’t move forward.
