Don't Forget To Connect

We get caught up in everything we do, often with our phones and at the expense of great interactions. I met a cool dude at the Filson flagship in New York this week - Mr Albert Bagdonas. An intrepid climber and adventurer - his passion for the outdoors and gear to help you navigate the outdoors was infectious.

He emailed me after my visit with his favourite quote from Yvon Chouinard:

 "Only on the fringes of an ecosystem, those outer rings, do evolution and adaptation occur at a furious pace; the inner center of the system is where the entrenched, non-adapting species die off, doomed to failure by maintaining the status quo. Businesses go through the same cycles.”
