Inspirationl Thoughts and Quotes from Michael Dell (CEO & Founder of Dell Inc.)

Michael's thoughts on Relationships...
"Try never to be the smartest person in the room. And it you are, I suggest you invite smarter people...or find a different room. In professional circles it's called networking. In organizations it's called team building. And in life it's called family, friends, and community. We are gifts to each other, and my own growth as a leader has shown again and again that the most rewarding experiences come from my relationships"

On Business...
"Our business is about technology, yes. But it's also about operations and customer relationships"

On Goals...
"You don't have to be a genius or visionary or even a college graduate to be successful. You just need a framework and a dream"

On Passion...
"Whether you've found your calling, or if you're still searching, passion should be the fire that drives your life's work"

On Opportunity...
"Don't spend so much time trying to choose the perfect opportunity, that you miss the right opportunity"

On Success...
"There are a lot of things that go into success. I don't like to do just the things I like to do. I like to do things that cause the company to succeed. I don't spend a lot of time doing my favourite activities"

On Failure...
"Don't be afraid to fail. Get out there and experiment and learn and fail and get a rate based on the experiences that you have. Go for it and when you go for it you'll learn what you are capable of, what the potential is and where the opportunities are, but you can't be afraid to fail because that's when you learn"

Don't stop learning and learn from the best!

A tribute for the 60th anniversary of the conquering of Mount Everest in 1953.

Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay
Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay on the 29th of May in 1953 reached the top of Mount Everest.
The British led expedition team included New Zealander’s George Lowe and Hillary

The route to Everest at the time was closed by Chinese-controlled Tibet, and Nepal only allowed one expedition per year. A Swiss expedition (in which Tenzing took part) had attempted to reach the summit in 1952 but was turned back by bad weather and exhaustion 800 feet (240 m) from the summit.

During a 1952 trip in the Alps (European), Hillary discovered that he and his friend George Lowe had been invited by the Joint Himalayan Committee for the approved British 1953 attempt and immediately accepted.

Eric Shipton was named as leader but was replaced by Hunt. Hillary considered pulling out, but both Hunt and Shipton talked him into remaining. Hillary was intending to climb with Lowe but Hunt named two teams for the assault: Tom Bourdillon and Charles Evans; and Hillary and Tenzing.

Hillary therefore made a concerted effort to forge a working friendship with Tenzing. The Hunt expedition totalled over 400 people, including 362 porters, twenty Sherpa guides and 10,000 lbs of baggage, and like many such expeditions, was a team effort. Lowe supervised the preparation of the Lhotse Face, a huge and steep ice face, for climbing. Hillary forged a route through the treacherous Khumbu Icefall.

The Conquest of Everest

Conquest of Everest

The expedition set up base camp in March 1953. Working slowly it set up its final camp at the South Col at 25,900 feet (7,890 m). On 26th May Bourdillon and Evans attempted the climb but turned back when Evans’ oxygen system failed. The pair had reached the South Summit, coming within 300 vertical feet (91 m) of the summit. Hunt then directed Hillary and Tenzing to go for the summit, too attempt the conquest of Everest.

Snow and wind held the pair up at the South Col for two days. They set out on 28th May with a support trio of Lowe, Alfred Gregory and Ang Nyima. The two pitched a tent at 27,900 feet (8,500 m) on 28th May while their support group returned down the mountain. On the following morning Hillary discovered that his boots had frozen solid outside the tent.

He spent two hours warming them before he and Tenzing attempted the final ascent wearing 30-pound (14 kg) packs. The crucial move of the last part of the ascent was the 40-foot (12 m) rock face later named the “Hillary Step”. Hillary saw a means to wedge his way up a crack in the face between the rock wall and the ice and Tenzing followed.

From there the following effort was relatively simple. Tenzing Norgay stated in his narration “The Dream Comes True” that Hillary had indeed taken the first step atop Mount Everest, despite Hillary quoting that both had reached the summit at the same time. They reached Everest’s 29,028 ft. (8,848 m) summit, the highest point on earth, at 11:30 am on the 29th May, 1953. As Hillary put it, “A few more whacks of the ice axe in the firm snow, and we stood on top.”

15min at the Top of the World

They spent only about 15 minutes at the summit. Hillary took the famous photo of Tenzing posing with his ice-axe, but since Tenzing had never used a camera, Hillary’s ascent went unrecorded. However, according to Tenzing’s autobiography ‘Man of Everest’, when Tenzing offered to take Hillary’s photograph Hillary declined – “I motioned to Hillary that I would now take his picture. But for some reason he shook his head; he did not want it”.

Tenzing left chocolates in the snow as an offering and Hillary left a cross that he had been given by John Hunt. Additional photos were taken looking down the mountain in order to confirm that they had made it to the top and that the ascent was not faked.

The two had to take care on the descent after discovering that drifting snow had covered their tracks, complicating the task of retracing their steps. The first person they met was Lowe, who had climbed up to meet them with hot soup.

Hillary’s now famous quote to George Lowe when they first meet him on the way down Everest was:

Well George, we knocked the bastard off!!

Have you gone to someone else’s blog and seen a video in their sidebar and thought “Hey I’d like to have video’s running in my sidebar too?” … So how do you do this?
After a few trial runs I worked out what I wanted to see and went about trying different ways to achieve this. What I ended up with in the end is an easy how-to method with the video that fits the width of the blog roll (300 pixels) and plays within the same frame.

All is explained in the video below
