This past weekend my family and I hiked the Tongariro Crossing We have all heard of it as 'New Zealand's best one day hike' which sets expectations high. Now I don't know about you, but when there is an opportunity I grasp it with all ambiguity and make sure it is the pathway that leads to 'the better story'. This is generally how I like to see challenges or opportunities. If you come between a fork in the road, choose the pathway that generates the better story.
