Overthinking With Brad Allen Episode #57: Alex Honnold Alex Honnold's Twitter: https://twitter.com/AlexHonnold Brad Allen's Twitter: https://twitter.com/bradallen On Tuesday, February 3rd, I had the opportunity to speak with professional rock climber Alex Honnold. Alex is well known for his free solo climbs of various rock faces, which do not involve any ropes or equipment to protect him from falling. When he is not free solo climbing, Alex is a professional climber who travels the world to scale various faces. In this episode we discuss his passion for climbing in general, and how he has turned that passion into a career that enables countless opportunities to travel and experience the world around him. We also discuss the steps it takes to get better at virtually any pursuit, and the pitfalls that many fall into along the way. It may sound simple, but one of the most sure-fire ways to get better at something is to accept that failures will occur and keep pushing forward when they happen. So many people take perfectionism to a place where they cannot handle failure, which stops them from having an opportunity to truly improve. I was honored to speak with Alex, he's a pretty inspiring dude. Be sure to check out his website and Twitter for more information, and I have included below a couple videos of Alex that you should check out. The first is his, "60 Minutes" interview from a few years back chronicling one of his free solo climbs. The second is a fun look at the tricked-out van Alex calls home while he travels the country/world. Enjoy and thanks for watching!
