Climb the mountain

This quote reminds me why I enjoy working in R&D and new product development.

Climb the mountain not to place the flag but to embrace the challenge, enjoy the air and behold the view.

Research and Development is hard work. There are a lot of unknown questions and answers and a high probability of failure. That said, the beauty isn't in the destination, the real magic is in the process of planning and making stuff.
