Be Realistic. Dream!After the conquest of the South Pole by Amundsen who, by anarrow margin of days only, was in advance of the BritishExpedition under Scott, there remained but one great main objectof Antarctic journeying – the crossing of the South Polar continentfrom sea to sea‖.Ernest Shackleton
The Endurance was a three-masted sailing ship designed for Arcticexplorations and built on behalf of Norwegian Ship owners whowanted to allocate cruises in the Arctic Sea, but due to financialproblems, was sold two years after the launch, in 1914, to theexplorer Shackleton British, Anglo Irish.
There are no impossible dreams, just our limitedperception of what is possible.
"The ice is rafting up to a height of 10 or 15 ft. in places, theopposing floes are moving against one another at the rate of about200 yds. per hour. The noise resembles the roar of heavy, distantsurf. Standing on the stirring ice one can imagine it is disturbed bythe breathing and tossing of a mighty giant below"Shackleton
Shackleton‘s spirits were wonderfully irrepressible considering theheartbreaking reverses he has had to put up with &the frustrationof all his hopes for this year at least. One would think he hadnever a care on his mind & he is the life & soul of half theskylarking and fooling in the ship.Frank Arthur Worsley
Credibility is the foundation of leadershipNevertheless, his men looked towards "the Boss" as they called him. This collectionof Royal Naval sailors, rough and ready trawler hands and recent CambridgeUniversity graduates amongst others were now dependent on the man who had ledthem to this place and this very unfortunate predicament.
―It looks as though we shan‘t cross the Antarctic Continent afterall.‖ He paused, and then squaring his shoulders, added cheerfully,‗It‘s a pity, but that cannot be helped. It is the men that we haveto think about.‖
“It would be, I considered, so much better for the men to feel thatthey were progressing—even if the progress was slow—towardsland and safety, than simply to sit down and wait for the tardynorth-westerly drift to take us from the cruel waste of ice.‖The Progress Principle: Reenergize & Revitalizecreative productivity
