Highly successful people like Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg use “capsule wardrobes.” Maybe it’s about time you got rid of that old ratty shirt that you’re never going to wear, or start thinking twice before impulse buying your way into being a victim of the next fashion trend. Because looking good, isn’t the only reason to have a smaller, edited wardrobe.
Because the ones you’ve been taking likely don’t include cycling in the snow with wild bears on your tail. It may be a great way to soak in the open air for many city folk, but there are still trails that are anything but a walk in the park.
Climbs like Via Ferrata in Italy, peaks of Mt. Hua Shan in China (as high as 5300 ft!), Alaska’s Rover’s Run, and California’s own Giant Dome will leave you thinking that “hike” you took at Runyon Canyon was more of a relaxing stroll.
These admired companies now have sharp looking websites that put their best foot forward and match their reputable success. But, they were like everyone else in the ’90s, struggling with hosting a presence on the Internet that was efficient, useful, and appealing (and not chock-full of moving marquees, site counters, splash pages, and intro music). Amazon, like Craigslist, may be an exception. Today, it’s hard to believe these sites would ever convince anyone to take them seriously. Take a look at some of the early websites of these Fortune 500 companies.
