Climber William Gadd: When you’re focused, ‘cool things happen’

“It’s not the things you add that bring success to what you’re doing,” says free climber William Gadd. “It’s the things you cut away. It’s the focus.”

At WeWork Summer Camp 2015, the climbing enthusiast talked about having the courage to follow what seem like crazy dreams. The former business executive seemed like he was on top of the world, but realized that his real dream was winning the X Games.

“What look like radical decisions,” Gadd explains, “are usually pretty well thought out and directed toward a goal. It’s the focus in life that you bring to a situation that solves it — for me, anyhow.”
