Continuing our global tour to learn something new, our next stop is Hilton Head, South Carolina.
In August of 1663, English Captain William Hilton spotted the island and named it after himself, calling it ‘Hilton Head.’. The word ‘Head’ refers to the headlands visible while sailing the unchartered waters.
Hilton Head is less than 5 miles wide and 12 miles long, but the island has more than 50 miles of bicycles trails. Fewer than 40,000 people are year-round residents of Hilton Head, but 2.5 million others visit every year.
The red and white striped lighthouse in Harbour Town is not a real working lighthouse. It was built as a tourist attraction.
Hilton Head is a golfers’ paradise. More than a million rounds of golf are played on its over 40 courses every year.
Now about the opening picture. At the invitation of the Loss Prevention Magazine, I had the pleasure of delivering my “Disruptive Future of Retail” continuously updated presentation to a large audience in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
Greatly enjoyed the friendships reinvigorated during the event. With my lovely wife, met many other significant others and established memories that we will still speak about today.
Revisiting this picture was a reminder that I am thoroughly enjoying the ‘continuous learning’ journey that has shaped my career. Success is a destination built on lots of long nights, exploring innovative ideas, and meeting the challenge of learning something new every single day. It’s not where you start, it’s where you finish that makes all the difference.
