Dan John on why we need standards
“Standards,” says Dan John, “help clarify the conversation. They expose gaps.”
Dan John is back again, this time to discuss why we need standards, in everything from lifting to reading, and more.
We have a fun with this episode, going at the topic of standards through Dan John’s lists of favorite books, movies, and albums–why these works meant to him, what he got out of them, and how they shaped his philosophy on lifting and life. In other words, how they helped him to develop standards.
He also has a special assignment for YOU, listener. Be sure to hear what that is.
