The week Brad and Dan get together to discuss setting and upholding a standard. Society sets the standard at average and we talk about how to exceed that and bring standards to the next level.
Brad is the founder of BP Fabrication LLC which specializes in fabrication of parts for racecars in the motorsport industry.
Listen along as we discuss the perfectionism of Steve Jobs and Justin Bieber and how their endless pursuit of improvement led to their success. We also get into how your circumstances, whether good or bad, do not define you as a person or your potential as a leader.
We also tackle whether you should have someone in your life continually hold you to a higher standard. Your mentors should be tough, and we talk about why that will elevate you.
Finally, we discuss integrity and the importance of personal accountability. We touch on Jocko Willink, David Goggins, Tiger Woods, and Tom Brady and their hunt to always improve themselves.
Leaders have relentlessly high standards — many people may think these standards are unreasonably high.
The quality of a leader is reflected in the standards they set for themselves.
Sometimes the issue is simply their ceiling is your floor.
Don’t allow your feelings to dictate how you show up.
Always get your “musts” done, not your “shoulds.”
