BHP 027: Logan Gelbrich | Leadership, Standards, Progress and Disconfirming Information

Like an alchemist who turns lead into gold, Logan Gelbrich is developing epic humans, leaders, and high performing organizations one strongman class at a time

Movement and fitness may be the vehicles for Logan’s work, but his true impact is much deeper and more significant

Everyone who meets Logan agrees – there is something special about him. He’s a rare breed, and it’s an honor to call Logan a friend and guest on the @the.betterhumanproject podcast

I realize I post and ask you to listen to our BHP’s every week. This is episode that everyone should listen to – not because it’s the next episode of “my podcast” – but because Logan is that damn good.

A few of my takeaways from this epic conversation:

  1. Deliberate practice and deep work

  2. The palm tree analogy: Mind the gap

  3. Go right —>

  4. Self respect > Selfless

  5. Seek disconfirming information

  6. Don’t tolerate in victory what you would not tolerate in defeat. (Focus on actions and processes, not results)
