Shane Parrish: I want to come back to something we said earlier about standards. And so one pattern that I’ve seen in outliers or highly successful people is that they tend to have higher standards than other people, but their standards for how they spend their time, standards for the work that they accept or expect out of themselves and others, for relationships, for everything—it’s like the bar is raised. And this can cause problems when they expect it from other people, too, because I think they tend to expect it from themselves and then because they expect it from themselves, they expect it from other people. I mean, what’s your take on standards and bars that people set for excellence?
