Good episode? Give it some love!
There is a level of sacrifice that some can’t even fathom losing. We unwrap the amazing documentary on Netflix called “The Dawn Wall” starring Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson where a perfect example of sacrifice, dedication and obsession resulted in achieving the unimaginable - free climbing El Capitan in Yosemite.

In today’s show we discuss what it truly requires to be great, amazing, the best in the world, the stuff of legacy. But what exactly is the cost? There’s always a cost. Whether you like it or don’t believe it, it's damn true!

The boys poise the question to each other on what being ultra dedicated and obsessed about achieving a landmark goal really means. The countless hours, meticulous planning and above all, the ultimate sacrifices that take place. Would you be willing to put your obsession above things like your partner? Your kids? Financial impacts? What about those people that take the ride with you? Is there sacrifice to allow you to accomplish your dream a bigger achievement than yours? All discussed, true JTW style. Enjoy Fam!!
