Attitude

My favorite part of Jim Wendler’s writing is the attitude. I took “If you want something, EARN it” as the theme of 5/3/1." Any satisfying achievement comes through busting your ass. The emphasis on personal responsibility seems to be diminishing in our society and I appreciate his efforts to bring it back. For anyone who feel similarly, I have a book recommendation:

Why we Suck: A feel good guide for staying fat, loud, lazy, and stupid.
