His name is Dhani Jones. He was a middle linebacker in the NFL from 2000 to 2011, from the New York Giants to the Eagles to the Cincinnati Bengals. And that’s only part of the story. Dhani hosts TV shows on The Travel Channel and CNBC, publishes a book about his sport, starts companies and creative agencies and invests in visionary organizations that are shaping the future, all while working for equality in our schools and workplaces. He’s one of the most inspiring people I know, in a rare class of doers — the kind that talks the talk and walks the walk. In this episode of ‘All Your Days,’ Dhani Jones is my mind-blowingly passionate guest for a deep talk about persistence and recognition, passion, curiosity — and about exhaustion as a process rather than an obstacle. It’s a big one. This is Dhani Jones.
