I was reading an article and i countered a sentence which i couldn't get the right meaning of it..
Every year, I sort back through what was published to highlight the books that changed how I saw the world. Thatís the bar. This year I completely changed my view about the purpose of holding a meeting, I realized startups search for business models and I became more aware of the mental traps programming into my mind. And that is just the start.
my question is.. what does it mean bar here in the text ?
Yes.. his name is Todd Sattersten.
"There have been some great comedy written this year at the expense of the book publishing."
I'm doing my translation .. so should i skip that part :(?
My only understanding of "That's the bar" would be that the person has set a level that he has to use as his minimum base level by which he measures things. He probably read a lot of books but he decided to "set the bar" (taken from the sport of high jumping, I think) at the books which actually made him change his view of the world.
