Memorial Day

Parades, stones, plaques, trees and many other things like these are commonly used as memorials.  They are important ways for us to remember key events and people have meant so much to us.  Today, in our country, we memorialize and remember all of those who served, fought, sacrificed, and died so that we would be free. But a memorial is meant to be more than just a memory.

The book, Extreme Ownership, is written by former Navy SEALs, Jocko Willink and Leif Babin.  In it, these American heroes relate their stories and many of the lessons they have learned and demonstrate how this principle of Extreme Ownership is invaluable in all of life and business. While there are many takeaways that could be pointed out, I want to focus this short blog post on just 3 key lessons that are absolutely essential and can change how you approach life and business every day.

A while back I wrote about some of the best advice I’d ever received.  You can read it about here.  It is, obviously, some GREAT advice that may be worth implementing in your life right away!  But it got me thinking about how much bad advice is out there, too.  Like some of these doozies. “Always look down the barrel of a gun to make sure it’s not loaded.” “Pull my finger.  You’ll like it.” “Close your eyes.  Trust me!” Don’t you wish that all bad advice were so obvious!?  Me too.  However, some of the worst advice can sound deceptively good.  Like the ones I mention next.  It is some of the worst advice ever. The sad news is: I bet someone has given this advice to you! […]
