Reading: Make Your Bed by Admiral William H. McRaven

One of the best books I’ve read this year. If I had a lot of disposable income the. This would be the book I give out to people for the holidays. A great book about ten lessons Admiral William H. McRaven learned during his Navy Seal training. It reminded me so much of my late grandfather.

  1. Start off your day by making your bed
  2. Find someone to help you paddle
  3. Measure a person by the size of your heart
  4. Life’s not fair-Drive On!
  5. Failure Can Make You Stronger. Don’t be afraid of the circus
  6. You Must Dare Greatly. If you want to change the world… slide down the obstacle head first
  7. Stand Up To Bullies. Don’t back down from the sharks.
  8. Rise to the Occasion. Be your very best in the darkest moments.
  9. Give People Hope. Start singing when you’re up to your neck in mud.
  10. Never, Ever Quit! Don’t ever, ever ring the bell.
