    Don t get me wrong, the author is an American hero and he deserves to make a buck with his advice and anecdotes, all wrapped up in time for graduation gift giving I don t doubt for a second that this advice is good for anyone who anticipates a military career You should learn how to make your bed with military precision, and you should appreciate teamwork, get over yourself and accept that life is not fair, and never give up, etc.,etc The obvious problem with this type of one size fits all ad Don t get me wrong, the author is an American hero and he deserves to make a buck with his advice and anecdotes, all wrapped up in time for graduation gift giving I don t doubt for a second that this advice is good for anyone who anticipates a military career You should learn how to make your bed with military precision, and you should appreciate teamwork, get over yourself and accept that life is not fair, and never give up, etc.,etc The obvious problem with this type of one size fits all advice is that some people who shouldn t be listening to it use it to justify their behavior For example, one of my pet peeves is people who are obese but have perfectly salon manicured nails The reason it bugs me is that those people spent time and money sitting in a nail salon when they should have been out exercising walking at the very least If you talk to them about it, you will find they think they don t have time for exercise or money for a gym but the one area of their lives they can control is their salon perfect nails They probably made their beds too using the same logic I can t control the rest of my day but my bed is made Can you imagine telling Jackson Pollack that things would go better for him if he just made his bed every morning or telling Leo Tolstoy to beof a team player As for never giving up, the author is certain that all of the people in his training program are sorry that they gave up when they did They might be, but I bet they re not as sorry as the families of those who died trying to make the program and pushed themselves beyond their tolerance I m just saying it s a charming notion to think that focusing on the small stuff will lead to greater accomplishment But maybe we shouldn t sweat the small stuff Hey a good idea for a book

    Straight talk from a former Navy SEALThere are many self help books on the market that contain solid information However, General McRaven s Make Your Bed comes across as refreshingly different from those books by well known self help gurus like Dr Phil or Tony Robbins mainly because the anecdotes he uses to illustrate his ten key points are gleaned from his experiences as a Navy SEAL I read this little book in one sitting and plan to buy copies for my children In a nutshell, McRaven says t Straight talk from a former Navy SEALThere are many self help books on the market that contain solid information However, General McRaven s Make Your Bed comes across as refreshingly different from those books by well known self help gurus like Dr Phil or Tony Robbins mainly because the anecdotes he uses to illustrate his ten key points are gleaned from his experiences as a Navy SEAL I read this little book in one sitting and plan to buy copies for my children In a nutshell, McRaven says that life is tough, but meeting challenges with discipline, determination, a positive attitude and the support of others will most often lead an individual to a meaningful life that will inspire others

    I don t know why I requested this book, I thought maybe it ll inspire me to make my bed or inspire me to accomplish stuff.I should have checked the blurb and the author Thank goodness it was a very short book The author is an admiral, former SEAL, etc I would like to say that these accolades impress me, but that would be a lie After reading the preface, I remembered seeing his commencement speech given at some American university While it makes sense to make your bed if anything to start y I don t know why I requested this book, I thought maybe it ll inspire me to make my bed or inspire me to accomplish stuff.I should have checked the blurb and the author Thank goodness it was a very short book The author is an admiral, former SEAL, etc I would like to say that these accolades impress me, but that would be a lie After reading the preface, I remembered seeing his commencement speech given at some American university While it makes sense to make your bed if anything to start your day accomplishing something it is simplistic, and depending on your personality, it may not mean much to you anyway The rest of the book has some SEAL training examples and personal snippets, but nothing groundbreaking or enlighting, it s the usual trite don t give up, you ll have difficulties, you need a team etc most of them go in the duh you think so category To save yourself 20 mins or so, watch the youtube video.If you re after great according to me inspirational speeches here s one of my favourites, given by the very talented and very intelligent Tim Minchin Enjoy
