Extreme Ownership - HARDCORE Leadership Lessons from the Navy SEALs - Jocko Willink and Leif Babin

Extreme Ownership

What I am about to say will probably shock you. 

You may not like hearing it, but you have to admit that it is absolutely true.

Recognize, also, that it impacts your future, and long-term prosperity. Here goes... 

There are three kinds of people: 

  1. People that blame other people for their mistakes 

  2. People that cover up their mistakes

  3. People who own their mistakes ... and learn from them.

It is this third type of person you want to be.

All human progress, since the dawn of mankind, has been made by this third person—no exceptions...

The problem is—no matter which person you are; first, second, or third, you probably don't know how to move up to the higher (let alone the HIGHEST) levels.

That's where this book can help.

If you are a mover, shaker, doer—someone who’s always committed to action, achievement and maximizing opportunity—this book will show you how to broaden your scope of opportunities AND see you at a higher broader sense of what’s possible..

If you are someone who tends to stagnate, contemplate, and rarely initiate growth activities or expansion actions—you need this book (!) to turn you from a mere “plodding along existence” into a growth maximizer.

Just by shifting your thinking and focus, you can quickly advance upward and forward at a rapid rate.

FINALLY—if you’re someone who operates timidly, reactively, non-responsively...OR you feel more like a spectator up in the stands, than a player on the business field of life—this book can totally change (no, make that totally transform) your thinking, actions, and tactical capability.

Going from mediocrity to greatness as a person is probably the most exciting, fulfilling and engaging move you could make.

It will animate your spirit.

It will stimulate your intellect.

It will re-invigorate your entrepreneurial side and get it going and growing—for the first time in a long time (or, perhaps for the first time EVER).

This is the book that I was looking for, for a long time.

It answers the simple question: "WHAT IS LEADERSHIP?"

The answer to that question is always different depending on who you ask.

And that was bothering me!

There can't be 100 different answers!

Doesn't anyone have a simple and definitive answer?

Yup here it is:



P.S. there's an old ZEN saying:

   The purpose of a fishtrap is to catch fish, and when the fish are caught, the trap is forgotten.

   The purpose of a rabbit snare is to catch rabbits. When the rabbits are caught, the snare is forgotten.

   The purpose of words is to convey ideas. When the ideas are grasped, the words are forgotten.

    Where can I find a man who has forgotten words? He is the one I would like to talk to.         --Chuang-Tsu
