Make Your Bed by William H. McRaven

Start your day with a completed task.  That’s why you make your bed – so that your brain will have a sense of accomplishment first thing in the morning.  I suppose if someone is still sleeping in it when you get up (often my case), you could find something else that’s super simple to complete.

Life isn’t fair.  You can do everything right, be the absolute best you can, and life will still shit all over you.  Get used to that, and expect it.

When you do fail, it can make you stronger if you let it.  Accept it, lean into it, and get all you can out of it.

Dare greatly.  Take (calculated) risks.

“If you want to change the world… start singing when you’re up to your neck in mud.”

Never ring the bell!

“Remember… start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone. Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often. But if you take some risks, step up when times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden, and never, ever give up—if you do these things, then you can change your life for the better… and maybe the world!”

You can change the world – change 10 people, who in turn change 10 people, who in turn change 10 people… and eventually the world has changed.

(just make sure it’s for the better.)
