Make Your Bed

Admiral William McRaven gave a commencement speech to the Class of 2014 that subsequently went viral. Given the many speeches over many years, this is one of the best. Watch it yourself at You will be pumped after watching it.

  1. Make your bed - You'll start off with a completed task and come back to something you're proud of when you get back home.

  2. Stand up to the sharks

  3. Measure people by the size of their hearts

  4. One person can change the world by giving people hope

  5. Life is not fair and you will fail often

Watching this video made me recall the context of which I first watched it.  We were in the middle of a lot of change within an organization.  I will reflect on this event at another time.
