I wanted to share a powerful YouTube video and speech by a US admiral.
He says, “If you want to change the world, start by making your bed.”
The statement is laughed at in the beginning of the speech, but there is a much greater meaning and is worth watching.
My biggest takeaway from it:
Focus on getting things DONE.
Even the little thing. GET THEM DONE.
Professionalism is displayed at every level.
Someone who does not clean after himself, who has messy bed, who is unkempt, will never take care of his job or business.
Don’t expect to have someone on your team perform who is not professional on the little things too.
While there might be an exception to all things – I think it is a good rule of thumb.
I am pretty sure there is a book written by this guy, if you know what it is, comment below. I’d love to get it on Audible and give a review on it in another blog.
