Two weeks ago I had the honor of spending a private afternoon with Commander of SEAL Team 3 and Tactical Instructor for the Navy SEALS, Jocko Willink. I became aware of Jocko thru his first book “Extreme Ownership” (a NY Times best-seller – a GREAT read). That book changed my life, opened my eyes, and taught me to take ownership of my mistakes –complete ownership, to never blame, and to remain on a life-path of growth, constant improvement, and humility.
I would later learn that Jocko and I have a mutual friend – and it was thru this friendship that our meeting was set.
Our scheduled 1 hour meeting lasted for 3 hours… I asked him dozens of questions – he would speak – I would listen… and learn – much of what he said touched my soul.
Thank you Jocko, thank you for your dedication to excellence, your dedication to constant improvement, your humble spirit, your ability to listen and to place the needs of the team, and the mission, ahead of your own. Thank you for showing me the areas of my life where I need to improve – to up my game -to do it better and to stay on the life-path of constant improvement, to be more humble, to talk less and to listen more.
Thank you Jocko Thank you for your service!! Thank you for your friendship and for your trust!!
