    Don't get me wrong the author is an American hero and he deserves to make a buck with his advice and anecdotes all wrapped up in time for graduation gift giving I don't doubt for a second that this advice is good for anyone who anticipates a military career You should learn how to make your bed with military precision and you should appreciate teamwork get over yourself and accept that life is not fair and never give up etcetc The obvious problem with this type of one size fits all advice is that some people who shouldn't be listening to it use it to justify their behavior For example one of my pet peeves is people who are obese but have perfectly salon manicured nails The reason it bugs me is that those people spent time and money sitting in a nail salon when they should have been out exercising walking at the very least If you talk to them about it you will find they think they don't have time for exercise or money for a gym but the one area of their lives they can control is their salon perfect nails They probably made their beds too using the same logic I can't control the rest of my day but my bed is madeCan you imagine telling Jackson Pollack that things would go better for him if he just made his bed every morning or telling Leo Tolstoy to be of a team player As for never giving up the author is certain that all of the people in his training program are sorry that they gave up when they did They might be but I bet they're not as sorry as the families of those who died trying to make the program and pushed themselves beyond their tolerance I'm just saying it's a charming notion to think that focusing on the small stuff will lead to greater accomplishment But maybe we shouldn't sweat the small stuff Hey a good idea for a book

    5 well earned stars for this motivational story of Admiral William H McRavens journey to becoming a navy seal This book was written and narrated in 2017 by the Admiral himself The book also includes his famous commencement speech which took place on May 21st 2014 for the graduating class of the University of Texas at AustinAdmiral McRaven speaks of 10 steps to follow if you want to change your life or maybe the worldI won't list the steps here however I will say that I was very 'taken' by this book and the Admirals experiences as well as those who served with him to make the USA and the world a safer place The book is only 12 short chapters but is loaded with life changing information that can lead 'any' individual to find purpose and self worth in improving their life and the lives of others I recommend this book to all my GR friends and to all others as well

    I don't know why I reuested this book I thought maybe it'll inspire me to make my bed or inspire me to accomplish stuffI should have checked the blurb and the author Thank goodness it was a very short book The author is an admiral former SEAL etc I would like to say that these accolades impress me but that would be a lie After reading the preface I remembered seeing his commencement speech given at some American university While it makes sense to make your bed if anything to start your day accomplishing something it is simplistic and depending on your personality it may not mean much to you anyway The rest of the book has some SEAL training examples and personal snippets but nothing groundbreaking or enlighting it's the usual trite don't give up you'll have difficulties you need a team etc most of them go in the duhyou think so? category To save yourself 20 mins or so watch the youtube videoIf you're after great according to me inspirational speeches here's one of my favourites given by the very talented and very intelligent Tim Minchin Enjoy

    MAKE YOUR BED is a thoughtful meditation of an American hero’s collective experiences SUMMARY
On May 17 2014 Admiral William H McRaven addressed the graduating class of the University of Texas at Austin on their commencement day taking inspiration from the University slogan “what starts here changes the world” He shared ten principles he learned during his Navy seal training that helped him overcome challenges not only in his training and long naval career but also throughout his life“If you make your bed every morning you will have accomplished your first task of the day It will give you a small sense of pride and will encourage you to do another task and another and another By the end of the day that one task completed will turn into many tasks completed Making your bed will reinforce the fact that little things in life matter”REVIEW
McRaven recounts many poignant tales from his naval training and military experiences that served as the impetus for his ten principles It was very interesting having a small window into SEAL training The principle are sage advice of heart perseverance courage and risk The book seems redundant at times but the message was good Loved learning about the SEAL uniue recipe for sugar cookies MAKE YOUR BED would be a good gift for new high school and college graduates who may potentially facing challenges and workplace adversity for the first time Overall the book is a short uick and entertaining read
