Let's it still really sars to is a pandemic so we talked about this a lot and we have talked about it a lot. And i i will say this I have family family members and friends and people who disagree with me. And i have some friends who think that this is just something we have to. We have to come together for the common good. How much is your life worth. You know what would change the opinion of a lot of people a lot of people out there watching where you think okay. It's about it's about keeping people home now going on what six nine months right if you really talk about some places. They've been locked down plus okay. You just paid a million dollars in taxes you have a million and payroll to meet or fifteen people are unemployed. Tomorrow go that. Change your opinion a little bit folks. There is no. Do you have any idea how much i would love a covid. A co vacation a kobe. -cation get corona -cation. Let's go with exclusive young thing. Yeah you're on how much love to take six months off. Four months off shutdown. Get a two month break. Guess what everyone here job. That's how much is your life. Or how much is a livelihood with people. Fought wars over lessons because the ability to hunt that graham. Oh that's a place. That's where all the the buffalo are which by they were hunted to extinction. Hey i'm grateful for thanksgiving that we took your land. So thanks yeah. Buffalo conservationist the native american painting was colors of the wind. My ass they would fight. They would kill people over. We want ford hunt. Why because being able to provide a livelihood was your life neutral somehow separate that. Now it is. Which is your life fourth. You've a million dollars in payroll to make go or everyone loses their job. Jaakko willink has been in war chaka willing because kill terrorists will sing. White of there is for crying out loud and he still gets up at three forty five. I don't buy it and he goes back to bed but little nap. And there's more pressure on business owners because you're dealing with the livelihoods of many people not just lives and it's on going. When he was on the show he talked about that. He said there are very comparable here. So this is really important to note. Because i say that because a million dollars in payroll. Let's say typical small businesses. Yeah or half a million dollars again. People who collect check from a business owner who you likely hate. Imagine you have to pay out half a million dollars dollars in payroll and you just paid a million dollars in texas. This is not atypical. for small businesses. Those are the people who've had to shutter their businesses in record numbers since the great recession. Likely if this continues since the great depression people need to keep in mind but the big business has continued to profit Just like big banks just like big auto just like big unions..

The Ceiling You Can't Break Through is Made By You

"This is Jaakko podcast number two, fifty, three with Dave Burke and meet Jaakko willink. Good evening. Gave good evening. So. Last couple of podcast to fifty one with Leif Bob and two, fifty, two also day burke we're continuing to make our way through. This book right here guidelines for the leader and Commander by General Bruce Clark. Leif and I made it up to page thirteen. David I. Last time we made it up to page twenty eight. There's one hundred seventeen page book. Just almost impossible not to find lessons and say to yourself. I don't need to worry about that section right there. So the take these. Experiences from this. Leader Commander. and trying to play him and this this book was the guidebook. For my biggest mentor Colonel, David Hackworth. Author about-face. And there's so many threats. I just noticed that thread today or on the last podcast, the thread between General Clark and making the men stand to them being okay with it once they almost got overrun and Hackworth just there the threads just connected on that last podcast. So the threads keep getting connected. If, you want to see the threads of the way hackworth learn to lead. Which? In turn taught me how to lead they all tie right back, General Clark so that's we're doing. We're tracking these left lessons to their root cause to their route. To the source. And learning as we do it. So part three of guidelines for the leader and Commander by General Bruce. Clark. first-section section we get into today. One Chapter Five. The conduct of inspections? And I'll tell you there's as I was as I was parsing this book the first time I prepped for it I thought late and I we're GONNA get through half of it. And I thought Leith and I will do back to back podcast we'll be half, one podcast. So, we'd cover sixty or so pages, and then we do have we do come to him back to back. We made it through thirteen pages. So now as I'm reading it, I'm looking for like the breaking point where I can go. Okay. This is a good section this section today the the end of this section where to cover today is It's it's. It's freaking. Epic I'm I don't feel that we're around very often. So we'll get there but this this chapter five starts off with. The. Conduct of inspections and the first question is why inspect and then it says there is a saying in his nation does well, only those things the boss checks. This truism originated insofar as I am concerned from a speech that I heard made by vice president of one of our largest corporations this is not a new thought to anyone who has military experience because I have often heard it expressed as anything that has not been inspected has been neglected. I changed the way I said that word neglected, but it made it sound a lot better. So anything that has not been inspected has been neglected. If these things are true and I think they are it follows that anyone who has important position must be able to check in on or inspect the operations which he's responsible Leif when life saw this. I. Think I sent a picture of this delay because this is you know a line that I hear life say a lot. It's a line that he heard me say a lot and we always attributed to, Hackworth. We always attributed to Hackworth. And guess what it didn't come from ACWORTH. So how to inspect return about how to inspect civilians often think of a non commissioned officer and officer as a demon inspector. A demon. Inspector a good inspector is certainly not a demon but good inspectors are not plentiful in the army or out of it however, to be a successful non commission officer or a successful officer wants to be a competent inspector. This quality cannot be attained without a considerable amount of study planning and practice now. This is interesting because. I wasn't sure how much of this section to cover because. Inspections are not something that I utilize to any great extent as a leader. When I was a leader I didn't inspections was not one of my big tools. And so I thought well, you know. We'll talk about it. You certainly have to inspect things and I get that and that's why I would say that Hey, an organization does well, the boss checks. I've said that many times and I believe it but also. I believe that if I have to inspect you that means I'm doing something wrong somewhere else you know what I'm saying like if I've got it if my Gig I've to inspect you. That means I'm making some other kind of mistake somewhere because. Should I have to inspect your weapon is ready. Should I have to inspect that you've prepared for an operation I have to inspect that you've done the work that you're supposed to I shouldn't have to inspect if I've led correctly. Then You know why you're doing what you're doing, and therefore you don't really need to get inspected because you understand the why you make things happen. So I've always had that attitude. It's been very successful for me. So I wasn't sure how was sure how much I was going to get into this whole inspection mode because what I don't want to do is create a bunch of leaders that are going out there becoming these inspection. Happy. Dig Down How come and inspect you use funny with my kids. A belief the. Whenever my wife's not around my kids are they have to do everything right? And so I'll say are you what time will you be ready for inspection? They just get so they know what that means I'm going to inspect I'm going to inspect any better squared away so. I didn't want to create I. Don't want to pass on this. This idea that hey, gotta be Inspection Inspection Freak.

Guidelines for the Leader and Commander

"Is Jaakko podcast number two, fifty two. With Dave Burke and me Jaakko willink good evening. Dave. Good Evening Echo Charles is taking care of some other business. On the last podcast. Number two, fifty, one with Leif and we started getting into the book guidelines for the leader and Commander by General Bruce Clark but we only made it thirteen pages in two and a half hours, and it's one hundred, seventeen page book. To, recap a little bit, this is a book that I searched for for over a decade I originally heard about this book in my favorite book, which is called about face by colonel. David Hackworth. Finally, found a copy a month and a half ago. and. So here we are just a little background once again on General Bruce. Kark. World War One. World War Two Korea enlisted in one thousand, nine hundred and up going to west point colonel in World War Two. Then a general commanded the Fourth Armored Division in Patents Third Army. Battle the Bulge Distinguished Service Cross three silver stars forty five years. Of Service? And then spend a bunch of time not only leading troops but also training troops or overseeing training commands so. Awesome Career Hackworth talked about him glowingly in the book about face and That's where that's where the star took me a long time to find this book. Who did somebody texted me about it. And said, it was the white whale. that. It was definitely hard for me find this book, but we have it and that's it. That's what we're GonNa do where do you go back into this book? So here we go back into guidelines for the leader and commander by Bruce General Bruce C Clarke. This section starts off with administration some thoughts for the commander. And he says inflammation, I would like to point out the close. Interrelationship between training programs. And Sound. Overall management. So this is something you know when you're that young gung-ho leader. That just thinks, hey, where you're operate whatever that operation is whether it's shooting machine guns or whether that's out selling things or making things and you think, Hey, I'm I'm on the front lines I'm going to make things happen and you think all the administrative stuff you shouldn't have to worry about. That's not me. And I know many individuals that are like that I know one individual in particular like that whose name is Jaakko. 'cause I was definitely like that. Many commanders. I should say I. was like that when I was younger because I absolutely I realize this and you can hear. We'll talk about the paperwork drills that we had to do and how. Life. Came to me. We shouldn't have to do this stuff and I said Oh we're going to do it and we do a better than anybody else. So I figured this out but it is it is definitely a learning moment that people have and so why not learn it right now many commanders are defeated by poor administration. Imagine that just that statement many commanders are defeated by poor administration not defeated because they were tactically unsound not defeated because they made bad decisions not defeated because they couldn't come up with a good plan they fail because their administrative losers. Without. Sound Administration at Commander CanNot Succeed in his training and maintenance programs. Good. Administration is nothing more than applied common sense. I'm including here a number of items that may well be considered a checklist of indicators of sound. Administration. Number. One. Importance of time. The principal coordinating device in the army is time. Learn the proper time space factors. So you can be on time and make reasonable demands of your subordinates. So. So that's number one by the way, which is probably why you hear a lot of talk about time management. Just think about the idea that the first thing he's GonNa say is time this is someone who clearly understands that have all the resources in the world that we have. That's the one that matters the most because we just can't produce more of. I was GONNA say it's the it's the one that matters the most and it's the absolute one that we have the least control much control. You have time you zero you cannot stop it. You cannot bring it back. You gotta say the power curve. I hate that fewing. I hate that feeling and let me tell you what. I realized this a while back. So when you go to the airport if you show up at the airport late. In now look TSA doesn't care that you're late the baggage handler doesn't care that you're late the uber driver does not care what time your planes leaving they're they're doing what they're doing, and so what that does is it takes you have no control. Over that time once it started to commence, what do you have control over going to the airport a little bit earlier? That's all. That's all not that big of a deal. Go to the airport a little earlier, and you won't have to worry about TSA. You won't have to worry about baggage you won't have to worry about. How long it takes for the Uber driver or the left let's give proper. Credit or lift driver to show up and bring you to the airport. Not so so how'd you get control? You can't control time once it's unfolding you can't bring it back you have to you have to plan for appropriately. And there's a there's a sense of urgency and I have a pretty good sense of urgency and you you may have may or may not I know like at the monster especially the earlier musters when we weren't. When the backside wasn't quite the well oiled machine that it is now certainly as a well oiled machine now the early musters do. Not a Well oiled machine. So on the on the front side, people would know that when Leith and I were walking out on stage at eight o'clock in the morning, we had two hours sleep because we had to do whatever we had to do behind the scenes and that's just the way it was. I can feel I can feel. When the shortage of time in fact, I think I feel the shortage of time every single day single waking minute.

What's Your Story

"This is the Jaakko unraveling podcast episode nine with Daryl Cooper and me Jaakko, willink. So. Last time we were talking about. The stories that we tell ourselves and then how We get stories in groups in those start to expand in those start to unify people together. And it seems that we have an instinct towards. Some level of those. Stories unifying us to a point to where we start to drift into just straight tribalism. And then we actually use those stories and change those stories. As a tool to strengthen our tribes even more. And I know you had some some interesting stories, slash myths. That that that kind of represent that very well throughout history we've seen this it's it's it's tapping into. A basic. A basic way that our mind structures reality for us right I mean if you think about. How you teach. The youngest children something if you need to teach them something, you need him to tie their shoes right? How you GonNa do that through imitation you're gonNA show them do what I do. Right that's the same thing that like chimpanzees how they teach their children things. As they get a little bit older was the next way that you're going to teach them stuff probably maybe by like five six, seven years old you're GonNa Start Teaching them basic things about what a good person behaves like whatever you're GonNa do it through stories right? That's like the next level up. It's like later on down the road, you can start talking about kind of concepts right? You can start teaching them. Teaching somebody things in terms of you know instead of telling you a story about prince charming and this is how a man should treat a woman. You're going to learn through this story and internalized that maybe later on, we can say this is the essence of love and how love operates and Blah Blah Blah but stories narrative is how we how we structure reality and understand things and very, very profound way. Yeah. I've written a bunch of books. The two of the leadership books that I've written actually all three of the leadership books that have written are. Heavily based on stories stories from combat and then stories from the civilian sector. And and obviously people the feedback I get all the time and we have the principles written in there in extreme ownership in their leadership. We write the principal clearly in there. Hey, this is called covered move. This is what it means. But people never say Oh, thanks for spelling out the principal for me. They say Oh love the way you guys told the story in that I could see it. So yeah, this is not just something that we do for kids I mean the. With US sticks with US forever, and it's such a great way to to get your point across much more powerful way and for certain things, it's the only way. Right I. Mean. There's just like you're not gonNA tell somebody breakdown into philosophical concepts had a tie your shoes. You just got shown him and tell him i. do there are certain things that? You just have to use a story. That's the only thing that's really going to serve that purpose and elucidating the principles we are really doing there is saying, okay, you know all those stories this one, I just told you in the book. Yeah. But all those other ones you've always heard and there's that there's that thing that the leaders are doing something. This is what it is right and so you're drawing out that communality and those stories by stating the principles. interesting when you said. These you actually brought it up perfectly in my mind. When you said these stories, we tell ourselves can be unifying, and then that same story can become like a divisive type of tribalism right and it reminded me of this this book. call. It's book about the. Rwandan. Genocide by Philip Gourevich who also wrote a really powerful book on Abu Ghraib actually it's very, very You, know? Eric. Weinstein. Actually knows that guy believe he's married to a friend of their family and if at all possible I think it'd be a great guy for you to talk to certainly possible. Just incredibly, morally sensitive writer just a very, very interesting guy anyway, and so in this book about the Rwandan genocide, what's it called we wish to inform you that tomorrow will be killed with our families. I have that one I haven't done it yet. Man I I did Michetti season was kind of. All right. There's one there's one more maybe it's that one life life laid bare? Probably switching is by the same guy who wrote. Interviews the victims brutal. It's as brutal as you think. Yeah. and. So in this book, we wish to inform you that tomorrow we will be killed with our families Goes through when it's just harrowing book as You can imagine at the end of it. He relates this story. That took place. As the genocide was winding down I believe in this girl's school in Rwanda. Some of the entire homeway militias were still running around the rebels had come back and we're pushing back against him, but this was still ongoing. And a bunch of them came into this girl school. And we're trying to figure out who are the Tuzi. So we can kill them all. And they were telling him you know who to girls on one side tootsie girls to the others and on the other side and either girl he's a grade school girls. They refuse to separate themselves out from the Tuzi girls in so that they could know who they were, and one of the girls said that there are no who Tuzi here. There are only Rwandans here. And a lot of them died they all the killed, all of them rather than kill none of them and eventually somebody came broke it up, but a lot of them died. And if you think of that like Whoa okay That's something that in a lot of context were told is a dirty word that's nationalism right I mean that's what it is. Nationalism in the United States is what got Irish people and Italian people in German people to say Oh Germany's attacking people in Europe. We gotta get together and go over there and stop them right. Very unifying thing. That same force is what got Germany to start the fight in the first place. And so identity is a very interesting thing because you go up above the blood level. And everything after the blood level is a story. That's what it is right and you need a story to keep it together. You look at a place like United States we need a story more than anybody.

Knowing What Leads to Victory

"This is Jaakko podcast number to forty five with Echo Charles in me Jaakko willink good evening Echo vide-. Also joining tonight is Dave Burke leaving dave good evening. Did you make it to the status of Honorary Co host. Yes No. As thinking, we're getting their people want to know why they call him a good deal Dave. This. The fact that we've been talking about this is why check back again tonight with more combat lessons from the. From the document called combat lessons. Document written in the throes of World War Two and what they were doing interviewing. Frontline leaders and front line troops. Fact. The subtitle is rank and file in combat what they're doing and how they're doing. We've covered to these so far, and this is the third one. And you know sometimes I, think you know, I mean, we kinda get the idea right and I'll start thumbing s I started thumbing through. This one is you know do we really need to cover another one of these? So I started coming through it and you start reading these things. And I can't put it down and I'm still learning and so. I figure if I'm learning, we can all learn. Why why try to hold back from the people? No reason. We can get right into it. So here, this combat lessons. Volume Three. and. We've done to these so far actually I forget what number podcast they are, but we've covered to these volumes is the third volume. And this is what all the volume start off with this. The paramount combat lesson learned from every operation is the vital importance of leadership. which is really an interesting thing that we say. Every single time we talk to people are equipment or supply, and above are all men and above all our men are splendid. Aggressive and determined leadership is the priceless factor which inspires a command and upon which all success in battle depends. It is responsible for success or failure. And that is. July third, nineteen, forty, four. Starts. Off just jumping right into leadership command need for leadership comments received from all active theatres continue to emphasize the need for competent and aggressive leaders. This is especially true as regards junior officers and noncommissioned officers. Who tended General Courtney Hodges who observed operations in? North Africa and Italy stated. Before, I even get to that. Why is it? So why is it just so awesome? That they're just pointing out over and over and over again in each one of these volumes that leadership is the most important thing on the battlefield. And yet. We. Work with companies. That have no leadership training for their people. Until Axel Homefront shows up and then I guess they do. But it's bizarre. that. It's bizarre that it is so hard. What makes it? What what day? What makes it so hard to see? That leadership is the most important thing. What do you think makes it so hard to say I. Stumped. Good. Yeah. There's a couple of things I. I don't think people. Realize how impactful leadership is almost convinced themselves that hey, are what we can do is. We bring people with these skills or are our software, Sweden. They get. So wrapped up in all these other components they lose sight of the fact that this thing intangible thing that you can't really track with the with the spreadsheet they lose sight of how important it is and I think the other part that we've seen a lot now is. People lose sight of how often you have to keep addressing leadership, and so they think it's sometimes eight. No I understand what a good leadership and they think they are applying it but they don't realize that. Hey, I've gotta keep addressing this over and over and over again and they lose sight of not just how important. But also how important is how hard it is to sustain it and we come work with companies. The more we work with them and the long work of them. The more they want to keep doing and they realize man had I had no idea how long this journey was going to be. But the ones that figured out. To. They. They. They elevate quickly they so good so fast when they make it a priority. The first thing that you said. You are defacto not detached when you're inside of a company your firefighting day to day, you're trying to figure out what the next quarter is going to be. You're trying to figure out what's going on with the sales team. So you're in it and so you you start to lose track of the fact that this is this is. All about leadership. Yeah. So that happens and that's why when we come in with a company. We can immediately see because we are detached.

The Unravelling 4: War Party

"This is the Jaakko on Raveling podcast episode four. With Daryl, Cooper and me, Jaakko willink. And, we're about to pick up the thread. Of JAAKKO GOING TO WAR I WanNa read something from. Tom ricks book fiasco early part from the earliest part of the invasion because I want to give people an idea of. The fire. You were jumping into in September, October. Two thousand three, so the war started in March. and. The conventional forces the Iraqis the resistance in the cities. Is precisely the match for the US military that you think it is, and we burn through them and. The Third Infantry Division gets up into Baghdad quick. They take the airport they make their thunder runs through the city, and the regime collapses very rapidly. That's in March early April. And this passage is. Referring, to appear now April into May. Quote. Baghdad was falling apart in front of the eyes of the US military with buildings, being looted and parents afraid to let their children outside, but no one had orders to do anything about it. Looking back several years later, Colonel Colonel Allan King the head of Civil Affairs for three ID spoke of April, two thousand, three with slow chilled tone of horror and his voice. I got to Baghdad was told. You've got twenty four hours to come up with a phase four plan. On the night of April eight Colonel John Sterling Chief of staff of three ID came to me, and said I just got off the phone with the court chief of staff, and I asked him for the reconstruction plan, and he said there isn't one so you've got twenty four hours to come up with one. King was stunned. He had been asking for months for just such a plan and had been told that when the time came, he would be given it. Lacking clear orders about what to do once. In Baghdad, the Third Infantry Division more or less stayed in place in the capital. You didn't find many dismounted patrols with three ID recalled J. Garner a retired army general, not one to lightly criticize his old peers. Kind of stayed with their platforms. That is their. And Bradley Fighting Vehicles. On April. Sixth Lieutenant Douglas Hoyt a platoon leader with three. Id saw looters for the first time. I remembered looking through the sights on my tank at people and trying to determine if they were hostile or not, he recalled later. He didn't stop them. It was not our mission at the time. The divisions official actor Action Review. States that. It had no orders to do anything else. Quote. Third Infantry Division transitioned into phase four SASSO. That's a security and stability ops with no plan from higher H. Q. IT reported. There was no guidance for restoring order in Baghdad creating an interim government, hiring government and essential services, employees, and ensuring that the judicial system was operational. The result was. A power and authority vacuum created by our failure to immediately replace key government institutions. The president announced that our national goal was regime change. This is still reading from the thirty report. That our national goal was regime change yet. There was no timely plan prepared for the obvious consequences of regime change. As a matter of law and fact, the United States is an occupying power in Iraq even if we characterize ourselves as liberators. Because of the refusal to acknowledge our occupier, status commanders did not initially take measures available to occupying powers such as imposing curfews, directing civilians to return to work and controlling the local government in populous. The failure to act after we displaced the regime creating a power vacuum, which others immediately tried to fill. Now. I. Know that War is very confusing. Thing and nobody has a plan after the first punch thrown the fight. There were. Some decisions made in the earliest days of this war that I find pretty inexplicable specifically because they went against the advice of the military and the intelligence establishment, and they were made seemingly for ideological and political.

"Or it's just a it's not the right thing to do is the bad person you did it. You know you are out there. Yeah you say in here. We should feel a sense of shame for not training hard enough for sleeping in too late for eating that extra scoop of ice cream. We should feel regret after walking by a piece of trash next to storm drain knowing full. Well we'll go straight in the ocean. We should feel bad for not tipping that hardworking. Waiter we should be embarrassed when we owe a friend money and they have to Connie remind us to pay them back when the teen guys are listened to that one. We should feel lazy for leaving our food tray on the table in a fast food restaurant even though their trash cans right there you go on you say we should be in short. Be Accountable for everything you do. It was why commander Jaakko Willink Echo Charles named one of my mentors in the team's wrote an entire book on the subject called extreme ownership. The premise of the book is quite simple. Everything is your fault be accountable take ownership take responsibility from this responsibility? You'll find freedom. Oh eight is liberating really is. It's liberating the worst thing. The worst thing is trying to look through. You're going to blame because then don't have control over it. Yeah when you say you know what this is my fault then you are free to go and make changes in your life free to fix things. It's deeper discussion about why personal responsibilities bedrock of our cultural of our of our culture and our cultural foundations and as a conservative. We always say it like. I'm always like a personal responsibility and in speeches. I tried to delve into that a lot. Deeper like this is actually. This is the argument for why it matters and it's actually quite simple. Personal responsibilities empowering and lack of personal responsibility is disempowering the other issue is it's completely unsustainable for for a society to engage in a lack of personal responsibility it's unsustainable because by definition if you're not personally responsible someone else must be responsible for you and that's fine if like you're an infant or you know you're in the my you know it's a small segment of society right you can you. Can you know again? Are Our government tries to take that into account but if you actually encourage the undermining of the foundation itself the undermining of personal responsibility as a virtue in and of itself. Which is what's happening on the left to try to undermine that cultural foundation. You're creating an unbelievably unsustainable trajectory. Where it is. We're we're we. We have more and more people were who are convinced that somebody else should be responsible for them and therefore take their own power unbelievably disempowering. And it's just I wouldn't wish that state of mind on anybody except your worst enemies you know. That's not how you treat people you love. And it's one of those things that's tempting right. It's short term gratification. It's it's seems like the easier way to go because in the short term. Hey I just got this and I didn't have to work for it. Yeah that's the short term and unfortunately we know where it ends up like a pyramid scheme. Seem saying. I'm thinking I'm getting paid or whatever because someone got to do the work at the end of the day but pyramid scheme. It's like everyone's waiting for their turn. Oleg again at the end of the day everybody crashes because WHO's doing work him no not remember. We're not doing anything that's right. I think that that I like yeah. That's my initial trying to put it together. But yeah you're right because you're building it on. Everyone's going to get money is coming from. It's basically the diffusion of responsibility is what you're talking about and sort of the tragedy of the comments as well. It's kind of a mix of all those things and it's not good. Unsustainable next chapter duty a sense of duty. My parents imbued in me a sense of duty to do that. Which has inherent value? You go on to say duty is ingrained in. The human condition are great. Religious are great religions are essentially based on a sense of duty to love God and live. Well.

I'm sure that she had to sacrifice things in order to get that done but she was able to hold onto some sort of intrinsic or extrinsic value that allowed her to move past that and get things done but she needed to get done regardless rbis of whether it was like you want to do this. You know or not and and one of the coolest moments when you do something that you didn't think you could do and look back and you're like I just did that. Yeah you know and yeah and and that's really you know in Your Business as an entrepreneur. We we hope that you guys are getting that moment where you're like I just I just have built that business.

Yeah and that's part of that positively as well you know like hanging onto the good things that you do and rewarding yourself for those so a lot of what we talked about at least from from my perspective has come from different books and things read if you want to become ridiculously intimidated. In terms of in terms of disciplined disciplined. One of my favorite quotes on discipline is disciplined equals freedom and from Jaakko willink and like I said if you WANNA become incredibly intimidated in terms of discipline. Splint go check out some of his stuff. There is really good stuff in there. Just no I keep in mind. That disciplined really does start with that tenth of a percent just show de tenth percent of growth in terms of discipline and then expand on that every day.

TACTICS. Leadership Strategy and Tactics Review. Pt 2. with Dave Berke

"This is Jaakko podcast number. Two eleven with Echo Charles and me Jaakko willink echo good evening and also joining joining us again is day burke. Good Evening Dave. Good evening and we are going to roll right back into the book leadership strategy and Tactics because we only made it halfway through on the first attempt so the first part that we did make it through was called strategy does the strategy apart and now we are getting into the tactics. Pardon section one part two section one and it starts off with this section right here becoming a leader how to succeed is a new leader. Once you've been selected as a leader. It is time to lead. What is the best way to do this? Like many things starting off on the right foot is simple but not easy. Here are some fundamental rules to keep in mind as you take command one be humble. It is an honor to be in a leadership position. Your team is counting on you to make the right decisions to don't act like you know everything you don't. The team knows that ask smart questions. Three listen ask for advice and heat it. Four treat people with respect regardless of rank. Everyone is a human being and plays an important role in the team. Treat them that way. Take care of your people and they will take care of you. Five take ownership of failures and mistakes six past credit for success up and down the chain of command seven work hard as the leader. You should be working harder than anyone else on the team. No job is beneath you. Eight have integrity. Do what you say. Say what you do. Don't lie up or down. The chain of command. Nine be balanced extreme actions actions and opinions are usually not good ten be decisive when it is time to make a decision make one eleven Build relationships that is your main goal is a leader. A team is a group of people who have relationships and trust one another otherwise it is just a disconnected incoherent cluster of people twelve lastly. Get the job done. That is the purpose of a leader to lead a team in accomplishing a mission. If you don't accomplish the mission you fail as a leader performance counts. These are straightforward rules. They they make sense on paper but they can be hard to remember implement Innate Leadership Environment Review them often look at them in the morning before meetings and when you are about to make things happen review them before you go to sleep at night soon they will become second nature but if you find yourself struggling pause reread these roles and ensure here at the you are following them so there you go straight forward because how many times has has this question come to me just took over a team just starting just got promoted it comes over and over and over and over again so these these are very simple very straight workforce to to abide by review them often no joke. 'cause guarantee you of that list at any given time you're not doing something on that list and you remind yourself what did you need to do to be successful leader and in you know what's interesting even as you say that Dave it's like yeah this is like oh I'm talking to the new guys right. I'm talking to someone that hasn't been in a leadership leaders position I'm talking to someone that's just about takeover and when when you're saying that I'm thinking but yeah he's right not just about the new is right about me one hundred percent right about me so yeah. This is becoming a leader but you might WanNa just take a look at these from time to time and see where you're at

"So to me man up is really just reach your fullest potential and stop being a little baby about it. I just think there's so many people. Out there who for whatever reason have just adopted this victim role and love the attention. I think is a lot of it that comes from being the, you know, whoa. Is me and look at all the bad stuff that happened to me rather than saying, you know, what I got delta crappy hand or I went through crappy situation. And I grew from it. I learned from it. And I'm better off because of it, exactly. It takes a certain type of mental toughness though to go. Hey this crappy thing happened. But I grew from it. Learn from it in a better person because of it, right? I mean, the fact that you can look at it through that lens. You look at it as hey, what bad thing happened to me happen for me to forge me into a better soldier, a better athlete. A better husband, a better entrepreneur better father, where some people say what happened to me caused me to be a worst husband father, entrepreneur soldier athlete. And it really depends on the filters. You're looking at through. But that's exactly it mandate. Everybody is is easier to get a ten. Then to get recognition wants to become the better, your better self. So how does a guy who's potentially listening to this that maybe even has identified that he has been playing that victim role and he's been saying to himself? This stuff is happening to me. How does he then make the shift to know? This is happening for me. I mean is it literally just making a mental shift or is there a lot more to this. You know, believe it or not the answer is simple. And I love what Jaakko Willink and Leith Babb and call, you know, talk about this in their book. I don't know they just put up dichotomy of leadership at their first book extreme ownership. I mean, they're very clear about it. It's you just have to own every single situation you have to own every single situation and the moment you take ownership the exclusive stop and the control begins. And so any guy listening to this who's used to manufacturing excuses. And by the way, that's what it is. We manufacture. We are like machines like companies industries commend you facture because the brain is so amazing. Connecting weird little. What's to come up with an excuse? Instead of a reason why we shouldn't have to suffer. And so the moment you take ownership though, you'll hear that was my fault. I didn't sleep while last night. So I'm not going to be the out today. That's my fault. So I'm gonna make sure that I get a nap in or sleep in earlier, but I'm going to go and actually get my workout in because listen lack of sleep. My kids are up in the middle of the night. I had night terrors. He cut the million reasons why I'm not going to be able to wake up in workout or you can just get up and say my mission today involves these things to be a good husband to be a good father to get my workout in to pack, my meals and to go to work and give it my all. And I am not going to stop until my mission is done and Ivan this from another navy seals. We can Jaakko in life. His name is at Ray cash. And he goes look initial and you obviously being a military, man. There's a mission, and if you wake up, and you know, these are the five things.

"Thirty k and s s. Welcome back to our final segment with Jaakko Willink and leave Baben I'm gonna give your book that I caught me of leadership that Kim Jon on he needs it. I I certainly say that at a minimum he needs a lot more than that. Oh my gosh. Could be helpful. You talk about leadership. What do you do with a leader? Who if you fall asleep and one of his meetings? He kills you. You rebel against him. That's what you do. That's crazy. It really is both of you were we headed as a world leader. I mean, we keep hearing so many things. This is the greatest country on the planet. But are we gonna get through this this incredible Meyer of attack that we're going through? I mean, everybody hates everybody lately. Are you talking about within our own country? Yeah. It's just we're eating each other alive. Yeah. Certainly there's there's some obvious polarization right now. But I think what we always have to remember is that America's strong America is powerful in America has an inner strength. That will always be there. And we've been through things that are much much worse than this polarization that we're facing right now. I mean, it it wasn't that long ago. We've literally fought a war against ourselves, and we made it through that. And so the fact that we've got some partisanship right now. We'll get through it. I think you're you're point George there. You know, the issue we talked about, you know, ex- extremes are is not where you want you want. You wanna find that balancing middle? And that's what the economy of leadership is all about. And you know, when you when you have extreme rhetoric on one side of the other. It's it's very problematic. And I I think that's a it's tough to come to the table to to talk with other folks might be on the other side of the political aisle. You know, when there's there's some really when things like, you know, Nazi or fascist and things like that are being thrown out there. I mean in the old days, you could carry on dialogue with somebody. If you didn't if you didn't agree with them nowadays, people are shouting at each other swinging at each other. I mean, it's it's everybody's tents. I can't understand why they're so tense. One thing. I will I will say is. I think a lot of the loudest voices in the media the loudest voices on social media. You know, they certainly I don't think they represent the majority of the American people, and and, you know, most people outside of the of that world there's going about their daily lives, and they're not they're not too worried about it. Because sometimes I think we get a re the Representative crew seems to be like. See those loudest voices. And you think they stand for a lot more people than maybe they really do. Well, let's go to Theresa in Boulder, Colorado. Hello, Theresa good night. And good morning to you. Yeah. I George long time. No, see, thanks. I have a question for leasing Jaakko. How much do they think that the a masculinization of our sons in school in highschool affect their ability to be good soldiers? And also, do you think that the St. might be results of that kind of teaching? Well, this Jaakko end. I definitely we have to make sure that we're raising our kids. Right. And as a matter of fact, I I wrote a couple of books about that. I wrote a couple of books with the first one is called the way of the warrior kid at the second one is called the way of the warrior kid marks mission. And the books are about a young kid. That's he's facing common problems that kids have he's he doesn't know his times tables. You can't do any pull ups. He doesn't know how to swim and he's getting picked on at school and over the summer break. He's all sad when he's heading into summer break. But luckily is uncle Jake comes to stay with them for the summer and Jake wasn't navy seal and Jake says, okay, we're gonna put you on the program and get your stronger teach you how to fight teach your timetable teach you how to study and teach you how to swim and he realizes that. These are all things that he gets even if he just steps up and makes these things happen and trains target trains correctly for them, and the feedback that I've gotten from that book is been absolutely phenomenal. Because I think you're right. Theresa that. Kids out there. Sometimes not getting challenged the way they should. And they get things on a silver spoon. And they don't get pushed as hard as they should. And that's not the right way to raise a kid. So hopefully, we're making a transition in the right direction as far as PTSD and the connection to that. I would certainly just say that the the more stable and tougher you are going into these combat situations. The last PTSD he will generally suffered. This isn't to say that some folks that she some really traumatic things, and and they're they're really incredibly tough guys. And and it just gets sued 'em and breaking down a little bit. That happens. It can happen to the best guys. But certainly mental toughness is gonna is gonna help you recover and and show some resiliency against the trauma that you face. What do you think of the leader in a company that rules by intimidation and bullying does that backfire on them eventually? It definitely backfires. I think there are people that look at us and think that well this is what jock were leaf would do. And then they really drop the hammer on the team. And and if people actually think they're leading like like, a military leader would do in that regard. And it's it's just not true it yelling and screaming at people or ruling by fear and intimidation is just not affective. It's it's not going to be effective in the long run. You know, something that we talk about is in chocolate actually wrote a chapter about this in the book because people look at him. He looks like a big scary guy. Looks like somebody that probably, you know, yells and screams at people, and and actually in the years that we worked together he never yelled unscreened me one time, even though I probably gave him hundreds of opportunities and want to do that. I'm sure, but but he didn't do that. Because it wasn't effective, and it's not the effective way to lead. So, you know, you gotta hold people accountable, which means you gotta hold the standard time. We wrote in our first book extreme ownership that it's not what you preach. It's what you tolerate so you. Can't tolerate a sub-standard performance. And you gotta make sure the standards are high. And yet, you can't use accountability as, you know, do this or you'll get fired or do this or you'll you'll be punished if that's your leading method of leadership that that's that's not going to be a fact at all what you need to do is explain to the team why they're doing what they're doing get them to believe and what they're doing. So they're actually executing it holding themselves accountable Jaakko. What was your rank when you left I retired? As a Lieutenant Commander four. I would have been one one more year. I was a Lieutenant, and I I wanted my JAMES BOND striped so badly, but got out. How 'bout you life? Same. I left left after duty after thirteen years as tech matter. The navy's great. Isn't it? The navy was absolutely great to. It's great to me and great to both of us were you ever on submarines? I was on submarines for short. Periods of time doing seal type missions training missions off of office submarines, but I was never actually stationed on any kind of summary. Longest I spent on a some rains probably a couple of weeks. I would've guessed that Rick over was long since passed when you guys got in right? Rick over was long since passed. However that name still gives it gives me chills. George because the naval academy walking into Rick overhaul where my engineering classes were you rub. The nose of Rick over. So it's his brass knows is all shiny. Your engine hearing exams, which it never did for me. So I don't hold him in very high regard. Let's go to Joe in Boston. Welcome to the show. Joseph. Go ahead. Guy, george. I'm gonna say, hi Jean. I love Gina. She's on. I'm glad Georgia. A couple of questions and a couple of chemistry shots, Johnny visually impaired. And I hear the show and I'm alone. Can you make sure your books are in audio format for the blind? 'cause I brought that up and it went have mentioned the sexy. I was brought up with yelling and screaming. And you're right. It doesn't work but kids today are not allowed to be disappointed. They have meltdowns you may want to comment on that. I I know they had a college kid a while ago that was dressed wrong, and the professor told her she had a meltdown and she demonstrated in front of her oh class. It was awful. And I wanted to mention briefly, I sent you an Email hope you'll reply the sex thing. I think it's a disgrace. I think they're going too far. I think they just don't like certain people like you said, George if people just want to cause problems on both sides. I have given up Jaakko. I'm sorry, but I have given up. I'm seventy one I I don't even vote anymore have apathy. Now, I was just so much has happened. I have to agree with George. You're a stronger man than me. But please get your books. In audio format and answer my emails. He can't I really would appreciate some assistance, and thanks George and I love her. She's wonderful. She just heard you and she smiled, but Jaakko audio books. Turn it into that. You've you've got a great audience for that. Joe? Great news for you. Yes. We have audio books on all the different books written. And not only is it just an audio book and audio book that life, and I actually read ourselves. So I think you'll appreciate that. Joe thanks for calling in as far as temper tantrums from kids of all ages. And when I say kids have all ages. I'm talking about adults as well. And what happens if you reinforce a positive after someone throws a temper tantrum, and they get what they want their their learning that behavior they're going gonna continue that behavior. So when little kids have temper tantrums, you just gotta you just gotta hold the line and and not give into him off the garden grove, California. We go first time caller is Matt Matt Europe with us. Hey, thank you for your service, guys. I heard you on Rogan podcast, and I grew up with mister monster. I'm just curious. If you any more details what happened that day in Ramadi. And this is. The people were ever caught was Mike months or wasn't it? Go ahead, Jaakko or or life. Yeah. Hey, Matt great to talk to you. As soon as I heard that the city of garden grove, I figured you must know of Mike monster. I know they they named the football stadium high school football stadium after him this year and also VFW building I believe as well. So Mike was an absolute hero and wasn't incredible guy. And and just to go back to something we were talking about a little bit earlier, you know, you can you can think of Mike as a warrior, and he absolutely was. But you gotta remember also Mike was just incredibly funny guy. He had an incredible smile. He had an incredible laugh, and he was a guy that that all of us just cherished and loved and as far as his actions on that day. It's actually there's no real mystery. There's no there's no real there's nothing too complicated. What happened was a grenade? He was in a sniper overwatch position on the roof of a building. A grenade was thrown into that position. There was three guys in direct vicinity of where Mike was and actually my cat. The best chance of being able to get away from the grenade. And instead of going away from the grenade as you know, Mike actually dove on top of that grenade to save the lives of three other teammates. And he was he was killed by that grenade. Making the ultimate sacrifice for his friends. His brothers for the teams for the navy and most important for our great country. And it's something that obviously neither one of us will ever forget. And we hope that no one in our country ever forgets the incredible sacrifices that are made by men true managed, true heroes. And I bet he did not even hesitate. He did not. In fact, a sworn statements from from the guys that were up there on the roof with him say those. Exact words, George, and they say that without any hesitation whatsoever. He moved towards the grenade. That's gonna break me up. My last memory of Mike wants who are actually he had he had gotten an ear infection. And he got pulled out of his platoon to go get treated at a the the hospital that was back on the base where chocolate I were and he and his work on the opposite side of the city, and he was sitting in the Chow hall and jock and I walked saw. And and and this was right at the end of art appointments. We'd had you know this. This point six months of almost continuous nonstop urban combat some guys retire some guys were burnt out and not Mike Mike had a big smile on his face. He was eager to get back to his platoon..
