It’s good to consume podcasts or videos that educate you, but don’t spend all your time-consuming information. Make time to produce your own podcast, videos, etc.
You have to make sure it’s not a deficit where all you’re doing is consuming and you’re not producing anything
You don’t have to stay the same person your entire life: As a kid, Jocko was super rebellious and didn’t care much for school or learning. Now, he’s incredibly disciplined and spends a lot of his time reading and writing books.
Do things that will benefit and improve your life in the long run. The short-term gratification is not a long-term success and it’s not long-term happiness.
Take ownership of your life: But how do you take ownership when something horrible happens to someone else, like your child getting cancer? Take ownership of how you respond to it.
Just because you’ve adapted and moved on with your life, it doesn’t mean their loss didn’t matter or you forgot about them. It means you accepted the reality that they are no longer alive and they can continue to live in your memory
Don’t use age as an exercise not to learn or try something new: Jocko started a podcast in his 40s, he got into archery recently.
As a leadership consultant, Jocko doesn’t just walk into a new business and tell them how they can run it better. He spends time asking questions and learning about their different problems. Only then does he give advice.
If you want to become a better leader, be more humble. If you’re humble, you’ll listen to other people and take responsibility for things that went wrong instead of blaming other people.
If I recognize that someone has no humility and is not going to listen, I’ll probably fire them pretty quickly

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
