How to Change the World

26 January, 2015 (22:07) | Leadership, Management | By: Administrator

Just came across Admiral William H. McRaven’s 2014 Commencement Address at the University of Texas. McRaven shared 10 ways to change the world that he learned from his Navy seal training. They are paraphrased below.

- Start each day with a task completed
- Seek help, because you can’t do it alone
- Respect everyone
- Realize that life is not fair
- Don’t be afraid to fail
- Take risks
- Don’t back down
- Step up when times are toughest
- Lift up the downtrodden. Give them hope
- Never quit

Of course the admiral provides a lot more color to the above. Check it out via the link above.

Thoughts Joe and Wanda?

Joe Kerr: Changed my view of the Navy. Can’t believe after all these years the Village People actually had it wrong.

Wanda B. Goode: Nice list and a very entertaining speech. As the admiral states, if we each could change just 10 people, the entire world could change in a few generations. Inspirational and very practical advice.
