“You don’t want to be surrounded by ‘yes-men.’ You want to be surrounded by people who are going to say, “Hey Boss, I have a better way.” - Jocko Willink

Everybody has goals they want to accomplish. 

But very few are making the daily steps to make it happen. Too often in life we get caught up in the winds of obligation and commitment, and we leave our bigger dreams by the wayside. To combat this tendency, we must learn the keys to productivity. 

That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by Navy SEAL Jocko Willink to discuss productivity. Jocko is the author of 3 New York Times Bestsellers, most notably Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win. Willink’s insights spread across multiple domains: from discipline to foreign policy, all the way to how to run a business. Tune in to hear his insights, so you can learn how to do the most with your given schedule.

“I wake up at 4:30. That’s a really good root of personal discipline. When you make the decision to not snuggle back with your pillow, you will feel better.” - Jocko Willink

  • Most of the door-to-door fighting has been done by Iraqi soldiers
  • ISIS has gone from 70,000 to just over 1,000
  • Personal discipline will set you free by making you feel good in the long-run. 
  • Thus, you won’t make choices that try to make you feel good in the short-term
  • Napoleon said if you execute a plan that you know is wrong, you’re culpable
  • Life is part art (the human gut instinct) and part science (the metrics)
  • Once you’re no longer afraid to die, then you will just care about the people around you
  • Contrary to popular belief, the military doesn’t stifle creativity
