In this Monday morning podcast Marty and I talk about his first book, Violence of Action and how he wanted to create memories of events as they happened from the guys that were there. We discuss how it wasn’t his goal to tell the story but let the story be told. We dive into how story telling and sharing our experiences can add tremendous value to each other.
We have a little fun looking through history and seeing that while some things change, some things will always be the same.
- The grass IS NOT greener on the other side!
- High performers exist everywhere and DON’T FORGET IT!
- Do exceptional work – ALWAYS
- Hold Standards and be willing to do the harder thing
- Share your story, it could make a difference for someone
- You ARE NEVER less than!
- AND… P.S. The Ranger Creed could have been written better
Remember to be present with where you are, the role you have and the job you’re in. Be exceptional there and that is what will take you to where you want to be.
