7 Lessons From Navy Seals

I just read a post that I liked called  7 Lessons Entrepreneurs Should Learn From The Navy Seals. The author highlights seven lessons from Navy Seals that apply to entrepreneurs:

  1. Take Decisive Action
  2. Fear Nothing
  3. Seek Excellence, not Fame
  4. Lock and Load
  5. Leave no Man Behind
  6. Plan Your Mission, but Prepare to Pivot
  7. Make Peace with Constant Chaos

My take: Almost any organization would improve dramatically if it could capitalized on its resources nearly as effectively as Navy Seals. These lessons are about making plans, taking action, staying flexible, and cherishing teamwork — good stuff!

The bottom line: We should all be a bit more like Navy Seals
