I read the Wall Street Journal review of a new book — Make Your Bed by Admiral William H. McRaven. Then I saw Admiral McRaven interviewed on television about his new book. The t.v. interview prompted me to see what Amazon had to say. 94% of readers give his book 5 stars. That’s pretttttty impressive. And the book is now a best seller. I figured if the book is so good, I gotta have one. And maybe a few more to pass around. So I ordered three copies. And read one. Gave away two. Today, I just ordered four more copies.
In 125 pages, Admiral McRaven shares with readers the “little things that can change your life . . . . and maybe the world.”
Admiral McRaven’s book is based upon a commencement address he delivered to the University of Texas in 2014. If you want to watch a 19 minute call to action – check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxBQLFLei70
I don’t need to distill Admiral McRaven’s offering for you since if you get this book – you will be able to read it in two or three hours. At least you can get an idea if you link to the video. Is it worth it? Yes. Is it inspiring? Yes. Will it help you to change the world? I believe it could. But the “change” part is really up to you. . . .
