Description

Making your bed is a simple act with powerful consequences. To rise in the morning and complete the first task of the day will give you motivation to do more; to accomplish more. The bed also represents you. Few things in your home are more personal. Making your bed is a reflection of your discipline, your pride and your personal habits. If you can't get up in the morning and make your bed, what else are you incapable of doing? If you want to change the world, or just make yourself a little better, start off by making your bed. MAKE YOUR BED is a attractively packaged gift book, perfect for Commencement, Father's Day and the business and military audience, based on a speech the Admiral gave at University of Texas graduation, which went viral to the tune of almost 25 million views. The speech itself focuses on the ten lessons Admiral McRaven learned from Navy Seal training that will help readers face and overcome challenges in their lives and ultimately change the world. Lessons include "find someone to help you paddle," "don't back down from sharks," "start singing when you're up to your neck in muck," and of course, "make your bed."
Building from McRaven's powerful speech, this book will inspire readers to achieve more with thoughtful determination, hard work and the spirit of service.

Review quote

"McRaven...has taken the genesis of what he learned during SEAL training and his nearly four decades in Navy Special Operations into a thin, powerful book."--USA Today "Full of captivating personal anecdotes from inside the national security vault...McRaven's lessons, like his commencement speech, extend far beyond his bed-making. He devotes the 10-chapter book to lessons about moving beyond failure, standing up to bullies and giving others hope."--Washington Post "Exquisitely simple...superb, smart, and succinct ideas."--Forbes "Should be read by every leader in America... [MAKE YOUR BED] is a book to inspire your children and grandchildren to become everything that they can. It is a book to discuss with your executive leadership team as a spur to meeting shared goals. Most of all, it is a book that will leave you with tears in your eyes."--Wall Street Journal
