Discipline Equals Freedom: Field Manual by Jocko Willink


I am in a competition with Jocko… though he doesn’t know it. I am on his twitter feed and he posts a pic of his watch reading 04:30. This is time to get your ass out of the rack and get to it. I’m up at 04:30 daily. Jocko inspires me to be the best leader I can be. That is why I was super psyched to get his new book Discipline Equals Freedom: Field Manual this week. Yes! And… what do I know about Jocko… he was the commander of the most highly decorated special operations unit of the war in Iraq.

In Discipline Equals Freedom, the #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of Extreme Ownership describes how he lives that mantra: the mental and physical disciplines he imposes on himself in order to achieve freedom in all aspects of life. Many books offer advice on how to overcome obstacles and reach your goals―but that advice often misses the most critical ingredient: discipline. Without discipline, there will be no real progress. Discipline Equals Freedom covers it all, including strategies and tactics for conquering weakness, procrastination, and fear, and specific physical training presented in workouts for beginner, intermediate, and advanced athletes, and even the best sleep habits and food intake recommended to optimize performance. Within these pages discover the keys to becoming stronger, smarter, faster, and healthier.

There is only one way to achieve true freedom: The Way of Discipline. Read this book and find The Way. Go! Read it!
