Poetry Wisdom

Distance Owned

I love the poem If by Rudyard Kipling. Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin and The Obstacle is the Way by Ryan Holiday put the poem in a new light for me.

Distance Owned
If you fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds of distance you own,
Then, my child, your now is yours and all that’s in it.
You’ll posses the way to life’s richest throne.
