Wisdom Day 1 June 2016: About Face! v2.0

New month!

New opportunities! Hey, Jocko troopers, it’s the last month of the 2nd quarter 2016! Almost half way through the year! Hard to believe, for me at least. Let’s make it the BIG month! Let’s get some . . . WISDOM! As Jocko Podcast might advise, let’s remember Colonel Hackworth’s message and do an . . .

About face!

“Simpletons! How long will you wallow in ignorance?
    Cynics! How long will you feed your cynicism?
Idiots! How long will you refuse to learn?
    About face! I can revise your life.
Look, I’m ready to pour out my spirit on you;
    I’m ready to tell you all I know.
As it is, I’ve called, but you’ve turned a deaf ear;
    I’ve reached out to you, but you’ve ignored me. (Book of Proverbs, Chapter 1, The Message,

OK! I’m listening. The take away?

Carelessness kills; complacency is murder.

Because you wouldn’t take my advice
    and brushed aside all my offers to train you,
Well, you’ve made your bed—now lie in it;
    you wanted your own way—now, how do you like it?
Don’t you see what happens, you simpletons, you idiots?
    Carelessness kills; complacency is murder.
First pay attention to me, and then relax.
    Now you can take it easy—you’re in good hands.” (Chapter 1, Verses 29-33, Book of Proverbs, The Message,

Yes, Ma’am, Wisdom! You have my attention! Like Fort Benning Jump School cadre!

OK, maybe I did make my bed in hell. No fun. Would prefer new digs.

Will train seriously. I want to arrive at the end of June 2016 with greater wisdom.

Will revisit Extreme Ownership and keep up with The Book of  Proverbs in The Message.
