  1. I listened to your recent podcast on Joe Rogans show…since then I have started following you as well. I like the way you think. I have been going to your website to listen but I was wondering if their is a more efficient way to listen. My only issue is I can’t close my safari to do anything else without it pausing your podcast.

  2. Jocko,

    Please list three (non-military) people who you’ve learned pragmatic leadership wisdom from, and then discuss how that wisdom impacted you?

  3. Jocko,

    Thanks for this Episode. It was helpful for me this week, to stop complaining and Get After It.

    I have a question:

    I’ve found myself recently resenting those unwilling to make similar sacrifices to those I’ve made in my life.

    I’m not in a position to leave my organization at the moment, and I’m constantly in an uphill battle because I share the field with teammates who are less committed. Our Team results this year have been less than stellar and it comes from a lack of a high standard of performance across the board.

    How do you come to be comfortable with the lack of discipline and mediocrity around you?

    What advice do you have for someone who’s not at the top of the chain, and cannot institute swift monumental change on a large scale?

    I’m getting frustrated as I’m constantly growing, learning and changing (thanks for your help) and not seeing outstanding results.


  4. At about 2:00 to 2:04 you talke about stepping back and seeing life without our intervention, detached. This bit is such useful general life advice put so clearly. Thank you.

  5. “Distractions get in the way of your goals”. ECHO CHARLES!!! Ya nailed it, brother. Take it from a guy who was the Procrastination King and is trying endlessly to leave that behind. Jocko’s Field Manual has helped me immensely!!! I still have tiny battles but not like I used to. I work out, I read, I get things done. But, I still have those tiny distractions that I am continually determined to leave behind. It will happen.”
    I refer you guys to anyone and everyone. If I can stimulate those folks to get on “The Path”, it is a good thing. Discipline Equals Freedom.
