MBA1388 Must Read: Discipline Equals Freedom by Jocko Willink

Discipline isn’t scary.

That’s a core belief of former Navy SEAL Jocko Willink, and the central message of his latest book, Discipline Equals Freedom. Willink has experienced the toughest kind of discipline, but it didn’t just help him succeed in the military. It showed him how to enjoy his life more.

That’s right: discipline doesn’t make your life harder. In the end, it makes things easier.

For entrepreneurs, this lesson is invaluable. The same discipline necessary to be productive and move your business forward also protects your social and family life. Discipline isn’t about punishment. It’s an investment — and the returns are incredible.

Tune in, and learn how you can see discipline as something liberating, not suffocating. Hear why our (very disciplined) host Omar loves this book, and why it’s better as a hardcover than an audiobook or e-book. 

Get comfortable with discipline, and see how your life and business can improve. Click Play!
