Make Your Bed - Bird Rock Surf Report

Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life ... and Maybe the World

Make Your Bed was written by former Navy SEAL, William McRaven and inspires its readers with ten lessons he learned while training that can be translated in helping with the matters of our daily lives. 

Whether you are social distancing from home or just need to start building better habits, how do you start? Well ... make your bed! A Navy SEAL needs to follow basic requirements, such as making your bed, in order to best perform and avoid facing any repercussions during training. The act of making your bed and starting the day with an accomplishment as small as this one can provide enough strength and encouragement to continue making better habits. 

The ten lessons outlined in his book is as follows:

      1. Start your day with a task completed
      2. You can’t go at it alone
      3. Only the size of your heart matters
      4. Life’s not fair—drive on!
      5. Failure can make you stronger
      6. You must dare greatly
      7. Stand up to the bullies
      8. Rise to the occasion
      9. Give people hope
      10. Never, ever quit!

Read more to find out what these lessons entail. Watch Admiral William H. McRaven's commencement speech that inspired the book.

Tech Highlight

Team As A Service 

Despite budget constraints, skill gaps, and the necessary time to hire a qualified team, your organization still expects you to execute key initiatives in addition to maintaining everyday operations.  

Bird Rock Systems specializes in building high performance teams and then applying agile methodologies, such as SCRUM, in order to ensure that projects are done the right way. We assemble a crew with varied skill sets and scale up or down according to your needs. This prevents time loss that inevitably surrounds the hiring, onboarding and offboarding processes.
