[Weekly Inspiration] If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed

Looking for a way to get motivated to reach the goals you set for yourself and aim higher than you ever have before? Who better than to pump you up than William McRaven, US Navy Admiral. He shares his key insights into how he motivates his crew of Navy Seals through training each year in this inspiring speech.

“If you wanna change the world, start off by making your bed. If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride and encourage you to do another task.” McRaven remarked. Often, when we make goals for ourselves, we often aim for large ones. However, how can we be expected to accomplish big goals when we can’t accomplish the small tasks needed to get there. Working toward a big goal is like running a marathon, not sprinting. It takes time, energy, and sustained motivation to get you there.
