    Great podcast. Reminds me of an Einstein quote that I love. “Genius is making complex ideas simple, not making simple ideas complex.”

        Okay, this might hurt a few of your feelings, but i'm just gonna come straight out and say i think this video is dumb.
        I still urge you to read on, because you may be able to help me learn, or vice-versa.

        They're definitely not MARKETING it, it's free on the NHS you knobs.

        This video just seems to epitomise how the extrapolated slight stupidity, is in many cases FAR WORSE (in terms of how bad your effects on yourself and others are) than being REALLY dumb. Because when you're REALLY dumb, people don't mind treating you that way eventually, because it's so long winded to not treat you that way. As a result, you're used to listening to others, and probably quickly work out, that's a better option for you due to an improvement in results... But when you're only slightly stupid, like Sargon, or this Muslim dude, and you have some lazy conclusions, you don't have a hard time, finding a bunch of other slightly stupid people, who are also looking to confirm the same bog-standard lazy conclusion, that saves them from challenging ANY judgements they've held, even if timidly and only with the burden of proof being met. And do you know the cause of this? Laziness and/or fear. (would be my best guess anyway)

        People like this have always existed and the common theme is can't be bothered to actually work out their own issues (never spending too much time on self-reflection, assessing their own shortcomings or anything like that), if it turns out they were wrong about blacks being fine as slaves (because the people keeping them didn't want to work anymore), or the gays being demon-spawn (cuz ew gays), or females not being allowed to read (cuz ew females reading), transgender being the name of some kind of perverse passtime (because ew transgenderism) - that would mean A WHOLE BUNCH of shifting character would be DEMANDED from people like Sarg and the Mus dude, which they can't stand the idea of, so instead of evolving, they lock themselves, and anyone they're responsible for, in a nice dark hole. Because they are too stupid fat and lazy, to do anything better than that. Hopefully we're all trying to be at least a little better than that.

        Thoughts anyone? Am i the idiot? I'm definitely not SURE...... But i'm almost there.... I don't have a problem if i'm wrong, it really has no effect on me personally, but feels like ur preaching to the converted for a reason. Any critiques of my logic are welcomed with open arms, i'm always trying to learn how to think better.

            This played randomly as an “up next” through the algorithm. It’s like finding Jordan Peterson, I literally can’t turn it off.

              This chapter is like flying an airplane. You have to be anticipating what the airplane is going to keep it under control not correcting after it happens.

                  I'd bet you've been called a hero enough you're probably sick of it, but would you ever consider sharing your own experiences? Knowing you and your buds can make it through that atmosphere really helps us "softies" know we have a chance of making it through as well.

                            Throw your soldiers into positions whence there is no escape, and they will prefer death to flight. If they will face death, there is nothing they may not achieve. #

                            On hemmed-in ground, I would block any way of retreat.
                            On desperate ground, I would proclaim to my soldiers the hopelessness of saving their lives. #

                            Place your army in deadly peril, and it will survive; plunge it into desperate straits, and it will come off in safety. #

                                    Another pod guest suggestion Linda Cox-first female EOD technician starting in the 1970s up to the first Gulf War and many fascinating jobs after and she is still alive:
                                    Moreover contact me via email and I can also suggest recent (female) EOD just returned from AF no longer in military but other gov . service. Maybe both at the same time?!

                                      I love these podcasts where Jocko has one person for several episodes. It really lets them dive deep into a subject.

                                                    08:23 "If you don't have humility, you won't adapt." "People who aren't humble don't change." !!!
                                                    I really do think humility is the most underrated leadership trait. Humility reminds me of the limits to my own perception — realizing others, including my 'subordinates', see things I don't. A fatal flaw of almost every historical or fictional hero is pressing forward with arrogant confidence. As I think I've heard Jocko say previously, “stay humble or get humbled.”
