They wrote a great book about how to lead called Extreme Ownership.
The #1 rule? Quit making excuses.
Instead, take EXTREME Ownership of EVERYTHING in your life.
Emphasis on EXTREME and EVERYTHING.
What would that look like? Well, in essence, with that level of ownership, you’d never (but only never!!!) make an excuse or blame anyone. About anything. Ever.
Not at work. Not at home. Not on the road between home and work.
You’d resolve to choose the most optimal response to any given situation, learning from whatever setbacks arise as you immediately focus on the next best step.
Period. Repeat. Forever.
At work. At home. On the road between home and work.
