Don't get me wrong the author is an American hero and he deserves to make a buck with his advice and anecdotes all wrapped up in time for graduation gift giving I don't doubt for a second that this advice is good for anyone who anticipates a military career You should learn how to make your bed with military precision and you should appreciate teamwork get over yourself and accept that life is not fair and never give up etcetc The obvious problem with this type of one size fits all advice is that some people who shouldn't be listening to it use it to justify their behavior For example one of my pet peeves is people who are obese but have perfectly salon manicured nails The reason it bugs me is that those people spent time and money sitting in a nail salon when they should have been out exercising walking at the very least If you talk to them about it you will find they think they don't have time for exercise or money for a gym but the one area of their lives they can control is their salon perfect nails They probably made their beds too using the same logic I can't control the rest of my day but my bed is madeCan you imagine telling Jackson Pollack that things would go better for him if he just made his bed every morning or telling Leo Tolstoy to be of a team player As for never giving up the author is certain that all of the people in his training program are sorry that they gave up when they did They might be but I bet they're not as sorry as the families of those who died trying to make the program and pushed themselves beyond their tolerance I'm just saying it's a charming notion to think that focusing on the small stuff will lead to greater accomplishment But maybe we shouldn't sweat the small stuff Hey a good idea for a book
