Jocko Willink on Ego and Leadership | The Portal Clips
“This other guy who’s taking care of himself, he might actually get a promotion ahead of you. He might move ahead of you this time. He might even move ahead of you next time. But guess what? Eventually, people are going to look at that guy. They’re going to characterize him for what he is, which is someone that’s taken care of himself, doesn’t care about anyone else, and that is going to undermine his future.” – Jocko Willink

–QUOTES FROM THIS VIDEO:
“You need to have an ego, but at the same time, you have to be humble enough to listen to other people and you can’t let your ego get out of control.”
“So that the idea being, that you have a civilian set of instructions in your brain and you have to more or less blow it away to accept all of these differences. That there really is a chain of command and it’s not flexible in the way that your regular life might be flexible or that you think that you can’t do something that is within your physical capacity to do, but it requires a lot of effort for you to get to that level.”
