383: Wisdom of the Bullfrog. Lessons From SEAL Admiral and SOCOM Commander, William McRaven – Jocko Podcast

The Wisdom of the Bullfrog by Admiral William H. McRaven | Hachette Book Group

specific leadership traits required to be at the top of your game

The book is based on 18 chapters. Each chapter starts with a different saying, motto, or creed. The Bullfrog explains why it is important and offers a few real-world examples or personal anecdotes and then summarizes, at the end of each chapter, with a few simple sentences. It reminds me of some of the literature that I’ve read in the Marine Corps Basic Training and Officers Candidate School. It works.

  2. You Can’t Surge Trust.
  3. When in Command, Command.
  4. We All Have Our Frog Floats.
  5. The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday.
  6. Run to the Sound of the Guns.
  7. Sua Sponte.
  8. Who Dares Wins.

  11. It Pays to Be a Winner.
  12. A Shepherd Should Smell Like His Sheep.
  13. Troop the Line.
  14. Expect What You Inspect.
  15. Communicate, Communicate, Communicate.
