Welcome back or welcome to, the Lawyer’s Well-being Brief. Every week, I share insights on ways to improve our well-being. This week we take a look at Admiral William McRaven’s book, Make Your Bed — Little Things That Can Change Your Life…And Maybe the World.

Admiral William H. McRaven is a Retired U.S. Navy SEAL who served for thirty-seven years and commanded at every level. During his thirty-seven years of service, he experienced quite a lot, both in training and in battle. He led troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan. As a Four-Star Admiral, his final assignment was as Commander of all U.S. Special Operations Forces. During his time as Commander of all U.S. Special Operations Forces, he oversaw the covert mission that killed Osama bin Laden.

In 2014, he gave the commencement address to the graduates of the University of Texas at Austin. Millions of people wound up watching his speech on ten lessons he learned from his Navy SEAL training. If you haven’t watched the speech, you can find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yaQZFhrW0fU
