Favorite Quotes: (1) "I don't believe in résumés in the traditional sense, I believe in life résumés. Do more. Create memories. Only when looking back on my successes and failures am I able to connect the dots." (2) "'When you think you're done, you're only at forty percent of what your body is capable of doing. That's just the limit that we put on ourselves.'" (3) "One thousand push-ups! In one day...I take a seat on my couch by the steam room and smile. For the first time during this whole process, I'm truly proud of myself. Not because I did a thousand but because I stuck with the journey. I think back to the first day SEAL was here and the first set of push-ups we did. This proves to me that if you push the body, the body will respond."

Why I Chose It: Someone recommended this to me. I can't remember who now. If it was you, comment and I'll edit this part.

Other Notes: I don't know quite how I feel about the ~200 page motivational / business / change your life / Jon Acuff genre of books. This one was inspiring and fairly funny / enjoyable. Since the author was being trained by a Navy Seal, there's obviously quite a bit of language. It was a nice diversion from other books I've read recently.
