extreme ownership

We are three weeks away from the start of the Fall Semester at UNCG.  As I start to put together the curriculum for the semester, we always start off with a video and activity on personal responsibility.  It’s interesting to hear conversations in meetings about students today, how they don’t take 100% personal responsibility; what’s ironic is that many of the same people complaining about the students are the offenders as well – not willing to take 100% personal responsibility themselves.

Do you take 100% responsibility for your life?  Take this quiz – personal responsibility quiz, 7-25-18 – to see how much personal responsibility you’re taking in your life.

Then, if you have about 15 minutes, check out this TED Talk, addressing personal responsibility:

“Extreme Ownership” (Jocko Willink) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljqra3BcqWM

After watching the video, ask yourself, “Am I taking 100% personal responsibility for my life?” and “If not, what’s one thing I could do to move towards taking 100% personal responsibility for my life?”
