One of my least favorite qualities in a person is when they tell me they are going to do something and fail to follow through. Someone who's not consistent in their stated goals is hard to trust, work with and maintain relationships with. Over the past year there's something that I've been talking a lot about but failed to do. So this week I'm going to do it....

I think I've finally figured out why most candidates wash out of schools like Coast Guard Helicopter Rescue Swimmer School, BUDS and PJ selection. It's because most aren't independent thinkers. Most people look for someone else or an authority figure to tell them what to do. If that sounds like you. You're going to have to change.
