Jocko Podcast 130: Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus, 'On Roman Military Affairs'

Discussion in 'Self Improvement' started by Deleted Account, Jul 16, 2018.

  1. Good morning to you all,

    Been taking some hits from life and PMO recently, so my reading of Seneca has dropped off somewhat; getting back on track, I decided to listen to one of John Willink's podcasts based on the writings of Flavius Vegetius Renatus. I made note of all the key takeaways from it. There is a lot more wisdom in there than I have taken down here, but the notes below I believe are most relevant, at the very least to me. Enjoy.

    • Victory depends on skill and discipline
    • Hold a proud, erect posture
    • Happiness and security come from discipline
    • Carry your burdens; they make you stronger
    • Discipline slips by degrees; always be vigilant
    • "Draw the chief advantages from your circumstances"
    • Constant, consistent training and preparation will win the day
    • Go out there, and get after it
