Extreme Ownership

Extreme Ownership is the name of a book on leadership and life written by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin.

It lays out an approach to leadership based on the fact that we are all leaders, and that everything is ultimately the leader’s responsibility. The core is the four Laws of Combat:

  1. Cover and Move
  2. Simple
  3. Prioritize and Execute
  4. Decentralized Command

I have found this framework to be transformational in dealing with my OCD, and also the answer to the challenges I face as a people leader and as a father.
