Even if it's been 19 years i left, i'm still doing my bed every morning and still in the military style. My ex-wife never did it cause if so i would pass after her and doing it the right way :)

The Marine Corps works the same way, but everything happens in a matter of seconds and the emphasis is to reinforce muscle memory.

Admiral William McRaven makes a fine point that I've heard reiterated for people that get bogged down with life, depression, or other obstacles they face in life.

One small accomplishment can be such a big milestone and catalyst for change.

Years ago I was dealing with a mild case of depression, brought on by unemployment and other stuff. I read an article that spoke of doing one single task a day perfectly. In the article they talked about cleaning the kitchen sink. Ours was stainless steel so baking soda and all that stuff was needed. Not even water marks anywhere.

I cleaned that sink three times a day...........day after day

Without realizing it, the depression was lifting, I was becoming more focused, do other things around the house. Before I knew it. I had a new career, and life was definitely looking up.

Never cleaned that damn sink again lol............................

I wish every single person could and would understand just how important this is.
