US Navy SEAL Jocko Willink: Discipline is a Pathway to Creativity

“Discipline is a pathway to creativity. When you’re on the battlefield, it’s an exercise in creativity.”

Creativity doesn’t just mean being an artist or a writer.

It means thinking with an open, not closed, mind–pushing yourself beyond the borders of your current limiting thoughts.

It means asking yourself open-ended questions that begin with who, what, where, when, why, and how.

Such as:





  • Who can I ask to help me?
  • Where can I go?
  • When can I reach my goal?
  • What steps do I need to take?
  • How can I help and support myself in reaching it?
  • What is my why for doing this? Why do I want the goal?
  • And so on.
