Winning in war, basketball and life

The Navy SEALs have many maxims, and when it comes to running a good mission they remind each other “Slow is smooth, smooth is fast.”

This is like John Wooden’s maxim, “If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it again.”

There are a lot of differences between the Navy SEALs and John Wooden. However, with one being the greatest fighting force the world has known and the other the greatest college basketball coach, they are both unequivocally elite.

The world has only gotten faster since John Wooden’s time, which only makes his point more important. If it’s important, do it right, do it once, and win the war.
