Last year, Naval Adm. William H. McRaven — the man who commanded the SEAL team that hunted for Osama bin Laden — gave University of Texas graduates some unusual advice during his commencement speech: If you want to change the world, start by making your bed.
He acknowledges that this statement may seem “a little ridiculous,” but says, “the wisdom of this simple act has been proven to [him] many times over.” Indeed, while making the bed may take just a minute or two each morning, the payoff is long-lasting and surprisingly far-reaching.
Question: Do you make your bed every morning? Do you have a specific way you like to make your bed? Do you think that making your bed has an effect on the rest of your day and your productivity?
