In the quest for excellence, the US Armed Forces have successfully refined a series of principles that have often made the difference between life and death. It's not so hard to imagine that by applying them to someone's life, they can make the difference between success and failure. Operation Excellence shows readers how to harness the same strategies used to great effect by the Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marines in their own personal and professional lives. Using action-packed examples to deliver the message behind each lesson, the book reveals how a combination of discipline, confidence, and sacrifice can help anyone achieve superior results in: Leadership; Teamwork; Tactics; Health; Wealth; Relationships; and much more. This exciting, highly motivational book takes readers inside the world of the U.S. military, and presents them with 50 practical, proven strategies for taking control of their work, their health, and their lives.
