Throughout my career I have often wondered “what is the formula for success?” Typically landing on “hard work and self-discipline” as the default answer but this has always felt somewhat shallow. And while it is a true statement, It does not provide any of the details needed to really get somewhere. For example, you can “work really hard” but in the absence of a plan you will find yourself working in circles.
Captain Jim Moss, starting with Firefighter Functional Fitness (discussed in episode 34) and now Firefighter Success, shares the formula, the tools needed and the plan to execute. Jim nicely articulates 20 core principles that will give your “hard work and self-discipline” some direction and focus. In episode 61 we unpack many aspects of Moss’ personal philosophies and much more. Enjoy the episode!
