Jocko Willink Interview (Full Episode) | The Tim Ferriss Present (Podcast)



Jocko enlisted in the Navy after high school and spent 20 years in the SEAL Teams, first as an enlisted SEAL operator and then as a SEAL officer. During his second tour in Iraq, he led SEAL Task Unit Bruiser in the Battle of Ramadi — some of the toughest and most sustained combat by the SEAL Teams since Vietnam.

Under his leadership, Task Unit Bruiser became the most highly decorated Special Operations Unit of the entire war in Iraq and helped bring stability to Ramadi. Jocko was awarded the Bronze Star and a Silver Star.

Upon returning to the United States, Jocko served as the Officer-in-Charge of training for all West Coast SEAL Teams, designing and implementing some of the most challenging and realistic combat training in the world.

  1. Detachment makes sense. I was an amateur pro motocross racer. I'm a better teacher than I ever was a racer. Racing is so fast that it's extremely hard for most people to slow things down and hit the "zone" where everything slows down a bit and things start to click. A lot of guys that can do it don't know how to use it. They get a push from a retired pro and start winning. It happens all the time. Happened with Adam cincerillo being coached by Nick Wey. He has all the skill just needed some outside perspective and he won his first championship a few days ago.

  2. When TF brings up the darkness of human behavior and his desire to protect himself from it I completely agree.

    I got into watching road rage videos and other stuff with people hurting each other and screaming and yelling at each other and I found it to have an emotionally corrosive effect upon my soul. I stopped watching those videos and I feel better.

    We are an animal species. Our bodies are the same as when we were cave people and respond to the video as though it is happening right where we are. This releases cortisol into your system for no valid reason. You have nothing to defend yourself against so the cortisol hurts you instead of helping.

    Then again when JW talks about how they desensitize the SEALS in training I wonder if they use videos etc. as training aids.

  3. Mister Jocko, as an ex-Muslim from a Muslim country I understand your sincerity and heroism. But you Sir have been used as a pawn in a war that had little to do with democracy and justice. You are a good man with a great sense of justice, but your patriotism has been used for other reasons than justice. I find it sad that you are using this typical American dialectical view of "Us, The good guys" Vs. "Them, the bad guys" which can't be further than the truth. It was a war, ISIS was not the only insurgence, there were other Iraqis as patriotic as you sound who saw you as the invader who needed to be chased out of their home.
