The military is a unique institution that teaches discipline, teamwork, and decision making, as well as other skills that can be applied to civilian life. When leaving the military, it can be difficult to adjust to civilian life. Despite these difficulties, military service members can successfully transition into the civilian world by having the right tools and a positive mindset.
In today’s episode of the Expert(ish) podcast, our guest, Greg Amorelli talks about the lessons he learned in the military and how he applied them to the civilian world, why it's better to make a bad decision than not to make one at all, and how growth comes from expanding past your comfort zone.
