Sometimes you need to step back from the situation to see things clearly.

Picture the scene. A team of Navy SEALs is on a training mission. They’re tasked with storming an offshore oil rig. But things aren’t going to plan.

As they approach the rig, the team finds themselves frozen in position, guns out, waiting for someone to make a call on how best to move forward. The problem is, no call is coming. There are too many places for possible enemies to hide on this rig and too few places for the SEAL team to find protective cover.

Time is ticking away, and all anyone can do is what they’re trained to do in this situation – scan for targets. But when you scan for targets, all you see is what’s in the sights of your gun. You miss out on the big picture. In order to move forward, someone from the team needs to detach.

The key message here is: Sometimes you need to step back from the situation to see things clearly.

Luckily for this SEAL team, they had someone who could step up and take charge: the author, Jocko Willink. He knew exactly what to do.

To get a grip on the situation, Willink stepped back, pointed his weapon up to “high-port” position, and had a good look at their surroundings. This move allowed him to see the full picture. He could see the obstacles that lay ahead and the path which the team should take. He could then take the initiative and give the order, “Hold left! Move right!”

Outside of his life as a Navy SEAL, the author has found that detaching from a situation is one of a leader’s best tools. Whenever you feel like you’re becoming overwhelmed by all there is to do, take a step back. You can even do this literally – take a step back from your desk or a conversation and take a deep breath. Lift your head up, look in both directions, allow yourself to let go of whatever emotions are going on and try to see and hear what’s really going on around you. This will help you to become grounded with the present moment and will put you in a better place to make a more rational decision – one that is less influenced by highly charged emotions.

Later on in his military career, the author learned plenty of other lessons that can be applied to leadership roles outside of the armed forces. And in the blinks ahead, we’ll look at more of these valuable tactics and strategies.
