Navy SEALS and Software Projects

I woke up to Inc's tweet - titled "Navy SEALs use this 7-step process to achieve any goal. You can too."

Anything related to the military excites me like a kid gets excited with the latest gadgets.
I nodded multiple times as I read the above article and it struck me that the same principles apply well with software/any project too.

1. Ask clarifying questions
2. Identify all your resources
3. Clarify roles and responsibilities
4. Focus relentlessly on your goal
5. Think through all possible contingencies
6. Train until you're stress-proof
7. After-action review
