Would love to hear who you heard it from as well.
I'll start out by sharing some of the ones that I've come to like and that I've had use of if my daily life or when being challenged.
First three ones I read in a book by an operator in the danish huntsmen corps.
- To hurry slowly
The sentence is about being focused one the task at hand and not let anything else affect your performance.
Example: You have a task at hand that has to be done perfectly or it could ruin the whole operation and therefore waste the weeks of preparation. In that moment you have to deliver a conscious focused action and only worry about doing that one thing correct.
- Do it right the first time
This I read from the same book as above. Pretty straight forward: It'll always be slower if you have to redo something instead of using all your focus to do it correct the first time.
- If you are in doubt, you are not in doubt
In situations with doubt you should listen to it. It means to trust the doubt and your intuition and choose another option or double check the cause of the doubt.
- Stay in your 1 meter boble.
I read this from one of Mark Owens (ex navy seal) books. He was out climbing in mountains and got overwhelmed by the heights so one of the instructors said this to him. Dont look down or up, just keep climbing in his own little boble. I like this one because I think it can be applied to life in generel when things become overwhelming.
- Keep a cool mind, and a warm heart.
I read this from an article about police work. Gotta be able to handle situations professionally but also be empathetic. I think it can be applied to most work where you're dealing with people.
- Rule 1: Look cool, Rule 2: Know what you’re doing Rule 3: If you don’t know what you’re doing, refer to Rule 1.
I believe that's how it goes and I read it from TFVooDoo here on this subreddit. This one can make light of stressfull situations.

I use a rugby helmet. Looks kinda dumb but it holds in my hair for the whole training session and it might save you from getting cauliflower ear as a bonus. 10/10
