I would rate the book at 5/10★ mainly since I didn’t learn anything new. But it could be a fun read to kill time during travel.
10 X Target
Setting “10X” Targets
In order to success, we need to set targets, works hard systematically and doggedly, use time effectively and network. When you consider your life, you may see that you succeeded in the past when you put in 10 times more effort than most other people.
Those who’ve achieved enormous success in the arts, philanthropy, politics, athletics or entertainment all followed the 10X rule. By working hard, putting in the more hours, is the said to be sure way to success, although most surely we need a tremendous amount of luck.
Develop the capacity to foresee how much work you and your colleagues must sustain to achieve your targets. Then, set goals 10 times higher than that and undertake 10 times the effort that initially seems necessary. That’s what it takes to follow the 10X rule.
Four Typical Mistakes
People tend to make four types of mistakes when they begin applying the 10X rule:
- “Mistargeting” – They set limited goals whose targets don’t galvanize them.
- “Severely underestimating” – They don’t realistically assess what it will take in effort, capital and gumption to achieve their objectives.
- “Spending too much time competing” – They let their competitors dictate their pace of work and their goals.
- “Underestimating the amount of adversity” – They don’t correctly envision the challenges they face.
According to Grant Cordone,
“The 10X Rule is the one thing that will guarantee that you will get what you want in amounts greater than you ever thought imaginable.”
