Serious question: Do you believe you can achieve outcomes that are 10 times better than what you’re getting now?
Most people dismiss the idea. Outright. They think it’s a ridiculous notion. The average person simply can’t wrap their head around the concept. They look at life and think, “C’mon, I can’t work 10x harder. There’s no way I can perform 10 times more powerfully.”
And right there—in that moment—they doom their chances. That lack of faith in the possibility of a 10x improvement becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Because of their disbelief, they never even try. Their own doubt denies them what absolutely could be theirs. They forfeit the 10x game without ever suiting up to play.
What if…? Stay with me for a minute!
What if I show you a concrete, totally realistic way to achieve your own 10x outcome?
Because I can. I will provide practical, down-to-earth proof that 10x is within your reach. As a matter of fact, I’ll go one better—I’ll show you how to go 16x.
I won’t throw around esoteric platitudes. I won’t take you into dream land. I’ll simply go mathematical.
You’ve heard about the “80-20 Rule.” It’s the well-known principle that captures the lopsidedness which so often occurs between cause and effect. For example, 80% of results flow from 20% of effort… 80% of the outputs are driven by 20% of inputs… 80% of consequences are the outcome of a mere 20% of the causes. The rule highlights how a small amount of your time, energy, and effort is amazingly more productive than most of it.
So, quit doing the 80% of stuff that gives you the poor payoff. Then reinvest that time and effort in the 20% that’s giving you the best returns. Simple enough. Obviously, you’ll get a far better return on investment (ROI).
But here’s the stunning reality: Your ROI will be 16x better!
When I mentioned that you can 10x your results, I was being rather conservative. I’ll say it again. The best bits of your time, energy, or effort can produce 16 times better results than most of your efforts. This sounds crazy, but it’s true.
I published a handbook with Richard Koch that explains this bizarre phenomenon in detail. It’s titled 16x: Real Simple Innovation for 16 Times Better Results. The math is rock solid. You might want to buy this little 45-page handbook and get the story.
But here’s the point. If you want a breakthrough—a quantum leap in results—you need to 80-20 your life.
