In this episode of Fast Fix Friday I talk all about the power of 10X vision.
Most of us chug along trying to grow revenues, our businesses, our personal brands incrementally and sustainably over time. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this approach., I myself am a big believer in persistence trumping talent 8 days a week, and aesop’s fable, ‘the tortoise and the hare’ favours the slowly but surely approach over the quick off the mark risk laden approach.
But if you’re looking to create dramatic impact, thinking and acting incrementally might not be enough.Rather than looking for 10% growth next year, perhaps you can ask yourself how you plan on growing by 10x, that’s 1000%, next year. Or as Peter Thiel of Paypal and Palantir fame says, how can you achieve your 10 year plan in the next 6 months?
This simple question prompts us ask questions of ourselves and our businesses that we normally wouldn’t ask.
I asked myself this question just the other night and spent 2 hours on my couch, doodling and mindmapping away potential growth opportunities and came up with over 130 to begin with, which mind you could be further broken down into subideas.
So, if you want to 10x your business next year, I talk through 11 things you might want to think about in this episode of Future Squared.
