Let me first say thank you for reading this. This will be a weekly newsletter, hope you enjoy it. Now I will see you every Sunday at 9:00 AM (IST).

The 10X Rule Summary

I won’t lie, the book is very long. Looks like Grant Cardone author of the 10X book took the rule very seriously because if something can be explained in 5 words then he will explain it in 50 words.

Sometimes, it feels boring to read the same thing again and again. I feel the book should have 50 pages max. By the way, the book has a whopping 240 pages.

That being said, let me share with you some of the key takeaways. So you can decide whether this is worth reading or not.

Massive Goals

For example,

I wanted to make a website about a book and I said to myself that I would write 2 articles a week which would be 96 articles in a year.

Now, as per Grant Cardone, you should write new articles every day which would be 365 articles per year.

Take the article example in your business, study, or whatever you’re doing it right now. Multiply everything by 10X.

Now the biggest question is what will happen when I apply the 10X rule?

You will complete your goals in less time, the only thing you will have to do is, spend more time. For example, if you plan to work 2 hours a day then you will have to work more than 8 hours a day.

The author has also shared other rules as well which people use in their day-to-day lives:

  • Do Nothing: “Doing nothing” is exactly what it sounds like. No longer taking actions to move forward in order to learn, achieve, or control some area.
  • Retreat Take: “Retreaters” are those who take actions in reverse—probably in order to avoid negative experiences that they imagine will come as a result of taking action.
  • Normal Levels of Action: People who take normal levels of action are probably the most prevalent in our society today. This is the group that appears on the surface to be taking the necessary amounts of action and to be “normal.”
  • Take Massive Action: The one we talk about is multiplying everything by 10x if you want to achieve your goals quickly.

This sounds great but keep in mind, you have to take care of your health as well. Doing hard work is great but if you’re working without any sort of plan then you will stay where you’re right now.

So make a plan and then work on it.

It doesn’t matter whether you work 10 hours a day or 5 hours a day, what matters is, that you’re working in the right direction with a proper plan.

Without a plan, you’re not any different than an animal. Make Plans, have a to-do list, and finish those that are important.

10X Action Rule

When you apply the 10X action rule, you will never be disappointed because you have already seen every single possibility of failure or success.

Let’s say, you’re working on a project and the project will take 2 days to complete.

Now, you said to yourself that you can finish this project in half a day, you started working in the morning to afternoon but somehow, you didn’t finish the project.

What happened is you had 2 days to finish the project, and the project was nearly completed in half a day. So if you can push yourself to two more hours then the project will be finished.

The end result is, you saved 1 day by telling yourself that you can finish in less time.

Now, you didn’t finish the project by afternoon but because of that, you finished in the day.

So always, keep the error of margin.

It’s like when your mom tells you to clean your room by evening. And the fact is, to clean the room, you will only need a few hours, and yet you delay the task because you know you have time till evening.

In the same way, if the task you’re going through can be finished before the deadline then don’t procrastinate and just finish the work.

Luck is Not Real

Let’s say you started working on a new business back in 2016, but no one knew about your business. Fast forward to 2022, you started earning 10 lakh a month.

Now, people will know about your business because you’re making a lot of money, some even will say, they got lucky because they started in 2016, and it’s really hard to start a business in 2022.

So you tell me, was that luck or your hard work?

Luck is a myth, everything you do in your life is because of the actions you take.

If you exercise every day then you will have good physics but if you’re lying in your bed then you will only get a big fat tummy.

So take steps, it doesn’t matter whether you take big ones or small ones. What matters is, that you’re moving forward and not stuck in one place.

Excuse Is Word

I’m that person who used to give excuses for many things whether it’s reading books, doing exercise, writing articles, making videos or eating healthy food.

The meaning of excuses changed when I read the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

So do yourself a favor and remove the Excuse and just work on whatever is needed. You don’t have to delay the task because you feel you don’t have time or mood.

Everyone on earth has 24 hours, don’t say that I don’t have time to read books to do exercise because the truth is, you have time.

Don’t use the Excuse word too often and just go to work.

The 10X Rule Lessons

  1. No matter what you’re doing, time is running out. So get the most out of whatever time you have and live your life as you want to live.
  2. Excuse word can destroy your dreams. So get to work because you can.
  3. Procrastination is a waste of time, don’t delay the tasks because you’re afraid of the future. Start working on that task and if you’re finding it hard then go find a solution.
  4. Working 10 hours a day without a plan is a waste. So make a plan, have a to-do list and finish those task first which will play a huge role in your dream.
  5. Don’t ever rely on luck, if you want something then go get it. Luck is a myth.

The 10X Rule Quotes

“As long as you are alive, you will either live to accomplish your own goals and dreams or be used as a resource to accomplish someone else’s.”

“You know, you don’t need to grow old to die. I was dying at the age of 20 as a result of no direction and no purpose.”

“it is better to make something happen—good or bad—than to have it happen to you.”

“Anyone who minimizes the importance of success to your future has given up on his or her own chances of accomplishment and is spending his or her life trying to convince others to do the same.”

“in order to get to the next level of whatever you’re doing, you must think and act in a wildly different way than you previously have been. You cannot get to the next phase of a project without a grander mindset, more acceleration, and extra horsepower.”

“There are certain things in life that have limits, but you don’t unless you impose limits on yourself.”

“Success is not something that happens to you; it’s something that happens because of you and because of the actions you take. People who refuse to take responsibility generally”

The 10X Rule Review

The 10X Rule is an inspiring book at the same time, it’s too long too. I wish it only had 50 pages with proper structure, so readers like me don’t fall asleep.

Nonetheless, it’s a good read to learn that, life is not hard, we humans make it hard, you can archive whatever you want, and you just have to do it now.

Do I recommend this book, the answer is no. Rather just read the Productive Awareness or Eat that Frog which are under 100 pages and yet it give everything that you need to know about how to manage time.
