The 10X Rule

“We have all heard the fable of the tortoise and the hare. The implied lesson, of course, is that the tortoise wins because he plods along and takes his time, whereas the hare rushes, becomes tired, and misses his opportunity to win. We’re supposed to derive the meaning that we should be tortoises—individuals who approach our goals steadily and slowly. If there was a third player in the fable who had the speed of the hare and the steadfastness of the tortoise, it would smoke them both and have no competition. The fable would then be called Smoked. The suggestion here is to approach your goals like the tortoise and the hare—by attacking them ruthlessly from the beginning and also staying with them throughout the course of the ‘race.’”
—Grant Cardone from The 10X Rule
I love that.
We have the Tortoise. And the Hare. And, how about we call the little creature that has the speed of the hare and steadfastness of the tortoise Smokey in honor of the fact he’d smoke them both?
Yep. I like that.
Here’s to riding Smokey all the way to the finish line as we say YES to speed AND to persistence.

P.S. Best way to do that? Mastery of the fundamentals. Focus first on creating a sustainable ENGINE of energy by prioritizing exercise, nutrition and rest. Smokey approved! 🙂
