At my most recent bootcamp event I talked about how progress often comes in quantum leaps not small increments.
You want to go from 0 to 1,000 to 10,000 to 25,000.
Not 0 to 500 to 1000 to 2000.
And we looked at the type of questions I ask myself to get these kind of improvements.
See, if you're just trying to add another thousand it's a whole different mindset to trying to 10x what you've got.
Adding a thousand is small enough you can picture yourself doing it the same way you got what you already have. And you just end up running on the hamster wheel faster and faster and wonder why you're not getting anywhere.
But ask yourself how you can 10x things and your mind shifts into another gear.
You quickly realise you can't do ten times more work.
You can't scale what got you here ten times and do it effectively.
You can't keep doing what you've been doing and expect a different result.
If you're still working on a plan you created 3 months ago that's only ever going to give you incremental improvements then perhaps it's time to scrap it and start fresh.
