The 10X Rule CrossFit in Memphis

I recently read a book called the 10X Rule by Grant Cordone .  This was a great book to me, and I want to spend a couple of blogs talking about some of the concepts in this book.

?Assume that every project you attempt will take more time, money, energy, effort, and people than you can imagine.  Multiply every expectation by 10, and you will probably be safe.  And if doesn?t take 10 times more than anticipated, great.  It is better to be pleasantly surprised than greatly disappointed.?

One of the major points of this book is that the difference between success and failure many times is the lack of effort.  If you assume that everything you want to accomplish will take 10 times the effort then you won’t be surprised when it does.  This holds true in life in general but it definitely holds true for training.  I think many times, people join the program and think that if I just show up every once in awhile and half way work on my nutrition, or show up more and not work on my nutrition at all, I’ll get results.  That simply isn’t the case.  It’s not the case with any program.  It takes a lot of effort to get the results that you say you want.  If you set those expectations high on the front end and then put in 10 times the effort, you will get the results you desire. 

Have you observed this to be true in your life?
