Personal Benefits of X10 Thinking

Jack Welch of GE and Larry Page of Google are both business leaders who use and promote x10 Thinking. Here’s a quote from an article in the Australian Financial Review:

Google’s leaders often have to wrest employees away from seeking a 10 per cent improvement and towards finding one that is “10X” (that is, ten times better) – something that requires them to do things in an entirely new way, not just optimise what already exists. Most 10X attempts will fail, but that is accepted.

In business and in other commercial enterprises there are many rewards and benefits for x10 Thinkers because when you become skilled at x10 Thinking you can make even faster and better decisions regarding your wealth, health, business and personal security.

Thought Leadership

It is well-established in cognitive science that humans default with a negative bias in their thinking. Therefore, the ability to alter one’s thinking and cognitive responses in order to produce better outcomes is one of the most important and distinctive traits of thought-leaders.

One could go so far as to say it is THE single most important moment-by-moment human trait. Why? Because, if your self-regulation is powerful enough, then regardless of your inclinations, past experiences, or deficits in life, you can always do the adaptive or better thing.

Self-regulation can be your trump card. For example, as a thought-leader, you can:

Unedited Sample

this stuff is worth more than all the traditional education stuff combined

To focus on the process instead of just the result. I’ve previously taken a variety of work related courses on this subject, however none have matched the presentations given at SOT.

Mind-blowing and life changing. Having a daily lesson gives me a few minutes away from patterned behaviors to stop and think.  SDNT CVSTOBVS QRH PRR. Each part of the code opens a new world of possibilities. These lessons learnt will be useful for the rest of my life.

cvs2bvs. simple effective pure genie in the bottle stuff

Yes. I can DO a ‘switch’! This is a large shift from the idea that creativity is a magical and mysterious process that awaits inspiration.

what a relief to be free!!  if i cannot step aside from my cvs then I’m unable to think effectively on any issue. i am just churning out familiar ideas and beliefs.

SOT has taught me to think outside the square.  A remarkable achievement.

I love the thought that cvs2bvs is universal so that I can apply it to any situation. There is always a better way to see a situation and the universal switch simply has to be used.

Again I’d like to thank Michael for his tireless contribution to this worthwhile cause and encourage him to continue despite the inevitable weight of the challenges involved.

i was humbled and exhilarated at the same time! curious sensations.

With the repetition of cvs2bvs I have come to realize that with any situation there’s potential “always” for a BVS.

The main insight for me is the Escape. Escaping from my current point of view, rather than indignantly defending it. A realization that something else might just be better rather than taking it personally that someone else may not agree with my current point of view.

I feel my confidence building day by day. Looking forward to the next set of lessons.

There have been many benefits in using CVS to BVS. The most significant has been the realization that I have more time than I realize to make a decision.

The main insight I’ve noticed is how little time I spend in defending a CVS, rather time is invested in thinking and continuing searching for Ever Better ideas and actions to produce ever better results.

I really like the idea of cvstobvs as a switch because it denotes, to me, ease of action. Its as simple as shifting ones thinking, changing the perspective and pow! You find yourself going from cvs to bvs. The concept of a switch that takes you to infinite universes of thinking is game-changing and has had a very powerful impact upon me.

The SDNT CVSTOBVS QRH PRR sequence, it’s a wonderful compact philosophy that I‘m using 24/7! That’s the key for innovation and productivity.

NO matter what the situation there IS a better view of the situation. Imagine if you lived your whole life stuck inside a disempowering view of the current view of the situation and the day before you died you found you could create a better view of the situation and you could have created a fulfilling satisfying and peaceful life. Well “I’VE GOT THE POWER”. Thank you Michael.

dude! this place is so awesome! they describe thinking process in such fine fashion. learning from the quotes of all great people plus the cvs2bvs. dude u must check it out. it will widen your thinking outside the box.


Just how awesome is your own personal necktop computer, your noggin?
Pretty damn complex, according to researchers at Stanford. Their new imaging technique discovered that synapses are actually more like individual microprocessors than simple on/off switches, and your brain has hundreds of trillions of them.
According to Stephen Smith, a professor of molecular and cellular physiology and one of the lead researchers, the new images revealed the brain to be vastly more intricate than we had ever imagined:

One synapse, by itself, is more like a microprocessor—with both memory-storage and information-processing elements—than a mere on/off switch. In fact, one synapse may contain on the order of 1,000 molecular-scale switches. A single human brain has more switches than all the computers and routers and Internet connections on Earth.
