  1. We’re aiming to reach 50k members and we’re currently at less than 3k. Our current business strategy will get us there in 4 years. What is the bvs to get there in 2 years? in 1 year? Is there one massive strategic change we need to do or do we implement dozens or small to mid-size changes? Do we increase the product line or focus on fewer products and market the hell out of them. We can see the bvs but the road to get there is still a tad elusive.

  2. As a Team Leader in my work for promoting peace and justice, I sense that my current power is 1. It is not optimized. The people I work with, the projects I begin and lead, the new contacts, the new ideas are not generated well. It is 1. I want to increase my current work power to x10. I want it x10 in terms of projects, in terms of new ideas, in terms of speed.

  3. Totally have to agree with Aidans comment. I know I suck at delegating. Perhaps I feel that sometimes it’s just easier if I do the task, that way I have complete control over the task and I know I can complete it with the efficiency and quality required. But this can be a bottle neck and my bvs is to delegate the tasks and train 10 others to do the task as efficiently and to the same level of quality. This way there is an overall improvement in both quality and efficiency.

  4. CVS = 8 hours in a day, I can improve my output by 25% by working 10 hours a day instead (minimal impact on my company’s output).
    BVS = Delegating appropriate jobs AND motivating those team members (and all other team members) can increase my output of important tasks AND have a meaningful impact on the company’s output. X10!

    I feel like I’m OK at delegating, but my motivating could be improved. Off to see if I can motivate someone! Hopefully I don’t do the opposite…

  5. I tried to get beyond a narrow view on the situation and began to develop a holistic understanding, i dealt with the situation like an outer observer does. I kept my self away from considering usual common sense, determined all things that could be done, then I traced out some practical connections between those things (×10) , that was to get a new innovative picture of the situation (BVS).

  6. Ten ways I can improve my results
    1. Clearly, define and understand my CVS
    2. Clearly, define and understand my desired BVS
    3. Decide ways of moving from my CVS to BVS
    4. Write down the paths of moving from CVS to BVS
    5. Prioritize the paths from most doable to least doable
    6. Pick the best path to my BVS
    7. Decide on how I can multiply that BVS by 10
    8. Decide on list of actions that will give me my new BVS
    9. Write down the actions from most doable to least doable
    10. Pick the most appropriate action and implement that

  7. I can increase my well being to 10 times today by counting blessings and listing atleast 1-15 things that I am thankful for.

  8. To increase my profit by 10 I have to leverage my work output, my marketing and my administration

  9. I can X10 the number of challenging questions I ask. Questions that moves the team’s frame of mind into different possible solution spaces. Hopefully, the solution space broadens enough that the team can escape somewhat from their current view.

  10. Improve my copy writing by BVS: creating 10 ads promoting 1 product vs CVS (1 ad, 1 product)
