The power of exponential thinking

Exponential thinking is powerful, but not ‘natural’ or easy for the novice to grasp. It is at the core of leverage, how successful people are able to achieve more by doing less. Even though it is largely conceptual for personal development purposes, exponential is very real and very effective.

The example below is an example of how elegantly powerful exponential thinking is…

Did you know that if you could fold a piece of typical paper 42 times you would have a tower that would stretch to the moon?

Ahh you say, but it’s impossible to fold a piece of paper more than eight times. Turns out, like so many unreferenced claims, that isn’t true. The record is in fact 12.

Still that twelve-fold piece of paper isn’t even table height – it’s hard to imagine getting from table height to the Moon in 30 more folds. That’s because our brains are inclined to think linearly, not exponentially.

Imagine what would happen if you adopted Exponential Mindset Thinking?!?!

Nothing Is Impossible

Nothing is impossible unless you think it is. Watch this YouTube video to see what I mean. As you know, I teach the Exponential Mindset and for some people it’s a nebulous and vague concept. This 43-second video makes it real showing you that nothing is impossible unless you think it is.

The question of the day is:
How many bricks could you carry – in what you do?

Are you as exponential as this guy is? If not, why not? It costs him NOTHING to be TWICE as productive as the next guy – if he’s getting paid by the brick, he makes TWICE as much!

Ka-Ching!
