There’s No Need to 10x Everything
Growth doesn’t have to be exponential. You don’t need to 10x your revenue or increase your productivity by 100%.
A factory line producing everyday widgets is an optimal target for optimization. A human being, on the other hand, is not.
You are what you are because of a million years' worth of trial and error. Mother Nature took a slimy salamander and transformed it into you.
You’ve won the race. There’s nothing more to optimize.
