Naval's Rule of 10,000 iterations

Naval's Rule of 10,000 iterations ​

Amplify what's good by starting with bad, Apple Simplicity, and the Failures of Geniuses

Amplify what's good by starting with bad, Apple Simplicity, and the failures of Geniuses ​ ​

Naval Ravikant is today’s Modern Socrates. Spitting bullets of truth. Moving from one culture to another. From CEO and Angel Investor to Twitter Icon turned Podcaster.

Amplify what’s already good…

But usually that starts with something “bad”.

Naval Ravikant says it’s less important about reaching 10,000 hours to achieve mastery…

Instead it’s about striving for volume of iterations

An iteration is repeating a process so that you get closer to your desired result…

And for some maybe that’s 10,000 iterations other’s it’s 143.

The more iterations is what gives way to improving something instead of time.

Being okay with pushing out something even when it’s not perfect..

Being okay to “ship” as Seth Godin would say.

Knowing failure is a part of the formula…

Because that just means there’s room for improvement.

While Blackberry had a QWERTY keyboard, Apple came out with a phone with no keyboard and a sleek screen…

Apple then did it again when they removed the single home button with a phone with no on-screen buttons. 

Michael Jordan said “I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career…and that is why I succeed”…

The cleaning product 409 took 409 times to perfect their formula…

Edison took 1,000 at-bats to inventing the light bulb (Thank goodness)…

All geniuses with a collection of failures.

Iterations…

That’s how you amplify your brilliance to the world.

Mind and Mastery

I take you behind the scenes on what I’ve learned working with BlitzMetrics, a marketing firm that’s powered some of the world’s largest brands like Nike and the Golden State Warriors. 

You’ll hear about my approach to marketing, branding, and what I’ve learned when it comes to mindset. Because without the latter, it’s tough to do the former. Let’s stay connected and grow together.
