- 10X Mindset
- How to leverage the past, present, and future (17:37)
- Why 2x is bad for your brain (19:20)

- A 2x goal doesn’t look to the future, it actually looks to the past trying to change as little as possible.
- No excitement, no new energy in the system, no forward movement
- The Past negotiates with you about the future
- Why 10x is good for your brain (22:40)
- Requires change and challenge
- It adds energy: “You gotta go 10x or nothing moves!” 22:35
- 10X Mindset: Don’t forget about the past, Lead with the future
- The past has to justify itself to the future.(23:31)
- “With 10x you start with future, freeing your present as much as necessary from the past.”(24:00)

- Energy: Activities that are free from stuff. Feels like “BulletProof Coffee”

- Envy leads to guilt, blame, scarcity, depletion. Zero-sum. All energy killers.

- Gratitude is connected to Appreciation: psychological and economic meaning.
- “Every time you are grateful you appreciate the value of something.” (49:40)

- “Gratitude is energy and it leads to creativity.” (50:20)
- Creativity is putting things together. You only put things together that you love and appreciate. (50:30)

- Continually surround yourself with people who are energy people, in the “Abundance Neighborhood.” (51:58)
- “Get the past present and future right in your mind.” Understand that the mechanism for growing the future is to increase energy, reduce stuff. (52:55)
