Mentoring is the new human hack, like spark notes for your life!
Think of your journey this way, when youre in your 20s and 30s intentionally seek out mentors over 40 who can help you dream, gain confidence and think through life altering decisions. Then when youre in your 40s and 50s do the same in reverse, pursue mentors under 40 in order to stay socially relevant, industry knowledgeable and physically fit. Mentors help you pinpoint ideal paths to pursue in life and work. The 40:40 Principle gives you the roadmap to finding life-changing mentors.
Mentoring with The 40:40 Principle is needed now more than ever because most people underestimate how the seasons of their lives can dramatically influence their success.

While most people operate with only three degrees of action-no action, retreat, or normal action-if you're after big goals, you don't want to settle for the ordinary. To reach the next level, you must understand the coveted 4th degree of action. This 4th degree, also know as the 10 X Rule, is that level of action that guarantees companies and individuals realize their goals and dreams.
The 10 X Rule unveils the principle of "Massive Action," allowing you to blast through business clichŽs and risk-aversion while taking concrete steps to reach your dreams. It also demonstrates why people get stuck in the first three actions and how to move into making the 10X Rule a discipline. Find out exactly where to start, what to do, and how to follow up each action you take with more action to achieve Massive Action results.Learn the "Estimation of Effort" calculation to ensure you exceed your targets Make the Fourth Degree a way of life and defy mediocrity Discover the time management myth Get the exact reasons why people fail and others succeed Know the exact formula to solve problems
Extreme success is by definition outside the realm of normal action. Instead of behaving like everybody else and settling for average results, take Massive Action with The 10 X Rule, remove luck and chance from your business equation, and lock in massive success.
