10X Thinking is a strategic mindset used by companies
such as Google within Silicon Valley to innovatively
improve their products and services. It challenges them
to think beyond the conventional understanding of what
is technically possible to make their product/service
10X better. This way of thinking can also be used to
challenge the way we improve our personal lives - for
instance by asking ourselves questions such as, "What
would we accomplish if our goals were 10X bigger" or
"How can we make tasks 10X faster."  Join us as we
discuss the concept of 10X thinking.
