In our last +1, we talked about the fact that, if we could figure out how to take 30 EXPONENTIAL steps, we’d be able to hop in a rocket and go around the Earth two DOZEN times.
 
Rather than get 90 feet down the street, we’d get a few BILLION steps further in our joyful jaunt around the Earth.
 
That’s crazy.
 
And, well, that’s the power of aggregating and compounding seemingly small changes that can have huge impacts on our lives as we watch the magic exponentially grow.
 
I LOVE all the metaphors we can use to think about the power of just showing up again and again and again.
 
We’ve talked about the doubling penny, collecting coins, melting ice cubes, hitting the rock, figuring out combination locks, and rocking marginal gains.
 
Obviously, the metaphors are just metaphors but they all make the same primary point: It’s all about CONSISTENCY.
 
We need to show up again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and …
 
BOOM! 
 
Magic.
 
Which is why I was so fired up to make a little distinction while I was preparing for our Mastery Series session on Work in our Module on Carpe Diem.
 
The basic theme of the class is how to create “Genius Work vs. Mediocre Work.”
 
(I’ll save the details on that distinction for another +1.)
 
As I was preparing for the class, I knew I was going to focus on the equation we’ve been talking about lately:
 
Astonishing Work = Time x (Energy x Focus x What’s Important Now)
 
or: T x (E x F x W.I.N.)
 
Then I had a wonderful epiphany.
 
I added a little C right at the end of that equation.
 
Like so: T x (E x F x W.I.N.)c
 
A choir of angels began to sing as I thought through the implications of the new, Optimized equation: Genius Work = Time x (Energy x Focus x What’s Important Now)Consistency
 
I quickly made some notes.
 
If your Energy is a 100 and your Focus is a 100 and you’re working on a 100-Level Important thing you’d get 1 million points of awesome. 
 
That’s 1,000 (!) times more awesome than if your Energy, Focus and WIN was at a 10.
 
But…
 
Get this.
 
If we believe CONSISTENCY is an exponential force multiplier, then we’d be better off plodding along at the lower numbers but at least doing so consistently.
 
Get this.
 
Although (100 x 100 x 100) is 1,000,000 points of awesome, we’ve gotta know that if we get a ZERO in the consistency score then (100 x 100 x 100)0 = ZERO.
 
Whereas, although (10 x 10 x 10) is only 1,000 points of awesome, we’ve gotta know that if we get a ONE HUNDRED in the consistency score then (10 x 10 x 10)100 = a HUGE number. It almost breaks the calculator coming in at 1e+300. ← That’s a 1 followed by THREE HUNDRED Zeros.
1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
 
Now, here’s the kicker.
 
What do you think would happen if we were able to get ALL of our variables up to a 100?
 
Our Energy is a 100.
Our Focus is a 100.
Our W.I.N. is a 100.
 
AND…
 
Our Consistency is a 100.
 
What’s 1,000,000 to the power of 100?
 
Can you guess?
 
 
Answer: It’s INFINITY.
 
And, that’s Today’s +1.
 
Want to have fun seeing just how Limitless you can go?
 
Get your Energy Optimized. Get your Focus Optimized. Get your ability to focus on What’s Important Now Optimized.
 
And then go do it CONSISTENTLY.
 
Starting Today.
 
+100 +100 +100 to the 100th power.
