Episode Description

In this week’s Memory Makers Podcast, hosts Russ Van Natta and Danny Gruening explore the ‘Gap and the Gain’ philosophy, created by Dan Sullivan and Benjamin Hardy. In their book, 10x Is Easier than 2x, they advocate for evaluating progress without blinders and share insights on why chasing an idealized future holds you back.

Danny and Russ emphasize measuring gains, building confidence, and appreciating wins by reflecting on their experiences in the FEC industry. They stress the importance of living in the present, celebrating today’s successes, and impacting lives now. It’s a journey, not a ski-lift.

Key Takeaways

  1. Measure Backward for True Progress: Reflect on past gains to get clarity on personal and professional progress.
  2. Escape the Demoralizing Gap Thinking: Embrace wins, big or small, and learn from experiences contribute to building confidence and satisfaction.
  3. Live in the Present: Celebrate the present moment rather than solely focusing on future ideals.

Resources Mentions

In this book by Dan Sullivan and Dr. Benjamin Hardy, they explains why achieving 10X growth is easier than going for 2X growth. To make 10X possible, you must focus on expanding what Dan defines as your four most important freedoms—time, money, relationship, and purpose.
