In part 3 of our series on my favorite books, I’m sharing an old standby. In fact, I think this is the only book on my list of four that I’ve talked about previously on the podcast.
I’m talking about The 10X Rule by Grant Cardone (Amazon Link)
Now, this is certainly more of a “business” book than a music book. BUT, if you want to achieve WILD success in anything, including music/drumming, this book certainly will speak to you. The basic concept of the book is this: any goal or level of success will typically require 10 times the effort that you originally think it will. So, if you want to achieve something (like becoming a pro drummer), why not start out putting in 10x the effort than you think the goal requires? If you want guaranteed success at something, pick a goal, and then put in 10 times the work.
