    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 fourth degree of action. This fourth degree, also known as the 10X Rule, is that level of action that guarantees companies and individuals realize their goals and dreams. The 10X Rule unveils the principle of "Massive Action", allowing you to blast through business clichés and risk-aversion while taking concrete steps to reach your dreams.
