    While human lives are endlessly variable, our most memorable positive moments are dominated by four elements: elevation, insight, pride, and connection. If we embrace these elements, we can conjure more moments that matter. What if a teacher could design a lesson that he knew his students would remember 20 years later? What if a manager knew how to create an experience that would delight customers? What if you had a better sense of how to create memories that matter for your children? This book delves into some fascinating mysteries of experience: Why we tend to remember the best or worst moment of an experience as well as the last moment and forget the rest. Why "we feel most comfortable when things are certain, but we feel most alive when they're not".

    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.
