EP 10: The 1% Rule of John D. Rockefeller

John D. Rockefeller famously said "I would rather earn 1% off a 100 people's efforts than 100% of my own efforts." He said it in very different time when digital technology was not as prominent as it is today.

In this episode, I share two key ideas on how you could actually leverage technology and not necessarily people, for dramatically increasing your productivity and making your work day far more exciting.


  • He is widely considered the wealthiest American of all time.
  • He has the investor mindset where leveraging is the key to success.
  • Now we have access to affordable technology that can replace humans.
  • Using an app or a SaaS tool can dramatically improve your productivity.
  • Finding the tool you need and figuring out now to use it is very easy nowadays.
  • Choose one part of your daily routine or work processes and automate it with such a tool.
