10X leaders are characterized by unique traits that enable them to stand tall when the chips are down.
Following conventional wisdom when the tide is rough is not something that can help someone stand out of the rest of the pack.
Hence 10X leaders be it Andy Grove of Intel or Ronald Amundsen who conquered South Pole , favor empiricism as the foundation for decisive actions.
Had analysis based on conventional wisdom always worked , 10X leaders would not have stood out
