One need not do 5000 things well to be successful; there are about a half-dozen things that need to be done well, 5000 times over.

The sooner we can give up the notion that there is a quick fix or an insta-success solution, the better for us. We are constantly bombarded with increasingly sensational claims to get rich, get fit, get younger … all overnight with little effort for small amounts of money. These repetitive marketing messages have distorted our sense of what it really takes to success. We have lost sight of the simple but profound fundamentals of what it takes to be successful.

What you learn or what strategy or tactic you employ, success comes as a result of operating system of the Compound Effect which is the principle of reaping huge rewards from a series of small, smart choices. What is most interesting about this process is that, even though the results are massive, the steps, in the moment, do not feel significant. Whether you are using this strategy for improving your health, relationships, finances, or anything else for that matter, the changes are so subtle, they are almost imperceptible.

The essence of the Compound Effect is this: Small, Smart Choices + Consistency + Time = RADICAL DIFFERENCE.

A daily routine built on good habits and disciplines separates the most successful among us from everyone else. Since your outcomes are all a result of your moment-to-moment choices, you have incredible power to change your life by changing those choices. Step by step, day-by-day, your choices will shape your actions until they become habits, where practice makes them permanent.

You alone are responsible for what you do, do not do, or how you respond to what is done to you. This empowering mindset can revolutionize your life and luck, circumstances or the right situation shall not matter. As a society we do not seem to lack ambition to start and begin all sorts of New Year’s resolution. What most people lack is follow through. Not just starting, but staying. Not just beginning, but continuing – long enough to have the Compound Effect kick in and catapult them into extraordinary results, making visible the accumulated effect of the many seemingly inconsequential choices, behaviors’ and habits performed over time.

Choose Wisely. Seemingly inconsequential decisions shape your destiny!
