Small Consistent Effort

It took me a few moments to work out what the above mathematical calculations meant.

The first line means that if you keep doing the same thing you’ve always done, every day, for 365 days (1 year), you’ll still be in the same place.

The second line means that if you improve your life by just 1% every day, by the end of the year you’ll be 37.7 times greater than at the start.

It seems too good to be true, but this is the true power of small changes and cumulative gains. I mentioned this in my post about How to Sort Your Life Out.

I think the blogger and entrepreneur James Altucher also sets a goal for himself to improve 1% every day. Now I can see why.
