The Slight Edge

The Slight Edge is a philosophy; it represents a way of thinking: what we know, how we hold that knowledge, and what we do.

Consistently repeated daily actions + time = unconquerable results.

The secret ingredient is straightforward: to do the small things over and over again until success kicks in. Most of these small things are extremely easy to do – such as choosing between a salad or a packet of French fries, saving a penny or spending a penny. Yet, compounded over time, they can produce massive results.

The Seven Daily Disciplines For Success

Every day we are either moving towards the direction we desire or further away from it based on the decisions we make which determine where we end up. No one fails overnight – nor do you succeed overnight.

The difference is in creating our own formula of daily disciplines in seven areas for success that we decide and then design for ourselves: your health, happiness, relationships, personal development, finances, career and our impact on the world. 

The best news: you can start anytime you choose.

  • For the slight edge to work, you have to do something, and keep doing it until you succeed.
  • The results are not immediately visible. The small activities seem insignificant, so it’s easy to give up or stop doing the small actions required to deliver results.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
