Why tiny changes make a big difference

Why tiny changes make a big difference

  • There is a term ‘the aggregation of marginal gains' which is the philosophy of searching for a tiny margin of improvement in everything you do.
  • Just as the money multiplies through compound interest, the effects of your habits multiply as you repeat them.
  • Habits are a double-edged sword. Bad habits can destroy you but good habits can build you.

Plateau of Latent Potential

Plateau of Latent Potential

  • People make a few small changes, fail to see the desired result and they quit. However, in order to get the desired result, habits need to persist long enough to break through this plateau which the author calls the Plateau of Latent Potential.
  • If you are still unable to build a good habit or break a bad one, don’t be disappointed. It is because you have not yet crossed the Plateau of Latent Potential.

Forget about goals, focus on building systems instead

Forget about goals, focus on building systems instead

  • Goals are about the results that you want to achieve, but systems are about the processes that lead to those results.
  • So forget goals, instead get busy building systems.
  • Imagine you have a messy room and you set a goal to clean it and assume you cleaned it, but if you maintain the same habit that leads to the messy room, you will again get a room filled with clutter.
  • Hence, to get a neat and tidy room, you need to build the system i.e. improve your habits.

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.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

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!
