Is "the principle of reaping huge rewards from a series of small, smart choices, made consistently, over a long period of time.” Compounding requires enormous amounts of patience.
For example: Would you rather have (A) $3 million upfront or (B) one penny that doubles in value every day for 31 days?
To maximise your gains, the correct answer is (B). But it doesn’t happen quickly. After 19 days you’d still only have $5,243 and you might feel pretty foolish next to a friend who chose option (A).
“ You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.
The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.”
Everything in your life exists because of a choice you made. Every choice has an impact on your life’s Compound Effect. You can not sleep-walk through life and expect good outcomes.
Successful people aren’t more intelligent/talented, they just have habits that help them be more informed, knowledgeable, skilled, prepared, competent.
It's your small (subconscious) habits and your (conscious) choices that in time compound to the person you are now. To change the future you have to change your habits and actions.
Luck = Preparation + Attitude + Opportunity + Action
The formula is attributed to Seneca, a Roman philosopher. He suggests that luck is not something that happens to us randomly, but rather is something that we create through:
Our brains aren’t designed to make you happy, but to survive. And the best way to survive is to seek out negatives. But 99% of the (negative) news has nothing to do with you. If you are worried all the time it will be impossible to become the best version of yourself.
THE SOLUTION: Put yourself on a media diet. Find healthy alternatives to media:

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
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.
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!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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.
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.
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!
