The daffodil principle is taught as a great principle of celebration where we are taught to move towards our goals one step at a time even if we're taking baby steps to reach them. It teaches the importance of being patient and how it correlates to why extraordinary successes happen:

  1. Ordinary actions are done consistently
  2. Regular feedback is provided where you're self-aware of what works and what doesn't and with this, you improve the former to maximize possible outcomes.

The Daffodil Principle

samuelthomasdavies.com

When trying to achieve a certain goal, taking action is merely not enough, you must also constantly assert change and improve the process you're using as well.

Set yourself up with manageable expectations and try to improve at least 1 percent a day - in the long term - you will only thank yourself as that 1 percent compounds on itself and produces results you could have never imagined. Whether it may be 1 percent every day or every week, it still produces significant outcomes.

There are two ways to measure your progress with the daffodil principle, and those are to make qualitative and quantitative improvements towards yourself or your goals.

If by chance your goal is to write a book, then the qualitative improvement you could do is to increase your knowledge in grammar and syntax; for quantitative you could write a thousand words a week, as long as it is 1 percent more than last week.

Consistent actions and feedback result in great outcomes.
