Massive Action vs 1% Improvement

Massive success is possible only through massive action, that's not true. It's the tiny improvements (hard to notice), that create incredible change.

The Math?

1% better every day for a year will compound to nearly 38 times better.

1% worse every day for over a  year will bring you close to zero!

Your habits can compound against you - stress or negative self-talk. Or compound for you - knowledge, productivity, skills and relationships.

Atomic Habits- James Clear summary

The Book in 3 sentences- 

  1. An atomic habit is a regular practice or routine that is not only small and easy to do but is also the source of incredible power; a component of the system of compound growth.
  2. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don’t want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change.
  3. Changes that seem small and unimportant at first will compound into remarkable results if you’re willing to stick with them for years.
