The Daffodil Principle In Action

The Daffodil Principle In Action

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.

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.

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.

What we accomplish in our life always begins with our willingness to face the uncertainty of everything and be able to move through confidently towards our goal. So keep in mind that time and opportunity don't wait for us, we must take a leap of faith and take action for ourselves.

Identifying Productivity Constraints

What restraints you from achieving your goals? Are they learned feelings of helplessness? Or are they just simply excuses? Remember, whatever you have learned, you can unlearn. 

If your real goal is to dream big dreams and to live without limits, you can set this as your standard and compare everything that you do against it.

Quick hacks won't bring faster results

Instead of reading every self-improvement post, focus on doing the actual work that needs to be done. You can inspire yourself to take action. Committing to the hard, long process is the only way though.
