Make yourself 1% better every day. Most people try to make huge changes all at once and fail. The concept of 1% works because it is manageable but can create great change over time.
The idea of “1% better” also has a nice twist to it that I like.
When you increase by 1% over time, you do not grow in a linear fashion, but rather, exponentially.
That means that if you stay focused, today could be the least amount of growth you ever experience again and by the end of one year, you will have improved by 3000% or 30X.
Of course life is not as clean-cut as a nice math equation, but the take away from the analogy is this: Experience is the currency of growth.
So every day that you work toward your goal, whether you have made tangible progress or not, you have gained experience.
And over time, it is your experience that is compounding, growing, and will undoubtedly lead to your success.
