Small improvements tiny steps to big results
“It is so easy to put too much emphasis on the goalks we want to achieve and the identities we want to establish for ourselves and underestimate the value of making small improvements on a daily basis.
Too often, we convince ourselves that massive success requires massive action. Whether it is losing weight, running a marathon, writing a book, earning a degree or certificate, or achieving any other goal, we often put enormous pressure on ourselves to accomplish these goals and do it fast.
On the contrary… improving by 1% isn’t at all noticeable—sometimes it is irrelevant for months—but it can be far more meaningful, especially in the long run. The difference a tiny improvement can make over time is electrifying . Here’s how the math works out: if you can get 1 percent better each day for one year, you’ll end up thirty-seven times better by the time you’re done. Conversely, if you get 1 percent worse each day for one year, you’ll decline nearly down to zero. What starts as a small win or a minor setback accumulates into something much more.
1% BETTER EVERY DAY
“Habits are the compound interest of self-improvement. This is no different than money in the bank that money multiplies with interest.
The effects of your behaviors and the things you learn from them and the habits multiply as you repeat them. They seem to make little difference on any given day and yet the impact they deliver over the months and years can be enormous.
Think about a baby, an infant. Or a puppy dog. No knowledge base or skills whatsoever at a certain point in their life...but with persistent observation and trial and error they learn that they can achieve what they want by repeating a certain thing over and over again. Do you think a newborn baby is born with the knowledge to know that when he or she cries that mom will come pick them up ?? Why do some children
NOT cry as much as others? Perhaps their mothers did not respond by soothing the child the way it wanted. If a newborn can learn a simple response and build habits needed to form behaviors… you can too.
