The Compound Effect is the idea that speaks about how making a series of small, and smart choices can result in big rewards. The little choices that we make regularly and consistently over many years are what really define us; not the big things that define us.
To assist us in bringing about small, consistent improvements in our lives, Darren Hardy guides us through his method of Choices, Habits, Momentum, Influences, and Acceleration. You will learn from The Compound Effect how important habits, influences, and momentum are in your success. Decisions create behaviours, repeated behaviours form habits, and habits control how things turn out.
Making no decision at all is only somewhat worse than making a bad decision. If you don’t, you’ve chosen to accept whatever is given your way as a passive recipient. You are giving someone else control of your life if you are not purposeful about how you live. And they may not be looking out for your greatest advantage. Someone else will determine for you to perform poorly if you don’t decide to achieve well for yourself.
Making smart choices in one area of your life has a rippling effect on other portions of it. Luck is a mix of work, attitude, opportunity, and action.
You should do something every day to grow your abilities, get better at a valuable skill, and improve yourself.
Whether you imagine you can or think you can’t, you’re actually right. Getting an advantage relates to being in the right place at the right time.
