Good habits produce results that multiply rapidly like money that grows through compound interest
Productivity compounds. When you accomplish one extra task on any given day, it seems small on that day. But when it is considered over an entire career, it counts. As you automate some tasks, your brain gains freedom to think on more important things.
Also, stress compounds. Little stressors may seem isolated at first, but over time, they compound into serious health issues. Parenting, traffic jams, a slight increase in blood pressure, etc., are common sources of worry. Worrying then compounds into bigger problems.
Negative thought compounds. Accumulating thoughts that don’t enhance life will create a negative reality for you. Be mindful of how you think of yourself and others. Outrage compounds. Often, it is a combination of microaggressions that burst into protests and civil unrest. But we like to pin it on a single event as if it were isolated.
Small changes appear insignificant until it reaches a tipping point or threshold. This threshold is known as the “Plateau of Latent Potential.” To get the results you seek, you need patience.
In this summary, you’ll find a simple but effective strategy that will take you from where you are to where you expect to be in your life. Anyone can apply these principles to any aspect of their life that requires transformation.
