If I said the sum total of all your efforts today would make you 1/2 a percent better than you were first thing this morning, would you have bothered getting out of bed? Or would you have just rolled over and gone back to sleep?
We like to be bold, think strategically and lay big bets. Most of us wouldn’t consider a 1/2 percent improvement worth the effort.
If however you got 0.5% better today and 0.5% better tomorrow then within 5 months you would be performing at twice the level you do today. In a year you would be 6.17 times more effective then you are today (yes I was sad enough to work it out).
The thing about a half percent improvement is it is achievable.
Little and often, that is the way.
