If you want to drastically improve at something your best bet is to work on it continuously, make small adjustments and tweaks every day and stick with it, even if you don’t see immediate results (because you probably won’t).
These tiny, continuous improvements will accumulate over time and make a big difference. Even if you improve just 1% every day you’ll be thirty-seven times better a year from now.
And in the course of a lifetime, that is a drastic change.
If you get one percent better each day for one year, you’ll end up thirty-seven times better by the time you’re done.
The 1 Percent Rule states that over time the majority of the rewards in a given field will accumulate to the people, teams, and organizations that maintain a 1 percent advantage over the alternatives. You don’t need to be twice as good to get twice the results. You just need to be slightly better.
The investment of one hour a day to learning new things is an overlooked gem hiding in plain sight. It can actually double your lifetime output.
Until Next Week
You don’t have to invest a lot of time and energy. Bit by bit, drip by drip, day by day, and soon enough, the difference will be obvious and apparent.
