the compound effect

darren hardy

A well-written, motivating book that provided me with a recipe (with actual action points at the end of each chapter) to achieve goals by reflecting on how I spend my time. It all boils down to human psychology, as it’s easy to stop and postpone tasks/plans for tomorrow rather than getting stuff done today. It’s easier to stop when results aren’t visible/tangible immediately; however, choices come with a high cost of compounding effect. Therefore, it’s essential to go the extra mile to achieve goals. It might seem negligible at first, but seeing the whole picture can be eye-opening.
