The Compound Effect

by Sep 30, 2017About, Books, Core

THE COMPOUND EFFECT is a book written by the publisher of Success Magazine, Darren Hardy. He describes how small incremental changes, gradually improved over time, can lead to profound differences in abilities and outcomes. Hardy uses real-world examples to demonstrate the effects of the methods he suggests, and they’re all things that anyone could apply to their lives immediately.

There are countless parallels between THE COMPOUND EFFECT
and Goodwin Davis. Goodwin Davis exists to help kids begin making small incremental changes to their habits during their teen years so that their lives can take off like a rocket during their 20’s. These kinds of changes are exactly what this book proposes, and in many ways, it’s the blueprint for how Goodwin Davis can help your kids excel in life. It won’t be fast. It won’t be easy. If they invest the time, the results will follow.

This is a great read for anyone of any age. There are so many actionable pieces of advice that will improve your long-term happiness and success. No matter where you are in life, this book will give you several new perspectives on how to view your goals and the barriers that stand in the way. The formula for success has long been the same, and this is a detailed explanation of using the slow-and-steady approach in our instant-gratification world.

Notable Quotes:

Small, Smart Choices + Consistency + Time = RADICAL DIFFERENCE.

It’s not the big things that add up in the end; it’s the hundreds, thousands, or millions of little things that separate the ordinary from the extraordinary.

Forget about willpower. It’s time for why-power. Your choices are only meaningful when you connect them to your desires and dreams. The wisest and most motivating choices are the ones aligned with that which you identify as your purpose, your core self, and your highest values. You’ve got to want something, and know why you want it, or you’ll end up giving up too easily.

No matter what has happened to you, take complete responsibility for it—good or bad, victory or defeat. Own it. My mentor Jim Rohn said, “The day you graduate from childhood to adulthood is the day you take full responsibility for your life.
