A little bit everyday leads to BIG results-The Compound Effect book-My Biggest Takeaways

On a recent episode of James Altucher's podcast (episode #385); Mr. Altucher mentioned something he's talked about before.   Improving 1% on a regular basis, on a particular skill/task compounds and leads to significant results.   I heard this after reading Darren Hardy's book 'The Compound Effect.'     Then it became crystal clear.   I'd been doing this for some time.

Examples; reading books a little bit every day would lead to completed reads.    Same with audiobooks.     I've finished artwork, podcasts, articles this way.   I'm currently working on a diorama for my action figures.   I've been doing the same with video games as I'd like to add more game reviews to this podcast.    An inch regularly taken in the intended direction, leads to the finish line.

Reading Mr. Hardy's book laid the groundwork for this lesson which I'd heard about before but never gave too much mind.    How does the old saying go?   You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.   That's me.

This is a synopsis of this book here.  

Here are 5 of my biggest takeaways from Darren Hardy's 'The Compound Effect.'

(These are not related to the point I discussed above)

-Page 30. 'I was free to fly.   No matter who was elected president, how badly the economy tanked, or what anybody said, did or didn't do, I was still 100 percent in control of me.   Through choosing to be officially liberated from past, present, and future victimhood, I'd hit the jackpot.   I had the unlimited power to control my destiny.'

-Page 60.   'Uprooting bad habits that have grown into mighty oaks is going to be arduous and difficult; to see the process through will require something greater than even the most relentless determination-willpower alone won't cut it.'

-Page 139. 'Put another way; you will get in life what you accept and expect you are worthy of.'

-Page 135.   This was a quote from John Wooden in the book. 'Mentoring is the true legacy.   It is the greatest inheritance you can give to others.   And it should never end.   It is why you get up every day.   To teach and be taught.'

-Page 140.   'Identify the influence the input of media and information is having on your life.   Determine what input you need to protect your mind from and how you are going to keep your mind regularly flushed with positive, uplifting, and supportive input.'

This was a great book and a short read.    Anyone can apply this compounding method.   Have you read 'The Compound Effect?'    Thoughts? Comments?   Let me know.

Recommended Movies & TV. June-December 2022 and Overall Favorites of 2022.

Check out this episode! YouTube Version These are my favorite movies and TV show from June-December 2022. June Insidious 1 & 2 (Amazon & Netflix) I'd never seen the Insidious movies. However, my younger brother watched them and told me they were creepy(which piqued my interest). In June, the first part was available on Prime Video, and the sequel and third films were on Netflix. I binged all three, but I preferred the first two as they wrapped up the Lambert family storyline.    Black Phone (movies) The next Blumhouse movie on this list. The movie pundits I follow talked about this Black Phone's great word of mouth from early screenings. Saw this in theaters and was amazed at Ethan Hawke's villainous performance. His 2nd turn as a bad guy in 2022(first in Moon Knight on Disney+ months earlier, but much better here). Umbrella Academy S3 (Netflix) I like the Umbrella Academy and its different take on the superhero genre. The protagonist dysfunctional family consists o
