The compound effect is a must-read book for all those who wish to do something remarkable in life.
In our lives, we strive hard to climb the ladder of success. Since success depends upon beaucoup factors, we often get confused about what steps to follow.
This book by Darren Hardy “The compound effect” answers this pertinent question.
The author of this book has explained the philosophy of compounding in a consummate manner.
The main ideas discussed in the book are as follows:
1.Overnight success is a myth:
Everything takes time to get into shape. Only a few people get overnight success. Usually, success requires a worthwhile plan.
2. Tiny regular steps are more important than occasional giant strides.
Let’s take an example. You want to lose weight, and you have concluded that doing exercise is extremely important for losing weight. In this case, doing exercise for 20 minutes is far better than doing exercise for fours on Sunday.
3. In the beginning, do not seek perfection, focus on regularity.
Whenever you want to achieve excellence in a field, start being regular. Do not focus on perfection initially. Just try to be involved in your task. Once you start feeling comfortable, you enjoy the process, and then excellence is a byproduct.
