The Compound Effect and What It Means

Compound Effect
Hey Guys! It’s been a few days since my last post but I have been gathering some great content for you guys looking for some productive tips and motivation. A friend of mine who I met at a conference a few years ago called me and we had an amazing conversation about some of the things he’s implementing in his own business recently. He is a young entrepreneur who owns Spokane Garage Services in Spokane, WA and is the true definition of a hustler. I truly value our talks and his input.

He just read a book called The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy and said he’s seen great success after implementing the strategies in the book into his business and his personal life. Here are a few of the notes and tips from our talk:

The compound effect is ultimately the collection of all the decisions you make that ultimately shapes your destiny. This is directly correlated to the ripple effect which states that the decisions you make have a lasting effect on future outcomes. I started to reflect on this theory in my own life where some of the decisions I made effected the outcomes of things that happened later in my life. I think if we thought more consciously about the ripple effect in our lives we would question some of our decision-making.

“The first step towards change is awareness.”

As we talked about self-awareness in our last post, in the book Hardy talks about change. When you want to see change in your life you have to first identify what you want to change. Once you have identified what you want to change you need to have the strategy and awareness of how you are going to execute of your game plan. What might hold you back? Who might stand in your way? When you can identify these barriers before hand your chances of actually succeeding will increase greatly.

Lastly, if you are someone who is looking to improve production and drive overall results you need to start tracking your daily habits. I love this quote from John C. Maxwell… “You will never change your life until you can change something you do daily. The secret to success is found in your daily routine.” Change your thinking! Stop thinking about how hard it will be toget to the end and think about how you can do your absolute best right now! Today! Find a routine that breeds success and stick to it!

Ok guys that’s all I got for now. I hope you can take some value out of this post and again as always if you have any questions hit me up at [enter email here]. I should have some more content tomorrow for you guys. Be great!
