“Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.”
… George Eliot
The Power of Tiny Changes by M&A
Think about the fact that it only takes a one degree change in temperature to convert water to vapor, or ice to water.
It’s such a tiny change—just one step in a different direction—and yet the results are dramatic.
Now, consider another example where a tiny change is compounded by time and distance. Perhaps you’re trying to travel somewhere specific, but you’re off course by just one tiny degree in the wrong direction…
After one mile, you would be off course by over 92 feet. If you were trying to travel from San Francisco to Washington, D.C., you would land near Baltimore, Maryland, over 42 miles away from your desired destination.
This same philosophy holds true in various aspects of our lives.
The tiniest things we do each day—positive and negative alike—can make all the difference.
They either bring us closer or farther away from where we ultimately want to be.
Think about it…
How many people uphold unhealthy and unproductive habits?
How many people procrastinate on the next positive step?
How many people live every day of their lives moving one degree away from where they ultimately want to be?
Don’t be one of them anymore!
Truth be told, everyone travels 24 hours a day, whether they’re moving in the right direction or not.
Pick something tiny and productive to improve upon, and then make it a daily habit.
Doing so will make all the difference in the world, just a few short weeks down the road.
Success is the sum of small efforts – repeated day in and day out.
