What is the compound effect?

The small bad or good choices that become the part of your life, like eating fast food on three days a week or go for exercise in the gym that effects time by time on our body.

Bad choices make worst impact, where as good choices make great impact. This is called the compound effect.

Success and failure are the results of small, seemingly unimportant choices we make everyday. -Darren Hardy

The Compound effect & Consistency in action:

Now, here is an example from my own life.

Few months ago, I was getting fat by eating lots of fast food on each day. My mind processing was slowing down, I wasn’t even able to create smaller logic’s in my computer programs because of the fat brain. My working routine was disturbed and I was became so lazy.

Than i decided, to take action against my own bad habit of eating fast food. I added following choices in my life that time and seriously they worked.

Fast food
White Sugar
Oily foods

Cardio exercise daily

For at least three months consistently. Do you know what happened? I completely transformed my self from fat to smart.
It is very important if you want results in life, you need to be consistent.

Work Harder: (No excuses)

Many people asked me how I learn so fast. I always have answer for such type of question that also written in the compound effect:

It doesn’t matter how smart you are or are not, you need to make up in hard work what you lack in experience, skill, intelligence, or innate ability. If your competitor is smarter, more talented, or experienced you just need to work three or four times as hard.

Take Responsibility:

You are 100% responsible for all your choices, behavior and habits.

The person who maintain the same action, no improvement happen for long term.
The person who maintain and improve the same action, always be successful.
The person who made not actions, consider him fall from his success path.

Below is the chart that represents, the three stages. And decide what do you actually want to be?

It plays most important role in our success. Tracking is just like managing your life on daily basis, what bad choices you made that is effecting your life and needs to improve them. Just write them on your diary and track them, what needs to be excluded and included from life like your earning, spending, about your health and many others. You will start seeing results in action.

Why everything is possible?

All your hows will be meaningless until your whys are powerful enough.

What if i give you the task that, I will give you 500$ if you jump into the river and bring that floating wood for me. If you can swim you will definitely do that right? But, what about if I assign you to bring my wedding ring from the same river that just slips from my hand and now in river? You will definitely ignore that task. Because, why would you do that to risk your life by searching my ring in whole river for the sake of 500$.

Similar example given below:
If your child is on opposite building and that building is on fire, you will immediately do some action to save him.
