Getting an edge


Looking for a slight edge to notch you up that little bit?

Cool.


Check this out.


“The things that take you out of failure and up toward survival and success are simple. So simple, in fact, that it’s easy to overlook them. Extremely easy to overlook them. It’s easy to overlook them because when you look at them, they seem insignificant. They’re not big, sweeping things that take huge effort. They’re not heroic or dramatic. Mostly they’re just little things you do every day and that nobody else even notices. They are things that are so simple to do—yet successful people actually do them, while unsuccessful people only look at them and don’t take action…Little things that seem insignificant in the doing, yet when compounded over time yield very big results.

You could call these ‘little virtues’ or ‘success habits.’ I call them simple daily disciplines. Simple productive actions, repeated consistently over time. That, in a nut shell, is the slight edge.” (Olson)


Daily disciplines could be things like drinking a glass of water (or 2, or 3 or 4).

Adding an extra minute to your reading time and cranking that up more.

You get the picture.

Imagine that slight edge approach adding up over time. It will take you places…

With ARETE,
