Just One Percent Every Day

Just One Percent Every DayWorking towards a goal can be a long and drawn out process and it might seem at times you are gaining little if any ground. But what if you were actually making headway at the rate of just one percent per day?

Sure, one percent does not sound like a lot but trust me it is. One percent more of anything can make a huge difference. What if you add in the theory of compound interest over time? If you improve something by one percent each day for over a year that it a one percent improvement multiplied by 365. Day, after day, after day.

It adds up and it is a lot! You can now see just how powerful just one percent every day is now, can’t you?

Let’s look at the other side of the equation… Do you believe your life could be radically changed by just one percent also; especially if were your efforts or your output that increased by that rate every day? Think about it…

What if you exercised just one percent more each day?

What if you saved one percent more money every month than you do?

What if you spent one percent less each month?

What if you donated one percent more of your time to a charity?

What if you watched one percent less television?

What if you spent one percent less time on Facebook, Twitter, etc?

What if you spent one percent more time on your self-development and education?

What if you took one percent more time for just yourself?

What if drank one percent more water every day?

What if you were one percent more invested in your relationships?

What if you were one percent more decisive and fearless?

What if you took one percent more risks in life?

What if you were one percent more active outdoors?

What if you picked up one percent more of the litter you encounter on a walk?

What if you drove one percent less?

What if you walked one percent more?

What if you had just one percent more time in life?

That one percent sure could make a difference, eh?

By simply adding or subtracting anything in your life by just one percent you can see that your life would produce greatly difference results. Imagine if you donated just one percent more of your time and money to help a charity or good cause. Now imagine if everyone did the same. If everyone stepped up just one percent more to help out, can you see the great sweeping changes that could occur in our society as a whole and in the world?

Think about where just one percent of change, one way or the other, could have a huge impact in your life. Try to commit to taking one percent more effort or action from now on to meet the goals that you have in life. Ask yourself whenever given the chance, “Can I give one percent more here?” And if you can… Then do it.

Do you have any areas in your life that you could concentrate on more, just one percent every day, and get better results?
