4-5-17… Incremental Changes

Life overall is about trajectory and incremental changes.

The small changes you make on a daily basis add up to huge changes over time.

The Japanese call this the Principle of Kaizen and it’s one of our Core Values at CFB.

Take for example investing.  If I were to invest a dollar a day into my savings account with the accrual of compounding interest over a lifetime I’d have a great deal of money.

In golf, if I make one small incremental change in the angle of my golf club head, the golf ball could end up 30 yards off of where I want it to be down the fairway.

Little changes matter, and lucky for you, you can take advantage of that with your body as well.

For example, making the small change of taking sugar out of your coffee in the morning can have a profound effect on your day.

Spending 5 minutes meditating in the morning can make clinical changes in your brain chemistry.

The little things matter.  

On the other end of the spectrum, those small cheats that you have 3-4 times a week make a difference as well.  By continually introducing bad things in the system, you are perpetually hindering results.  

You’d be better off to push it to one day and go to town then having a bunch of small incremental cheats throughout the week.

The little things matter.  

What little things have you done recently that have helped you progress towards your goals?
