I recently read an article from James Clear titled: This Coach Improved Every Tiny Thing by 1 Percent and Here’s What Happened in it he was talking about the benefits of focusing on those small, often seemingly insignificant improvements.
The idea being that if you optimise every area by only 1 %, those small improvements and gains quickly compound to a great overall result.
It’s a topic that’s featured before in ‘Confessions’ and you can read the original article HERE.
Heck – it even came with a handy downloadable worksheet to really start nutting out those 1%ers and small improvements you can start to make consistently.

It’s a proven concept and its one that really boils down to consistency, willpower and forming good habits.
You see, it’s far more ‘exciting’ to make big, sweeping changes that people immediately notice and comment on. It’s the large weight loss phenomenon – ‘oh wow, you’ve lost ‘x’ kgs – you look fantastic’. This is far more satisfying to us than changing our eating habits and consistently dropping a small amount of weight which people are not likely to notice.
Those tiny changes, those small improvements and forming great habits that we practice consistently, in the long run are likely to produce the same if not even greater results as we’ve built such a positive and strong foundation.
So what is it that you could implement, swap, test or optimise in your business that could compound over time to give you a great result with minimum disruption?
