The Secrets to Peak Performance

The key to long term success is for you to dedicate yourself to continuous improvement. If you become one tenth of one percent more productive each day, that amounts to 1/1000th improvement per working day. Is that possible? Of course it is!

Improve A Little At A Time

If you become one tenth of one percent more productive each day, that amounts to one half of one percent more productive each week. One half of one percent more productive each week amounts to two percent more productive each month and 26% more productive each year.

The cumulative effect if becoming a tiny bit better at your field and more productive amounts to a tremendous increase in your value and your output over time.

How to Double Your Productivity

Twenty-six percent more productive each year, with compounding, amounts to doubling your overall productivity and performance every 2.7 years. If you become 26% more productive each year, with compounding, times 10 years, you will be 1004% more productive over the next decade. That is an increase of ten times over ten years.

The Reason For All Great Successes

This is called the Law of Accumulation, or the Principle of Incremental Improvement. It is the primary reason for all great success stories. By the yard, it’s hard. But inch by inch, anything’s a cinch!

    Thanks for sharing this post with us.

    I appreciate your point of view.

    It helps to take it one step at a time. Baby steps instead of jumping into the deep end of the pool.

    Small adjustments, here and there, can go a long way, such as waking up an hour earlier.

    John Grisham woke up early in the morning in the US South to write a few words before he went off to work (law firm) and look where he is now–a best selling author, wealthy and famous.

    Grisham just tweaked his normal schedule to maximise his productivity.
    This is how the game is lost or won–in the early stages. Cheers.

    To work continuously,that is they key. Even one completed task a day is better than nothing at all. Little by little, work helps to overcome fears and tress because you are moving and not standing still.Ultimately it is about feeling good-when you feel good you can maximise your achievement because you are working with your whole heart.

    I like to be uber-productive on productive days, so that there can be plenty of days to relax…

    Improve A Little At A Time is one of the best way to accomplish more without getting exhausted, there are occasions that I would like more done at once putting all my energy only to get exhausted and discouraged. Going step by step and seeing little results that compounds to big result is a sure way to achieve a lot within a short time.

    Great point about improving a little at a time. The Japanese call this process-Kaizen (Japanese for change). Toyota used this very idea to make small continual improvements, over time they really added up.

    People and organizations can use this process to make huge changes over time. Thanks for the great post.
