When it comes to the big things in life – health, fitness, money, family, work – it’s all about compound growth.
Compound growth is the magical power of the long-long run.
The first (and really only) rule of successful compound growth is simple:
Stay in the market.
With money, the strategy is clear: Invest a little each month. Don’t sell. Don’t sell. Don’t sell.
In other areas, how do you stay in the market? You keep showing up.
A little bit, most days.
It’s not about going big and pushing yourself to the brink on any one day. Lucky for us, it’s actually much easier about that. It’s just about showing up … a little bit, most days. Maybe today it’s TWT, tomorrow it’s a walk, and on Thursday it’s yoga or a jog or a set of push-ups.
It’s not about completely changing your diet, or eliminating sugar forever. It’s about eating mostly healthy, most days.
It’s not about that one big promotion or that one career-making job you just need to find. It’s about adding a little value, most days.
It’s not about one big family trip (although those are great), it’s about showing up for your people with love and presence, most days.
A little bit, most days is how you stay in the market.
And if you stay in the market, then, in the long run, you’ll be rich in all the areas that matter.
