Have you ever wondered what sets the successful people apart from the unsuccessful people on this planet?

Do you think it’s talent?

Is it opportunity?

Or maybe it’s just plain luck?

If you think about those people that have a great talent, like a basketball player or a violinist. The became as good as they are because they worked towards their goal (of being the best basketballer or violinist) every day.

And that’s what I’ve been learning from Jeff Olson’s book, The Slight Edge.

Those little things that will make you successful in life, that will secure your health, your happiness, your fulfilment, your dreams, are simple, subtle, mundane things that nobody will see, nobody will applaud, nobody will even notice…Things that seem so insignificant, they couldn’t possibly matter. But they do.    Jeff Olson

It’s the little steps that you take every day, those are the ones that will get you to your goals. It’s not about making giant leaps every now and then. It’s the small steps. Taken every, singe day.

Easy to do, and just as easy not to do.    Jeff Olson

Those little steps you take each day, are the ones that will get you to where you want to go. They’re easy to do, but they’re just as easy not to do. They don’t make a big difference now, so you can think that they don’t really matter. But over time… they matter a lot.

In order to get to where you want, you need to be taking consistent steps in the right direction. Every. Day.
