In his book, The Compound Effect, Darren Hardy explains that the compound effects are a series of small, smart choices that are developed into habits. The steps "at the moment" don't seem that significant. Whatever you are trying to improve, business, home, social, physical, mental, or spiritual . . . the change is subtle. Because the changes are subtle, most people simply quit the steps in developing the habits required for the compound effect. After the eight day of running, they quit because they are still overweight. After two months of piano lessons they quite because they can't play their favorite song yet. Or they stop makinig contributions to their IRA because they have another use for that cash.
The small and seemingly insignificant steps moving them toward their goal, over time will make a radical difference in their life.
