Leverage time

“Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world.”  — Albert Einstein

If you want to know how ordinary people achieve superhuman results, this is it: a few stones moved today is a pile; a few stones moved every day for 50 years is the Great Pyramid of Giza. Masterworks by Bach, Edison, Buffet, and da Vinci are the result of compounding modest daily efforts over long periods of time.

Every clearly defined long-term goal can be reduced to a singular daily habit. Carefully identify that habit. Then begin working on it as soon as possible, every single day, with laser focus. Once you set this habit in motion, relax and let the passage of time do the hard work for you.

But be patient: exponential growth starts slowly, and you will not see any results in the short-term.
