There was a CEO at a company I worked for that always encouraged everyone in the company by mentioning how powerful and impactful getting better at something just 1 % a day was.
If you improve only 1% a day, you will 37 times better at the end of the year!
I recall this quote almost every year on January 1st when I make my new years resolutions. I have actually accomplished some of my new years goals in the years past and I am currently (1% a day at least) working on accomplishing this years new years resolutions.
1% is a small improvement, but it adds up overtime. I have lived with a family for more time than I have lived the single life now and we have a lot of stuff. A small improvement that may make a huge difference in my life might be to declutter. Everyday I will choose to take some thing out of my home and donate to charity or throw away.
“Don’t own so much clutter that you will be relieved to see your house catch fire.”Wendell Berry, Farming: A Hand Book (poetry)
