Appreciate the Marginal Gains

Food For Thought: Appreciate the Marginal Gains


💡 Success is often the result of compounding gains i.e. If we get 1% better each day for one year, we end up thirty-seven times better by the time the year is done.


The best thing is this compounding effect works for relationships, income, health, habits – anything that we set our mind on improving.


Like an athlete invests in training today to reach peak later (e.g. the Olympics), in life it’s the same – we need to learn and get better every day to sustain peak performance later in life (new skills, education, etc.).


We may not notice getting 1% better at something tomorrow, but by the time we’re at 10%, 25%, or 37% better, we will start to see a significant change in our abilities.


High performers get out of bed and work on themselves each day realising that regular small improvements add up to large eventual gains.


Personal Growth and consistent improvement is what powers personal transformation and opens many new doors.


💎 Consistency is the Snowball Effect we can use to trigger change across all areas of our life for the better 💎

Fuel the mind to succeed

Fuel the mind to succeed

💡 In a world where news and information are at our fingertips, it may not often be easy to control what we think about because (either) internal or external forces look to steal our attention.

But just like athletes fuel their bodies for peak performance (by calibrating every calorie they consume), in the same way, successful entrepreneurs and leaders are intentional about the fuel they feed their minds.

What makes the ordinary different to the extraordinary is optimizing the brain for success, and below are some tips to consider:

✅ First, understanding our intrinsic motivation and inspiration is core to move, create, and live-in purpose. To discover one’s intrinsic sources, we need to gain self awareness.

✅ Once we gain a certain level of self-awareness, our actions toward success and mastery will be sustained by a QUALITY source of fuel.

✅ Secondly, spend time in the presence of remarkable people. This does not have to be physically but also includes reading biographies of other individuals considering our own development. Remember, success leaves clues❗️

✅ Lastly, visualise what success looks like DAILY. When it comes to tapping into our subconscious mind, so we can succeed in anything we like, visualizing what we want or what our goal is important.

💎 If we always do what we always do, we will always get what we always have currently 💎

Direction is enough to make your next choice

Direction is enough to make your next choice

💡 As entrepreneurs, one is bewildered with many decisions, especially in a young upcoming business. Most often, making good decisions requires us to balance the seemingly opposing forces of emotion and rationality.

An ideal world would be one where we are able to predict the future, accurately perceive the present and have insight into the minds of others and deal with uncertainty.

Unfortunately, ideal does not exist. So how does one then manage uncertainty if they feel alone

✅ Have a personal AND business blueprint

➡️ An entrepreneur’s personal and business goals are inextricably linked. Why? Cause our businesses fulfil NOT ONLY our personal goals, BUT also create sustaining impact in the lives of the customers we serve.

✅ Is there a passion and emotion linked to the business?

➡️ As an entrepreneur, long hours and certain sacrifices are required to grow a business. But when we are emotionally connected with our WHY and PASSION (both in business and our personal life), putting in long hours won’t feel like a sacrifice. 

💎 If we obsess over whether we are making the right decision, we are basically assuming that the universe will reward us for one thing and punish us for another ~ Deepak Chopra 💎

The science to unlocking creativity

The science to unlocking creativity

💡 “I’m not really a creative person” may be a really common sentence for many when asked to do something, such as starting a business, or doing something outside their comfort zone.

Yet, could it really be that some of us are born to be more creatively gifted than others and end up running great businesses and lifestyles whilst others are merely ordinary❓

✅ The truth is, (as scientific studies have shown) NO. We all have the be creative capacity to unlock anything we consciously choose to do, whether its business or in our personal life.

The key is to UNLOCK it, and here’s how:

✅ Schedule creativity time every week in the calendar. This environment should be a safe place that provides for a dopamine high, relaxed state of mind. These scientific factors are ideal for creativity and idea formation.

✅ Ideas need to marinate, bake, and form before they move forward. An undistracted environment that allows us to explore our internal creativity is core to this. Anything from exercising, to listening to inspirational music to salt baths. 

💎 Finding time isn’t always easy, but it’s worth it. So, in the name of creativity, schedule time to for the things that matter, turn off all distractions and be ready to discover something new 💎

Know the direction, and the destination arrives

Know the direction, and the destination arrives

💡 Success is a climb. It’s a journey. It’s lifelong and built with undulating and unpredictable ups and downs, especially for those venturing into entrepreneurship. Success is built upon risk, change, and personal development.

This entrepreneurial journey teaches us how to cope with failure, embrace and celebrate the small wins and get up to push onward towards our dreams.

Yet many a time, at the first instance of failure, some of us may feel the need to give up. Why?

✅ Conventional wisdom advises that one spends time knowing exactly where to go and the steps to get there. This assumes a clear destination with a clear path of preparation.

This wisdom is outdated though, especially in the context of entrepreneurship, and our approach should rather embrace the following:

✅ Understand that true growth occurs when we start taking steps towards what we want in light of our purpose, our why (both in our individual capacity and business).

✅ When we focus our efforts on the impact we create, together with the lives we change as part of our existence, we begin to attract mini destinations in light of our ultimate end destination.

💧 Don’t believe destination to be a place. Visualise destination as a feeling; the experience of what it feels like to deeply move, help, and contribute to the world at large 💧
