365 Days to a Balanced Life Journey – Day 51

Quote of the Day

“I do not try to dance better than anyone else, I only try to dance better than myself” – Mikhail Baryshnikov

I am excited by a powerful value statement that really resonated with me.  What is it?

Aim for a 1% improvement every single day

That’s it!  I think all of us could agree that a 1% improvement is something we are capable of.
Well, the power of this is that if you do this every single day, then you will completely transform yourself and your life in less than 1 year (hmm right on target with Balance 365).

Einstein used to say that “the power of compounding is one of the most powerful forces in the world.”

Looking at change from this perspective takes all the pressure off.  Just aim to be 1% better today than you were yesterday, every day.  Simple isn’t it?

What do you plan to change today?

Today I am going to work on guiding my thoughts towards things I DO want, not the things I DON’T want.
