1-Minute Dailies: Series I
Day 2

Do you know that as of 2019 only 5% of the people in the world have taken a plane trip?

I bring that up because in working over the past 3 decades around the world in more than 50 countries, most people I meet do not know about “compound interest.” My guess is about 1% or less of the people on the planet understand COMPOUNDING and it’s non-linearity!

Here’s an example: If you take a US penny and double it, and then everyday double that amount again, 2-4-8-16… On DAY 27, your penny doubled everyday will be worth more than 1 million dollars.

Most people can’t conceptualise NON-LINEAR GROWTH, and it occurs everywhere compounding does… including in your personal development journey, thus… a little bit goes a long way — just as I noted in 2-98 deep work, where 2% of your time is focused ATTENTION. BUT if you skip the investments you make, you lose the power of compounding, just like if you skip “doubling a penny.”

Every 24 hours you INVEST 1 minute for development, read your daily — put your subconscious mine to work in the background — and watch your EFFECT become ATTRACTIVE.

Invest in compounding daily, don’t skip.
