Darren Hardy: The Compound Effect Audio Book Summary
The Compound Effect is a compelling book by Darren Hardy which explains one simple concept %u2013 that the success or failure that we enjoy is the result of the small choices that we make each and every day.
The secret to success is simple %u2013 just make the right decision, then the right decision again, and again. Over a long period of time if you keep making the right decisions you will succeed. Sometimes, the right decision is not particularly appealing %u2013 of course you%u2019d rather watch Star Wars than sit down and work %u2013 but if you want to be successful, you need to put some work into it. The more you work hard, the easier success will seem to come, and the more motivated you will be to keep on working.
Can you honestly say that if you keep doing what you%u2019re doing now, you%u2019ll be happy with where you are in five years time? If you can%u2019t, then you will need to make a change, today. Each choice you make, and each step you take will have a bigger effect on your life than you first think. If you%u2019re spending all night drinking and partying, showing up to work tired and unable to concentrate, skipping the gym because you%u2019re so tired, and eating junk food, you%u2019ll find that you put yourself in a negative spiral %u2013 you have less energy, you feel bad, you aren%u2019t motivated, you do bad work, your boss shouts at you so you feel even worse and you make even more bad decisions.
Every big upheaval that you have in your life can be attributed to a series of small, bad decisions. The Compound Effect is about reversing that %u2013 stop wasting time and money and start building positive habits. Change one habit at a time. If you are struggling financially, start tracking how much you spend and make a point of cutting down on frivolous purchases %u2013 spending $3 a day on Starbucks equates to more than $1000 a year. Watching an hour of bad TV a day wastes time that you could have put towards fitness or studies.
The core idea of the book is that the more effort you contribute, the more you get out of it. Success is, in his words, not something that you should chase, but something that you will eventually attract if you become the right sort of person.
Success gets easier after that initial effort because the more effort you put into something, the more momentum you build. Consistency will always be rewarded. One mistake that a lot of people make is to relax and stop working so hard once they start seeing results %u2013 this is a bad choice, because it means that you lose the momentum that got you started in the first place. It%u2019s not a wise decision to stop working; it will mean that you lose your results and have to start all over again. Build a routine, stick to it, and surround yourself with people who want you to succeed.
