The Compound Effect

Recently I finally picked up The Compound Effect, Suraj had recommended me this book. I liked the simplicity and size in which the author gets done by sharing everything. The book made me feel like a condensed version of Grit, Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, and The power of habit.

The book is divided into 6 chapters: Choice, Habit, Momentum, Influences, and Acceleration. All these chapters are loaded with examples that can help in motivating for sure. 🙂

Simple summary:

One has to add a small change in life and continuously do it without failing. As time progress, repeating and redoing the action will get the desired result. Example: Losing weight, quitting alcohol, and all.

It requires hard work, it is not an overnight achievement. A lot of hard work, persistence, and self-belief are needed.

The author talks about a daily journal, like Benjamin Franklin, to list daily ritual and virtue/vice calculator. He also talks about believing in forming a good habit, keeping a company of great people, avoiding idiot box and spending quality time.

I would recommend this book to everyone.
