The Slight Edge

slight-edgeThe Slight Edge: Turning Simple Disciplines into Massive Success and Happiness

by Jeff Olson

The lessons of this book are simple. But applying them is not easy. If they were, there would be more successful people.

The slight edge is the ability to take focused actions over time to acheive big results.

Just like practicing piano every day. Put in an hour a day and you’ll get a little better at first. But continue that daily for 10 years and you’ll be world class.

My takeaways here may be a little repetitive. The book itself said the same message over and over in different ways. It’s not, however, a sign of new ideas to tell. Only that the main idea is incredibly important.

Very powerful concepts. Simple, but not easy.
