The Power in Just One Percent

The past few weeks I have been doing a lot of reflecting on my year so I can visualise, plan and prepare for the next steps in my life. In the past, I have shared this post on compound interest as it shows the power in small, consistent, daily actions.

Subsequently, today I am going to talk about that philosophy and relating it to all areas of your life – the power of just one percent. What do I mean? Glad you asked…


The Power in Just One Percent

I wonder what your life would look like in 365 days from now, if you added one small conscious action (i.e. one percent) in each important area of your life? And we broke that action down to just one per-cent.

One per-cent with ‘cent’ being short for centum, meaning one-hundredth or 1% of a dollar (100 cents). Yes, adding and extra 1% of effort, skill or knowledge every day for the next 365 days, would equate to 365%. Wow, that could equate to you being 3 and a 1/2 times healthier, happier or wealthier in 365 days!


What Does 1% Look Like for You?

What would a small, conscious, consistent action or bit of effort look like for you? Maybe it is sending a thank you card, opening a savings account with $1 or reading 10 pages of a book. It is totally up to you!

Your small, conscious, consistent actions could be in any of the following areas of life –

  1. Career / Business,
  2. Confidence / Emotional Awareness,
  3. Giving / Contribution / Community,
  4. Family / Friends,
  5. Health / Body / Fitness,
  6. Intimate Relationship,
  7. Leisure / Fun,
  8. Money / Finances,
  9. Personal Growth,
  10. Self-Management,
  11. Space / Physical Environment, and
  12. Travel / Holidays,

As you begin to take your small steps, the first day you can change or improve by 0.01, then day 2 – 0.02, followed by 0.03. Yes I know it is small, however it is something and this is how all change starts!
