The Compound Effect

The Compound Effect is the principle of achieving significant results from a series of small, intelligent actions, made consistently, for a long time.

The Compound Effect is the ripple effect you get as a consequence of the choices you make.

Compounding, in all ways, is a very powerful force. Long-term outlooks and long-term commitments are the easiest way to outperform other people.
