The irony of chasing big wins is just how little success they bring you.
Hitting the ball out of the park is a beautiful dream, but a poor strategy.
The odds are stacked against you.
And, yet, we all keep playing the same game.
Day after day. Month after month. Year after year.
With the same result.
A better strategy that would bring us all more success, and I would argue, provide us with more happiness is this:
Fall in love with incremental gain.
The small win.
If pursued relentlessly, religiously and obsessively each day, this is a big idea.
1% better today than yesterday adds up.
If you compound the change, that comes to 3800% a year.
Or 38 times better than you were at the start.
So the key question to keep asking here is:
How do I get better today than yesterday?
If you ask this today, you will always have a tomorrow.
