Growth, change, and progress always happens internally before it ever manifests in an external way.
In fact, the distance between when real, true, systemic change takes place inside you, and when it becomes apparent to everyone else is gargantuan.
That’s how you get better though; winning one small internal battle at a time.
Victories over donuts, laziness, and the snooze button may seem tiny and insignificant. And they are when taken individually.
Things rarely happen in isolation though.
Each win you secure over weakness in whatever form is a deposit in an account that’s accruing interest.
Every time you say, “No,” to something you shouldn’t do, you make a deposit in the account. Those deposits are small at first, but blossom over time.
Compound interest is a beautiful thing, and it doesn’t apply to bank accounts only. It applies to every area of your life.
Invest in a handful of daily habits. Habits that seem small when taken in isolation, but yield massive results months, and years down the road.
