[BOOK REVIEW] The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson

Over the last week The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson has been my bedtime reading.  It's the third time I've read the book over the last few years.

What I love most about the book is the simplicity of how the author explains why only 5% of people succeed in achieving truly fulfilling lives while 95% of people end up just 'muddling though' their years here on Earth.

The compound effects of tiny disciplines enacted every day over a long period of time make all the difference.  It's why I try to save money every month, exercise at least every second day, and make an effort to write down some new ideas in my journal several times each week.

Heart attacks don't happen because you ate poorly one day. They happen because you eat poorly every day for decades.  This is the 'downside' of the slight edge.  Unfortunately, it's the path that most people take, just being lazy and not doing the little things that make all the difference.

I highly recommend you pick up a copy if you don't own it already.
