Hey guys. Today I wanted to talk to you about a book I read a few years ago called The Slight Edge. What this basically is, it’s about how all the small things add up. So, with your exercise routine, going on that walk every day over the year and the result you get at the end of that. It’s also about how the things that are easy to do are important because, as well as being easy to do, they’re also easy not to do.
So, again using that walk as an example, if you decide to go for that walk on one particular morning, is it going to make that much of a difference? Look, probably not, you’re going to burn a few calories, you’ll feel better after it, but you’re not going drop five kilos just by going for one walk. At the same time, is it going matter if you don’t go on that walk? Again, not really. You might wake up feeling a little bit annoyed at yourself after sleeping instead of getting up and going for the walk, but at that time, it’s not really going to matter that much. Over say a year, though, if you were to go for that walk every morning, well, yeah, you’re going notice a difference. You might have lost that five kilos, just from doing that. If you don’t go for that walk every morning, well then, that’s the five kilos that you’re not going to lose. That’s sort of what this whole book is about, how all the little things all add up. And, with health and fitness goals, that’s basically how I like to look at everything. You don’t get the end result straight away, the result is from a whole heap of little actions all building up and coming together at the end!
