Things we do or say today may not appear to make much difference in the short or even medium term but can be critical in determining whether or not we ultimately achieve what we want in the long term. Delaying important decisions and always choosing the easy (but not necessarily best) route can also have a significant impact on our lives.
I was reminded of this at a seminar in Sydney recently. It prompted me to re-read a book that I thoroughly recommend: The compound effect by Darren Hardy. A summary is provided at Success magazine‘s website.
We often assume that our life is influenced mostly by the big decisions that we make – the fork in the road or the paths that diverge in a wood. But it may actually be the small everyday seemingly insignificant decisions that we make (or don’t make) that have a greater impact on our future – whether we like it or not.
