Darren Hardy's book, The Compound Effect, reveals a key principle for authors: Every little step you take over time culminates into major movement.
- If you write just 100 words a day, you'll have a 36,000 word book in one year.
- If you make one networking connection a day, by December 31, you'll have hundreds of people on your side.
- If you wake one hour early, you'll gain 7 hours to write every week.
Momentum starts by doing the little things. That's why we've begun including a challenge in each newsletter ... because if you do one small thing each time we enter your inbox, soon your platform will have major momentum!
