Turning Simple Disciplines Into Massive Success Happiness I first read it, then bought it for my husband, then sent it to my best friends as a neaw years book it the same as a new year s card but with a book they both loved it.
Simple, effective, never boring Each time I read it I learn how to apply what the author says.

Very inspiring and full of easy to implement tips The book gives a very simple yet profound approach to developing positive life habits Problem is, it has the same material and anecdotes as Darren Hardy s The Compound Effect Really, gentlemen Very inspiring and full of easy to implement tips The book gives a very simple yet profound approach to developing positive life habits Problem is, it has the same material and anecdotes as Darren Hardy s The Compound Effect Really, gentlemen Life changing A book to read before reading any other personnal development book So simple and inspiring, I wish I read it sooner I purchased for my mom, dad and fianc For anyone struggling with bad habits, wanting the secret of success, this is it My life will never be the same.
UPDATE 72 days after reading this book I ve accomplished things that were on my to do list for 4 years It really gave me a kick in the pants and helped me see how I was wasting each day I highly recommend this book for people who have struggled with procrastination or I ll do it tomorrow syndrome.
I have to agree with the few reviews that point out how long winded this book is Let me save you some money and summarize for you There is no magic bullet Success is achieved by repeating small disciplines and taking small, ever increasing steps.
The basic message and practical instruction in this book could have been condensed into about 10 pages and have been no less powerful Instead every chapter is basically a repetition of the same thing, with endless anecdotes about well known and not so well known people and how they have applied the principles I managed to read diligently up to about chapter 5, when I finally caught on that I was being sold the same thing in different words or from a slightly different angle in just about every chapter.
Hint if you have read watched anything by the likes of Jim Rohn or Brian Tracy, this book will offer you nothing new.
Moral of the story if you want to change your life, start today It starts with one pushup that becomes two tomorrow One dollar invested instead of spent on nonsense One healthy meal instead of the junk you usually eat Show up, repeat and grow.
That s the Slight Edge Good luck.
Save yourself the time and the money, there is nothing life changing here Every other self help book says these things in 2 chapters what took Jeff a whole book It is endlessly repetitive, all he really says is work hard and getting good at something takes a long time Mastery by Robert Greene is a much better book to learn that same lesson.
He just uses the words Slight edge to justify why only 5% people are successful without every quantifying or caring to elaborate on what exactly he means by slight edge If you are at absolute rock bottom of your life and have never read a self help book then yes this book might have some value for you but even then there are better contenders which bang for your time and money.
this was required reading for a conference that I recently attendedI highly recommend itsent a copy to my daughter, who recently graduated from collegeit really makes the case for the proposition that it s the little things that you do every day that make a differenceover time, the little things add upthese things are just as easy NOT to do as they are to do so just do themtakes focus off of seeing immediate and huge results, which, when not seen, often leads to people giving upkeeps focus on doing the little things each and every day with the mindset that slow and steady wins the race I read this book 3 years ago and without me even knowing it, it set me on a path of personal growth and exploration that I could have never dreamed of As a result of reading this book, I committed to reading 10 pages of a good book every day From there, other little changes started flowing.
Now, 3 years later, I ve read or listened to over 40 great books, transformed the relationships I have with my friends and family, and has even inspired me to create my own Rise Up movement to pay it forward.
So many people I ve shared this book with tell me it s too repetitive, he just says the same thing again and again That may be true, yet if you read it the way I did, one day, one chapter at a time, you will find that there s than just knowledge in this book Used that way it is a catalyst for action.
One final note, this book came to me as a result of a friend giving it to me He read it and thought it would be helpful for me My transformation is the ripple effect of another man s transformation That, and the slight edge change over the pastcouple3 years is enough of proof for me to know the power of this message and stick with it for the rest of my life I m 23 now I got a long way to go.
