Dream About LifeDream About LifeHOW THE SLIGHT EDGE CHANGED MY LIFE OVERNIGHTBefore I knew about the slight edge, everything I did was motivated by painand pleasure. If a task meant more pain than pleasure, I would simply avoiddoing it and move on to something else. This is how I lived for many years untilI was introduced to the concept of “the slight edge.”So what exactly is this “slight edge” and can it help you too?You Reap What You Sow“Don’t judge each day by the harvest youreap but by the seeds that you plant.” –Robert Louis StevensonThe slight edge is nothing more than asimple, yet powerful philosophy. It’s a wayto change the small and seeminglymeaningless decisions you make every day in such a way that it affects yourentire attitude towards life.The philosophy behind the slight edge is to do all the tiny things that appear tobe inconsequential, but have a tremendous impact when done consistently overtime.

They avoid doing thesimple things that they know they can/should do. They avoid these “easy todo” things because they don’t see the immediate benefit and conclude that it’s“meaningless to do”. However, the slight edge tells us that every decision wemake matters and it matter a lot. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, butevery decision when compounded over time, either propels you up or down,closer or further from success.Until I learned about the slight edge, I was avoiding all the small tasks which Ithought were a “waste of time.’ I had no idea that all these tiny decisions wereactually putting me on the “negative edge.” I only realized that I wasn’t whereI wanted to be, but couldn’t understand how I got there.
