Book review: The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy
Another day, another book review. I recently can’t stop listening to audiobooks and doing little DIY things around the house. So after reading “The Effective Executive” by Peter F. Drucker I decided to pick up another classic equally frequently recommended within productivity-oriented circles, “The Compound Effect” by Darren Hardy.
The title speaks for itself. This book is about introducing minor changes to your life that, compounded after a while, produce a significant impact. It is also about bad habits or duties that we like to neglect and their long-term effect on our lives. This book is an excellent read for everyone seeking a motivational kick to make a change. It doesn’t matter if your goal is to improve your relationship, financial situation or level of your fitness.
What’s easy to do, is also easy not to do.
The author’s regime sometimes goes too far to my taste. I don’t want to schedule relationship reviews with my partner weekly or judge people I surround with by their bank account balance. I love the idea of documenting things that I am grateful for every day tho. Some of the habit-forming practices recommended by this book are so good.
Read it, good one 📕
