3.0 out of 5 stars The Compound Effect February 8, 2011
By Turner
Format:Perfect Paperback
The Compound Effect will likely not go down as the next Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, but it is worth a quick read. I certainly question the reviewers who say they've read and have a library of hundreds of self-help books and this one replaces them all. Darren grew up with a Dad that pushed him, he succeeded and now runs a successful company that puts out loads of mostly helpful tidbits. This is written in a direct style. It is not elegant (like CS Lewis Mere Christianity, which is about values/paths/focus). This is more like reading...well...his magazine. Keep in mind that we humans have plenty of information (do you really not know that pizza and beer makes you fat and veggies make you thin yet?), but we need constant reminders. This book is a reminder.

I'm in finance and have read maybe 25 similar books (from Dalai Lama to Anthony Robbins)and I do give credit to the book for enlightening me on one thing. I knew that a penny compounded daily for a month was much more valuable than being given $10k. I did not ever apply the principle to my behaviour. I was always putting a marathon on the calendar and failing. Since reading the boook, I do yoga, weights, run--but just a little of one or the other each day. I made simple positive changes and am seeing them slowly but surely compound.

So, thanks Darren. Your book made a difference and I and my wife, 3 kids and others around me are better for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Decisions Add Up November 16, 2014
By Nick
Format:Kindle Edition
It's easy for us to think of small decisions as irrelevant to our long-term success. But, these little decisions really do add up over time. This is the basis of Darren Hardy's The Compound Effect, and it's just as simple as it sounds. It's important to start taking stock of your small decisions because they all lead to something much larger. This is, in essence, the compound effect that Hardy's talking about. It's very similar to making small financial decisions that ultimately add up. For instance, if you buy a $5 coffee every day or even just once a week, you might not think about the added compound effect of that purchase. Five dollars may not seem like a lot, but the compound effect is hundreds or even thousands of dollars a year spent on coffee. Now, imagine if you made equally foolhardy small decisions on a regular basis in your work and personal life.

The result wouldn't be positive. One small decision that I made recently was to pick up a book by the name of 21 Things You Should Give Up To Be Happy. This book is filled with numerous "small decisions" that you can make every day to make your life much happier and healthier. Deciding not to care about pleasing everyone you come into contact with is one of those small decisions that can improve your happiness. I have been using the philosophies in this book and in The Compound Effect over the last few months and I've been able to achieve actionable changes in my day-to-day life. I'm happier and more motivated than ever before. I really focus on the decisions I'm making each and every day, so that I can have net positive compound effect overall. I think a lot of people would certainly benefit from taking on a similar action plan.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Little Things Count! June 12, 2010
Format:Perfect Paperback
This book by Darren Hardy, publisher of Success magazine, shows you how seemingly insignificant changes can create huge differences in outcomes. That's what makes the strategies in his book so doable. You don't have to set an unreachable goal to be successful. Instead, you just need to keep doing the little things - even when the immediate results aren't apparent.

As Darren so clearly demonstrates, it's your habits and choices that make the difference. And, he shows you how understanding your "why-power" enables you to make the daily changes that yield massive results. Personally, I enjoyed learning about his own success habits too. Very impressive. I have a lot to learn from him!

To sum it all up: The little things you do add up to success - so do them. This easy-to-read book is motivational, filled with lots of "how to" advice and definitely worthwhile.

4.0 out of 5 stars Proven principles October 22, 2011
Format:Hardcover
Hardy's advice works. I know, because I have been doing the same things for a long time. For example, I listen to nonfiction audiobooks instead of mindless music produced by some semi-literate drug addict. As I went through each point, I saw my own life philosophy kicked back at me.

But one difference that jumped out at me is I'm not filthy rich. And I can tell you why that is. Hardy actively applied the compounding effect to relationships with successful people. I did this for a while and got astounding results, then stopped doing it. And the results also stopped. So I can testify that his formula works and I can also testify that you get the lack of results he predicts when you just don't apply it to a given area.

An amazing area where this plays out in my life is that, despite a serious immune deficiency, I have not been sick since 1971. That isn't because of luck, it's because of discipline. I made a conscious decision to drop out of the American disease culture and instead practice health care. By consistently doing behaviors that promote health and consistently not doing behaviors that promote disease, I have stayed healthy.

In addition to personal experience, I have seen this habit thing play out time and time again for other people. When they tell me their problems, I ask them what habits they have that either contribute to this kind of problem or that prevent this kind of problem. These are problems ranging from frequently not being able to find the car keys to having a string of failed marriages.

If you haven't read success books and are wanting to turn your life around, this book can help you get started. But I would recommend reading other, meatier books so that you can develop and maintain the momentum Mr. Hardy talks about.
