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.
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.
What The Slight Edge teaches is easy to undervalue and overlook because of its simplicity...things that are easy to do AND just as easy NOT to do. But if you do these simple Slight Edge things consistently, with time as your ally, you will experience great success.
The book is a great guide for someone who need to understand what a plan is. More concrete examples (and fewer testimonials) would have made this book outstanding.
