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.
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.
So after knowing how empowering the book was for me, I buy this book in HARDBACK, and share it with special people. I buy the hardback with hopes they will continue to read it and hopefully it will not fall apart like my paperback.
It's been just over a year since I read this book and I thought I would give an update. Something about this book and the way that it was written connected with me differently that any other "success/self-help" book I'd ever read before. I've been reading similar books for the past 15 years. I usually see a slight difference after having read a book and then I end up back where I was.
NOT THIS TIME.
Since having read this book (within 1 year) I've started my own company and nearly tripled my income doing something I find challenging and I love to do. I'm now making 6 figures and I have no intention of stopping there. I started watching my diet and gym routines closer after reading this book and now I'm nearly 37 yrs old and I'm in the best shape of my life. My marriage has never been better and the relationship with my 4 children is probably the best it's ever been as well.
Simply stated that after reading this book I began to believe again that the small things I do every day really did make a difference. Even though I couldn't see it, there was a difference - good or bad. I had lost that understanding somewhere along the line with the ups and downs of life. Some people might get discouraged that the small things can make such a big difference, but I found it to be incredibly empowering. All of the sudden life became 'doable" again. I've read and re-read this book 3 times, bought the audio and I'm on my 4th time reading it. I've also completed nearly 30 other books in this area. While I've found some real "gems" none of them have had the impact on me that this one has. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone that wants or is even considering ways to improve their life.
"By small and simple things, great things are brought to pass."
