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.
I have shared with my friends what I am doing and how I am working on changing my life. This Book is at the top of my positive transformation along with my health. I will purchase this book for my daughter and her friends that are in college or starting as a Freshmen in college. I will highly recommend that my colleagues purchase and share this book with their loved ones and friends!!
An amazing book and I am excited to see as I move forward the positive changes to my life and my own ripple effect.
