Fun fact! Did you know that after December 21rst (winter solstice) we have been receiving about two minutes more of sunshine a day? Each day we'll enjoy another minute or two of sunshine than the preceding day. Before we know it, we'll be experiencing longer days again.
When I first learned of this extra 2 minutes of sunshine a day, it made me think of a success principle that is out here changing lives.
I've spoken about this principle several times on here before. It's the Compound Effect. I'm bringing up the topic again because:
- It's the New Year and the Compound Effect is an annual tradition here.
- I recently received a message from someone who applied the principles of the Compound Effect to change her life.
Check out this testimonial I received the other day via an Instagram direct message.
Compound Effecter launched a successful business and transitioned from her full-time job. This technique actually works! Best of all, the process seems so effortless.
Let's use this 2 minutes of extra sunshine per day as a trigger to apply the Compound Effect in a small way, each and every day. What if you were to jump rope for 2 minutes today? Or applied 2 minutes of focused attention towards the things on your vision board. Two minutes may seem not much, but if you add an additional 2 minutes the next day and continue on with this pattern, you'll multiply your results.
I've decided to apply my two minutes towards building more muscle tone. Just a few squats, and lunges here and there. But I'll build on my activities each day.
I also have a few bigger goals for the year ahead. I'm figuring out which Compound Effect Activities need to take place on a regular basis to ensure my goals are achieved. This is absolutely critical. At 6:00 pm every day, I take a look at the sky. That's when I realize that I can still see glimpses of sunlight and that mother nature is engaged in the principles of the compound effect. This is my reminder (trigger) not to let a day go by without engaging in some type of small, consistent action.
