With endless examples to make the point, it really drives home the reality of making changes in life. Those who criticise the book's repetition miss the author's proof of concept: repetition causes an outcome. And the outcome here is understanding a strong, deceptively simple strategy that causes change. Plainly written, and revealing a truth in plain sight, this is a good book for those prepared to work on themselves with honesty.
I was recommended The Slight Edge by someone I connected with on Facebook, and it has been the ultimate game changer for me.
The best way to describe this book is that is was the missing piece of the puzzle which brought everything I had read so fat to a point where it all made sense and could be applied effectively through The Slight Edge.
Refreshing as change is not presented as a specific set of predetermined steps to achieve success on your life path. Instead it describes exactly what is says on the cover, slight positive adjustments made over time, facilitates change; the repetition of this theme was not overly burdensome as it is integral to the message. Small baby steps repeated over time effects change.
My biggest issue, and reason for missing star, was that the premise and diagram of 5% achieving and 95% not achieving, was great on first pass, but did not fully stand-up on my finicky reflection. The graph would not be symmetric - but I do understand why it is shown the way, as it is a great visual aid. Further while I agree to the general premise that everything is curved, and there are few straight lines on your life path, if I have doughnut (95% zone) but then blitz out a 90min workout (5% zone) I would zig-zag my way along my life path and conceivably stay neutral – forever? And if financial compound interest really did work for us John Dow then we would need any book?
All that said, I did really love the book.
I learnt how powerful our habits really are and how I need to make the easy choices everyday to take a step towards my goal, I learnt to give it time (like the Grand Canyon took time to create) I learnt the key story of the tortoise and Rabbit - slow and STEADY wins the race.
Now I no longer over work myself, I have created 2 new habits every couple of weeks, I have seen my confidence grow and I have so much excitement knowing that just by staying on the slight edge of keeping my new good habits, my success is inevitable.
MUST READ for everyone and yes I'll be raising my children on this philosophy :D
The beauty for me was turning the mundane tasks into positive or negative choices, rather than things you must do. You can not not do them if you like, but as long as you understand that it has negative effects.
I'm only a third of the way through the book and I felt absolutely compelled to review and thank the author as I have woken up this morning and decided to go play in a rugby tournament that all week I have been thinking of an excuse not to attend. It really is a 5 star, straight talking reality check.
Overall a powerful concept and rallying cry . Maintain the daily Slight Edge !
