This book however is a rarity and potentially one of the best books I have ever read.
Jeff Olson writes this book in a succinct, clear and down to Earth way. He's obviously a millionaire but what I particular like about this book is that he does not shove it down your throat ever 2 lines.
So what is The Slight Edge? The premise of the book is simple: There is an invisible force that is evoked with every single decision and action that we take, good or bad, big or small. This force is never in neutral so if we constantly make loads of good decisions daily, this will lead us to wealth, happiness and success in our lives or if we make loads of minor errors in our daily routines, given enough time, this will compound into financial meltdown, potentially poor health and general misery.
Common sense so far right? But not common practice! What Jeff Olson argues is that societies around the world have been bamboozled into thinking that success is this instantaneous, miraculous, mystical event that only happens to a select few lucky people but when you really take a closer a look at people whom are successful and stay successful, it's the many, many tiny disciplines that they have fostered in their daily routine that have compounded over time to get them to top and vice-versa for tragic failures.Read more ›
After saying all through the book that the slight edge is about easy things you can do almost without noticing them which will add up over time, at the end he comes up with a list of 7 areas to which you should apply the slight edge every day - if you were to do all these, it would take up half your day every day, which seems fairly silly.
So a good fundamental idea, and a good read, but personally I wouldn't follow his detailed instructions, which just seem to have been put in as filler anyway.
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.
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.
