Letter to the editor: Getting one percent better every day - is that possible?
Last month we reported on the iconic speech entitled " The One-Percent Solution" by bestselling author Alan Weiss, in which he encourages his audience to aim to be better by simply improving their activities by just one percent every day. From a mathematical standpoint, your abilities would improve by 100% every 70 days. Imagine if you could build such a fast-acting advantage in your business. One of our readers, Mr. Rolshoven, shares his opinion about this solution:
Maybe you shouldn´t take the "1% approach" too literally. If someone was able to double their own abilities after 70 days they would have improved by 32-fold after one year. After two years they would have improved by 1,000-fold, and after four years their abilities would have improved by one million...
As wonderful as fairytales may be - perhaps you should simply take some time every day to become a little bit better in a certain area. For example, it is good to plan at least ten minutes for improving a certain ability every day.
