Prevent Marginal Thinking.
Successful people consistently make good decisions. The theory states they do a great job of following their own rules 100% of the time, not 98% of the time. If you break your rule “just this once” because it’s “ok in your mind” – then you’re thinking marginally.
– Don’t cut corners and don’t break your personal rules.
– Apply this to your routines at home and work.
– Have an accountability partner to act as your training wheels.
– Try sticking with your rules, at 100%, for 30 days.
Afterward, compare the quality of your decisions.
