KEY TAKEAWAYS

Minor adjustments to a person’s life, when practiced consistently over time, can have a longer lasting effect on quality of life than a major change that lasts only a brief period. The effects can be negative or positive.

To experience long term change from the Compound Effect, people must adopt the attitudes of gratitude, positivity about qualities of the self, and personal responsibility for everything that happens.
