Tipping the Scale

If you were to gain a cent you wouldn’t consider yourself rich. If you were to continue increasing in value by a single cent, you probably wouldn’t be as excited as if you were given a briefcases full of $100 notes. However, if you continuously gain a cent, there will come a time, a moment when that single cent moves you from whatever you were to very rich.

-Self-stylised paraphrase from Atomic Habits’ by James Clear

Habit-forming isn’t glamorous. It may feel similar to gaining wealth at the rate of a cent at a time, sometimes even less. The one that reaps the reward is the one who accepts that their ‘wealth’ will come a cent at a time.

Will you be that person? Will you stick to it long enough to tip the scale?
