Many people dream of an extraordinary life, but too often end up settling for a mediocre one. No matter where you are in life—whether you’re struggling to overcome a major setback or ready to move to new heights—The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod provides you with a simple, proven method to improve your life and achieve all your dreams and goals.
The main (and only) concept in this book is the compound effect of your habits and choices, something the author, Jeff Olson, calls the Slight Edge. Everything you do, every decision you make, every action and inaction has a slight positive or negative impact on the final outcome. According to the author, there’s no neutral here, meaning you have to pick one or the other.
