The Non-Zero Progress Principle
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“What is the non-zero progress principle?”
“It’s a brilliant little principle I know from Darius Foroux [<link] – one of my favorite people.
Do one thing every day that helps you move toward your most important goal.
It’s basically two principles into one:
Consistent Action – Consistent daily action compounds [<link; short read].
Efficient Action – Focus on the highest-leverage things, one at a time.”
“Weren’t you already doing that?”
“I was taking consistent action, but not efficient action. Darius’s principle helped me see the error of my ways.”
