“Habits are the compound interest of self-improvement. The same way that money multiplies through compound interest, the effects of your habits multiply as you repeat them. They seem to make little difference on any given day and yet the impact they deliver over the months and years can be enormous. It is only looking back two, five, or perhaps ten years later that the value of good habits and the cost of bad ones becomes strikingly apparent.” -Peggy quoting James Clear from his book Atomic Habits.
