    Transform Your Life by Getting 1 Percent Better Each Day

    Transform Your Life by Getting 1 Percent Better Each Day

    https://deanbokhari.com/marginal-gains/ | Rerun: EP279. "Marginal Gains" | 
    Marginal Gains What if I told you that you could transform your entire life if you decided to get just 1% better in each of the areas that matter to you?
    In 2003, a man named David Brailsford was hired to help a struggling British Cycling team. At the time, British Cycling was weak. They hadn’t won a single Olympic Gold medal since 1908. And no British cyclist had ever won the Tour de France. Dave Brailsford was tasked with changing that. He had an interesting approach to success, known as the “‘Marginal Gains” philosophy, also called the “1% Factor.”
    His method was simple and straight-forward: Push the team to get 1% better each day.
    Brailsford’s concept was, that if you broke down every single thing you could think of that goes into cycling—and improved it by just 1%— you’d gain a significant increase when you put them all together.
    Basically, he was applying the compound effect.
    Brailsford looked at every little thing he could possibly improve upon in order to create a winning team.
    He measured and monitored all of the traditional stats of his athletes, like a cyclists’ power output, physical fitness and nutrition. He targeted specific weaknesses on the team and sought to improve upon them bit-by-bit.
    But Brailsford also looked at improving often-overlooked areas, and implemented tiny tactics to help them get the edge:
    They had the seats redesigned for extra comfort and stability They put rubbing alcohol on the tires for better grip They experimented with different racing suits for better aerodynamics They tested various massage gels for better muscle recovery They tested electrically heated shorts He trained his cyclists on the phycological aspect of success They even used better pillows in order to optimize their sleep All-in-all, it was a much more holistic approach to success. The changes they made were tiny, but over time, compounded to make a significant impact.
    From 2007 to 2017, the British Cycling team won 178 world championships, and 66 Olympic gold medals.
    In 2010, as the general manager of the British-based professional cycling team, Team Sky (now known as Team Ineos), Brailsford set a goal to take his cycling team to a winning position in the Tour de France in the next 5 years.
    He implemented his “Marginal Gains” principle and began working to improve every area of his cycling team by 1%… And they took home a gold medal at the Tour De France within 3 years.
    By 2018, they’d gone on to take home 6 Tour de France victories.
    That’s an incredible improvement, to say the least.
    How Marginal Gains can Transform Your Life. If you can get just 1% better each day for a single year, you’ll end up thirty-seven times better by the same time next year.
    This also works in the opposite direction: if you get 1% worse each day for a single year, you’ll decline down to nearly zero.
    Focus on making small improvements each day, over time those small improvements will equate to massive change.
    For example, let’s say you want to lose weight and get in shape. Instead of focusing on losing 50 lbs, concentrate on working out for just 30 minutes three times a week for 30 days. Over time you will begin to see changes in your body. Thirty minutes a day, three times a week for 52 weeks is 4,680 minutes worth of exercise.
    If you can find a way to improve each of the major areas of your life by just 1% every day, beginning today, you will have transformed your life completely by this time next year.
    Unfortunately, most people apply the exact opposite approach: they’ll use short spurts of motivation to work themselves into burnout—before losing steam and giving up before they see any progress at all…
    Don’t let that be you.
    Imagine what your life would look like a year from now if you decided to app
