One Won’t Hurt

I’m sure we’ve all used or heard this expression. I know I’ve definitely used it to justify:

  • having a cake
  • having a biscuit (even though I usually only eat those in twos)
  • having a glass of wine
  • not tracking a meal or snack
  • missing a workout

And it’s true. One won’t hurt. But if you’re having ‘one’ every day, eventually this adds up and has an impact. Darren Hardy talks more about this in his book ‘The Compund Effect’.

…decisions shape your destiny. Little, everyday decisions will take you either to the life you desire or to disaster by default.

The Compound Effect, Darren Hardy

I try to keep this principle at the forefront of my mind whenever I’m faced with making a decision about what to eat or whether to exercise or not. I ask myself a simple question,

“Will doing this take me closer to or further away from where I want to be?”
