    Best Words of Advice

    “Most people love to talk about success (and life in general) as an event. But the truth is that most of the significant things in life aren’t stand-alone events, but rather the sum of all the moments when we chose to do things 1 percent better or 1 percent worse. Aggregating these marginal gains makes a difference.”  - James Clear
