The Marginal Effect as Seen Through the Eyes of Math and Science...

Hi, fellow Steemians!

Most of us are usually under the impression that in order to achieve great things, we have to go through great lengths.

That is a sensationalized idea of how we should be prepared to pay the price for the things that we want. While that is true, one should not forget the importance of the Marginal Effect and how it can supposedly change your life in the long-term commitment.

In one of our previous posts, we talked about the Marginal Effect as seen through the eyes of philosophy.

The idea that for making great change in your life, you do not necessarily have to go through great lengths. If you decide to lose 50 pounds, do not think of your goal as losing 50 pounds. Your goal is actually losing 5 pounds every week in a timeframe of 10 weeks.

Consistency and determination always work to your best interest. Imagine that you are trying to make a habit out of reading books.

If you read 5 pages a day, you will read 150 pages a month, and that means you can finish an average book in two to three months.

Now if you decide, just for the hell of the argument, to study 7 pages a day instead of 5 (which would mean dedicating a few more minutes), you will study 210 pages a month, and you will be able to finish the same book in less than two months.

What happens when you decide to read 2 more pages every day? Absolutely nothing. But if you zoom out and look out your goal from above, you will have read 210 pages instead of 150, and that is a great difference.

The Marginal Effect is against the idea of immediate effect and instant gratification. It needs dedication and patience. You need to be able to see the bigger picture, while focusing your energy to improve your routine in small ways.

Studying a new language for 10 minutes everyday (which is a laughable amount!) will not give you immediate results, but if you study a new language for 10 minutes for a year, you will have spent 5 hours every month becoming more and more fluent in it.

The same formula can be applied to any endeavor. It is an indication that even science and math favor the Marginal Effect and how it can effectively improve your life.

The beauty of the Marginal Effect is that it is not even hard to do. All you have to decide is to merely dedicate a specific amount of time everyday practicing a new habit or learning a new thing, and see the results in the long-term.

There is a famous rule amongst successful people which is known as the Five Hour rule.

It basically indicates that if you want to achieve something, or learn how to do something, or generally bring a new habit or capability to your array of qualifications in life, all you need to do is spend an hour every day of the week (excluding the weekend) to practice them.

After a couple of months, you will be adequately versed in the field of your choosing using the Marginal Effect.

Practice the Marginal Effect and put it to use in your daily life.

You will not live to regret this decision and will actually see the improvements with your own eyes!
