1 Percent IMPROVEMENT

I recently released part two of my 1 percent improvement concept, you can view it below. As I edited this YouTube video, I realised that there is a part three that is so fundamental that I need to insert it in here until I record the third instalment of the series

Unfortunately, when I talk about 1 percent improvement, some people think it’s about ‘doing stuff’, but that’s not really the point. We all ‘do stuff’ every day. 1 percent improvement is about IMPROVING something every day. Like these examples…

Examples of 1 percent improvement:

  • A colleague sent me a scanned image of a Yellow Pages ad today, labeled img000456.jpg. By NOT labeling the file “YellowPageAd2008.jpg” [or something similar] he’s going to potentially have trouble finding it in 1, 2, 3 or 5 years from now. If he labeled THAT file and from NOW ON labels ALL his scanned images with searchable text words, THAT would be his 1% for today.
  • I have people contribute content for my blogs that I then edit and publish. I instructed one of the contributors to place the blog post text directly in WordPress and just not publish it so that we could eliminate at least one e-mail correspondence since I check my blogs on a daily basis. I know it’s just one e-mail, but if I can save myself 10 e-mails a day, that’s easily 5 to 10 minutes/day = 1 hour saved per week. It’s all about improving something, 1% at a time.
  • I teach our Platinum Members how to write Killer copy for their ads, e-mails, brochures via a one-day workshop as part of the Killer Kopywriting System™ that I developed. One of the 1% strategies I teach them is to use each e-mail subject line as a KILLER HEADLINE, which gives them DOZENS of opportunities/day to PRACTICE and hone their craft. Less than a handful still do it. How do I know? I know when they send me e-mails… It’s one of my 1% improvement mechanisms I created to KNOW with no effort if they are doing it!

So there you have it – it’s not about ‘doing stuff’, but IMPROVING the stuff that you are doing, 1 percent at a time. When you give it time to compound, you’ll be amazed at how EFFORTLESS it is to create results that astonish and amaze others…

Onward and upward!

  • Hi Marc,

    I came across this AMAZING article this morning, and wanted to share it with your members.

    This particular one is important because:
    -It’s copied from one industry to another,
    -It shows that sometimes solutions can be SO obvious that they can be be missed or ignored,
    -The cost of implementing a one-percent solution could be minimal and the impact HUGE !

    Thanks,

  • I totally agree and thanks for sharing!

    Of course you know by now that WHILE READING this article, ask yourself “What checklists should I be using for work, exercise/sport, investments, personal planning?

    In all our programs, we INCLUDE all the checklist and templates people need to ‘tick all the boxes’…

  • Hi Marc.

    I understand the math behind 1%, but I am struggling to picture how it would manifest itself.

    Is it as simple as having a goal (i.e. become an expert on a subject) and then fulfilling small, daily tasks to accomplish that goal?

    Can you provide an example of how you or someone you know applied the 1% rule and what was the result?

    I am looking forward to your reply. Thank-you.

  • Tanari,
    Please watch all three 1 Percent Improvement videos for the FULL explanation.

    THOUSANDS of people have applied this concept to produce results like buy or create a website from scratch and build it into an asset that is worth $50,000 in one year.

    Another person increased their online sales 1% at a time from $200/month to $4,000/month, bit-by-bit.

    I increased the number of views to my YouTube videos from 0 to 100,000 total views in about 12 months, fine tuning my strategies 1% at a time.

    Students use the strategies in my study book

    http://www.Get-Better-Grades.com

    To go from Cs and Ds to Bs and As in ONE semester by applying the 1 percent concept EVERY DAY to improve their study habits.

    Others have bought my Speed Reading Video Program

    http://www.SpeedReadingVideo.com

    and started at 150 words per minute to QUADRUPLE it to 600 words per minute in less than one month – focusing on 1 percent improvement each and every time they read something.

    It’s all about the mindset – the Exponential Mindset

    I hope this helps – you sure seem excited by the possibilities that are there for you. Pick one of my programs and see what happens when you apply the 1 percent improvement doctrine!

    Onward and upward!
