## The REAL Magic Bullet

We grossly underestimate the power of compounding. I want to explain it with an example.

Two people are awarded money for working out. But with a slightly different kickers.

**Person A**

He’s offered $5000 at the end of every month. He will receive this **irrespective of how well he performs** in training.

### Person B

She’s offered $10 per week to workout. This amount increases by 10% at the end of every week. All she has to do is * show marginal progress* week on week.

**Let’s map out how much they would have at the end of each month**

At the end of Year-1 (Month-12), Person B looks like a stupid for letting go of ‘easy money’.

But wait.. the compounding magic is yet to kick-in…

**In** **Month-16,**

- Person B ($86,762) will make as much as Person-A ($80,000). Phew finally!

**In Month-17**

- Person B will make $127,000. That’s a whooping $40,000 more than Person A ($85,000)

And if she keeps going, at the end of **Year-2 (Month-24)**

- Person B will make a whooping
**$2.2 Million**averaging $1.1 Million/year - Compare this to Person A who will make $120,000 averaging $60,000/year.

Massive success are built on small, unsexy, and imperceptible everyday decisions.

What’s your excuse?
