The Slight Edge

Turning Simple Disciplines into Massive Success and Happiness
by Jeff Olson | 280 pages

Jeff Olson is a down-to-earth, super practical (and successful) guy who believes in the power of turning simple disciplines into massive success. He calls that power “The Slight Edge.” In the Note, we’ll explore Big Ideas ranging from the anti-quantum leap and making course corrections to the habits of a slight edge master and how to create optimal plans.


“That’s the only reason our lives follow that roller coaster. It’s that simple. As soon as we get away from failure and up past the line of survival, we quit doing the things that got us there.

You know what that means? It means you already know how to do everything it takes to make you an outrageous success. That’s how you’ve survived up to this point. And if you can survive, then you can succeed. You don’t need to do some brilliant, impossible thing. You don’t need to learn some insanely difficult skills, or have some genius-level brainstorm of an innovative idea. All you have to do is keep doing the things that got you this far.

Which is exactly what 99.9 percent of people don’t do.

What those things are, why most people don’t do them, and how you can live an outrageously happy and successful life by doing them, is what this book is all about.”

~ Jeff Olson from The Slight Edge

Imagine throwing Darren Hardy’s The Compound Effect + George Leonard’s Mastery + James Allen’s As a Man Thinketh + Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich into a blender.

You’d basically get this fun, empowering book! :)

Jeff Olson is a down-to-earth, super practical (and successful) guy who believes in the power of turning simple disciplines into massive success. He calls that power “The Slight Edge.”

In essence: You know those little things you know are good for you? Yah, those. They are, as Jeff says, “Easy to do. And easy not to do.” Well, if you want to experience massive success via The Slight Edge, you need to do those little things consistently. Day in and day out. Period.

The book is packed with Big Ideas on how we can integrate The Slight Edge into our lives on a consistent basis. If you like the Note, I think you’ll love the book. (Get a copy here!)

For now, I’m excited to share some of my favorite Big Ideas so let’s jump straight in!
