The Power of the 1% Principle

Today’s episode is all about the 1% principle. This principle is about ridding ourselves of the notion of perfectionism and Mount Everest-sized goals. Many of us fall into the trap of setting such large goals that we cannot even fathom a way to actually achieve them. Adi offers advice, originally from his most recent weekly chat on the IGNTD Recovery Program, on how you can use the 1% principle in your life to create small, bite-sized steps to fully achieve your larger goal.
