There has been much content written about establishing goals during the New Year. Much of the content revolves around personal finance, health, and exercise. Speaking from personal experience, oftentimes, these goals do not make it into the new year, mostly because they have never been measurable or a part of my subconscious routine, too often falling to the wayside. It wasn’t until I read, The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy that I gained a better awareness and ability to form habits that stayed with me. According to Hardy, the success of forming habits that stick is simply performing small compounding actions over a long period of time, quite literally building habits. This idea of compounding can be related to any area of interest, done gradually over time, allowing habits to form and stick. The idea of compounding can most definitely be applied to orthopedic health, wellness, and pain-free longevity if those are your goals.
