This week, I’ve been struck by the realization of how incremental effort and change can add up to a big result. For the past two years, I’ve had ongoing issues with my right knee and have never put in the effort to address the issue. I went to physio for a bit, but never kept up my exercises. I’ve done yoga, but never more than once a week at the most. Considering my Mom is a physiotherapist, I really should know better! Two weeks ago, CF encouraged me to pick up my daily exercise routine, and for the past two weeks, I’ve stuck with it. I’ve incorporated some of my old physio exercises and yoga stretches to develop a 15 minute routine every day. I really didn’t think that such a short amount of time could have such a big impact, but today I’m going off to play soccer and for the first time in years feel like I can actually move and compete to the best of my ability. Strenuous activity like soccer will really test the knee, but I’m hopeful that the progress I’ve made is real.
The same can be applied to personal finance. Small, daily changes can add up over time. This is the philosophy we live by and thus far has served us well.
