Many of the most significant investments are small but continuous ones. Let’s say I want to write a book. I could take a couple of months off at work and try to write it entirely, but a much less risky approach might be to take a couple of hours a week and regularly move toward the target. If you enjoy the process, there’s a likelihood you’ll even overachieve what you set for yourself. Showing up at the gym once a week might not be as effective as going every day, but it beats not going at all.
