I am currently working on a project memorizing 6,000 pieces of information….

Some days I get nothing done…

Other days 50 pieces of data…

Other days 300 pieces of data…

But really my goal is to do SOMETHING every day. Even if it is a small amount. Because small things add up. (Side note – I do believe a day for just total rest is of value).

Don’t believe small things add up. Check this out. A penny that doubles every day…

Day 1: $.01
Day 2: $.02
Day 3: $.04
Day 4: $.08
Day 5: $.16
Day 6: $.32
Day 7: $.64
Day 8: $1.28
Day 9: $2.56
Day 10: $5.12
Day 11: $10.24
Day 12: $20.48
Day 13: $40.96
Day 14: $81.92
Day 15: $163.84
Day 16: $327.68
Day 17: $655.36
Day 18: $1,310.72
Day 19: $2,621.44
Day 20: $5,242.88
Day 21: $10,485.76
Day 22: $20,971.52
Day 23: $41,943.04
Day 24: $83,886.08
Day 25: $167,772.16
Day 26: $335,544.32
Day 27: $671,088.64
Day 28: $1,342,177.28
Day 29: $2,684,354.56
Day 30: $5,368,709.12

If you ask most people, ‘Would you rather me give you $10,000 or a penny and every day for a month it doubles?’ Don’t you think most would take the $10,000. Why? Because of the lack of understanding that small things can build SERIOUS momentum! This penny doubling would give you over $5 million in just 30 days!!

As I work on my memory project and you work on whatever you are working on….make SOME progress (even a little) today. Small things add up…and might even make you a millionaire 🙂

    So if you want to memorize 6000 pieces of information, it would take about 13/14 days when you double the number of pieces you remember every day 🙂

    Might make it ‘interesting’ to say the least the last couple of days.

    What are you memorizing?

    I started last week to do a little memorizing experiment myself… memorizing the phone numbers I have stored in my phone.

      Well, I will be announcing my project very soon I promise 🙂

      I like your project of memorizing phone numbers!

      keep it up!
