"Little by little I will drive them out before you, until you have increased enough to take possession of the land." - Exodus 23:30

The Law of Accumulation
Brian Tracy calls this principle of improving Little by Little the Law of Accumulation, or the Principle of Incremental Improvement. He says, "It is the primary reason for all great success stories. By the yard, its hard. But inch by inch, anythings a cinch!"

How Do You Make it Work for You?
First, do more than is required. By taking on more responsibility at work, home, or church, you increase your value. When you increase your value, then, the financial and other rewards will automatically fill the gap between what you are receiving versus what you are providing. Any vacuum that is created in this world will be filled. Since you are creating a value vacuum, it will be filled with things that are valuable to you.

Second, use your unique talents. How often do you see someone with incredible talent toiling away at something they are not good at? I personally know someone who could sell virtually anyone anything. However, he is in position of managing people, which is not only not a strength of his but a definite weakness. When I see him, I can see the stress written all over his face. If he would only tap into his innate sales ability, he would be much happier and more successful. In the parable of the talents in the New Testament, Jesus says, "Oh good and faithful servant, you have been faithful over small things. I will make you master over large things."

Finally, take small steps every day to improve your capability. Stephen Covey calls this principle Sharpening the Saw. No World Class Runner starts out running Marathons. In fact, it takes years of training to even run a Marathon, much less compete for a top spot. So, how do they do it? They train a little every day and stretch themselves to do more. If you improved in your current job, relationships, or other interests by just 1 percent a week; you would be over 50% more productive in just one year. Isn't 1% achievable? This is how you make time work for you instead of against you.

By combining the power of increased activity in areas that you have an ability that you have honed to perfection, you will experience Overwhelming Success. Continuous improvement makes success inevitable.
