“Sir David Brailsford, the architect of British cycling success in the 2012 Olympics, talks about ‘marginal incremental gains’. He points to the importance of working on improving a whole host of small things by a mere 1% margin.
So where are you 1% improvements going to be?
Our church was challenged to do 1% more praying on a Saturday evening, take fifteen minutes more out of the day to commit Sunday to God, and make 1% more smiles – it’s amazing what a smiling face does to someone’s sense of being welcomed! Finally, we were encouraged to eat 1% more food, as long as it was with someone else during the week somewhere.”
