851: Groundhog Day Meets Deathloop

In Groundhog Day (1993), Bill Murray plays a hapless weather man reliving the same day over and over again until he gets it right.

In Deathloop (2021), Colt Vaugn is also reliving the same day … until he can kill seven evil geniuses and ‘break the loop’. (To clarify, this is a video game I’m playing.)

In both cases, living the same 24 hours again and again gives the characters the chance to learn, improve and win.

What seemed impossible eventually becomes routine.

The best real world example of this in my life may be learning to drive.

The point, of course, is that incremental improvements make a huge difference to our lives if they are compounded.

Paul Akers, the author of 2 Second Lean, asks his team to make one improvement every day … something that will save them 2 seconds tomorrow.

This morning, I made my 2 second improvement.
