Marginal gains theory is a powerful approach to achieving goals and self-improvement. Originally developed in elite sports training the idea is to make small, incremental changes in multiple areas that compound over time, to drive transformational results. As outlined in the workbook, this concept of seeking continuous 1% improvements across everything from sleep habits to study techniques can unleash great momentum. By detailing the roots of why marginal gains is so effective this workbook makes a compelling case that we should all be looking for marginal gains in our lives. Through real-world examples and activities that students can use, it provides a framework for applying marginal gains thinking to see gradual yet exponential benefits. Whether trying to optimise health and wellbeing or boost academic and career success, the marginal gains mindset offers practical inspiration.
