As in farming, success in life comes from regular disciplined, daily effort. So says the Law of the Farm. Read on to learn how you can apply this natural law to increase the level of success in your life.

Most knowledge in any area resembles a mosaic of facts, principles and applications, with each expert building upon and enhancing the ideas of others in that field. In the same way, the ideas and principles of self-help authors often overlap and intersect in remarkable ways. One recent connection I discovered is that between Steven Covey’s “Law of the Farm” and the late Earl Nightingale’s concept of considering each day as the basic “building block” of a successful life.

The Law of the Farm

The concept behind the Law of the Farm is simple: As in farming, success in life comes from regular disciplined, daily effort. Jesus expressed this life principle in the Bible, when he told us that as we sow, so shall we reap.

A farmer cannot expect to reap a bumper crop by being lazy for three months and then “cramming” to catch up. Similarly, the greatest successes in life are built slowly and deliberately through focused, consistent, high-quality efforts on a daily basis.
