There is great power in the exponential function. For instance, when you think of the value of money, using the compound interest formula.
But besides that, we also see results from practicing something daily — the exponential buildup. If we choose something to do daily, we will, for a fact, get better at it. If we put a skill into a deliberate practice, there is no way we wouldn’t get good at it. Showing the tenacity and determination to improve is what sets the masters apart from the apprentice.
