The 1% Solution solves one of life's biggest problems - how to overcome a lifetime of obstacles fast enough in order to make a significant impact in the limited time we have or, more precisely, how to become a 20-year overnight success!
Inside each one of us are big goals and lofty dreams. We aspire to be better people so we can live a fulfilling life, help those we care for, make our mark in this world and leave it a little better than we found it. As humans, we strive for more than just living; we strive to make a difference and to inspire others. However, sometimes we get stuck and find it hard to persevere. Other times we are fearful, since the gap between where we are today and where we hope to be tomorrow looks enormous. This can cause us to give up before we even start or become discouraged in the process.
There is no need to struggle by yourself.

The 1% Solution is based on the habits that helped the author, Eamonn Percy, turn his life around from an aimless 20-year old to a successful career in business as a global executive, entrepreneur and investor. It is practical, not theoretical, and based upon real-life experience.
