First Edition

1% Better Medallion

1% better every day ★ everything great starts small ★ Festina Lente

Tiny steps add up

If you're not who you want to be today, here's the fix: dream big, step small.

– 1% better every day.
– Action conquers fear.
– Small today beats big never.

– Stack micro wins.

– Outwork your self doubt.
– Prove your new identity to yourself.

Just start, then keep going.

The 2 seconds between best day ever and bleeding out, almost dying and learning to walk again taught me this. Maybe you won't have to learn it the hard way.


Festina lente.

  • Weighing in at a delightfully hefty 1.1 oz, it's a burden you'll love carrying everywhere.

  • Features a basic, flat, boring coin edge. Because, basically, doing the work is flat boring.

  • A personalized welcome note with motivational message guaranteed to spark joy upon unveiling, hand typed on a 1946 Smith Corona Speedline Silent typewriter, serial #2A51046.
