The 80/20 rule, also known as The Pareto Principle, suggests that 80% of your results should come from 20% of your work. There’s an uneven relationship between inputs and outputs.
So – apply this rule to your life. Each task you take on – what will the result be? Do it contribute to your overall goal?
If you want your house to be clean – what will help you achieve that goal first?
Spending 3 hours washing the baseboards? Or, spending that time vacuuming, mopping, and doing the dishes?
