We’ve all been exposed to the 80/20 Principle at some point in our lives: The principle states, quite simply, that 20% of efforts lead to 80% of results. Whether you know it as the “Pareto Principle” or the “Principle of Least Effort,” it’s an incredibly powerful concept.
Although many authors discuss the 80/20 Principle as a core component of their time management and self-development programs, (a former Bain & Co and BCG Consultant) provides an entertaining and practical application of the theory in his great book . In fact, he’s become the living guru on the subject and if you dig this Note, you’ll definitely enjoy the book—which is densely packed with Big Ideas you can apply to your business, relationships, time management tactics and even (especially!) to discovering and living your purpose.
Trust you’ll enjoy this quick look at the book and that the Big Ideas will get you thinking about how you can focus your time and energy on the activities that give you the most results!
