February is National Time Management Month
and last week we started off with:
TIP #1 – THE EISENHOWER MATRIX
And now, TIP #2: THE 80/20 RULE
Initially identified by Italian sociologist and economist Vilfredo Paredo, the 80/20 Rule relates to the notion that 20% of your efforts will be responsible for 80% of your results.
To help with time management, know your goals and identify the tasks that will help achieve results. Then, imagine sorting your actions to identify the 20% that will help achieve that aim and if you could do those actions 100% of the time you will be well ahead of the game.
Richard Koch’s “The 80/20 Principle: The Secret to Achieving More with Less” is a great resource to learn more about ways to apply this magical concept to many facets of your life.
