The 80/20 Principle

Post by jamesbond » May 1st, 2018, 9:00 am

The Pareto principle (aka 80/20 rule) suggests that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. Given the 80/20 rule, you generally will find that you spend 80% of your time chasing that extra 20% of result. In THEORY, you should be able to do 20% of what you’re doing now and still get 80% of the result.
