Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.
I’m sure some of you might have come across the 80/20 rule?
The Pareto principle (also known as the 80/20 rule, the law of the vital few, or the principle of factor sparsity) states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.
So with that in mind here’s how to use the 80/20 rule to make today count.
This is how to arrange goals the 80/20 method. 80/20 formula is a really effective method to get the most crucial matters completed first. 80/20 formula is a really effective way to get matters done to accomplish your goals quicker.
First of all-you need to get a pencil and paper out. Draw an upright line down the center of the paper. This will split the paper into 2 columns. On the top of the left column put down: matters I have to do. On the top of the right column put down: matters I shouldn’t do.
Arrive at a list of the top matters you feel you have to do, in order to accomplish your goals. Put down anything that springs to mind. These must little honest action steps that will get you closer to your goal. For instance if your goal is to begin a business, then what you have to do is write up a mission statement, seek employers, research rivalry and so forth.
2nd on the right-side make a list of matters you shouldn’t do. This is crucial. Put down a list of matters you shouldn’t do that will block you or put obstructions in your way from your goals. When you write up distinctly what matters you believe shouldn’t be done, you get more clear-cut on what you have to do in order to move ahead. I’ve discovered this step crucial in accomplishing my goals.
3rd count the number of– “to dos” on the left side of your page, and right the sum up number on the bottom and circle that number. Next do the same thing for the “Not to accomplish list.” from the left side of the page, and circle this number. Following, discover what is the 20% on each side that you believe are most crucial that you must and must not accomplish. For instance if you’ve ten matters listed on your to do list, then you are able to only pick two things to go on your fresh list, and you have to erase or delete the remaining eight. So pick solely the 20% that will get you toward your goals and you believe are most crucial, and ignore the rest. Following, get a fresh piece of paper, and this time write only the 20% (select few) from each column and place it on this fresh sheet of paper.
Now you’ve a list of matters to accomplish and not to accomplish that are of peak importance, and represent your 20%. This is a good visual to keep you on course with your goals, and keeps you centered on the 20% that truly matters, and gets to your goal. I’ve discovered this strategy very effective, and worthwhile. You’ll be astonished by how rapidly you move toward your goal when you remain centered on the 20% that counts, and wipe out the 80% that doesn’t matter.
And that’s it folks so I now dare you to use the 80/20 rule and make today really count, to your success…
