Not long after I learned about the 80/20 Rule or Pareto’s Principle...I applied it immediately!
The easiest way to apply this principle in life is to look at the things that you do daily that influence your happiness and productivity.
How often do people spend their day in a negative headspace (complaining, comparing, gossiping, being upset or zapping your emotional energy away)?
The theory is that 80% of the effects are created by 20% of the causes.
By cutting the non-essential and the things that generate little value, you declutter your mind, space and time!
Step 1: Identify your 80/20 goals or values.
Step. 2: Identify your 80/20 actions.
Step. 3. Start!
20% of my habits create 80% of my values.
These are meditation, eating healthy, exercising, family and committed to learning and growing. (Health & Wellness, State of Being and Mindset.)
Which 20% of your daily tasks create the most value and happiness? Can you reduce the 80% that do not give you much in return?
