In this day and age, with so many competing priorities, time is a luxury most of us wish we had more of. Unfortunately we can’t wind back the clock and once the moment is gone, it’s gone. And when it comes to achieving goals, the lack of time ranks right up there for reasons people give for why they don’t. So is it possible to accomplish more with the same amount of time?
The answer is both yes and no. No in the sense that we might not be able to accomplish more physically. Yes in the sense that we can accomplish far more beneficial outcomes when we use our time well. That’s why understanding certain principles can be a real game changer for most.
One such principle is the 80/20 rule also known as the Pareto Principle. Brian Tracy recently wrote a blog entry outlining its benefits. It’s worth taking the time to read. Trust it adds value to your day.
The 80/20 rule is one of the most helpful concepts for life and time management. According to this principle: 20 percent of your activities will account for 80 percent of your results. It can change the way you set goals forever.
