As I put myself back […]

How Using the 80/20 Rule Will Increase Your Productivity

Have you heard of the Pareto Principle or 80/20 Rule as a time management strategy?  The 80/20 rule means that 80 percent of the outcome comes from 20 percent of the input. Sounds like a bunch of mathematical jargon, huh? 

Wondering WHY I’ve chosen to blog about the 80 / 20 Rule?  It’s in response to Real Life Scenario #9 – “I’ve heard about the 80/20 […]
