Brain Food : What's your 20%?

The 80/20 Principles teaches us that if we focus our attention on our most important activities, we gain the highest return on our effort. 

Example : 
Time : 20% of our time produces 80% of the results
Work : 20% of our effort gives us 80% of our satisfaction
Leadership : 20% of the people make 80% of the decisions

Lesson learned:
1. Activity does not equal accomplishment.
2. Work smarter, not harder.
3. Organize or agonize.
4. Evaluate of stagnate. 
5. Schedule your priorities. 
6. Reacting is not leading.
7. Say no to little things. 

Ask yourself this:
What is required of me?
What gives the greatest return?
What gives me the greatest reward?
