What Pareto’s Principle Teaches Us About Productivity

 In Business Psychology, Lifestyle, Productivity

80% of output is generated by 20% of the effort. The 80/20 rule applies to many aspects of life and business. To be more productive, you need to focus your attention on the 20% that delivers maximum results.

The idea of unequal distribution was first suggested by Vilfred Pareto, a Chilean economist. Based on his research, Pareto arrived at the following conclusion – a minority of effort, causes, and inputs lead to a majority of rewards, results, and outputs.

Allocating your effort and focus is all the more important when only a small portion of your work delivers significant results. When a small amount of work can lead to big results, it becomes important to find out where you need to focus your energy.

Are you working towards your goal or being distracted?

Prioritize Your To-Do List For Greater Productivity

We tend to write things on our to-do list as they spring up in our consciousness. But when it is evident that a majority of what you want to achieve comes from a minority of what you do, it is important to prioritize.
Start by identifying the 20% that delivers the greatest results in your list of things to do today. These are the vital few actions that you need to focus your attention on.
Next, identify the 20% of the 20%. These are the tasks that you must perform first.
When you have identified your vital actions for the day, leave out the remaining trivial tasks.
You can unlock success and start seeing big results in every aspect of your life when you look for the 20% that constitutes the vital few actions you need to address before being distracted by other trivial tasks.
