The 80-20 rule can be applied to every aspect of your life, yet it is widely forgotten by many. This is an old principle which says that from 20% of the causes you get 80% of the results. For example, you wear 20% of your clothes 80% of your time, you go out 80% of your time with 20% of your friends, you get 80% of income from 20% of the income generating sources.

Efficient Effectiveness (2 min read)

Ok broham, we’ve got a little something to talk about today.

This actually came up in my private Facebook group
So I thought it’d be a great idea to share my thoughts with
Everyone, since I believe this is something very important
That we all should know.

Ok so there’s 3 things that I think that we should all know.
Two of them they teach early on in school, but unfortunately
The third, not so much.
What are they?
Pretty simple really…

Addition, Subtraction, and the 80/20 rule or
As it’s formally called, Pareto principle
The first two (I hope) you already know, but the last one
You may not be so familiar with.
So let me break it down in our language so we can talk…

The 80/20 principle is simply about the law of averages.
It’s actually a principle of nature that is based on chaos theory.
Essentially what it amounts to is that 20% of what you do is
Going to amount to 80% of your results

It’s something you see everywhere.
20% of the population has 80% of the wealth
The average person uses 20% of their apps 80% of the time
20% of the clothes you wear probably 80% of the time
Contractors use only 20% of their tools for 80% of their work.

You see it everywhere and when you understand what it is
You can use it to help you in everyday life.

First of all, you will see that in nature nothing can be equal
So, if you’re hoping for a society where everyone has equal
Wealth or what have you, then you’ll be fighting nature
And that my friend, is a tough battle.

For the full potential of the 80/20 rule, it’s just a matter
Of doing whatever it is that you are good at and get better.
Pretty simple right?!

Not everyone can be a billionaire, but if everyone works to
Their fullest potential by finding power through strength
Then everyone can and will eventually help society
Become stronger as a whole. 

So do yourself (and society) a favor and stop living in the 80%

First, know yourself. Or as Socrates put it: “Know Thyself”
Sounds a little vague, but you can gain clarity by first
Getting in touch with yourself (ha…touch yourself) with
Daily meditation and exercise.
It doesn’t take long, but it has a huge benefit on your psyche
And helps you produce amazing results in every part of your life.
