The 80/20 rule says that on a list of 10 tasks, only 2 of those tasks will return 80% of the value of the entire list. Look at your "to do" list for today. Which tasks are directly related to what you most want in life? Find the 2 high value items on your list and tackle them first. These tasks are the ones that really move us forward.


Many of us actively avoid the top 2 priorities because they are the most challenging than the rest. If they are to lead us to worthy goals they are undoubtedly asking us to move into new territory in thinking and acting, and this can be very scary. But this is also REWARDING. 



"Don't kid yourself. It's because you're doing all those C's (low priorities) and NOT because you haven't any time that you don't get to do the A's" .

Follow the 80 / 20 Rule

    Warren Buffett's three-step rule for success
To set you on the right course, take a coaching lesson from an expert. (Warren Buffett is an investment guru). Mr. Buffett once walked his personal pilot through a life-changing exercise in goal setting that's since become popular in productivity and career circles. It is a simple, three-step process to set boundaries.  Say NO to distractions, and home in on success. It goes like this:​​  

1. Write down a list of your top 25 career/life goals.
2. Circle the 5 most important goals that truly speak to you. These are your most urgent goals.

Now here's the kicker.
3. Completely eliminate the other 20 goals that you have listed. Just cross them off., despite if they hold weight or some level of importance.

Buffet says those 20 goals
 are lower and not urgent priorities, therefore, any effort invested in them steals away dedicated focus and energy from your five highest-priority goals.

The point is to say NO to everything on that list except for what you have declared in your heart-of - hearts, to be the five most important things. These are what you should put all your effort and focus into achieving. The rest are merely distractions that will get in the way of your reaching your ultimate success.
