  22. 22. The Art of Fabulous Living Good time management technique: The Pareto Principle www.amomentrepreneur.com
  23. 23. The Art of Fabulous Living More generally, the Pareto Principle is the observation (not law) that most things in life are not distributed evenly. It can mean all of the following things: www.amomentrepreneur.com
  24. 24. The Art of Fabulous Living  20% of the input creates 80% of the result  20% of the workers produce 80% of the result  20% of the customers create 80% of the revenue  20% of the bugs cause 80% of the crashes  20% of the features cause 80% of the usage www.amomentrepreneur.com
  25. 25. The Art of Fabulous Living     Make decisions on allocating time, resources and effort based on this: Instead of 1 hour on a rough draft for an article you may write, spend 10 minutes on 6 outlines for a paper / blog article and pick the best topic. Instead of investing 3 hours on a website, spend 30 minutes and create 6 different template layouts. Rather than spending 3 hours to read 3 articles in detail (which may not be relevant to you), spend 5 minutes glancing through 12 articles (1 hour) and then spend an hour each on the two best ones (2 hours). www.amomentrepreneur.com
  26. 26. The Art of Fabulous Living These techniques may or may not make sense – the point is to realize you have the option to focus on the important 20%. www.amomentrepreneur.com
  27. 27. The Art of Fabulous Living Don’t think the Pareto Principle means only do 80% of the work needed. It may be true that 80% of a bridge is built in the first 20% of the time, but you still need the rest of the bridge in order for it to work. It may be true that 80% of the Mona Lisa was painted in the first 20% of the time, but it wouldn’t be the masterpiece it is without all the details. www.amomentrepreneur.com
  28. 28. The Art of Fabulous Living When you are seeking top quality, you need all 100%. When you are trying to optimize your bang for the buck, focusing on the critical 20% is a time-saver. See what activities generate the most results and give them your appropriate attention. www.amomentrepreneur.com
  29. 29. The Art of Fabulous Living You may still be wondering how to focus on that 20%. Get rid of distractions! www.amomentrepreneur.com
  30. 30. The Art of Fabulous Living A recent study showed that employees spend an average of 24% of their week on social media. www.amomentrepreneur.com
  31. 31. The Art of Fabulous Living To reclaim that 24% you need to disconnect as part of your weekly schedule. www.amomentrepreneur.com
  32. 32. The Art of Fabulous Living Hold yourself accountable to your plan. When things happen, and they will, take the time to reprioritize and re-plan your day/week. www.amomentrepreneur.com
  33. 33. The Art of Fabulous Living At the end of the day/week take time to reflect on what you did/didn’t do well. www.amomentrepreneur.com
  34. 34. The Art of Fabulous Living Do the task you least want to do first. Get it over with. www.amomentrepreneur.com
  35. 35. The Art of Fabulous Living Email hell! Most of us would say our email it out of control! www.amomentrepreneur.com
  36. 36. The Art of Fabulous Living DELETE! DELETE! DELETE! Make the delete key your friend! Delete anything that is old and outdated that you know for sure you won’t need to refer to again. You don’t need outdated offers from your favorite online retailers, and you don’t need corny jokes from your Mom. You don’t need to keep old articles—if you haven’t had time to read them by now, there’s little chance you’ll have time to read them in the future. www.amomentrepreneur.com
  37. 37. The Art of Fabulous Living Since this task undoubtedly feels daunting put in your schedule to spend 15-20 minutes a day cleaning out old email before attending to new ones. www.amomentrepreneur.com
