About that 80/20 thing.................

     When everything feels urgent and important, everything seems equal.  We become active and busy, but this doesn't actually move us any closer to success.  Activity is often unrelated to productivity, and busyness rarely takes care of business. . . . In other words, in the world of success, things aren't equal.  A small amount of causes creates most of the results.  Just the right input creates most of the output.  Selected effort creates almost all of the rewards.  Pareto points us in a very clear direction:  the majority of what you want will come from the minority of what you do.  Extraordinary results are disproportionately created by fewer actions than most realize.
