Vilfredo Pareto was a nineteenth century scholar; he discovered that in any set of elements, the critical elements usually constitute a minority. This developed into the 80 / 20 rule or Pareto’s Principle. This means ‘a few [20 percent] are vital and many [80%] are trivial’. You can apply the 80/20 rule to anything from the science of management to the physical world. When you consider what’s most important, it allows you to be clear on what’s crucial and not crucial.

Functioning at Your Best

Comments Off on Functioning at Your Best
All of us have a “prime time” in the day; it’s that time when you feel good, focused, and productive. For some, it’s early morning, while for others, it’s later in the day or evening. The idea is to understand the time you function at your best and schedule your daily routine around  your energy cycles. An energy cycle is how your body functions throughout the day. You need to take note of when you feel good, when you feel tired, or you are just chugging along going through the motions. Not really achieving anything but looking like you are working.

Delegating is a fantastic time management tool with incredible benefits both for you and the person you are delegating the task to. Don’t confuse delegating jobs with telling people what to do. When delegating, you don’t “tell someone to do stuff.” You give them responsibility and ownership of regular work; such as, ordering the stationery, collecting feedback from clients, updating clients with their job order.

Developing a Clear Direction

In life and at work it is very easy to just take each day and it comes, to go with the flow, see what happens. However, if we are going to take ownership of our life, be the master of our destiny, then we have to start making plans. We need to think about what it is we want in life.

Tim Ferriss, author of “”The 4 hour Work Week”” strongly recommends a “”not-to-do list”” as he believes that what you don’t do determines what you can do. Doing less is the key to success. Having less clutter saves you time. Taking on fewer jobs means you can focus and complete projects. This means making room for tasks that are the best use of your time. Being over committed means you’re not functioning as the best you can be.”
