Apply The 80/20 Rule To Your Time

Time management is really a misnomer; you can not manage time, all you can manage are your priorities and your areas of focus. The 80/20-rule determines that the relationship between cause and effect is non-linear. For example: 20% of all customers will generate 80% of all sales revenue, 20% of all products in a company will generate 80% of the turnover and so on. The point is that there are a few vital factors that generate most parts of a result, and in fact this principle can also be applied to the use of our time. Always focus on your high yield activities!
