The worst use of time is to do well what need not be done at all. The Pareto Principle says that 20% of your activities will account for 80% of the value of your activities. This means that if you have a list of ten items to accomplish, two of those items will be worth more than the other eight items altogether. To achieve great things, you must always concentrate on the small number of activities that contribute the greatest value to your life and your work.
