Focusing On The Essentials In Life

Focusing On The Essentials In Life

Essentialism is a disciplined, systematic approach for determining where our highest point of contribution lies, then making execution of those things almost effortless.

Being constantly interrupted by many different tasks isn't going to make you successful, only distracted. So clear away the distractions and put most of your energy on the essentials and create something worthwhile.

The Pareto Principle is also known as the 80-20 Principle and it mainly revolves around the idea that we should focus on the few things that give you the most benefit.

For many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. So choose three Most Important Tasks for each day, and focus completely on getting them done within a specific time. By restricting yourself to a small number of things, you force yourself to focus only on the essential.

A success list is a short, well-kept list that aims to lead us in a specific direction in an organized manner. If a list isn't built around success, then success is not where it takes you.

To-do lists tend to be long; success lists are short. One pulls you in all directions; the other aims you in a specific direction. And if your to-do list contains everything, then it’s probably taking you everywhere but where you really want to go.
