Applying the 80/20 Rule in Goal Setting
MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE
What restraints you from achieving your goals? Are they learned feelings of helplessness? Or are they just simply excuses? Remember, whatever you have learned, you can unlearn.
If your real goal is to dream big dreams and to live without limits, you can set this as your standard and compare everything that you do against it.
“When your goals are clear, you will come up with exactly the right answer at exactly the right time”
A dream is the root of all success, for having a dream does not limit you on what you can do. Successful people allow themselves to lean back and imagine the kind of life that is possible for them.
Clarity. Have a clear vision of your desires and future to help you stay focused on your goals.
Competence. Commit yourself to doing something that enables you to become better at doing the most important things in your field.
Concentration. Persevere, without diversion or distraction, in a straight line toward accomplishing your goals.
The 80-20 rule, that 80% of an outcome generally came from only 20% of its inputs.
Take advantage of this knowledge and find out what that activities are a part of that 20 percent.
For example, say you're an agency owner looking for clients. You spend 30 minutes a day emailing potential clients and 1 hour messaging and maintaining the businesses social media account. Only 1 client was referred to you by social media, whereas you have 5 clients were gained through email. It's clear that you should shift your time to email outreach if you want to maximize your clients.
Don't be afraid to think big, because when you begin limiting the amount of success you desire, you start to cut down on the amount of action needed, and this will make success far from you.
