The 80/20 rule will help you maintain through the holidays
Have you heard of the 80/20 Rule?
It’s a helpful idea to manage stress and time. It’s SUPER-helpful during the holidays when lots of us need help remembering what’s important, managing resources, and improving how we get things done.
Here’s what it says, in a nutshell: 80 percent of the outcomes in life come from 20 percent of the causes.
Put another way; we get the most results from a fraction of our efforts.
Put another way, don’t run around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to do everything! It’s really not productive.
And I’m pointing this out during this hectic time of year because – it’s so easy to get overwhelmed and stressed by the holidays that we do run around like that unfortunate bird.
- Because we accept as “URGENT” all those demands put on us by other people.
- Because we have FOMO.
- Because we don’t want to let people down.
So, take a moment… Breathe… And remember to focus your energy on the few things that will bring you the most happiness. Like exercising and training for triathlon! 😉
And might I remind you I live by this rule all year round!
