What is the 80/20 Principle? The 80/20 Principle states that “80% or more of what you achieve is a direct result of 20% or less of your actions.” A man named Richard Koch wrote several books on this principle and how you can use it to achieve more with less. Like Reagan said, “Hard work never killed anybody, but why take the chance?”
The key is to figure out what gives you the most results and then focus on that to achieve more. You must have the motivation to change. We all know so many ways that we can become more successful-setting goals, using the 80/20 principle-most of the time we just lack the motivation to actually change. It’s up to you to decide what you will become. This is the most important part of Koch’s book.
