by Richard Koch - Author of The 80/20 Principle
THE 80/20 PRINCIPLE, like the truth, can make you free. You can work less. At the same time, you can earn and enjoy more. The only snag is that you need to do some serious 80/20 Thinking. This will yield a few insights that, if you act on them, could change your life.
The catch is that you must do the thinking. You must edit and elaborate what is written here for your own purposes. But this shouldn’t be too hard.
The insights from 80/20 Thinking are few in number but very powerful. Not all of them will apply to you so if one doesn’t, skip to the next one.
Become an 80/20 thinker, starting with your own life
80/20 Thinking is reflective, unconventional, hedonistic, and non-linear. It combines extreme ambition – wanting things to change for the better – with a relaxed and confident manner. It is also constantly looking for 80/20-type hypotheses and insights.
80/20 Thinking is Reflective
The aim is to generate action that will make sharp improvements in your life and that of the people around you. This kind of action requires unusual insight. Insight requires reflection and introspection. Often, insight can be generated purely by reflection, without the explicit need for more information. Your brain already has much more information than you can imagine.
The predominant type of thinking in today’s world is very closely allied to immediate action and so is greatly impoverished.
Action drives out thought. Our objective, as 80/20 thinkers, is to leave action behind, do some quiet thinking, mine a few bits of precious insight, and then – only then – to act: selectively, on a few objectives and a narrow front, decisively and impressively, to produce terrific results with as little energy and as few resources as possible.
