Living In Integrity, Health And Abundance Series, Part 3
Part 1 - The Top Reason People Don’t Succeed
In the last segment you read about someone who had buried herself in the mundane tasks of everyday living to the point where the objectives she had identified as important to her where not getting done.
- Sadly it is not uncommon.
Many people get so caught up in the act of being busy that they fail to achieve their dreams. Getting the groceries done or the kids picked up from school needs to be done, but they get so busy running around focusing on the little stuff that the big life changing stuff never happens.
Because so many people don’t focus on getting even a few important tasks completed, years can pass and nothing significant gets accomplished. Sure the kids are happy, grow and develop but what happened to the dreams?
For the most part they get abandoned. People ditch their big dream either because they forget, or they’re too busy to take action.
- Once the kids are in school, I’ll get that project started ...
- When I get that promotion I’ll be able to …
- By next month I’ll be ready to start …
The problem is, there is always something, and unless you find a way to break out of the mold, you’ll look back in 3, 5 or 10 years and realize not much has changed.
Successful people know that to achieve any goal they must take action, yet interestingly, the amount of effort they invest to substantially achieve their objective tends to be surprisingly small.
The Pareto Principle
There is a simple rule you may have heard about known as the Pareto principle that says 20% of what you do will deliver 80% of your results.
- We wear 20% of our clothes 80% of the time
- 80% of the office work is done by 20% of the people
- 80% of company revenues come from 20% of their customers
The 80/20 Rule applies to virtually everything including your health, finances, happiness, relationships and so on. The trick to adopting and using the 80/20 Rule is to determine which 20% of your daily activities will deliver 80% of your big goals.
Using an 80/20 approach to daily living gives you a way to balance your time and efforts of doing the essential yet mundane busy things and still have considerable time available to take action on the tasks that can get you from where you are to where you want to be.
If by now you have defined your really big goals and broken then down into smaller steps as suggested in part 1, spending 20% of your time on those smaller steps, one at a time is guaranteed to deliver results in line with your objectives.
It is the consistency of putting 20% of your daily time into the small steps that over time delivers the really big results and in this case you can look back in 1, 5 or 10 years and easily see your progress and also take great pride in your accomplishments.
Why would you spend 80% of your time doing things that don’t give you the results you want? Here is an example of my own that I’ve just recently come to terms with.
A Few Years Ago I Found Out Just How Accurate The Pareto Principle Is
As a small business owner I had wrestled with the problem of hiring staff. On the one hand the business was growing, but on the other hand, I felt the cost of hiring would take away my hard earned profits.
The problem with this situation was that because the business was growing I found myself spending more and more time doing everyday administrative tasks that took me away from by customers, clients, partners and future growth opportunities.
I ended up investing 80% of my efforts into activities that brought me just 20% of the results which is the exact inverse of the Pareto principal. I had gotten so busy with the everyday requirements of running the business that I lost sight of my original goals.
Fearfully I took steps to hire an assistant and in a matter of weeks I noticed that as my ability to focus on my customers improved, so did my business prospects because I was able to focus on customers and expand my reach into new areas of endeavor.
If you don‘t have time to focus on your dreams because you have made going to the grocery Store a priority, then that’s just not intelligent, and that’s not how successful people get things done.
- Why did I decide to stop doing the (important but) small tasks myself?
- Was it because I am lazy?
No. Success for me is happening because I have developed a system, an approach that allows me to focus my time on activities that supports the business and delivers better results faster.
I apply this same system in all my counselling and training services too because it has consistently shown to help people achieve superior results.
For example, since I found someone to support the daily administrative tasks of the company, in the past year I have solidified and expanded my private counseling services, improved the quality of service to my clients, co-authored a book called The Power Of Team, documented my methodology on natural healing into the Bodiwell Health System, been a featured speaker at several large national venues, had my articles featured in several national publications and launched my own internet radio show, teleseminars to name a few ... and I was not working harder.
What is the bottom line when it comes to results?
Decide what you want achieve, identify solutions for anything significant that might stop you from doing it and then put 20% of your daily efforts into actions that will deliver 80% of the results. With persistency you can not fail.
