Learning to Soar
I ❤️ my work as an executive coach for women in Atlanta. And I know unlearning the habit of overwork is going to take me awhile, but I’m happy to have started the journey.
My 2020 Star Word was FLY and I am flying. There is no doubt about it.
But, how do I want to fly??
I want to STOP flapping my wings like a hummingbird and start soaring like an eagle.
Both birds fly, but one expends a heck of a lot less energy doing it. Eagles are also powerful and majestic and command respect.
The 80/20 Rule
The Pareto principle holds that 80% of your results will come from just 20% of your action.The Pareto principle is a “universal truth” about the imbalance of inputs and outputs. And, while it isn’t always an exact 80/20 ratio, this imbalance is often seen in business cases:
• 20% of the sales reps generate 80% of total sales.
• 20% of customers account for 80% of total profits.
So, how can you apply this principle to help you glide?
First, determine what 20% of your efforts account for 80% of your results, and become laser-focused on them. Then, analyze the other 80% of your workload and delegate, outsource, or eliminate it so you can DO LESS. An 80/20 mindset will help you to stay focused on what is working and to expend less energy flapping your wings.
