Summary Description

The “80/20 Principle” is based on Richard Koch's ground-breaking research stating that 80 percent of results come from just 20 percent of causes or efforts. In this summary, the author focuses on how to use this principle to work out the few things that are really important and the few methods that will give you what you really want.

If you're like most busy executives, you wish you had more time so you could do more. Then you could get more done at work, plus have more time to relax, spend time with your family, and enjoy life to the fullest.

But to be both successful and happy, you have to do less, not more. This surprising insight is based on Richard Koch's ground-breaking research into the well-validated “80/20 Principle.” This principle states that 80 percent of results come from just 20 percent of causes or efforts.

For example, 80 percent of your company's sales come from 20 percent of your customers. You send 80 percent of your e-mails to 20 percent of the people in your address book. And 80 percent of the car accidents on the nation's roads are caused by 20 percent of the drivers.

Koch's business classic The 80/20 Principle explained how to apply this important concept to achieve corporate success. Now, in his new book, Living the 80/20 Way,he focuses on how to use it to succeed personally and well as professionally. The key is to work out the few things that are really important, and the few methods that will give you what you really want, and to act on them while ignoring all the activities that waste your time.
