3. 20% of efforts.
Find the critical efforts that lead to the majority of results.
Eg. Many ventures often times rely on a few key missions to succeed.

4. Conduct an 80/20 analysis. Find out what you can optimise. To maximise your effectiveness, focus only on what matters most.

5. So, what you can do about it? “Eliminate or reduce the 80% of efforts that produce poor results, there are many ways to waste your time and resources.”

Bonus point- 20% of People cause 80% of problems in our lives.
