Are you busy? Silly question, of course you are.
A better question would be, “Are you getting satisfactory results?”
We all have lots of projects on the go. Myriad things that take our time. But are you focusing on the right things?
In our experience, people fall into two broad camps.
Camp 1: People who start lots of things but never finish.
Camp 2: People who go down rat holes in never ending spirals looking for perfection.
Either way is fraught with danger.
The solution is the 80/20 rule.
Put simply, 20% of your efforts will produce 80% of the result. Question is which effort?
Here’s what I suggest you do.
Write down every project you have on the go.
Decide which ones are getting you closer to your results. Be ruthless. Focus on this 20% and finish them. Throw out the ones you haven’t touched in 6 – 12 months.
Now, it’s often quite difficult to figure out the important 20% and you may need external input to support you.
I urge you to get it. Either from us with our “2 Heads Interventions” or someone else. Just do it.
