The 80/20 Principle by Richard Koch

What I like best:  For starters, this one is near and dare to my heart!  I heavily feature - the 80/20 Principle, Pareto's Law, The Law of the Vital Few - whatever you want to call it in my work today with groundupSALES.  I just think it is absolutely crucial to our success - for a multitude of reasons.  It states that 80% of effects stem from 20% of causes.  It easiest to understand like this - only a small percentage of what you do actually matters, ha.  As Koch says, "a few things are important, most are not."

In the book Koch has set out to put the principle on high display, showcasing where it exists, and why it works.  Most importantly he discusses the critical differences between 80/20 Thinking vs 80/20 Analysis and why both should be implemented regularly in our lives today.  I like to refer to this as the productivity principle because it is the ultimate guide to maximizing your time, effort, and finances.  As always pick it up and let me know what you think!

Best Quote:  "People who achieve the most are selective as well as determined."
