You've heard about it in other audio programs, you've read about it in business and personal development books, and you've heard countless people refer to the pesky "Pareto Principle" and how it greatly affects our lives - but do you actually know how it works?

In this thought-provoking and highly informative program from Nightingale-Conant, Richard Koch unveils the secrets to how this mysterious but practical principle actually works. The 80/20 principle is probably affecting you already, so you should learn how to use it toyour advantage.

In The 80/20 Principle: The Secret to Success by Achieving More with Less, you'll learn that you can actually be more effective with less effort by learning how to identify and leverage the 80/20 principle. The 80/20 principle is the well-verified observation that in business, economics, and life generally, about 80 percent of all results flow from a mere 20 percent of our efforts. But it goes much further than that.

You probably know, for example, that 20 percent of customers account for 80 percent of profits. But did you know that 20 percent of our time accounts for 80 percent of the work we accomplish? The 80/20 principle shows how you can achieve much more with much less effort, time, and resources, simply by identifying and focusing your efforts on the 20 percent that really counts. Although the 80/20 principle has long influenced today's world, Richard Koch reveals just how this principle works and shows how you can use it in a systematic and practical way to vastly increase your effectiveness and transform not only your career, but your family and personal relationships as well. This is new territory not covered by any other writer or speaker. The program is based on Koch's acclaimed book The 80/20 Principle, which has sold more than half a million copies worldwide, and also on unpublished material from The 80/20 Way.

In The 80/20 Principle: The Secret to Success by Achieving More with Less you'll learn:
  • How to think "80/20" in all areas of your life.
  • That the highest levels of intelligence and laziness need each other.
  • That there can always be plenty of time in your life.
  • The freedom of becoming an 80/20 thinker.
  • Success really does come from doing what you love.
  • How to turbo-burst your career.
  • How to multiply your finances.
  • How to nurture your family and friends.

The unspoken corollary of the 80/20 principle is that little of what we spend our time on actually enriches our lives. But, by concentrating on the few things that do matter, we can unlock the enormous potential of the central 20 percent and multiply our happiness and fulfillment. The 80/20 principle is probably the best way for ambitious but grounded individuals to transcend the pressures of modern life - to become more successful than today but also to enjoy more leisure, serenity, and great relationships with friends and loved ones.
