Have you heard of the 80/20 Rule?
It’s a helpful idea to manage stress and time. It’s SUPER-helpful during the holidays, when lots of us need help remembering what’s important, managing resources, and improving how we get things done.
Here’s what it says, in a nutshell: 80% of the outcomes in life come from 20% of the causes.
Put another way, we get the most results from a fraction of our efforts.
Put another way, don’t run around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to do everything! It’s really not productive.
And I’m pointing this out during this hectic time of year because – well, because it’s so easy to get overwhelmed and stressed by the holidays that we DO end up running around like that unfortunate bird.
- Because we accept as “URGENT” all those demands put on us by other people.
- Because we have FOMO.
- Because we don’t want to let people down.
So, take a moment… Breathe… And remember to focus your energy on the relatively few things that are going to bring you the most happiness.
