Using Pareto’s Law will ensure that you eliminate things that are ineffective and gain more time by doing only what’s most effective. You reduce your anger and increase your happiness.
Pareto’s Law was invented by economist Vilfredo Pareto. It says that 80% of wealth and income is produced and possessed by 20% of the population.
More importantly, this law can be applied in almost every area of life. It can be formulated as 80% of consequences flow from 20% of causes. For example, 80% of results come from 20% of effort and time.
