You’ll hear lots of variations on the “80/20 rule”:
- 20% of the people do 80% of the useful work.
- If you do the right 20% of the solution, you’ll fix 80% of the problem.
- 80% of your time is spent doing relatively useless stuff, but the other 20%, when you’re productive, delivers 80% of the value.
- 80% of this blog post is probably wasted, so look for the 20% that you can learn something from.
