Why we forget the Preado principle
The 80/20 rule holds true in so many areas of work and productivity. It's been recognised many times over in a wrath of fields.
So why do we often forget it and go chasing the 1%ers, or the poorer returners?
I think there is something ingrained in us to try to capture an opportunity when it's there. Maybe from our gather/hunter ancestors who if they saw an opportunity to get lunch, they bloody well took it instead of holding out for a higher yielding bush or animal.
Taking time periodically to observe yourself, your business, your projects, through the eyes of the Preado principal helps direct energy and attention more efficiently.
Maybe there's a big harvest around the corner, but you can only capture it if you concentrate on that important 20%
