Pareto’s 80-20 Rule

The principle named after Vilfredo Pareto spotlights the “law of the valuable few”.

Or stated differently, 20% of the things you try will bring 80% of your success.

There are 2 approaches to applying this principle.

#1 – Try 100 different things, so that you’ll hit upon the 20 that work.

#2 – Try and come up with only the 20 that will work.

But with approach #2, since Pareto principle will be at play even here, only 20% of your ‘best guesses’ will be right!
