Book - The 80/20 Principle
This book may not be intended as a self-help of therapeutic book however like most things I take the learning and find ways to apply it to myself and there are great lessons here. The book is based on The Pareto principle. that 80% of resources are held by 20% of the population. that 20% of what we do accounts for 80% of our happiness. 20% of customers account for 80% of the profit. Call centres and the police know that most annoyances are from only a small percent of the people they deal with.
Focusing on the top 20% of what makes you unhappy in life will account for 80% of your happiness, anyone who has worked with me as a client will know I like to focus on the areas that will give the greatest help, we can always work on the nitty gritty after you feel better. we don't have to work on everything in your life for you to feel much better we only need to work on the most important parts the top 20% and the rest will fall into place.
It is the proven fact that we only regularly use 20% of what we own yet waste more time on the unwanted and unused junk we collect. we do 80% of our work within 20% of our time. that 80% of your issues and unhappiness are from only a small 20% of your thoughts meaning it is not hard to change because you only need to do 20% to gain 80%.
