Day 6: Accountability is Key for the Successful Minded

Where does all the time go? How many of us wish for another five hours to the day?

At the end of the day do you feel wiped out but really do not have much to show for it?

Here is a success principal that stems from an early 20th century mathematical formula which is now widely used in many industries to address efficiency practices.

Economist Vilfedo Pareto observed that in Italy, 80% of the wealth was owned by 20% of the population. Pareto’s observation was quickly applied by other experts in their own fields and soon it was popularized to be known as the 80/20 Rule.

This 80/20 rule can be applied to business where 20 percent of employees are responsible for 80 percent of a company’s outcome. It has personal application as well, 80 percent of your cell phone airtime minutes were spent speaking to 20 percent of the people you know.

In time management, a person spends 80 percent of their day involved in activity that results in 20 percent of productivity.

It is then no wonder why people spend 40 hours at work each week and accomplish very little. It is no wonder why people are in financial difficulties because they spend 80 percent of their time involved in activities that produces 20 percent of income.

The challenge is this; how do we make the 80/20 rule work for us? The solution is simple; put your attention on 20% input and 80% outcome. This will maximize your time, your income, your relationships and your success.

Spend 20 percent of your day being 80 percent productive. Spend 20 percent of your time on income generating activity to produce 80 percent of more income. When you spend 20 percent generating 80 percent of outcome, then there is opportunity to do another 20 percent and another 20 percent. Do you see then how the 80 percent can compound exponentially?

Doesn’t it make sense to focus your attention on implementing the 80/20 rule to work in your favor? Imagine how different your situation would be now. How about in a year from now? 5 years? 10 years?

One sure fire way to begin living a life of 20 percent input to reap 80 percent benefit is to master the art of Focus.

You do this through establishing accountability. Mastering the art of focus through accountability is a success principle that will allow you to continually benefit from the 80% of output.

Establish accountability with someone who will help you stay on task either hourly, daily, weekly, etc. This individual should commit to holding you accountable to meeting your stated goal. They should also be willing to follow through when you are not on task.

Today’s action is to identify an accountability partner.

With accountability you will be on a path to maximizing the rule and success will be found in the 80 percent of your output.

Today is your day,
