The path from 80% to 100% of the level of perfection, which takes 80% of the effort, is necessary because you can either grow or degrade. First you slowly go to perfection, then you slowly degrade. The situation allows you to taste the fruits of your perfection and enjoy life for a long time.
In the law Pareto talks about 80% of efforts giving 20% of income, and claims that they are useless. This is a misconception. The point is, prepare for the worst and hope for the best. For the best to happen, you need to do a lot of useless work to prepare for the worst, and if you don't do it, the best will not happen.
Pareto's law cannot be divided. If you remove 80% of the useless effort, you just reduce the volume of the system, and it collapses. Pareto's law is a consolation for those who ask: "Why do I make so many stupid and useless efforts?»
Truth is good, but focusing on truth leads to the loss of up to 80% of the potential truth. The fact is, most of what you think is false is also true. Therefore, it is more profitable to take a lie for the truth than to deny the lie and lose the truth.
The pride is that after doing 80% of the work, spending 20% of the effort, to think that you have reached perfection and, stopping, fall into the sin of greed and stop further perfection. Greed-spend the other 80% of the time. Greed to find another perfection and laziness to spend energy for the remaining 20% of perfection.
The number 666 (the devil's number) is the number of days (2 years of work) that are required to reach the first level of perfection by working and focusing your attention for 3 hours a day. We are talking about 10,000 hours needed to achieve perfection and success, with 20% of the effort giving 80% of the result. The remaining 80% of the effort will be available only to those who have true love and perseverance. Achieving a full level of excellence requires 10 years of work for 3 hours a day.
Encourage people and make them feel confident. It's so precious. People will be grateful to you. What's more, even life itself will be grateful to you. It's not a secret that being confident of success guarantees almost 80% of success. And providence likes things to get done and it will be grateful to those who contribute to it.
The good is especially appreciated when opposed to the bad. And when everything around is purely good... and there's nothing to compare it with, then everything good automatically becomes grey and usual.
So you might have guessed what it feels like when everything about you is 80% good and 20% ho hum. And being full of greed you decide to get EVERYTHING with your last strength, to become totally satisfied. But right the moment after you get it ALL, you will lose it ALL. And soon your life will become terrible and you'll have to start it all over again.
This sequence of events is typical of every field. People are social animals who constantly need to compare themselves with what is near and what is far. And though any philosophy constantly teaches us that we should compare ourselves only with ourselves, does it really help anyone?
It's necessary to love your goal. And goal slightly resembles a woman in this sense. It's difficult to love two goals simultaneously. Besides, they get offended by it. However, it's possible to fulfil up to four goals if there are enough resources for it. It takes special strength of mind and not everyone is able to do it but probably it's effective.
It's known that roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. It's about that very good which enemy is the best. As it's meaningless to try to get a hundred per cent result by means of exhausting all energy.
It makes sense to take four goals and spend twenty per cent of energy and time for each of them. And it will let one get a 320% result by using 80% of resources. Hence, we'll get a classical miraculous nonsense of more than a hundred per cent efficiency. Yes, it's impossible but however, it will work miracles. And 20% of unused time and resources can be spent on the leisure and control system arrangements.
This scheme works in different aspects: one director can efficiently control four deputy directors; one professional can fulfil up to four tasks, staff structure consists of three or four units; Prophet Mohammed mentioned four wives as a maximal number. A perfect number of children is three or four. Even a regular usual person can be devoted up to four things- job, family, hobby and something else. A typical european woman has four tasks, namely a child, a house, a job and a hobby. It's possible to have another child instead of a hobby. However, children can be seen as full tasks or subtasks of a particular task.
In most cases it's number three and not four that is used to mitigate any risks. It's simply because of the fact that a person who fulfils a goal should better spend the remaining twenty per cent of resources on controlling oneself. If a system achieved harmony and controls itself well, then it's already able to control all of the four tasks. But however, it's better to take only three things to let the process of control be more balanced and take the fourth task as controlling oneself. It will help a director maintain safety and produce eighty per cent of results all by oneself. Besides, not only the director will work on his own, but he will also be a nice example for subordinate workers.
A matter of sensible differentiation (distribution) of efforts.
Everyone knows that roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes, but not everyone knows how to put it into practice. This law says that it's irrational to spend more than 20% of efforts and time on any task. And the level of the achieved goal should not be above 80%. Anything above this level, disturbs the balance and leads to no good.
Harmonious distribution of efforts and time: 20% for work, 20% for self-improvement and studies, 20% for sport and rest, 20% for personal life and hobbies. And 20% of efforts should be spent on coordinating the four mentioned aspects. Thus, a housewife replaces the aspect called «work» with «Home and children». It's possible to sensibly coordinate «personal life» and «rest».
It's important to maintain the balance. Such a distribution will bring good mood, great workforce productivity and success at everything. Usually it's work that takes more than 20% of your energy. It's really irrational because it doesn't make sense and other aspects get a lot worse. Besides, finally the work itself gets worse too as lacking time for self-improvement results into fatigue and doing any work slowly or ineffectively.
Thus, setting aside 20% of energy for rest and sport is a very profitable investment as it helps to recharge energies spent on other aspects. What's more, it generally trains stamina. Hence, the 20% meant for work, will grow too. Moderate exercising and rest make a person beautiful and beauty brings health and makes things run smoothly.
Personal life and hobbies also give additional energy and good mood. Besides, it's a matter of investment. Hobby can always become a source of income or work. The ultimate dream of any person is to make some hobby a job. But personal life is an investment as well as it means investing into happiness. Love is a source of beauty, health and good luck... It's a deep ocean of inspiration and stamina.
The law of alternative. (The 3rd law of Soloinc). The consequence of Pareto's law.
20% of time and energy spent on work, bring 80% of income.
While additional 20% spent on work, bring 75% of loss in reference to an alternative model of investments.
It's rational to spend 20% of time and energy on work. While the remaining 80% should be spent on personal development and getting additional energy. In a quantitative sense, it will lead to the exponential growth of all available energy. In fact, it means the following:
20% of energy spent on 80% of results will bring 80 result units. And spending the remaining 80% of energy on work, will bring another 20 result units. Besides, such a working mode will make a person really exhausted, and this person's overall result will gradually decrease from 100 units to 10, so that finally this person will be broken.
But if a person spends the 80% of free energy the right way, then the total amount of available energy will increase and the original 20% of it will bring approximately 160 result units. What's more, it will help a person remain happy, healthy and able to work in this mode for a long time.
It's inefficient to spend more than 20% of efforts and time on some particular thing. And ineffective use of energy is a sin that leads to pain, suffering and general decrease of energy level in the body. Nature thinks that it's irrational to give energy, luck or happiness to sinful people.
Spending more than 20% of efforts on the same thing exponentially decreases the results and finally destroys the whole system.
The ideal is unattainable. The normal level of the ideal 80%, at the stage last mile begin to act repulsive force. If they are overcome, there will be a fusion, but the ideal will be destroyed and something new will arise.
It's important to set such a goal that after achieving its 80% result, it would be не стыдно было вовремя остановиться и зафиксировать прибыль.
Everything made to be more than 80% perfect, slows down this process and leads to death. Any thought going like this «well, that's all. I have done everything and now can relax and sleep a peaceful sleep» is the thought occurring a second before the end. Besides, it's also a thought leading to troubles and problems. Recollect the «last mile problem» or the fact that the final 20% of income result from 80% of your efforts.
The conclusion. Always leave some space for growth. There should always be an unrealized plan of growth. However, after having achieved 80% of growth, it's important to stop suddenly and avoid any changes or stop any progress. And it will save you from many problems.
The point is that everything is the other way round. The last mile, i.e. 20% of the road and 80% of time, is the beginning, in reality. At the beginning, we accumulate critical mass and move slowly and stubbornly towards an explosion. Then, when explosive growth takes place, we walk 80% of the road in 20% of time. That is, your last mile is not the completion of your current job but preparation for a new stage. Explosive growth following the last mile is the growth of something new.
Look what the point is. If you give it 100 percent, you stoop to a new low and give 100%, going in a circle. This is what is called a second wind. If you give it 80%, it means you just lost 80% of your energy and time and remained empty and weakened. There has been no breakthrough either. A breakthrough is a second wind.
Angel is a barrel of honey fly, and the demon this fly with honey. Angel 80% good, and demon is 80% bad. Idealists are people who, in an attempt to get rid of tar and achieve complete perfection in one thing, degrade very seriously in everything else.
Idealists simply do not know that in the gold nugget of gold percent 80%, and in the gold ore is not more than 3%. Idealists think that a barrel of honey spoils a spoon of honey and it should be thrown away.
The sky is really full of money, it fell on earth in rain, watering its fields. It rains for harvest. But there is enough money below the ground and on the ground... Liquid money, vapory money, solid money. Every living thing consists of money at 80%.
Curiously, a 20% chance of winning versus 80% of losing can easily win if the time and place are right. There are always four of them... he, maps, time and place... All this makes it very difficult to understand the theory of probability. Volume probabilistic model.
