A long, LONG time ago, an Italian economist named Pareto noticed that 80% of the wealth in Italy was held by 20% of the people. Joseph Juran took Pareto’s Principle and successfully applied it to quality management–and the 80/20 Rule was born.
The 80/20 Rule says (among other things) that 80% of sales come from 20% of customers, or that 80% of your results come from 20% of your effort. It’s about productivity and identifying the significant tasks/actions that contribute most to it. Prioritize the most important tasks, and you become super efficient and effective. You will spend time on the things that matter.
Apply that idea to writing your 30/60/90-Day Plan. Identify critical tasks for the first 3 months on the job, write them down and present it to the hiring manager, and you’ll make a humdinger of an impression on him. Watch the video to find out more.
