Time Management with 80/20 Principle

“We have been conditioned to think that high ambition must go with thrusting hyperactivity, long hours, ruthlessness, the sacrifice both of self and others to the cause, and extreme busyness…The combination is neither desirable nor necessary. A much more attractive, and at least equally attainable, combination is that of extreme ambition with confidence, relaxation, and a civilized manner…Most great achievements are made through a combination of steady application and sudden insight…Most of what any of us achieve in life, of any serious degree of value to ourselves and others, occurs in a very small proportion of our working lives…We have more than enough time. We demean ourselves, both by lack of ambition and by assuming that ambition is served by bustle and busyness. Achievement is driven by insight and selective action.” (p. 141)
