80/20 Approach to Time Management

“There is…no point in seeking marginal improvements in how we spend our time. We need to go back to the drawing board and overturn all our assumptions about time…There is no shortage of time. In fact, we are positively awash with it…And for the most talented individuals, it is often tiny amounts of time that make all the difference…The 80/20 Principle treats time as a friend, not an enemy…It is not shortage of time that should worry us, but the tendency for the majority of time to be spent in low-quality ways. Speeding up or being more ‘efficient’ with our use of time will not help us; indeed, such ways of thinking are more the problem than the solution.” (p. 149)
