As an 80/20 Person, I first consider a route that will take me to the greatest amount of return for my efforts for whatever I do. I am sure that I have identified my top payoffs regularly and I, of course, consider in the payoffs anything that has a cost to it. I make sure that my personal happiness is first, always.
As an 80/20 Person, I learn how to create results with the least amount of effort. I engage in only what really matters and I let go of the trivial many. (See Quick Implementation Of The 80/20 Rule.) I learn about virtual assistants and how to get other services done for me so I do not have to be "tied up" in it all and can have freedom to do what I want and/or to pursue other high payoff possibilities in business. I read and apply the ideas in The 4-Hour Workweek, by Timothy Ferris. I avoid time consuming activities such as publishing a book and promoting it, without alot of "trail" income opportunities or doing a website like this one, for free. I learn from the masters. I obtain and follow the wisdom from Dan Sullivan's organization on the site StrategicCoach.com. I have read this and follow it: The 80% Approach (which is different from 80/20, CD, with a summary booklet).
