How to use the 80/20 rule to improve your life

Legend has it that Italian engineer Vilfredo Pareto noticed something peculiar about the peas growing in his garden. Vilfredo recognized that approximately 20% of his pea plants were yielding 80% of the pea crop 

He realized that this rule could be applied to all aspects of life, and it’s now considered the Pareto Rule, or what you might call – The 80/20 Rule. 

The 80-20 rule states that 80% of your outcomes (outputs) come from 20% of causes (inputs). Using the pea example, 80% of the peas eaten from the garden came from 20% of the plants.
