The 80/20 principle (also called “Pareto’s principle) is the key to exponential efficiency, and the effective use of vital resources like time, effort and money.

If you’re looking to work less but earn more, then you must learn as much as you can about the 80/20 principle. And you must strive to leverage it in every aspect of your life—especially in managing your law practice.

The best book to learn more is The 80/20 Principle by Richard Koch. Also, read this blog post (which includes a short video tutorial).

Here’s the key thing to understand. If you’re looking for uncommon results you’ll have to eschew common methods.

The 80/20 method is powerful, and it’s proven to work. But it’s uncommon, so many people downplay it or ignore it. Those kinds of people will get paltry results, instead of the spectacular results that folks who follow the 80/20 principle will get.
