Thanks for your feedback!

If you’re interested in learning how the 80/20 Principle can improve your law practice, you might appreciate this email newsletter.

An Overview of 80/20

The 80/20 principle is based on the powerful-but-hidden truth that nature is filled with strange imbalances.

For example, economists and data scientists have noted the disproportionate distribution in instances such as these:

  • 80% of sales tend to come from 20% of one’s customers
  • 80% of donations in philanthropic efforts come from 20% of donors
  • 20% of the global population generates 80% of global income
  • 20% of bugs in software cause 80% of all errors
  • 20% of safety hazards cause 80% of all injuries
  • 20% of efforts to improve a system lead to 80% of all improvements

A Powerful Lever

Leveraging the 80/20 principle enables many people to achieve extraordinary success.

All you need to understand is this: you can often get powerful results with fairly modest effort.

So if you feel like you’re overworking or overthinking things, then learning more about the 80/20 principle is probably a good idea.

Assimilation is Key

Learning to use the 80/20 takes time because it’s knowledge that you must assimilate, not memorize. The goal of this newsletter is to help busy lawyers assimilate that knowledge in the easiest, most convenient way.
