How the 80/20 Rule Can Improve Your Business
The 80/20 rule is something that you’ve likely heard about, but haven’t paid much attention to in your business. Also known as the Pareto Principle, the purpose of the 80/20 rule is your profitability.
Explaining the 80/20 Rule
The 80/20 rule means that 80% of your profit comes from 20% of your clients. So, you should focus on the tasks that make the most money for your business. The 80/20 rule is a great way to help you learn how to manage your time and prioritize what you should work on each day.
Using the 80/20 Rule in Your Business
Commonly, small business owners default to a concept commonly abbreviated as GSD. It means “getting stuff done.” We get in production mode and we just start tackling the list of everything that has to be done. Sometimes, the list of things to do in a day is longer than what we can actually do. You can use the 80/20 rule to prioritize your list.
Rewrite your to-do list with the most profitable items at the top. Profitable items can include contacting potential clients and referrals. Then, whatever time you have left after implementing the 80/20 rule you can use to handle administrative and other tasks.
What If You Don’t Have Time to Do It All?
While the 80/20 rule is helpful in prioritizing the best tasks to tackle throughout your day to keep your business profitable, it can often leave other necessary tasks unfinished. If you don’t have time to do it all, consider partnering with others to get everything done.
