Life is Short: Do Things That Matter. Think 96:4 !

Life is Far Too Short to Waste It on Trivia
So we need to make use of every minute.
But I see so many people wasting time. They spend hours in meetings that could be dealt with by email and spend less time with friends and family (spending time with friends and family is rarely wasted).
They design complex business and marketing systems that eat into the hours they have. And lets face it we all have an allotted number of hours in our life and once they are gone .. so are we!
They try to sell products and services for which there is no need.
Sort out which actions you take each day really make a difference. Think about the actions that contribute to your goals and delete all the others. We all know that roughly 20% of our time brings in 80% of our income. So focus more on the 20% and only do useful and profitable things.
Now you have 80:20 working to your advantage.
So now take the 20% and further refine those. Out of them you’ll find the 20% (of your original 20%) that make most difference. Now you are working with the 4% of actions that really make a difference. I.e. 96:4
Can you clone or replicate these really successful actions?
Can you outsource some of them and put your business on autopilot?
Can you automate some of them and release more time?
No one gets paid to work hard… we only get paid to produce results.
So focus on what gets results in your daily life.
