“Efficiency is most important because it will help someone progress in their career.”

Surajit Roy

In the book, 80/20 Your Life!, the author covers several areas of your life where a simple mindset change can produce a significant impact. This change is adopting the Pareto Principle, the 80/20 rule. This book is a perfect example of Archimedes insight “Give me a place to stand and with a lever I will move the whole world.”

This book is about a principle called 80/20. The principle is that you should spend 80% of your time doing things you are good at and only 20% of your time doing things you are not good at. The book suggests that you should be ruthless about applying this principle and only do things you are good at. This bothered the person writing this summary because they believe that everyone should play to their strengths, but if everyone only did things they were good at, it would leave a mess for someone else to clean up.

Book Introduction – 80/20 Your Life

Pareto’s principle can be applied to many areas of life. For example, 20% of your clothes are worn 80% of the time. Or 20% of the books you read are responsible for 80% of your knowledge.

In the book, the 80/20 Principle, the author explains how the 80/20 rule can be applied in different sets/circumstances in one’s life. The principle is great and has been applied by many people in different ways, but the book is not as good as it could be. The author has not taken the time out to actually explain how the 80/20 rule can be applied in different sets/circumstances in one’s life and perhaps analogies or testimonials of people who have applied and succeeded by applying this principle also seems to be missing.

Book Highlights

The Principal.

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

How did it feel? Exciting, right?

Now, imagine if every day could feel like that.

It might sound impossible, but it’s not. In fact, making just a few small changes in your daily routine can lead to big results. And the best part is, these changes don’t have to be difficult to implement. If you feel like you’re always running out of time and never getting everything done that you need to, then it’s time to make a change. Follow these simple tips and you’ll be able to get more done with less effort and change your life in the process. The principal of our life is that we are responsible for our own happiness. We create our own happiness. It’s not someone else’s responsibility to make us happy. We are the ones who decide how we want to feel.

If we want to be happy, we need to take action and do things that make us happy. We need to find things that make us happy and do them every day. It’s not enough to just think about what would make us happy, we need to actually do something about it.

Apply Pareto Analysis on Your Career.

We all want to be successful in our careers. We want to achieve our goals and be recognized for our accomplishments. But sometimes it can feel like we’re stuck in a rut, stuck in a job that isn’t fulfilling or isn’t going anywhere. When applied to your career, Pareto analysis can help you identify the 20% of activities that are responsible for 80% of your results. Once you know what these activities are, you can focus your efforts on them and see an improvement in your career.

To get started with Pareto analysis, make a list of all the activities you do in a day or week. These can be big or small, work-related or personal. Once you have your list, start assigning a numeric value to each activity, based on how important you think it is to your career. Once you have your list of activities and their importance values, it’s time to start looking for patterns.

80/20 of Your Relationship.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Make a list of the things that are important to you in a relationship.
  2. Take a look at your list and see which items are most important to you. These are the things that you should focus on 80% of the time.
  3. For the other 20% of the time, try to let go of the little things that don’t matter as much. This will help you to focus on what’s really important and enjoy your time together more.
  4. Remember that the 80/20 rule is a guideline, not a hard and fast rule. There will be times when you need to focus on the less important things in order to keep the relationship balanced.

By above the 80/20 rule, you can make sure that you’re spending your time in a way that is beneficial to your relationship. Try it out and see how it works for you!

Roles in Financial Management.

If you want to be successful in business, it’s important to understand and apply the 80/20 rule, also known as the Pareto Principle.

The 80/20 rule states that 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. In other words, 80% of your results come from 20% of your efforts.

This principle can be applied to many areas of business, including sales, marketing, product development, and customer service.

For example, let’s say you’re a salesperson. You might find that 80% of your sales come from 20% of your customers. Or, you might find that 80% of your sales come from 20% of the products you sell.


I am thankful that I became aware of the principle of energy conservation as early as possible in my life. I realized that I was already on the path suggested by this book and it came as an assurance of the right path chosen. This book is a must read for all those who wish to save and conserve energy for the important things of their lives rather than consuming themselves by doing unimportant mundane things.

This book is about the laws of attraction and how to use them to get what you want in life. Craig uses metaphors and examples to explain how these laws work and how you can use them to your advantage. He also has a great sense of humor, which makes the book enjoyable to read or listen to on audio.
