At Inspiring Leadership Now, we’re fascinated by people who think a little differently.
Those who have an innovative twinkle in their eye, or who are not afraid to break the mold of conventionality.
Whether it be coming up with a seemingly outlandish concept…
Having an empowering and unique leadership style…
Developing a life-changing invention…
Or creating a product that benefits the world around them… even if the world is yet to catch up to their way of thinking.
What makes these “leaders” so inspiring is that they decided to go ahead with their idea all guns blazing because something inside of them said, “Hang on, I think I might have something here.”
And as a result of their unwavering determination to put these wheels in motion, they inspired others to follow them and contribute to their grander vision.
This, in our humble opinion, is the definition of an inspiring leader.
It’s not because they have a title engraved on their office door that labels them so.
It’s because they naturally inspire people through their congruent words, actions and bold ideas – while having the courage to dare to think a little differently.
We’re talking about people like the late and great Steve Jobs who put the proverbial ding in our universe with Apple.
Or Einstein, who not only developed the general theory of relativity, but who lived by his famous quote, “We can’t solve our problems with the same thinking we used to create them.”
Or anyone who has landed on this page – like you – who may be taking action towards hatching their own entrepreneurial or leadership dreams.
Today, the world needs “true leaders” more than ever before. Leaders in business. Leaders in communities. Leaders to teach our kids how to tackle tomorrow’s problems.
But there’s often one thing that hinders many from people accelerating their business aspirations and becoming this type of leader.
It comes in the package of a small, seemingly insignificant four-letter word, which gets thrown around an awful lot and labelled as the enemy.
Everyone gets the same amount in a day.
But no matter how you look at it and shake it up, the amount is still the same.
There isn’t a formula to create more of it.
That said, there is a rule many of the most successful leaders swear by that ensures they get the most out of it.
A rule that we (among many modern entrepreneurial greats), have found to be so instrumental to every facet of life, be it in business, personal relationships or in your daily routine – that if you fall into the right side of the equation, time becomes your abundant friend.
Enter the 80/20 rule.
Coined by Italian economist, Vilfredo Pareto, the 80/20 rule basically means that most of the results in any situation – approximately 80%, in fact – are determined by a small number of causes.
Or otherwise put, 20% of what you do during your business day (if you’re yet to crack this statistical nut) yields 80% of the results. Yes, really.
- 20% of the input creates 80% of the result
- 20% of the workers produce 80% of the result
- 20% of the customers create 80% of the revenue
- 20% of the bugs cause 80% of the crashes
- 20% of the features cause 80% of the usage
- And so on and so on…
