This one thing can 64x your results.

All time is NOT valued equally.

You want to know how I know?

Check this out … because it may just blow your mind.

You’ve probably already heard of the 80/20 rule (aka the Pareto Principle), right?

Basically, this refers to the fact that 80% of your efforts/time produces only 20% of your results…

And just 20% of your effort/time produces 80% of your results.

I know that sounds good, but when you drill into this concept a little deeper it gets magical and downright WILD.

And I can tell you from experience (with myself and my coaching clients) that it’s not wild at all – it’s real.

What if you took the top 20% of actions that produce 80% of your results …

and focused on the top 20% of THOSE actions?! (The top 20% of your top 20%)

According to the principle, this would mean that 4% of your overall efforts would generate 64% of your results.

And taking it one layer DEEPER …. Or 20% of the 20% of the 20% … which would generate 50% of your results.

OK, that’s mic drop time.

That boils down to 1% of your efforts creating 50% of your results.

SAY WHAT!?

To put this into perspective – think about the total revenue you created in your business in the last 12 months.

Now divide that in half.

Basically, 1% of everything you spend your time on (as a business) created those results.

That’s HUGE, right?

Can you imagine what would happen in your business if you spent more time focused on that 1% (or even on your top 4%)?!

This is why I said earlier that all time is NOT valued equally – because it’s not.

Most business owners are stuck in the 80% that’s responsible for a measly 20% of their results.

BECAUSE …

When you’re busy answering emails and returning calls, tracking client info, uploading social media content, etc. etc. etc. or maybe even cleaning your studio …

You don’t have time to network or build important, key relationships,

… or revamp your onboarding system to improve retention,

… or fine-tune your sales flow to improve conversions,

… or work on building your team so you can delegate some of your 80%.

Drilling down to your top 20%, 4%, and 1% will have EXPONENTIAL payoffs – but it requires you to shift the way you think about how you spend your time.

The key to that shift?

  1. Identifying exactly what is in YOUR 1%, 4%, and 20%.
  2. Creating a plan to spend MORE of your time in your top 1-20% (and eliminating, delegating, or automating as much of the 80% as you can).
  3. Protecting your time.
  4. And holding yourself accountable to following your plan.

Today, as you go about your day, ask yourself if what you’re spending your time on falls into the 1%, 4%, 20%, or 80% category.

If you’re not making as much progress as fast as you’d like … this will help you immediately identify why!

Lots more to come, so stay tuned.

Make it a productive day,

Alicia
