Dr Sam's Effective Effort Principle
Updated: Jun 30
You might be expending all of your efforts and energy professionally, but if it's not giving you the return you had hoped for then... read on. We're going to explore one game-changing approach that could accelerate your career and business ambitions.
So you've heard of Pareto's Law, right?
By that I mean the 80/20 rule. Which simply means that 80% of all of your outcomes are derived from a mere 20% of your efforts/inputs. It's a tough one to take but that is the reality and that is the bottom line for your career as well.
Does this sound familiar
If you're putting in the hours to deliver, ticking all of the job boxes for that promotion or expending all of your effort to the point there is nothing left for anyone or anything else then it's time to take a new approach. You have goals, you have a professional identity that is part of who you are so why not make the most of it.
Class is in session:
In my view the 80/20 rule is only half the story
You have this amazing 20% of your work that creates impact, the work you get rewarded for, that enables you to achieve more by opening up other opportunities.
You now need to flip those numbers to 20/80.
When you do that impact work you need to spend 20% of your time actually doing the work and 80% actually communicating it and generating impact as a result of it.
