Using The 80/20 Rule to 10X Your Success

Grant Cardone the 80/20 rule

FROM THE DESK OF GRANT CARDONE:  Once you understand what the 80/20 Rule is, you can use it it 10X your success with this one simple little tweak.

The 80/20 Rule has been talked about about by a number of people and the 80/20 Rule basically says this:

80% of your success comes from just 20% of the things you do.

Taken further, the 80/20 rule can be seen in different areas of society:

  • Literary:  20% of authors sell 80% of the books
  • Employees:  And 20% of your employees make 80% of your sales
  • Crime:  20% of criminals commit 80% of all crimes

The point is, usually a small group of people are responsible for a large portion of things.

And the same can be said for your life.  There are just a few things you do that are responsible for the large portion of your success.  Perhaps 20% of your products produce 80% of your revenues.  Or, maybe there is a 20% period of time in your day that produces 80% of your production.

Whatever it is, you want to FIND that 20% and flip it.

If 20% of what you’re doing is giving you 80% of your results, try doing that thing 80% of the time and imagine what your results will be.

Here’s another secret:  The 80/20 Rule does not exist for the top 1%.

All the top performers I know, including myself, use the 10X Rule.  We’re using all of our energy moving to a specific target.  The 10X Rule is based on an understanding of how much effort and thought are required.  To get anything done successfully, you’ll have to think bigger and go bigger.

Chances are that if you look back over your life, you’ll see that you have wildly underestimated both the actions and reasoning necessary to accomplish any endeavor to the point where it could be labeled successful.

The 10X Rule is about what you have to think and do to get to a point 10 times more gratifying than you have ever imagined.

And if the 80/20 rule is true for you, then you need to start multiplying that 20%…
