Effort v Output

If 80% of your results comes from 20% of your efforts, what is the 20% you need to focus on?

We talk about working hard, putting in lots of effort, but perhaps it’s more to do with, inspired action and a positive frame of mind…

I recently read Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project (which I really enjoyed) and she talks about happiness being a critical factor for work. She states that the happy outperform the less happy and are less likely to show the counterproductive behaviour of burnout and unproductive work. Apparently a study has shown that students who are happy as freshmen were earning more money in their mid -thirties, without the wealth advantage to start.

Therefore our frame of mind together with our ability to organise our time – super efficiently – makes a huge difference to our effectiveness and output. And we are more likely to enjoy ourselves, at the same time!

Do what you love and love what you do!
