If you want to succeed in business, it’s absolutely vital that you maximize your productivity.
So here’s a really unusual but supremely effective way to get a lot more done.
I call it The 90/10 Rule.
When you use the 90/10 Rule, you will handle problems at work a lot more efficiently. And become vastly more productive.
Here’s how it works.
Whenever you encounter an obstacle or problem at work, you make a commitment to yourself to spend only 10% of your time worrying about the problem and 90% of your time actively working on the solution.
(And insist that your team do the same).
It’s such a powerful technique.
When you force yourself to focus on solutions, your stress dramatically reduces, because you are not spending ages ruminating on how bad the situation is.
And your productivity soars because you are almost totally focusing on solving the issue and coming up with answers.
Worrying is such a wasted emotion in business. And over time it plays havoc with your emotions and quality of life.
That’s why it’s crucial that you discipline yourself to focus only on solutions, and not dwell on how bad the problem is or who’s to blame.
Great business leaders are always positive, solution oriented individuals.
The 90/10 Rule not only helps you achieve much more, it helps you feel strong and confident as you’re doing so.
