The 80/20 Rule

What's the secret? The Pareto Law, known as the 80/20 rule. It is a universal law that can be applied to everything in your life, to your marketing as actors, our projects we are working on, and even our acting to help give us more focus and clarity, and thus dramatically increase our results. 
It states that for many events, roughly 80 percent of effects come from 20 percent of causes. This 80/20 thinking enables us to spot the few really important things and ignore the mass of unimportant things. I see many actors—I was guilty too when I was young—confusing a lot of work for productive work. Once you begin to see things thought the 80/20 prism, you will be able to free yourself from the 80 percent of work that really yields very little for you. 
Focus on the 20 percent of work you do that has 80 percent impact on driving your career.
