Product description


The 80/20 principle is the cornerstone of results-based living. Read this book and use it. - Tim Ferriss, author of The 4-Hour Workweek

Time management is not about organising your daily tasks, it is about organising your essential daily tasks, and dumping the rest. Koch has made millions from this - a bestseller based on just one idea - proving that it works. - GQ's 25 Best Business Books

Congratulations! The 80/20 Principle is terrific. - Al Ries, bestselling author of Focus and Positioning

There are ideas in here that could change your life. - The Good Book Guide

Koch is a passionate 80/20er. Read this and you will be too. - Andrew Campbell, Ashridge Strategic Management Centre

Both astute and entertaining, this is an intriguing book to help people concentrate on not wasting their lives. - Professor Theodore Zeldin, St Anthony's College, Oxford

We give this Dali-esque masterwork 5 stars... a beautiful collage of well-written prose... the book is worth many times its price. - The Weston Review

Through multiple examples, and a punchy down-to-earth commentary, Koch offers the first really useful advice we've seen in a management book for years. - Business Age --This text refers to the digital edition.

From the Inside Flap

How anyone can be more effective with less effort by learning how to identify and leverage the 80/20 principle--the well-known, unpublicized secret that 80 percent of all our results in business and in life stem from a mere 20 percent of our efforts.
The 80/20 principle is one of the great secrets of highly effective people and organizations.
Did you know, for example, that 20 percent of customers account for 80 percent of revenues? That 20 percent of our time accounts for 80 percent of the work we accomplish? The 80/20 Principle shows how we can achieve much more with much less effort, time, and resources, simply by identifying and focusing our efforts on the 20 percent that really counts. Although the 80/20 principle has long influenced today's business world, author Richard Koch reveals how the principle works and shows how we can use it in a systematic and practical way to vastly increase our effectiveness, and improve our careers and our companies.
The unspoken corollary to the 80/20 principle is that little of what we spend our time on actually counts. But by concentrating on those things that do, we can unlock the enormous potential of the magic 20 percent, and transform our effectiveness in our jobs, our careers, our businesses, and our lives. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
