Are you using or abusing the 80/20 rule? Be honest.
In most areas of life, the 80/20 rule refers to this almost magical phenomenon whereby 80 percent of the results come from 20 percent of the work (e.g. 80 percent of your revenue comes from 20 percent of your clients).
But when it comes to our food choices, here’s what the 80/20 rule means.
Aim for 100 percent and it will land you about 80 percent. And 80 percent is usually good enough.
But here’s how I’ve noticed the 80/20 being used — or should I say, abused – much of the time.
Aim for 80 percent and justify any or all “cheats” as the 20 percent buffer. In all likelihood, this strategy will land you somewhere around 60 percent. And 60 percent won’t create the results you’re looking for.
