We dig into how to focus on the 40% of the effort that allow us to achieve 96% of the result.
The questions to ask to determine what the 20% is that provides 80% of the results.
I asked Frank how to decide what to systematize. This is a difficult question, Frank shares a story to bring clarity and to help us focus on what’s most important. We also talk about what we should not automate.
How do we get over the hurdle of time it takes to create a system? Don’t focus on the ROI, (return on investment) instead have time blocks to put the systems in place that allow you to hit your key goals. You also need to remove the mental fatigue of handling issues.
