The 80/20 Rule in my life

without comments

I wake up every morning before the kids/wife wake up and try to get a few hours of unfettered time. I use the 80/20 rule (to which I was introduced in the Four Hour Workweek) to figure out what to do.

Out of the many things I could do:

  • Pick up the house
  • Do dishes
  • Do laundry
  • Pay bills
  • Get a headstart on work

I chose doing the laundry, and if time avails, doing dishes. The reason: I’ve noticed when I’m home that if the laundry isn’t done, finding clothes takes an disproportionate amount of time. Similarly, when the kids want juice or a bagel, it’s really hard to stop and wash a cup or plate (and inneficient, too).
