The Pareto Principle says that 80% of the fruit comes from 20% of the labor. I first learned about this principle when reading 80/20 Sales and Marketing: The Definitive Guide to Working Less and Making More by Perry Marshall. This is not just a sales thing. It can be seen in nature, road traffic, and math. So, I started thinking about how this 80/20 principle applies to our homes and housework.
I know that perfection is not attainable. Instead, I've resolved to strive for excellence. What does it look like to be an excellent homemaker?
We tend to equate cleanliness with organization. We are looking for order but "cleaning" your house doesn't bring that order.
In this episode, I share with you how I have employed the 80/20 principle in my house to bring it to excellence but not perfection while also giving me time to do what I'm uniquely created to do. (Spoiler alert: We're going to talk more next week about using that extra time!)
What do 80% and excellence look like for my floors, counters/flat surfaces, laundry, and straightening/tidying in my home?
What does it mean to get to 80% in your Sunday Basket® routine and The Productive Home Solution™?
