Pareto was on to something when he said that 80% of our results come from just 20% of our effort. Just a small amount of cause creates extraordinary results... like a huge invisible lever to achieve results with purpose and peace! When we do the INTENTIONAL RIGHT THINGS we almost invariably accomplish more than by wantonly wasting time working 13 hour days and losing sleep. AND definitely more than worrying!
Isn't it the case the majority of us accomplish much more from OUR FOCUSED EFFORT on the RIGHT THINGS than from doing the same things over and expecting different results? And these can't be other people or companies RIGHT THINGS. Just doesn't work! Instead they must be OUR RIGHT THINGS.
THE PROBLEM: How do you know? .... what 20% "right things" to focus on that is? How can you be sure that by doing THESE things...you can achieve breakthrough results? How can you be sure if you're focused on the best 20%? Most companies AND people never really know! Most don't do the vital thinking that can change everything! Just think: if 4 out of 5 thoughts we think are the same thoughts we thought yesterday, we may just be hard-wired to keep doing the same stuff with the same results.
So, what might you do to find the best 20% regularly?
Here are 5 ways to FOCUS and find those best things. I've already seen these principles work for me and others in dramatic ways.

Recently I started facilitating a group with other entrepreneurs where we each share the ONE THING we will THAT DAY to advance our purpose. We do it over the internet and hold each other accountable to 1. Decide our "one thing" and 2. Complete it. It's both life-giving and incredibly satisfying!
I've seen this concept come to life. 30 Days of FOCUS

First getting your message out means being able to answer these two key questions:
What is your message?
Who most needs to know our message?
Then, we must then know how we will deliver the good news. And yes, it's now officially overwhelming to possess more channels to get our message out then an old style TV! So little time, so many ways to post, tweet, message, vlog and blog! Can we really utilize all of these and do them well? If not, which ones should we focus on? Yes, we all require a website in today's world of messaging. But how about just choosing 3 from this list and deciding to become GREAT at those three? (Maybe 4 max!)
Give this some thought... which three will you use to get your message out?
