The 80/20 Rule
Starting today I want to break the rules.
The ones that say we spend 80% of our time doing the “extra” things
And only 20% on the thing we were born to do
80 on the minutiae, the “declared” important by the somebody said so’s
20 on the divine gift that was placed in us from the get go
Giving yourself permission to spend time cultivating the gift within gives those around you permission to do the same for themselves.
We never know in life who is waiting to see if we are going to reach for our star or settle for the status quo of urgent but not important.
Your child? Your spouse? Your best friend?
They may need for you to take that leap of faith as much as you need it yourself.
They may need for you to leave off the “vital few and trivial many” that eat up the hours and instead choose to follow your bliss.
Often times we worry that we might be considered selfish for following our dreams, letting other things go in order to do that one thing that calls to our heart.
Author J.K. Rowling of Harry Potter fame is rumored to have said that while she was writing the first book that she lived in absolute rubbish–the writing, her gift, taking precedence over the more mundane details of living. I think if she had spent 20 percent of her time on the “vital few” and 80 on the “trivial many” that we probably would have never known about Hogwarts School and Lord Voldemort. (400 million books later……!)
80 and 20
It may be time to flip the numbers around in our lives:))
