You know the 80/20 Rule? Well, I've discovered a new 20/20 rule.

You're probably familiar with the Pareto Principle 80/20 rule. It says that 80% of your results comes from 20% of your efforts (or clients etc.). It's used to help streamline processes and I've worked with big firms that use it like Sikorsky Aircraft and United Technologies.

My new 20 / 20 Principle says that after 20 years of working on something, it takes you 20 minutes to get done what would have taken you 80 times that 20 years ago. It's amazing what practice and time can do for you. So it turns out time really IS on your side. Now what are you gonna do with that 80% of your time you've got left?
