You may or may not have heard of the Pareto Principle by Vilfredo Pareto, but chances are somewhere along the way you'll of heard of the 80/20 rule?
If not, don't worry it's a super easy concept to get your head around; 80% of the consequences stem from 20% of the causes (Chappelow, 2019
1) 80% of your results occur because of 20% of the actions you take.
2) 80% of the actions you take only lead to 20% of your results.
That last one is a bit of a hard pill to swallow...
Especially as us lady entrepreneurs have a unique tendency to obsess over the 80% of things we tell ourselves are important but aren't...
Thankfully, this means that you can literally stop doing 80% of everything you're doing right now and it won't affect how successful your business is.
It won't lose you sales.
It won't lose you followers.
It won't make you irrelevant.
What it will do, is free up your time to focus on the 20% that matter.
JUST the 20% that matter.
Well at least until you've climbed out of the emotional rabbit hole and once again thrown back the curtain of overwhelm.
Once you're feeling back to your confident, courageous and care-free self, then feel free to pile on the 80% you love to do.
