We ask Generation T listers to tell us a productivity tip they swear by that, on the surface, might seem counter-intuitive—or in some cases downright crazy.
Live and breathe the 80/20 rule:
Gillian Tee, co-founder of Homage
“Knowing that a vast minority of your activities accounts for a vast majority of your results helps me be aggressively selective about what I spend time on and what Homage invests in. Too often, we spend excessive time executing and too little time planning and strategising.
Internalising this Pareto Principle helps me to be very intentional on triaging my time and resources, particularly when I’m looking for specific outcomes in an optimised amount of time. This is particularly fundamental as time is a constrained resource that once lost, can never be repurchased.”
