20% 0f the book 16x is taught about the 20-80 (80-20) principle. What the book 16x teaches us about eight really simple innovations. They are:
1) Tracing the history of 16x; is the history about how to make something 16 times better, with little effort.
2) The amazing math of the 80/20; is about the Pareto principle.
3) Space for innovation; making space for your innovations
4) Focus; is about Focusing on the important things.
5) Defy the tyranny of routine; how to make a good routine for you.
6) Doing it YOUR way; is about telling you to do things your way
7) Recruit the support of potent allies; is about some allies to work with
8) Recycle the world’s best ideas; is about, if you have a bad idea, then recycle it or turn it into a good idea
With the 80/20 principle, it is usually 20% of the effort that is 80% of the work done, for example; 20% of the carpet gets 80% of the ware, 20% of book gets 80% of the ware, and so on…
Some people say that it is the 80-20 principle or rule and other people say that it is the 20-80 principle or rule, any way they both are the same principle, and I do mind it said either way. To put the 20-80 principle (80-20 or also known as the Pareto principle) in simplest form, is 20% of effort of something or someone is 80% success/work/time of something or whatever. If you search up the 20-80 rule, 80-20 rule, and the Pareto principle you will find out that they all have the same meaning, and they might be on a completely different page (not in tab form, but looking differently like the colour white and black).
