Why we love the 80/20 rule

At Metro, we love the 80/20 rule. We do the 20% of the work that gets 80% of the results.

The 80/20 rule is 4 times more productive than the “100% rule”!

Just in case it’s not clear why, the table below illustrates.

Work done Output using 100% rule Output using 80/20 rule
20% Thing 1: Output 20 Thing 1: output 80
40% Thing 1: Output 20 Thing 2: output 80
60% Thing 1: Output 20 Thing 3: output 80
80% Thing 1: Output 20 Thing 4: output 80
100% Thing 1: Output 20 Thing 5: output 80
TOTAL Output 100 Output 80 x 5 = 400
