Also known as the 80/20 principle, the observation that roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.
For products this means that 20% of your effort causes 80% of your sales; 20% of your customers cause 80% of your complaints; 20% of your marketing activities lead to 80% of your traffic.
Spending a little time working out what that 20% is can save you a lot of work and increase your success tremendously.
