A simple solution for more hours in the day. ⏰

If you could use more time to bring your beautiful creative dreams to life, here’s a quick question for you:

Have you heard of the Pareto Principle?

Also known as the 80/20 Rule – as in we get 80% of our results from 20% of our efforts.

Well, what if I told you that I have a simple tip for tapping into this kind of time-saving magic?

It’s a little trick I learned (the hard way!) that takes mere moments but can save hours or even days and weeks of wasted effort pursuing things that are doomed to failure or destined for disappointing results.

Would you be interested in having an inkling – in advance – about which efforts, projects and ideas are more likely to succeed, so you waste less time and energy on the frustrating flops?

If you’d like to learn the way I access the power of the Pareto Principle and apply the 80/20 rule in my creative adventures and life in general, you can read the full story here:

the insight that saves me hours of time every week

Also prevents frustration, angst & heartache

What I love about this tip is that it not only saves precious time and creative energy, it also prevents a good deal of unnecessary angst around failed attempts and lacklustre outcomes.

It also has a rather potent bonus side-effect that will serve you in all aspects of your life. 🌟

So if you’d like to discover this triple-whammy of beneficial goodness, my All-Time Top Time-Saving Tip is waiting for you over on the blog.

And if you decide to give it a go, I would LOVE to hear how it goes for you!

Wishing you a happy and creative week,
