Gear 20% of Your Efforts For Success

Yesterday, I talked about how you can use pillar concepts for great content. In recap, I have stated 7 ways in which you can write articles on your blog which can capture readers’ attention. How you utilize your time in writing them can be beneficial to your blogging business. So in order to reap the rewards of blogging profits, you want to use the least amount of time to create maximum results for what it is that you need to do.

By doing this, you batch process tasks and get more done. This is one of the terms Yaro Starak uses and of which derives from Timothy Ferriss’s book, The 4 Hour Workweek. This is also based upon the principle of the 80/20 rule of efficiency.

The 80/20 rule is a common concept found among internet marketers and business enthusiasts regarding it as a way of seeing, doing and living your life. This can be applied to running your business as well as managing your priorities. The most prominent author to have covered this principle in depth is Richard Koch. He has written over 3 books on the subject and inspired many to live the life they want without sacrificing so much.

This rule was infamously based upon the views of the Italian economist Vilfredo Paredowho predicted that

roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes

Paredo studied the Italian economy during his time and observed that the amount of contribution given by the few (20%) affected the many (80%). When you apply this rule to your life, you can see how you can get more done without wasting your maximal efforts. As mentioned earlier, Timothy Ferriss regarded this as batch processing and of which Yaro Starak practices and preaches to his students as well.

How the 80/20 Rule Can Be Applied to Blogging

Inside the Blog Mastermind program, once a student has set up a blog with their own domain name as well as host it with the latest stable version of WordPress installed, the next step is to listen to the Master the Mindset audio program. As this program is only available to members, you might want to check out the walk-through as Yaro takes you inside the member’s area here.

Consequently, the mindset program starts off with the 80/20 rule. In it Yaro Starak explains how he stumbled upon this principle and how it changed him during a time when all his peers were working hard. While Yaro was working differently and making enough to get by, somewhere in the back of his mind he was beginning to question himself if this is the right way to live. In fact, he regarded himself as lazy and as everyone around him started climbing the corporate ladder, he was enjoying his lifestyle.

Pin ItThe most important thing Yaro Starak held highly in his heart was the freedom to do what he wanted. One day, while he was browsing the book store after work, he found the book Living the 80/20 Way by Richard Koch. It gave him assurance that the way he was living wasn’t at all bad. In fact, it changed the way he thought about life and work. You can read more about it here in a post from his blog, Entrepreneur’s Journey.

When you’re living the 80/20 way, it shouldn’t be about working long hours and putting in effort of which you are paid minimum wage. It should be about delegating your tasks and handling them out to those who can help you so you can focus on what it is that matters most. As a blogger, this should be writing pillar articles and marketing to your communication channels.

Yaro Starak stresses these points and insists that you also set it in your mind to outsourceany tasks of which takes you away from your main goals and that is creating pillar content and marketing your blog.

What the 80/20 Rule Means to Me

I’m a perfectionist and technical by nature and letting go is kind of hard for me. I like to collect things and have them surround me because I like being in the company of information which makes me feel safe. Whether that is my personality or how I am, letting go of the characteristics which will make me more productive will take a little time. These habits of which I have carried on for many years are inherent in the way I do things as well as how successful I am at doing them.

The 80/20 view puts in perspective for me how my cluttered lifestyle has postponed my life’s dreams. Because I have focused so much on the details of life, the doing has been long overdue.

If I can set aside time each day to review the Blog Profits Blueprint as well as listen to the mindset audios in the Blog Mastermind program, I would soon be on my path towards blogging profits.

As consistency is key in the blogging game, six months is a long time to commit. Once, I have mastered the art of creating pillar content before I start anything else in my day, I will then have time to market and promote my blog to my communication channels. Through continuing this process day in and out, I would have build some traffic and from thereon, I will practice monetizing my blog.

The attention I get is solely based upon my effort. If I concentrate on cranking out those articles everyday and promoting my blog afterward, soon the compound effect of monetizing traffic will be within my reach. These are some core principals of which Yaro Starak teaches and coaches his students throughout the remainder of Blog Mastermind.

In applying the 80/20 rule to your blogging strategy, you can create a sound path towards profiting online.

For the next post, I’m going to explore vision. This is a lot deeper mentally as it depends on where you see yourself long-term. For bloggers, many will not see this early on their blogging career but eventually find it during the process.
