Because Home Matters

I talk a LOT about things that MATTER!

In fact, I’m so steeped in this “Things that Matter” stuff that I named my real estate firm¬†Pareto Realty¬†because “Pareto” is representative of the Pareto Principle (AKA the 20/80 Principle).

In simplest terms, The “Vital Few” (20%) represent accomplishment of the majority of the results . . . while the “Trivial Many” (80%) don’t.

This disproportionate “share” of results is representative in all things and once we fully understand this principle, we can become FAR more effective and efficient in our day-to-day activities because PRIORITIZING our choices suddenly boils down to a very simple self-dialogue:

Does this choice MATTER enough to require “Vital Few” attention?

If not, then perhaps it’s not a high priority and can be “tabled” til it is.

There are entire books written about this principle (and about things that matter), so I’ll cease my proselytizing banter and get to the point of this post.

It’s very important to me in my personal and business life to work with People and companies who “Get” the Pareto Principle at a high level and practice a “Vital Few” discipline in everything they do. This may mean paying a little more, but it’s worth it because I can hire them secure in the knowledge that they’ll do things RIGHT and ON TIME . . . and they understand the value of a long term relationship.

There’s a company here in Nashville that offers a nice example:
