  1. Hey guys,
    Love this episode (& the podcast in general)! I have been trying to find a way to properly action 80/20 and found the concept of 80/20 questions & tools really helpful.
    I think I will try to build checklists of 80/20 questions and tools for common situations that pop up (e.g. training for a particular sport, writing an article, completing study tasks, meal planning, applying for new job)!
    Thanks again!

  2. Hearing how 80/20 can influence your entire life is really eye-opening. I used to think of it as just another trick I can use on myself at work. Congrats, guys!
