The 80/20 principle is one of the great secrets of highly effective people and organizations.
Did you know, for example, that 20 percent of customers account for 80 percent of revenues? That 20 percent of our time accounts for 80 percent of the work we accomplish? The 80/20 Principle shows how we can achieve much more with much less effort, time, and resources, simply by identifying and focusing our efforts on the 20 percent that really counts.

Audio outsells print, sort of
MarketWatch, an on-line business site owned by Dow Jones & Co, posted an article earlier this year claiming that audiobooks are outselling print versions. On some books. But not all books. Some authors have experienced sales of their audiobook exceeding the print version by as much as four times.
Jeremy Ohshan, the author of the article offered his thoughts on why audio would be more popular than print. I have an idea, too. With the advent of the ereader, many authors have targeted that market for promoting their work. Audiobook popularity has risen with the immersion reading options of moving from audio-to-ebook-to-audiobook.
Authors can make their books available in print through Amazon’s print-on-demand option, but most give minimal effort in attracting print buyers. What is marketed is what sells and audiobooks and ebookssoon outsell print verions. On some books. But not all books.
Mercy Street – A Review
Last month I read Mercy Street (Just 99 cents), a contemporary tale set in Melbourne, Australia, written by Tess Evans.
Reminiscent of A Man Named Ove ($11.99), the book revolves around George, a lonely, widowed pensioner whose life is saved by Angie, a 19-year-old mother. Feeling indebted to her, George consents to Angie and her 5-year-old daughter Rory staying with him when they hit a rough patch.
George’s life takes on a new purpose when he assumes the roll of Rory’s Poppy, providing security that she has never had in her nomadic short life.
Throughout the story of George and Rory, we learn of George’s life with his wife Pen and the life he imagined they would have.
Ms. Evans’ novel is tender and touching, giving a vivid picture of the life many young children lead. Secondary characters give life to the book – a bossy sister; a sympathetic friend at the pub and neighbors on Mercy Street who support George and Rory.
I enjoyed this emotional story and recommend it for summer reading. I paid $1.99, but you can buy it for only 99 cents today.

If you said advertising, think again. People don’t listen to advertisements, they listen to their peers. But why do people talk about certain products and ideas more than others? Why are some stories and rumors more infectious?
