The Pareto principle for volunteering

Windermere Prep dog mascot, Willow
Yesterday morning, during an 8-mile run…ran past the High School administration office. Willow (the dog), is the Headmaster’s pet.


The Pareto principle for volunteering is interesting.

Refresher: 80% of the results come from 20% of the effort. Another example, 80% of sales come from 20% of the sales team.

First thing in the morning, volunteered to be in a (new to the high school) parent focus group in the morning (90 minutes).

Mid-afternoon, volunteered to meet (and mentor) a former Disney Institute colleague (75 minutes).

Neither time total above includes travel time or preparation thinking time.

Something Magical happened between the two events. It’s at the ‘Next Blog’ hyperlink below…
