Why You Should Only Put 20% Effort

Since we were kids, we’ve always been told to work extremely hard and put as much effort as you possibly can. As you grow older and your scope expands (i.e. responsibilities and experience increases), we start realising that giving 100% is a waste of time. We can impress our managers, clients, friends and family by putting 20% effort in the ‘right place’ that has the greatest emotional impact.
