Dear Friends,

JAI Hind!


To Make Others Happy Should Be Our Duty: That is 80/20 Principle.

We had the benefit of study of the management science. In many respects. The management science, as we know, has been in practice in the armed forces for long.

Field Marshall Charles Montegomary had said, “In order to succeed, one has to be hard-working yet of lazy nature”. The underlying principle is you must have the time to think. If you keep yourself busy all the time, you will have no time to think and plan for the future.

We had the benefit of studying—courtesy a close friend- to read the classical book on management written by Robert Schuller, titled, “Tough Time Never Lasts, Tough Men Do”.

The same friend gave me to read another classic, “The 80/20 Principle” by Richard Koch. Koch is a business entrepreneur. He was a consultant with the Boston Consulting Group. He is a self-confessed “lazy” entrepreneur and lives by the principle of 80/20.

Koch tell us about one Italian economist Vilified Pareto (1847–1923), who had propagated the “Principle of Least Effort”, that came to be known as the Pareto Law.

In the book, Koch has explained the 80/20 principle in diagrams:

George K Zipf, a Harvard professor of philology, had earlier discovered the “Principle of Least Effort”.

Koch, in his book, “Principle of 80/20, firmly asserts, Our daily living can be greatly improved by using the 80/20 principle.” This is in use in business for long and has proved to be a wonderful gospel.

At times, 80/20 principle may appear to be doing less work. That is not exactly correct. The principle of 80/20 is how to use your time the best way.

Richard Koch’s book has been a best seller. He is available at richardkoch@bitneternet.com.

Well, Friends, we feel ignorance is not always a bliss. It only hides our foolishness.

‘May be more Robert Schullers or more Richard Kochs will appear in times to come to remove our ignorance and may even motivate some youngsters to step into the shoes of Schuller or Koch.


Your sevak,
D.C. Nath
