The 80/20 Rule for Managers
Vasiliy Smetanin, CEO, Dominican Republic

To organize their working process well, and to complete tasks effectively, managers use a big variety of resources including finances, social and time resources. Obviously the environment is never perfect, and your success depends on your ability to rationalize the way of using the funds available.
One important thing you should understand: being busy doesn't always lead you to your aim, the result you get depends on the QUALITY of the things you do, NOT on their AMOUNT. The way you plan your work and the tasks you include into your to-do-list can make a big difference.
