There is a way to relax, enjoy life and achieve your dreams. In Living the 80/20 Way: Work Less, Worry Less, Succeed More, Enjoy More (the original and provocative sequel to The 80/20 Principle), Richard Koch shows step-by-step how to harness the power of the 80/20 Principle to make a good life and not just a living. Living the 80/20 Way applies Koch's less is more and more with less philosophies; ultimately, enabling you to obtain work you enjoy, to build stronger relationships with family and friends, and to harness money issues. A self-made millionaire and best-selling author, Koch pioneered the idea that we can achieve more if we focus on the few things that matter to us most as unique individuals. Here he makes immensely practical the proven 80/20 lifestyle he practices himself and has helped millions of others achieve. Now each of us has the power to work less, fulfill our passions, create new wealth and thrive amidst increasing choices and chaos by living the 80/20 way.
