Our God of More than Enough

Written by Daniel N Brown

If you know that God loves you, cares for you, and wants to bless you, doesn't it make sense that you should believe Him for His best in your life?

Release your faith and believe Him for great things, for He is more than able and more than willing to give yourepparttar desires of your heart. Proverbs 10:24 says, "The desire ofrepparttar 147966 righteous shall be granted."

If He will give usrepparttar 147967 desires of our hearts, don't you think He will go over and beyond our basic needs?

I loverepparttar 147968 story aboutrepparttar 147969 five loaves and two fish. A multitude of people followed Jesus uprepparttar 147970 mountain to hear Him preach and He knew they were hungry. Andrew searched around for some food and found a boy with some bread and two fish. Jesus blessed it, gave it torepparttar 147971 disciples to distribute, and then it began to multiply! After all 5,000 people ate there were twelve basket fulls left over!

He's our God of more than enough.

The 80/20 Rule means that with anything -- time, resources, space, etc. -- a few (20 percent) are vital and many (80 percent) are trivial. In Pareto's case it meant 20 percent ofrepparttar people owned 80 percent ofrepparttar 147935 wealth. In Juran's initial work, he identified that 20 percent ofrepparttar 147936 defects caused 80 percent ofrepparttar 147937 problems. Here are some examples of how we can applyrepparttar 147938 80/20 rule. See if you recognize any that hold true for you.

* 80% of what you file away is never referenced again;repparttar 147939 other 20% is what you use regularly.

* 20% of your products account for 80% of product sales.

* 80% of your measurable results will come from 20% ofrepparttar 147940 items on your "to-do" list.

* 20% of your people produce 80% of your results.

* 80% of decisions come from 20% of meeting time.

* 80% of your managerial problems are caused by 20% of your problems.

* 80% of a manager's interruptions come fromrepparttar 147941 same 20% of people.

* 80% of customer complaints are aboutrepparttar 147942 same 20% of your products or services.

The value ofrepparttar 147943 Pareto Principle is that it reminds us to focus on what matters. Focus 80% of your time and energy onrepparttar 147944 20% of your work that is really important, since only 20% of your activities really matter. Those 20% produce 80% of your results. The key is to identify and focus on those things. If something isn't going to get done, make sure it's not part ofrepparttar 147945 "vital few" activities you are putting onrepparttar 147946 back burner.

Today we have more responsibilities and choices pulling at us than ever before. Consistent application of this rule will lead to dramatically improved productivity. Whilerepparttar 147947 rule is not an absolute, you can use it as a guide and reference point to ask whether or not you are truly focusing onrepparttar 147948 20% (the Vital Few), orrepparttar 147949 80% (the Trivial Many).

True progress results from a consistent focus on those top 20% of your most critical objectives. I guarantee that if you do these three things, you will break free of past limitations and experience dramatic results in your life:

* Create a list of daily or weekly rituals that will support you in attainingrepparttar 147950 milestones you want to accomplish overrepparttar 147951 next twelve months. Commit to forming new habits with these rituals.

* Carve out 96 minutes a day to focus on your most important projects or focus forrepparttar 147952 day.

* Work with an accountability partner who will support you as you form new ha
