Episode 40

Using the 80/20 rule in our art practice /40

As of July 2023, we won't be posting new episodes but you can connect with Bec & Michele and continue the conversation via the links below.


A couple of good hours in the studio has totally turned Bec around on how stuck she was feeling two episodes ago… This leads to a conversation about the 80/20 rule also known as the Pareto Principle, which shows how focusing our attention and/or effort on the right area (usually a smaller part of what we’re trying to do) can yield much better returns.

This rule can be applied in so many different ways—Michele and Bec talk about narrowing our art focus for greater satisfaction, editing work for greater impact, and honing in on the ‘gold zone’ when we are in the studio.
