All of us have different things to do in life, be it in our career or social life , personal goals, etc. Most often, we tell ourselves that we are going to put in 100% effort but we end up disappointed. This is because our brain goes into fight or flight mode and we become exhausted as its hard to do anything in such a scenario. We need breaks for everything. Nobody enjoys working all day, or doing anything all day for that matter. Without breaks, we become saturated and will not be able to give our best. This is where the importance of 85% rule arises. Whatever we are going to do, we must try to give it our 85%. This way, we can achieve the best of whatever we are doing and also with lesser effort.
85% rule is something that makes us perform better and be relaxed at the same time. This gives us enough space to take breaks so that at the end , we will be able to finish everything well with much less effort and often quicker. It is all about finding a balance between being focused and being relaxed and enjoying what it is that we do.
So let’s start applying the 85% rule in everything and get more things done in less time with the same amount of expenditure. Let's strive to feel like you are performing at a steady pace with a little room to breathe.
