The familiar old bell curve is the wrong curve to be paying attention to in business.
There’s a different curve that gives you a far more powerful way to look at the world. It’s the 80/20 Curve.
Perry Marshall illustrates this and shows why almost everything meaningful that you can measure in business is actually on the 80/20 Curve, not the old bell curve. (The extremes are where all the productivity actually comes from.)
Also: What the 80/20 Curve teaches us about entering new markets. Namely, the ease at which you can go get a new customer, how to get market share, and what happens once your share of the market exceeds 20%.
