80/20 in Relationships  

I have been reading a book as I am working on this, The 80/20 Principle.  The premise is that we get the most benefit in anything we do from a small number of things that are done: 20 % of what we do leads to 80 % of what we achieve.  It occurs to me that the principle likely applies to relationships as well.  A key question then is what are the important things to do that create the most benefit for the relationships?  A commonality I see in many failing relationships is a switch of priority from the connection in the relationship to something else: kids, job, etc.  So it seems to me making connection in relationship a priority is one of the things that makes the biggest impact.  Just my thoughts.  I’m interested in yours.  Let me know if you agree and send me your ideas about keys that make big differences in relationships to
