My fellow animal or human, the answer is a resounding yes, or maybe just 80% of your life. Now let´s show you how it is done.
Make use of all of your brain cells, (or cell), depending on your intelligence level of course. You want to see your entire life from a third perspective. This means that you just sat down at the movie theater to watch the movie of your life, so buckle up and get some popcorn. Now, when Hollywood makes autobiographical movies, it does not really give a shit about your ride to work unless it was a high speed car chase. But it will place a lot of emphasis on action, goofy moments as well as life changing decisions, times that were absolutely joyful or sometimes heartbreaking. The author writing the script in your movie just wants to focus on the most important things, because if not your life would not sell that many tickets:
Happiness
The 20% that created 80% of your happiness
The 20% that created 80% of your sadness
Love
The 20% that have given you 80% of all the love now in your life
The 20% that you have given to 80% of all the love now in their lives
Memories
The 20% that created 80% of your special memories
The 20% that created 80% of memories worth forgetting
Success 
The 20% that accounts for 80% of your success
The 20% that accounts for 80% of your failures

As you noticed the absolutely creative screenwriter (a sloth of course), listed a positive and negative for each independent topic in the above list. Pareto is usually treated as a compass, but it is even more practical as a filter. Is not only where we should go, is also where we should not. What 20s you need more of and what 20s you need to completely eliminate.
Being a super effective sloth, we know that both elimination as well as adaptation of a new habit, have similar ranges of impact. All things being equal, let´s start with the easier implementation which in this case would be elimination. Your life at the office, where you are supposed to be living the true American Dream is the perfect place to start. Depending on the nature of your job there will be different percentages of things you like,  and things that well, would definitely not be featured on your movie. From the latter, how can we eliminate the 20% that bothers us the most?
Let´s look at 2 examples a lawyer (since they never get much love), and an Operations Manager. We will use Pareto as a filter with the lawyer scenario and as a compass in the Operational context.
Our lawyer, which in this particular case is a huge bear, (usually sharks choose this profession), is growling to the jury about his latest case. With his Winnie The Pooh charm he wins them over and feels that his life is amazing! The walk of champions inside the office is disturbed by the chimpanzee, who quickly hands him over 3 piles of paperwork. Signatures, scanning, revising, sometimes redacting sensitive information. The happy bear quickly sits down at his desk and feels more like a melted gummy bear, and feels like living life is for a lucky few. The Magic Sloth in this particular situation would do 3 things: overpay for a high speed scanner, get 2 free interns and only use DocuSign for signatures. The Magic Sloth understands the Time Value Of Money, (soon to be another post),

so he does not hesitate to pay higher for cutting down on an activity he does daily, some of the revising of his documents is tedious and repetitive so he off hands that responsibility to two chameleon interns (they would make great lawyers one day), who need the experience (degrees don´t get you jobs!). He know there are some things when doing the revisions that the interns won´t be able to solve, but The Magic Sloth takes the time to teach them to identify issues that are their responsibility and issues they have to report back. Finally the Magic Sloth knows that almost everything that is repetitive can be automated, so instead of signing and scanning documents, he scans all documents with his new supper scanner and just uses DocuSign for signatures. The Magic Sloth will still have to deal with other tedious things: lawsuits, a far commute, limited office supplies, a bad boss… However just by taking care of the 20%, paperwork in this scenario, he enjoys work and is far more effective that the bear, while still having some of the same problems.

Our Operations Manager happens to be a liger, the attitude of a tiger with the aspirations of a lion. The liger moving with his 1,000 pounds is a little intimidating. Animals, are not too fond of working with the liger, since he is always displeased, because he thinks there is a better way to do things and that leads to micromanaging. Our liger, for being so big, has become a very narrow bottleneck for the company. All projects work at his speed, which is very similar to that of a walrus in dry land. The Magic Sloth on the other case, understands that there is a possibility projects might not be done perfectly all the time, but he is pleased with something 80% as good. Animals (or people), are any company´s number one asset, so he invests in them by letting them do projects on their own, and spending his time and energy teaching everything he knows. This creates an environment in which most of the animals are confident handling complex tasks. The liger is always stressed, because all the weight rests on his shoulders creating under-performance. The Magic Sloth has almost no weight in his shoulders, because he is confident in his team.
What are of your life you want to change? Let us know in the comments. Remember that absolutely everything is possible with the 80/20 rule.
