Coda: Diminishing returns

Margaret Beaton

After writing Diminishing returns, a post about how executives can work less and produce more, I came across a brilliant exposition on the same topic.

From Spain the prolific Jesus Gill Hernandez, wrote The Law of Diminishing Returns in January 2014.

Jesus captures the essence of the insight this way “The ability to recognize the point of diminishing returns and cut off further activity from that point onwards can result in a huge benefits. These benefits can manifest in the form of increased productivity, fulfillment, happiness and vitality, depending on what area you are using it in.”

I commend his whole post and associated diagram to my readers.
