The 25-50-25 rule says that you must divide your time as follows:
- No more than 25 percent of your time studying - i.e., reading books, attending workshops, listening to instructional CDs in your car.
- No more than 25 percent of your time observing - watching what successful people are already doing.
- At least 50 percent of your time actually DOING the thing you are studying and observing.
