Eisenhower Matrix – one of the most effective methods of short-term planning.
Tasks are divided into 4 categories:
A) Important and urgent – these task are very important and they need to do today in the first place. Important tasks – these are the tasks that bring you closer to your goal (deadline of the project, required a call to the client, going to the dentist in acute pain).
B) Not urgent and important – these tasks are important and which can wait with the implementation. If they do not perform in a timely manner, they are moving into the category A (foreign language learning, sports, planning).
C) Urgent and unimportant – often we confuse them with chores "A" confused importance to the urgency. It is advisable to delegate these tasks to other (meetings, to congratulate a friend on his birthday, the help of colleagues, respond to the letter).
D) Not urgent and unimportant – eaters of the time (routine work, a visit to the social. Networks, computer games, watching TV series).
Briefly, to each of the blocks such recommendations:
– Important and urgent – to avoid;
– Important and not urgent – to do;
– Urgent and unimportant – delegate;
– Not urgent and unimportant – not to do;
For each task, you can set the reminder time or by geographic coordinates. Move to a different category at a certain time, for example, when there is an urgent task becomes urgent.
