Eisenhower Matrix

Make a 2x2 grid with 2 axis - Important and Urgent. This is how you treat the four quadrants...

  • Important and Urgent / Crisis: Do it now
  • Important, Not Urgent / Quality: Schedule for later
  • Unimportant but Urgent / Deception: Delegate it
  • Unimportant and Not Urgent / Waste: Cancel or defer it

Urgency Matrix

This is a Mental Model to make immediate decisions.
