Eisenhower MatrixEisenhower Matrix
The Eisenhower Matrix or Urgent-Important Matrix is a framework that helps in prioritising tasks by urgency and importance. The matrix is divided into four :
Top being Important (I)
bottom for... suggests dropping things that are not important or urgent, but what if you want to do it? (call a random friend and check how he/she is)
It suggests delegating urgent but not-important tasks, but what if there is none to delegate? Fact is, we will be spending some time on bottom quadrant. Warikoo recommends adding a third dimension to this matrix – TIME. He recommends to build clarity on how we spend time, and understanding on which quadrant we are spending it more, and optimise it so that it is utilised on right matters.

All your tasks are not created equal. All tasks doesn't deserve your best effort.
Divide task to three types - Leverage, Neutral and Overhead. Do a great focused job if it's a leverage task. Do a ..., instead of Eisenhower.
