A more Productive & Organized is all that most of us dream of or thinking about day and night. Hoping and wishing for ways to make life less complicated has been THE DREAM.
For many of us, it’s so hard to focus because there are too many things we want to do or get all at once. That’s why you need to learn to prioritize things.
The Eisenhower Decision Matrix is the answer you've been looking for all along.
The Eisenhower Matrix, helps you prioritize tasks by urgency and importance. Sorting out less urgent and important tasks which you should either delegate or not do at all.

In case you want to read about it:
Write down all the tasks you need to do:
Whether it's work or personal related tasks. Write all down anything that comes to your mind that needs to be done.
Divide the tasks:
Take each task and ask yourself; is it important, urgent, not important or not urgent?
How it works:
- Do It Now: Important/Urgent. Must be done now & must be done by YOU, can NEVER be delayed.
- Schedule it: Important/NOT Urgent. Done by YOU but it can be done later. So, you can just schedule it.
- Delegate it: NOT Important/Urgent. It must be done now. but, you don't have to do it yourself. So, you can delegate it to your assistant or VA.
- Erase it: NOT Important/NOT Urgent. Won't affect you if you didn't do it now & you don't have to do it yourself. So, just remove it from your tasks list & STOP WORRYING ABOUT IT.
The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule but to schedule your priorities. - Stephen Covey
