The Eisenhower Matrix

The Eisenhower Matrix

First, understand that not all tasks are created equal. The Eisenhower Matrix helps us divide tasks into four categories.

  1. Urgent & Important: Do 
  2. Not Urgent But Important: Schedule
  3. Urgent But Not Important: Delegate
  4. Not Urgent & Not Important: Delete

If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first.

Eat The Frog

Eat The Frog

If you want to be productive, eat the frog. This means doing your hardest task first thing in the morning. Why? Because in the morning, you have the most energy and willpower to tackle it head on.

Here's why eating the frog is important:

  • The task is likely the most important one of the day.
  • When it's knocked out early, you'll feel more accomplished and motivated to tackle the rest of your tasks.
  • By saving easier tasks for later, you'll have more energy and focus to complete them.

So don't hesitate, eat that frog first thing in the morning and watch your productivity soar! 🐸

Learn To Say "No"

Saying 'yes' to new requests or tasks feels good in the moment. It makes us feel helpful, involved, and valued.

But there's a hidden cost: your time, energy, and sometimes even your mental health.

Here's a simple truth: It's impossible to do everything.

Prioritizing means making tough choices, and often, that means saying 'no.'

Break Down Large Tasks

Break Down Large Tasks

Large tasks can feel overwhelming. However, by breaking them down into smaller, more manageable pieces, they become easier to tackle.

Here's how to do it:

  • Identify the key components of the task.
  • Divide the task into smaller, achievable subtasks.
  • Create a plan to complete each subtask.
  • Check off each subtask as it is completed.

You'll be surprised at how much more manageable the task becomes once it's broken down. 💪

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
