Use the Eisenhower Box

A highly effective framework for setting priorities.

Tasks are classified into one of four boxes.

  • You want to first focus on Important and Urgent tasks
  • Tasks that are Important but not Urgent should be scheduled in your calendar. 
  • Urgent but Not important duties should be delegated when possible. 
  • Assignments that are Neither Important or Urgent should be eliminated from your to-do list completely.

By prioritizing tasks this way, you’ll allow yourself to really focus on the important things without becoming distracted.
