Avoiding Urgent Tasks

Avoiding Urgent Tasks

Urgent tasks are the ones that are not adding any value but come up to be done at that moment. The right approach is to avoid the urgent and focus on the important.

Example: Answering a phone call can seem urgent, due to its ringing, but it may not be that important.

Neglected And Important Tasks

Neglected And Important Tasks

Tasks that are important but not urgent are the most neglected. These include researching, documenting, planning and organizing.

Set aside time for important tasks, even though they don't appear urgent.
