important vs urgent

Time management is a tricky thing. There are tasks popping up constantly through the day. Other people impose their urgency and  schedule on you. If you are constantly putting out fires and feel like you are just spinning your wheels this is for you.

Eisenhower recognized the difference between urgent and important and he acted on this. 

Enter Eisenhower

By delegating the urgent but not important, scheduling time to work on the important, and doing the tasks that are urgent and important immediately.

The easiest way to do this is to block off time to work on these types of tasks in your calendar. Protect this time, do not allow it to be the first thing to get moved when a crunch comes.

Create time to work on the important

Some urgent tasks can be tackled once and automated, for instance, bills can be put on auto-pay. If you cannot automate them, and you cannot delegate them. Then the next best thing is to schedule time to tackle them.

Build a system to deal with the urgent

If they do not work to move you closer to your dream, do not hesitate to eliminate them from your day.

What if it is not urgent or important?
