If your to-do list is getting longer and longer and you don’t know where to start, you feel like me and I’m sure like many others out there.
What could be helpful for you is a better system to prioritize your tasks, like a decision support for what to do next.
To make better and easier decisions and to focus on the right things, the Eisenhower Matrix is a good method. It’s said that it was invented by the 34th president of the USA (guess his name 😉) and helped him to evaluate decisions based on importance and urgency on a daily basis.
Now you may not be a president, but you’re supposed to set big goals, so today we’re going as high as we can 😉.
- Do first
- Don’t do
By dividing your tasks into these four points and determining what you have to do, what you should do later, and which tasks you can delegate to others, you get rid of endless lists.
In addition, you also specify what you are not going to do. This is very important, because you eliminate these issues from the beginning, instead of carrying them around with you all day, knowing that you won’t get to them anyway! ✅
