The Eisenhower Matrix is one of the most popular time management tools that is used by many people around the world: from ordinary hired workers and middle managers to executives of large firms and world-famous corporations.
The founder of this matrix is the 34th US President Dwight David Eisenhower. As it is easy to understand, this man was very busy and had to perform many various activities related to his presidential obligations. For this reason, he was optimizing his work schedule and a list of tasks that should be performed. The result of his research was the matrix, following this it was considered by us.
The essence of the Eisenhower matrix is, mainly, to learn how correctly distribute all of affairs, to distinguish important from urgent, not urgent from the least important, and also to shorten the time for engaging in any business, the implementation of which does not yield any significant results. Let's talk about how it all works in practice.
The essence of the Eisenhower matrix
The Eisenhower matrix is four quadrants, based on two axes - the axis of importance (vertically) and the axis of urgency (horizontally). As a result, it turns out that each quadrant is different for its quality indicators. In each of the quadrants all tasks and deeds are recorded, thanks to which an extremely clear and objective picture of what should be done in the first place is formed, than - in the second, and what not to do at all.
The very simply tool, but still perfect for busy people in modern rush time.
