Have you ever felt like you’ve worked hard all day long, but at the end of the day you haven’t accomplished anything? You’re legitimately tired, but you haven’t got anything to show for it? That’s a feeling most of us are familiar with.
The problem is, we’re honestly busy running from here to there, but we don’t spend time working on specific projects, tasks, or goals we set for ourselves. So what happened?
We got carried away spending our time on urgent things that weren’t important.
But how can that be? If it’s urgent it must be important, right?
That’s the trouble with urgent things: The feeling of urgency makes us think they’re important.
But don’t worry, there’s an amazing way to look at a task and add clarity to it so you can tell just what you want to do with it, instead of letting it have its way with you!
It’s called the Eisenhower Matrix.
