Quadrant 1, “Do”
• Items that are important and urgent.
These are the tasks that have a strict, very close time limit.
•Emergencies, pressing issues
•A very close deadline
Something you’ve been putting off and now you’re in a rush to finish it.
Quadrant 2 , “Decide”
Items that are important, but not urgent.
The second quadrant is for items that bring you long-term
benefit, but have the perk of not being urgent.
Quadrant 3, “Delegate” .
The items in this quadrant are urgent but unimportant
Normally, these are the tasks that you delegate to others. Examples:
•Phone calls and text messages
Quadrant 4, “Eliminate”
• The items are unimportant and not urgent.
The final quadrant contains tasks or obligations that are not in any way
important. They have very little to no long-term benefit for your career,
life or health.
