Eisenhower Matrix: Time Management. As I recently changed my job, I faced a wide set of new challenges; the most for my was to change approach to my time.
The comfort zone
Time after Time
Eisenhower Matrix: Time Management. In fact, I soon discovered that all projects and actions were deeply customer oriented: this means that due dates are the milestone, and that all projects must flow at same time and at same speed. I learned how to jump from task to task, even with completely different topics. Planning, something I was not so good with, became a priority for me and for my customers.
The Eisenhower Matrix
- Decision-making: we need to learn to take decision and to be focused and oriented to our main goals
- Empowerment: some tasks need to be delegated, thus we need to trust our team, they should feel empowered about expected actions
- Planning: we need to be sure that what is not urgent, will be scheduled in the future, accurate tracking is necessary to avoid forgetting
- Discipline: following this process as a routine will take a while, it is important to be consistent in trying to classify our tasks every time we have a new action on the list
- Important and Urgent —> Just do it
- Important, not Urgent —> Schedule it
- Urgent, not Important —> Delegate it
- Not important, not urgent —> Delete it
Time is on my side
