Look at the chart above, we divide tasks to four categories on the urgent/important dimensions. Let's look at each category:
- Not urgent and important - this is where you (and most successful companies) should spent your time. This means investing in infrastructure, making your process more efficient ...
- JFDI. However if you find that most of your time is spent there - you're doing something wrong.
- Don't bother.
- This is the big time sucker. Try to avoid at all cost.
Note: "If everything is important, then nothing is." - Patrick Lencioni
