#420. Dad, what is the Eisenhower Matrix?

The Eisenhower Matrix, also known as the Urgent-Important Matrix, is a powerful tool for sorting tasks based on their urgency and importance. Tasks are categorized into four quadrants:

  • Urgent and important: Tasks that require immediate attention. Handle these promptly.
  • Important, but not urgent: Tasks that contribute to long-term goals. Schedule these for later.
  • Urgent, but not important: Tasks that can be delegated or minimized. Delegate these whenever possible.
  • Not urgent and not important: Low-priority tasks. Eliminate or minimize these to focus on higher-value work.
