Got lots of things on your 'to do' list and not sure where to start? Or perhaps you're a team leader and want to help your team organise their time?

The Eisenhower Decision Matrix

The Eisenhower Decision Matrix can be a helpful way to think about tasks on your 'to do' list by categorising them based on importance and urgency. 

Urgent tasks are those that require immediate attention and would have direct implications if they weren't completed ASAP. 

Important tasks are things that contribute to long-term goals, but aren't typically urgent. These tasks often require more research and thought. 

The matrix is divided up into four quadrants, encouraging you to focus on urgent and important tasks and reconsider those that are less important and/or urgent. 

You can find out more information about each quadrant here    or download the worksheet below and give it a go!
