The Eisenhower Matrix

This is a PDF article outlining the use & the advantages of the Eisenhower matrix.

Feeling overwhelmed by the tasks we need to carry out within a day is a very common feeling. There are several ways to avoid this and achieve great productivity on the workplace.

This article will walk you through the steps to take when implementing the Eisenhower Matrix – one of the most widely used techniques to stay on top of things!

“What is important is seldom urgent and what is urgent is seldom important” , said Dwight David Eisenhower. Facing the need to juggle political and military duties, the 34th President of the United States introduced the eponymous matrix, with the aim of distinguishing 4 different types of tasks:
- Important and urgent tasks;
- Unimportant but urgent tasks;
- Important but not urgent tasks;
- Unimportant and non-urgent tasks.

Advantages of this method:

1. Applying this task to both personal and professional duties,
2. Better managing and organising your time,
3. Becoming more realistic as to what you need to get done by the end of the day,
4. Facilitating the decision-making process.

The article includes other useful tips that can help improving your productivity and time-management skills.
