Now we want to look closely at our typical daily activities and place them in one of four categories described below:
I’ll bet you will find (if you are truly honest with yourself) that many of the activities you spend your time with are urgent but not important. It’s important to plan your days/weeks so that you are running your day and your day is not running you. If you do not do a good job planning, you will end up just “putting out the nearest fire” all day and find that you are rarely as productive as you would like to be. If you take the time to consistently plan each week(and work on spending as much time as possible in the Important but not Urgent category), you will find that you are not only spending your time in optimal ways, but you are also proactively putting out those fires that tend to pop up all day. (forgot key ingredient for tonight’s dinner, overdue library books or bring forgotten cleats for practice)
That naturally leads us to the next step; what is important to us? For each, that answer is different but what do you want to be spending your time doing?
