The Eisenhower Method:-
The "Eisenhower Method" stems from a quote attributed to Dwight D. Eisenhower: "I have two kinds of problems, the urgent and the important. The urgent are not important, and the important are never urgent".
Using the Eisenhower Decision Principle, tasks are evaluated using the criteria important/unimportant and urgent/not urgent, and then placed in according quadrants in an Eisenhower Matrix (also known as an "Eisenhower Box" or "Eisenhower Decision Matrix"). Tasks are then handled as follows:
1 Do It Now Tasks are done immediately and personally e.g. crises, deadlines, problems.
2 Do It Later/Schedule Tasks get an end date and are done personally e.g. relationships, planning, recreation.
3 To Be Delegated Tasks e.g. interruptions, meetings, activities.
4 To be eliminated tasks e.g. time wasters, pleasant activities, trivia.
This method is said to have been used by U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
