Urgency and Importance

For decades, Time Management experts have been advising to view their tasksĀ in terms of factors – how important they are, and how urgent they are.

This same principle can be applied to the information we deal with in our life.

If you are getting dozens of e-mails a day, how to you determine which ones require the most attention?

How Important Is It?

  • A year from now, how significant will this be?
  • Will it affect me long term?

How Urgent Is It?

  • Do I have to deal with this now?
  • What are the consequences of putting it off until later?
