With all of the demands placed on your time these days, it's easy to get overwhelmed. Which activities should get priority over others, when they all seem important? Here's a quick way to categorize your to-do list to effectively and efficiently meet your goals.
Write down 2 things you spent time doing in the last four days. If the task or activity didn't really have a deadline, but it helped you work toward a longer-term goal, mark it as "important." Examples include studying for an assignment, spending time on a rewarding hobby, or time with family. Mark the activity as "urgent" if it involved something like scheduling an eye exam or fixing a broken item in your house.
Oftentimes, we spend our days dealing with pressing tasks, and what really matters to us is put on the back burner. You may end each day feeling distracted and unfulfilled. When you separate “urgent” activities from the “important” ones, you become more aware of the time you need to carve out in order to achieve your goals.
