Time Management Tips

August 5, 2008 6:30pm CST
I've attended a seminar that thought me to manage my time. My trainor said that there are four types of work: 1. Urgent and Important 2. Urgent but Not Important 3. Not Urgent but Important 4. Not Urgent and Not Important Importance defines the kind of work you are doing while Urgency defines who gave you that work. We must be doing the Not Urgent but Important things to say that we are really managing are time well. when doing an Urgent and Important work, that means that you are cramming. Also, while at work, family emergencies or domestic concerns are categorized as Urgent and but not Importanr because at work, your job is your priority. 'hope you got something from this. =)

i think that's a fantastic way of organizing work that needs to be done. if i were to try and apply it to my life, i would put only a few tweaks on it, and those would be the description of urgent and important, because it doesn't quite apply to my life.

That is perfect. The four quadrants in prioritization. Often times people do have problems handling multiple tasks. This approach is really really helpful in managing them and eventually accomplishing them according to urgency and importance. Thanks for sharing it to everyone.

Thanks for the tip. It would be easier to manage time with a matrix like this. On my part, I get to manage my time well by just looking at my priorities in life. For instance, I have a two year old daughter. I work from 8 in the morning until 6 in the evening. I make sure that when I get home I leave work at work. And I make sure weekends are for my family. If I have work on Saturday for a half day, I make sure either I get my "me" time or a "We" time with my husband then the rest with my daughter.
