President Eisenhower discovered a clever trick he used to chop down to-do’s like a lumberjack with an axe.
Meet the Decision Making Matrix.
It goes like this:
You draw a box, cut into four smaller squares.
Above your box, write IMPORTANT
To the left of the box, write URGENT
Here’s where it gets interesting:
Now you have four boxes…
1 – urgent and important
2 – urgent not important
3 – important not urgent
4 – not important not urgent
Everything you’ve ever done, and will ever do, falls into one of these 4 boxes
This is huge.
You see, the problem is, most folks don’t make time for box 3. Important but not urgent
This is stuff like:
1. your passions
2. playing with your kids
3. going for a hike at sunrise
You don’t have a deadline on this stuff -
…so for most people, it never happens.

Say no to meetings.
Leave a few emails unanswered.
When you finally have a hot bod – you’ll be glad you did.
