Episode 41: The 4 Quadrants of Time Usage
“Time waits for no man,” is an old English saying. And frankly, we probably keep saying old sayings because they are true! As Zig Ziglar said, “We all get the same amount of time as the average billionaire.” But the difference is, some of use our time better than others. This episode builds on Episode 39, where we discussed the difference between “urgent” and “important.” Once we grasp this crucial distinction, we can take the next step to understand the Four Quadrants of Time Usage: 1. Important and Urgent, 2. Important but not Urgent, 3. Urgent but not Important, and 4. Not Urgent and not Important. Understanding this can help you plan and use your time more effectively, avoid wasting time, and take your effectiveness to the next level. Plus, learn which SINGLE WORD can help you most boost your effectiveness!
Word of the Day: Quadrant: (n.) each of 4 parts of a circle or space (Note: the stem “quad” means 4, as in squad, quadricep, and quadruplets.
