One useful tool I use in organizing myself and understanding my work is known as the Eisenhower Productivity Matrix. Detailed in my presentation below, it divides tasks into four quadrants with two variables: urgent and important.
How do you or how might you apply these principles into your daily work?

Can you explain a little bit more what is in the urgent, but not important category?
These would be things like, scheduling interviews, booking flights, answering certain emails. Items that need to be handled, but in the grand scheme are not capital “I” important. They can be delegated.
