3D Eisenhower matrix
I try to use something called the 3D Eisenhower matrix to plan my work, life and basically everything.
On top of the normal Eisenhower Matrix urgency and importance coordinates, I added a frequency coordinate and used it with the following logic.
One-time tasks are dealt the same:
- Urgent and not important => Do;
- Not urgent and important => Schedule;
- Urgent and not important => Delegate;
- Not urgent and not important => Eliminate.
Frequent tasks are handled a bit different:
- Do => Do once and automate the solution;
- Schedule => Plan as the main focus of the teams;
- Delegate => Delegate once, deep dive into the cause of the task and automate future delegation;
- Eliminate => Eliminate once, deep dive into the cause of the task and automate future elimination.
