Recently, I explained how I implemented zero inbox and started capturing tasks in todoist. By pushing all of my tasks to one place, I cut down on the burden context-switching.
However, this new approach has created a new problem: a ballooning to-do list. Now, I must find a better way manage these tasks.
Fortunately, this article in the Harvard Business Review reminded me of the classic Eisenhower/Covey matrix for prioritizing tasks.
My adaptation of the task prioritization matrix from Eisenhower, Covey, and the HBR article.
|More urgent||Less Urgent|
|More important||Do it now||Schedule it soon|
|Less important||Divide & conquer, or delegate||Delete it, say “No,” or toss|
it in the “someday” folder
I’ll let you know how it goes.
