Time Management Matrix by Stephen Covey – Urgent vs Important
Be efficient: Stop doing things the same way, just because you’ve always done then that way. Ask yourself if you could streamline or simplify tasks.
Opt out - the power of saying ‘no’: Saying no to be proactive- not reactive.
Set your values and goals: If tasks don't align with these then ask yourself why you’re really doing them
Forget perfection: Often near enough is good enough.
Let go of needless drama: Don't subscribe to people or situations that create drama and chaos in your life where you don't need it.
Clear the clutter: The less you have in your house, mind, schedule- the less you have to organise.
