Task creation

Task states

  • Go through the tasks in the Do section, then the Decide section, then Delegate

Use Eisenhower matrix to determine task importance/urgency

  • Tasks that are not important/not urgent are moved to the backlog
  • Tasks that are not important/urgent are delegated to someone else
  • Tasks that are important/not urgent should be scheduled
  • Tasks that are important/urgent should be done ASAP

  • Unprioritized tasks should be moved to Queued, given their priority compared to already queued tasks
  • You should attempt to keep the Unprioritized tasks count to 0
  • A task that is Queued should have a deadline date
  • Work on tasks In progress first, then take tasks from Today, then from Queued
