Setting Priorities with the Eisenhower Box

Do you ever feel overwhelmed thinking about the different things you have to do? It’s normal to feel overwhelmed sometimes, but writing down your responsibilities can help you figure out how to tackle them.

One method for writing down your responsibilities and organizing them is called an Eisenhower Matrix. Click here to watch a video about this method and how you can use it to  set your priorities.

Using the Eisenhower Matrix involves identifying which responsibilities are urgent (need to be done right away) and which are important (contribute to your long-term goals). Things that are urgent and important should be done as soon as possible. If something is less urgent, pick a time you can do it later. If something is not urgent or important (like responding to texts or your Snapchat streaks), you can delete it from your to-do list to feel less stressed.
