You've probably all heard time management techniques that talk about mentally thinking about (or writing out) your activities that fall into these four quadrants.
The things that are:
- urgent and important
- urgent but not important
- important but not urgent
- not important and not urgent
But how do you determine what's important? We have found that creating a family mission statement is really helpful in determining priorities. It becomes the filter for how we consider which things we should pursue doing in life, and which things we need to let go of.
Now it's your turn. How do you find a balance between the urgent and important? What things do you want to prioritize spending more time on? What is your family mission statement?
