Here's a great tool to help you prioritise you tasks

The Eisenhower Decision Matrix is a great tool for prioritising your day and its very simple to use!  

The tool derived from Dwight D. Eisenhower who is quoted to have said "I have two kinds of problems, the urgent and the important. The urgent are not important, and the important are never urgent."

The method calls for you to simply organise your tasks into four categories:
  • Urgent & Important
  • Important but not Urgent
  • Urgent but Not Important
  • Not Important and Not Urgent
This tool helps you focus your time on the important tasks, the tasks that will provide you with the most return on investment, instead of spending your time on tasks that are urgent but aren't going to advance you forward.

Here's a great little video to learn more about the Eisenhower Decision Matrix.
