Track your todos with the Eisenhower matrix and do the important stuff
Created by -
The Eisenhower matrix, also known as the time management matrix - is a simple way of prioritizing activities based on two dimensions.
Instead of keeping every todo item in a single giant list and then struggling to figure out what actually needs to be done now and what can wait, the Eisenhower matrix forces you to think about what's actually important.
The template has four columns that represent the four quadrants. A todo item can either be urgent or not urgent. A todo item can also either be important or not important. Urgency refers to how time sensitive it is and importance refers to how much impact it will have if done.
Here are some examples of each of the four quadrants in the matrix:
The bullet journal template has two main sections, the calendar, and the monthly '⏳ Future' sections.
The calendar - A long list of months with each month containing the days for that month. You'll add your tasks, notes and events under each day.
The future logs - Each month has a '⏳ Future' section that serves as a placeholder for activities that should be completed during that month but do not yet have a specific date.
The monthly log allows you to view all the events for a given month. You create this view by clicking on the bullet for the current month and then clicking on the star ⭐️ to save that view in the left hand sidebar.
The daily log allows you to quickly jump to today and work on the day's tasks and events, and add notes. You create this view by searching for 'Today' in the menu bar and then clicking on the star ⭐️ to save that view in the left hand sidebar.
