In Episode #62 of The Success Talk Show podcast, “Learning to Say ‘No’ with Ease & Confidence,” you’ll hear a reference to “The Time Matrix.”

You can download this one-page PDF of The Time Matrix here.

Every activity that consumes your time falls into ONE of these 4 quadrants:

Q1 – “Important” and “Urgent”

Q2 – “Important” and “Not Urgent”

Q3 – “Not Important” and “Urgent”

Q4 – “Not Important” and “Not Urgent”

Learning to say “no” is crucial to  spending as much time as possible in Quadrant 2, where your focus is “Extraordinary Productivity!”
