SHOWNOTES

Remember the days of ASAP

Sticky note on my computer to remind me

President Eisenhower’s Urgent/Important Principle identifies which tasks and activities you should focus on and which you should delegate or ignore.

Urgent means that a task requires immediate attention. These are the to-do’s that shout “Now!” 

the world will end if I do not do this now.

Urgent tasks put us in a reactive mode, one marked by a defensive, negative, hurried, and narrowly-focused mindset. 

Important tasks are things that contribute to our long-term mission, values, and goals.

Goal is to manage stress not feed it.

Reframe the task

Healthy Life Hacks

1.Ask yourself whether you can reschedule or delegate it.

2. It is appropriate to say “no” to people politely, or to encourage them to solve the problem themselves.
