To improve efficiency, there are efforts one can make to improve time-usage. Make a list and categorize tasks as either urgent or important. This is called the Eisenhower Principle, where tasks are listed in highest to least priority: urgent and important; important but not urgent; important but not urgent; not important or urgent. Delegating tasks can also help reduce your workload. Finally, reflecting on the past week can help to improve and develop the skills of prioritization and delegation.
“First thing’s first – write it all down! You can even try downloading apps for to-do lists on your phone, or use an online service that can sync on all your devices and even your email inbox. Mark tasks as important, urgent, both, or neither.”
