MG and HE tackle this powerful and common question from a number of vantage points, starting with the late, great Dr. Stephen Covey and his all-important "Effectiveness Quadrant".
Martin shares that by drawing out this diagram yourself it can provide a very basic and visual framework for anyone to organize those things in their life that are IMPORTANT but NOT urgent. And, addressing those consistently is the KEY to effectiveness.
The challenge for most of us is that we spend so much time in the "URGENT" and "IMPORTANT" quadrant, which is Quadrant #1. And ultimately, we begin to confuse "busyness" for effectiveness and then, unfortunately the really import work we need to be addressing is neglected.
Henry uses the example of personal goals and how it is that we must be able to add a sense of urgency to those projects that are most important to us but lack a sense of urgency. Then both MG and HE get into various techniques, strategies and tools to use to help anyone be more proactive and to knock off those Quadrant II items!!! (some tools in links below!)
