Exercise: Time Management Grid

The Time Management Grid focuses on two main factors relating to time management: urgency and importance.

The left-hand side of the grid is for very urgent tasks, the right-hand side is for less urgent tasks. The top of the grid is for very important tasks, the bottom is for less important tasks.
