More than 50 years earlier Dwight David Eisenhower observed, “The more important an item, the less likely it is urgent, and the more urgent an item, the less likely it is important.” Eisenhower’s oft-imitated system of personal time-management divided tasks into four categories. Urgent-important items were dealt with immediately. Urgent-unimportant items were delegated. Not urgent-important items were entered into a calendar. Not urgent-unimportant items were minimized or eliminated.
A fascinating look at the history of productivity and time management. Well worth the time for anyone even mildly interested in the subject. Veritable porn for those of us who are.
