A conversation about prioritization of tasks

Zafri Zawawi There are like more than 20 over things in my ‘To Do List’ as of current… and I am having trouble to figure which one is ‘urgent’ and which one is ‘important’… panic mode ON..!
 Rosihan Juara Baharuddin important doesn’t necessarily be urgent for example the baby formula is finishing in two days time. however if you wait for two days before buying it, then when it is totally finish, buying the baby formula becomes urgent and importan
 Rosihan Juara Baharuddin as for not urgent and not important is the baby’s toys because he/she has plenty
 Rosihan Juara Baharuddin as for urgent not important is the call to the pediatrician to book the baby’s quarterly jabs. If you don’t call now to book it, the doctor’s slot might just be taken up. So it is urgent to call now to book however it is not important yet to do the jab now.
 Rosihan Juara Baharuddin urgent & important: do do, die die must do now if not u r a gonner. urgent but not important is something u need to do now but will only be important later. not urgent but important is something u need to pay attention to now but doesn’t have to do it now. while not urgent & not important is a nice to have and you can do it when you have the free time.

Zafri Zawawi Ahh, thanks coach, greatly appreciated… my mind is almost going bonkers at the moment… prioritise! prioritise!

Zafri Zawawi Truly they have… now before I go to bed, at least I have an idea where to slot in those 20 over things in my to do list… yang buat dia jadi banyak sebab previously I put them all in on same basket… ie: All Urgent…

 Rosihan Juara Baharuddin The 1st priority is to do the urgent and important. The 2nd priority is to do the urgent but not important because it requires you attention now. The 3rd priority is the one that is important but not urgent because it requires you attention but not now. Time is of the essence when prioritizing. The 4th priority is the not urgent and not important.
