The framework is split into 4 quadrants:
There’s a quadrant to thank,
A quadrant for essential errands,
A quadrant for Work projects,
And a quadrant for Fun projects
Every month, I have a couple of projects I want to work on, both for fun and for work. I also realize there are errands that I need to complete, and people I need to thank before I go on my merry way.
At the end of each item under each category, I put a deadline (ex. end of month, by Jan 15, etc).
Once each item on my list is done, I scratch it off for the month until it’s all gone.
I start with a clean piece of paper for the next month, and rewrite whichever items I need to address again.
