EISENHOWER-NOTION: The Popular Eisenhower Method, Now In Notion.so

By StuffBySpencer | Spencer's Stuff | 3 Jun 2019


👋 hey hey everyone! I've got a great little freebie for you all today! :^)

If you've never heard of the popular productivity hack called the Eisenhower Method [ or sometimes referred to as the Eisenhower Matrix, or just Box-Method / Box-Matrix ], allow me to fill you in.

The Eisenhower Method is a simple but helpful way of organizing your tasks. Basically, each task has 2 attributes:

  • Important
  • Urgent




If a task is both Important & Urgent, well gee-willikers, you should probably get on that. DO!




If a task is Important but not Urgent, then you should save it for later. DECIDE!




If a task is Urgent but not Important, then get someone else to do it for ya. DELEGATE!




If a task isn't Important nor Urgent... then forget it. DELETE!

This very handy DO - DECIDE - DELEGATE - DELETE method has helped many people get back into control of their productivity, and begin prioritizing the more important steps need to be done in any plan / activity.

But what about this whole "Notion.so" thing?

Notion.so is an absolutely fantastic webapp that allows you to manage all your notes, to-dos, images, links, and much more, all in one place. Stop bouncing around from Evernote to OneDrive to DropBox to god-knows-what-elseKeep it all in Notion!

What's even cooler is that everything in Notion is basically just markdown or a simple database. This allows you to view the same set of data in numerous different ways! Text can be stylized with markdown, and data is formatted into tables which you can then view as either a card-gallery, a calendar, a display-list, and more!

Ok, cool, so I know the name & the tool... What's this post all about?

Like I said, a great feature of Notion is allowing you to customize it to your liking. Well, a few days ago I did just that and integrated the Eisenhower Method into Notion! Plus, if you have a free Notion account, I openly shared the layout so you can copy the document and use it for yourself!
