RIP Stephen Covey

Unfortunately my great inspirator Stephen Covey passed away yesterday. Using RTM I apply his time management principle of the quadrants every day.

I tag each task with "Important" or "NotImportant" and also "Urgent" or "NotUrgent". Combined with saved searches to search for "Important" and "Urgent" I filter my tasks for each quadrant. Q1 being the quadrant of demand (Important and Urgent), Q2 being the quadrant of the zone (Important but not urgent), Q3 being the quadrant of illusion (not important but urgent) and finally Q4 the quadrant of escape (not important and not urgent).

I think we should be grateful for the lessons Covey taught us. His book and training have helped me much in my life. Rest In Peace, teacher.
