How’s it going?

There are numerous strategies for cutting your To-Do list, but I found an efficient one that might assist to some of you.
Of course, I'm not reinventing the wheel, yet for those who don't familiar with this technique, you might find this helpful. I call it The 4D, you can call it however you like it doesn't really matter.

The concept is simple:
When you are done with your To-Do list, just before you attack your day,
go through your to-do list(s) for the last time and apply The 4D.

Urgent & Important ==> Do, must do! Not tomorrow, not next week, but today.

Urgent but Not Important ==> Delegate. Simple as that.

Not urgent but Important ==> Decide. Meaning, reschedule or Do (today).

Not urgent & Not important ==> Delete, forget it, move on.

Thanks for sharing, its a good concept and easy to implement. I would suggest to do it the night before everyday!
