The matrix of - urgent-important - which is often called also as Eisenhower matrix- defines the priorities of the tasks on the base of importance and urgency.

 The idea to measure the 2 competeting taskgroups in 1 matrix was coming from the former U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Dr. Stephen Covey: "I have two kinds of problems: the urgent and the important. The urgent are not important, and the important are never urgent." This "Eisenhower Principle" is said to be how he organized his workload and priorities.

No matter how effective we are, sooner or later the number of tasks is surpassing the available time frame.

He recognized that great time management means being effective as well as efficient. In other words, we must spend our time on things that are important and not just the ones that are urgent.
