Steven Covey's infamous book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, introduced the Time Management Matrix as a self-management tool. Organizations and individuals now widely prioritize tasks and identify time wasters. Tasks, time, people, and information are the four main components of time management. To that end, there are four vital tools that everyone should have on hand. This matrix is essentially a method for determining what you should be doing and learning to approach your commitments consciously. The time management matrix, among other strategies, can assist us in making better use of our time.
