The CEO of Sue Davey International, Brainy Child Education and Mastermind Success Coaching International, Sue empowers action-oriented mainly women to train their brain and change their life and she equips mums and special needs caregivers to do the same with children—ultimately unleashing the genius that lives within all of us. Sue’s step-by-step brain training programs are a reflection of her personal step-by-step process of discovering her true potential and purpose and creating a path to prosperity around it. Sue’s passion for developing human potential first revealed itself when she 14. While her peers were playing, Sue was often studying—people, potential and prosperity—and the gap between the three. Eager to find the avenue to abundance, Sue began her career as a CPA and quickly climbed up the corporate ladder, securing coveted finance director positions with several international companies. However, despite discovering financial abundance, Sue felt incomplete. After giving birth to her daughter, she recognized she had also given birth to some deep-rooted limiting beliefs that were preventing her from pursuing her true purpose: to help people create a legacy. That was when everything changed. Sue went on to create two companies, each offering scientifically-based, step-by-step solutions that help people find true happiness. A product of her own programs, Sue has since reprogrammed her personal self-limiting beliefs and blockages and opened the door to whole-life prosperity—and lives to help others do the same. Sue is a featured columnist for various publications online and offline, as well as a professional source for reporters and journalists. Her new book, “Reboot Your Mind” will be published mid 2015. A voice for the vulnerable, Sue helps people take small steps that result in big impact. By activating the untapped areas of the brain that hold you back, Sue can help you begin to move forward and ultimately achieve success and wealth in every area of your life.

The Eisenhower Time Management Way

March 11, 2016 | Sue Davey

You’re swamped, and you’ve been asked to create an urgent presentation! Your to-do-list is running rampant with urgent tasks, anxiety sets in and concentration disappears.

Let me introduce you to a time management tool to help you beat stress and deliver great work!

I often use the Eisenhower Principle which allows you to consider priorities and decide which of your activities are important and which are distractions.

Where does the Eisenhower Principle come from?

It comes from US President Dwight D. Eisenhower. In 1954 he gave a speech to the Second Assembly of the World Council of Churches, quoted Dr J. Roscoe Miller, president of North-western University, said, “I have two kinds of problems: the urgent and the important. The urgent are not important, and the important are never urgent.” This is how he organised his workload and priorities.

How to Identify Urgent and Important

You need to spend time on activities that are important and not just urgent. What’s the difference?

  • Important activities have an outcome which helps us achieve our goals.
  • Urgent activities require immediate attention.

When you know which activities are important and which are urgent, you can overcome the tendency to focus on unimportant urgent activities, and create enough time to do what’s essential.

How the Eisenhower Principle Works

  • Create a to-do-list which lists all the activities that you know you need to do. Include everything.
  • Categorise each activity:
    • Important, urgent
    • Important, not urgent
    • Not important, urgent
    • Not important, not urgent

Categorise your Activities

  1. Important, Urgent

There are 2 types of important and urgent activities; ones that come out of the blue or those that you’ve left until the last minute. Plan ahead. But as in life, there are often things that we can’t predict.

The best approach is to leave some time in your schedule to handle unexpected important activities. If a crisis breaks out then reschedule other tasks.

  1. Important, Not Urgent

These are the activities that help you achieve your goals, and finalise work. You need to make sure that you schedule in enough time for this, as it will help you stay on track and reduce stress levels.

  1. Not Important, Urgent

These tasks are the ones that will stop you from achieving your goals. Try and either reschedule them or delegate. Learn to say no.

  1. Not Important, Not Urgent

Avoid these activities if possible – they are a distraction keeping you from doing important work. These activities relate to others, so you’ll have to say no.

If you use the Eisenhower Principle to manage your time, you’ll be on top of your workload and performing at your peak.
