There’s a very interesting Twitter thread from Hassan El Mghairi on his 10 takeaways from a lecture given by Randy Pausch. Pausch was a renowned Computer Science professor who got cancer and decided to give one last lecture on time management before he passed away.
My favorite of Hassan’s ten takeaways is this:
- If it’s urgent + important, do it now. 🏃♀️
- If it’s non-urgent + important, schedule a time to do it. 🗓️
- If it’s urgent + not important, try to delegate it. 👉
- If it’s non-urgent + not important, ignore it. 🙈
