The Eisenhower Matrix is a decision making matrix built around two things - how urgent something is, and how important it is. If it is urgent and important, do it now. If it is urgent but not important, delegate it. If it is not urgent but important, schedule a time to do it. And if it is neither important nor urgent, eliminate it!
The expression "What If" is filled with doubt. Why demote yourself to that? Instead, replace "What If" with "So What" and see how your approach changes when making decisions and considering options.
Listen to this week's recap! Monday - Gratitude Tuesday - Do the New Wednesday - Keep Your Goals Private Thursday - Giving Benefit of the Doubt Friday - Priming

Our goal orientation works in one of two ways - we move toward our goals, or away from them. Avoidance is defensive to minimize risk, while approach is welcoming and optimistic. Framing your mind to approach your goals instead of avoid your goals will lead to something great!
