What Is the Eisenhower Matrix and why should everyone learn about it?

The Eisenhower Matrix is a tool that helps you decide which tasks you should do immediately, schedule, delegate and delete. Each task is sorted based on urgency and importance.

Personally, I use this matrix to sort out all of my tasks (within my to-do list app and previously in Notion). I simply tag each task with the level of urgency and importance and then filter my tasks that way. It has been an extremely effective tool to identify which tasks to eliminate and which I could delegate to someone else. 

Here are some graphics to explain exactly how it works and what types of tasks I would put into each category:
