Stephen Covey, in his book "First Things First", notes that those who accomplish very little are probably spending a large amount of their 16 hours (assume we sleep 8 hours) in the Quadrant of Deception and the Quadrant of Waste. In his book he highlights four quadrants where one can spend their time:

  1. Quadrant of Necessity

  2. Quadrant of Quality & Personal Leadership

  3. Quadrant of Deception

  4. Quadrant of Waste.


Important and urgent when they occur; fortunately they are rare.
