Write about what you have learned or relearned concerning your use of time.

From this activity I learned that I spend the majority of my time on things that are important and on things that are both not important and not urgent. I spend most of my time in quadrant two doing things that are important but not urgent.  If I continue living this way I believe that I will reach my goals and dreams but possibly at a slower pace. I place priority on things that I want to do rather than placing priority on things that need to be done. At this pace I will eventually reach my goals but if I want them quickly I will have to change how I live. From now on I should probably be taking more action in quadrant one. Activities in quadrant one will affect my future the most. More effort in that quadrant wouldn’t hurt my life one bit.
