If you were president: Eisenhower's Matrix

Recommended Posts

Pres. Eisenhower has a system, which is now called Eisenhower's matrix by some historians. He would determine what to do based on importance and urgency:

  1. If the situation or topic was important and urgent, then he would personally act on it. 
  2. If the situation or topic was important but not urgent, then he would plan to act on it later. 
  3. If the situation or topic was not important but was urgent, then he woud delegate it. 
  4. If the situation or topic was neither important nor urgent, then he would ignore it until it becomes either important or urgent. 

If you were president, and considering the major issues for 2020 that are being discussed by politicians, as president, which of these 4 boxes would you place the issues in? 

I'll give one example of what I would do for each:

Box 1- Act. Climate change.

Box 2- Plan. Eliminate student debt and make public university tuition based on family income with some exceptions for independent students. 

Box 3- Delegate. Filling low-level executive positions that are vacant. 

Box 4-ignore. Executive action on abortion.

What would you do?

Not important, not urgent. 

I don't think I made it clear. These are what I would put in box 1-4. I'm not asking which box you'd place these in. What would you add to each box out of the issues. Those are just examples of mine.

Might I re-iterate my agreement here with William Tecumseh Sherman and Todd Robert Lincoln. What a wretched job!

Is this in reaction to the Matrix or my examples?

The question is "if I were President," according to a Matrix by Eisenhower. I re-iteration my aversion to personally holding the job.

Oh ok. That makes sense.
