    Everything ur saying is just a regurgitation of what is known as time management. To do list, is all about eliminating and doing only whats important, prioritizing. Second, theres nothinh u can do today that will mutiply your time tomorrow. 3rd , SIGINIFICANCE will not inherently mutiply your TIME. 4th, when u decide to spend time on one task, there is always an opportunity cost incurred for not spending time on another task, much like investing. 5th automation, and delegation are not new phenomenons suddenly added through the thought process of significance and the 3D thinking u claim, thats why we are going into the fourth industrial revolution and people have always had PA's or secretaries. Infact hierarchy is delegation.
    Siginifcance is all about GOAL setting. "What can i do today, that would make tomorrow better?" Is just a quetion u ask urself that set ur priorities and dictates what u should spend ur time on today, to get to the end reward/goal.
    Summed up, you haven't said anything new today, that will multiply my time tomorrow.

    Would i be wrong to argue that an inherent principle of prioritizing is selecting what would last the longest and be the most significant?

  • Johnson Wang

    Importance can be measured in two ways: Impact to our goal (How much does it matter?) and impact to our future (How long does it matter). So the 3 dimensions time management can be reduced to 2-dimension time matrix.
    The foucs funnel "Elimate -> Automate -> Delegate -> Procrastinate on purpose" is esentially "3D", defer, delegate, delay

    "Efficiency" is intended to make things happen faster which only adds to the number of items in our to-do lists. "Prioritizing" is simply borrowing time from other tasks, not necessarily creating time. Urgency: how SOON does it matter? Importance: how MUCH does it matter?Significance: how LONG does it matter?You MULTIPLY your time by giving yourself the EMOTIONAL PERMISSION to spend time on things TODAY that will give you more time TOMORROW.The Focus Funnel (TM) is visual depiction of thought process for filtering tasks to MULTIPLY time: Eliminate > Automate > Delegate > Me.Items that make it to "Mm" are then split into NOW: concentrate and protect time to complete; or LATER: hold/procrastinate on purpose until task can be eliminated, automated or delegated.Difference in procrastinating due to "lack of motivation (negligence)" versus procrastinating because "right now is not the right time (intentionality)". Virtue: Patience, the art form of intentionally putting off insignificant tasks.God's 1st command to humans: "be fruitful and multiply"

    The "important" vector includes the concept of "significance". This seems to be just tacking on a superfluous and redundant vector that needlessly complicates the Eisenhower Matrix, without actually fundamentally changing it. My opinion.

Yestrue but it was realy time consuming task to understand cultural view but i 'd? yes i did at end at end i got that speech was good, emotional, bit religious .however it was not really work about people. Icould give respon is up words feel good and very few listener give neagtive option but my thought is that this is only moderan and rich people task not for my type old age and lower level people for,i do understand this is knowled of time and fact as he trying to expaln but not for those work who are looking for survivors in this world regardless what is they want .thanks
