It's still the second day of the workweek. So if you get overwhelmed on a bluesy Monday, don't worry. You can start by following a proven task management system like the traditional 2x2 grid of the Eisenhower Matrix.
In 2020, named after a study's co-author, the Sung Diagram intends to add another variable in the matrix2, making it a Venn diagram. The variables are importance, urgency, and then fitness, indicating whether you are capable of the task. The diagram has seven outcomes - delegate now, do now, delegate next, do next, schedule, plan, and delete.
Aside from following a system, may these Tuesday quotes push you throughout the week. May your next Tuesday be more successful, and your Tuesday nights replenish.
