RED: Red stands for events and activities that are both vital and urgent. Red reminds us to STOP whatever it is we’re doing and go do this thing now!
GREEN: Green stands for GO! Do as many green activities as you can today because green is where the money is made, where relationships are nurtured and things get done.
YELLOW: Yellow stands activities and events that are not vital but have some value. Yellow reminds us to use caution.
GRAY: Gray stands for activities that are a waste of time! We use gray to remind us when we slip in to a state of TRIVIA and waste time.
Use Priority Matrix as a progressive planner. There is no need to transfer unfinished tasks from yesterday’s to-do list to today’s to-do list. When you prioritize activities with color, simply drag the activity to a different color to heighten the level of priority. Yesterday’s yellow activities become green and green activities become red. This save time and simplifies the planning process.

Review your goals daily as you plan your day and choose activities that you can do “today” that will keep you on the path to achieving your goal.
