    This is helpful information. It is a tough economy and I have been without a job for almost two months. After meeting with a recruiter last week I found how much social networking plays into getting your next job and being proactive (or as you say in the “zone”). I found this article helpful also: http://vjournal.com/linkedin-tips. My linked in was one of the embarrassing ones that she talks about before reading this article.

    This is just the time matrix from FranklinCovey’s time management course which has been around for MANY years – with different names for the quadrants. Maybe the author should “pay attention” to intellectual property rights….

    Thank you everyone for your comments. In response to Nancy, there are many systems out there that have a similar quadrant type model. Stephen Covey uses something similar and even Spencer Johnson (the guy who wrote ‘Who Moved My Cheese’ weaves some of this in. It’s not an issue with intellectual property rights as each has their own spin on these various quadrants. What I like about Stagen’s approach in particular is that it explicitly incorporates a more gentle mindfulness approach toward all the zones we are in. This allows us to judge ourselves less when them mind has wandered and to gently bring attention back to what is most important right now.
