It tells us to focus on important but not necessarily urgent things, like planning, exercise, or self-improvement, which are often de-prioritized since they are not urgent. If we apply this framework to software engineering, production bugs are urgent and important (Quadrant #1), whereas automated testing and tools are important but not urgent (Quadrant #2). We should invest in better testing and tools, so we will have fewer bugs in the long run and we can spend time on more important things.
