Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master While Lepidus tries to convince Enobarbus to temper Antony in his difficult personal relationship with Caesar, Lepidus argues that problems should be prioritized in terms of importance, and that person conflicts should be left in the background. Enobarbus retorts that he prefers to treat problems in the order in which they arise. This evokes the famous Eisenhower matrix (named after the 34th President of the United States), which states that the importance of a problem should take priority over its urgency.
