Section 1: Introduction

What is the course about.


The flow is about the things you can do with any staff that comes to you: Delete, Archive, Take action, Delegate.


Procrastination is the avoidance of doing a task which needs to be accomplished.[1] It is the practice of doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, or carrying out less urgent tasks instead of more urgent ones, thus putting off impending tasks to a later time



Habits are all. If you don't have constancy and determination to incorporate a habit in your daily routine, everithing else is useless.
