1 December 2019 10:01:20 PM

I learned about procrastination and eat that frog first. I learned goal setting, the 20/80 rule, handling tasks, the 1 minute and 5 munutes rule, prioritization of urgent/umportant and urgent/umimportant, trivial, its 4 segments, case studies of the otherwise, the SMART concept to goal, accepting mistake and bouncing back and put myself on track.

1 December 2019 08:28:15 PM

I learned organizing has to do with decluttering prioritizing and decide on things you want and need to keep, things that can be donated which are much more useful for others and things that are no longer useful or damaged that goes to bin. Think about document organization and desk work place organization that saves time and effective and productive working habit. Learned about procrastination and bad habits that disallow us from achieving our goals.

I learned that Imagination that creates Positive Mind then Dreams and Goal setting around Purposeful life that builds confidence self esteem persistence will power faith to stay focused and to be an expert in your areas of life has to do with imagination and positive self talk.
