IDEAS

Ignore your inbox when you wake up

Responding to emails as soon as you receive a notification gives others the impression that you’re at their beck and call. It also prevents you from reflecting on your own priorities for the day.

In a work setting, it means the transfer of responsibility for a task from a manager to a subordinate. 

The decision to delegate is usually made by the manager. However, sometimes an employee will volunteer to take on an expanded role.
