Everybody here have so far made very good points in this thread that Id have to agree on both sides.
For newbies it is best to focus on the AB course or if they have Affilorama Premium then focus on what is being taught there. The ones who benefit from different sales pitches are the ones way past the newbie stage. They are ready for more information that can possibly fit in their business model.
Curtis made a good point. I think that reading email should be the last thing to do in your work day. This was discussed by Tim Ferriss in his book "The 4-hour work week".
I guess this is a combination of a lot of things than any one thing...discipline, desire to succeed, dream of finding the magic pill, etc etc.
If it can be oversimplified maybe it should be down to 3 things:
1. Focus on the course you are doing, follow it by the letter and then implement what you learn.
2. Open your email accounts only 15-30 minutes before the end of your work day. This way even if you extend reading and replying to emails, at least you have accomplished earlier in the day what you are scheduled to do for the day. =)
3. Check out other strategies/methods when you are really ready.
