For a very long time I’ve been a victim to failed goals. I’d set them and work tirelessly towards them but while I get to have a few wins most times I lose out.
Call it a return on resource investment and you won’t be wrong. Continue reading

Finishing An Art?
Yes, in the same way that crafts like writing, painting and singing are arts, getting to complete what you’ve started is also an art. It is a skill that can be learnt and mastered.
The three (3) positive attitudes you must imbibe to be successful
It is always a pity to see someone settling for far less than their capability. They never heed to the advice – Be positive.
They thus always conform to the negative manner in which the society portrays things.
Whether you’re just starting out or have been writing for a long time, there are always days when you want to do anything but writing. On such days you feel like beating yourself up. Writing productivity is lost and the creative muscles are dulled (at least for that moment). Well, I am an avid fan of staying productive (churn out great pieces) and such days are always nightmares. I feel awful on them.
Five tips to Staying focused on your goal
You nurse an ambition and pursue it. It is your goal and you focus on it. Many of us see our goal as priceless and worthy of all our effort. But sometimes you find yourself getting distracted from the goal itself, you lose focus and thus eventually lose the goal.
Whenever you take action, you get better off when you had only planned, intended, wished or aspired. The statements below are commonly made by people who have a big wishbone and don’t back it up with a backbone of doing:
‘I wish I were a writer’,
‘I wish I were a dancer’,

The 21st century human being is an ever engaged being;
A busy bee or better still a buzzing being.
To him the 24 hour day is grossly inadequate and thus he always has tons of undone tasks.
This causes him to undermine his efforts. “I’m not doing enough!” he asserts.
The truth is, we all want to do more, be more and have more. In short, we crave increased productivity.
To be more productive you need to literally do more. Great, this is why you pick at several tasks.
The’s something about achieving any task, succeeding over any hurdle or beating any Target. As long as you don’t do it – it doesn’t get done. It remains just another item on your task list.
It is true that for many people there’s nothing more daunting than starting out at a task.
It’s spoken about frequently whenever writers meet.
You’ve heard of it or might’ve even experienced it.
Some believe it’s not real but just a creation of lazy writers.
Others claim it happens; that it comes and sucks up their zeal leaving them practically word-less and to some extent with no idea!
Yes, we all want to unleash the genius in us. Continue reading
Doing more – becoming more and achieving more is surprisingly easy.
Everybody wants to do more; become more efficient and achieve more.
But only a few can boast about how productive and efficient their daily life processes are.
“Art is never finished, only abandoned.” – Leonardo Da Vinci
The creative process is much about preparation and good habits as these can drive you beyond places where inspiration stops.
People today are busy beings. Buzzing with activities all round the clock. Flooding brim full task lists are now commonplace. But even with this all round busyness, some stuff still lingers on – never getting done and punctuality has become elusive to many. Continue reading
