Do you work but see No results? Do this!

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.

Writer’s Block – My candid opinion plus A Way out

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!

One basic truth about making your life count

The issue

There is this certain surge by people today to live a life of purpose. To answer a call to their life’s work (vocation). This increased interest is well reflected in the increasing amount of publications on this subject in recent years.

2016 A New Year – Here’s my article

But, I want you to see 2016 in another way. In a whole New Perspective.

A New Perspective.

I want you to view the year 2016 as a new book containing 366 pages. You decide what you write on each of those pages. To make 2016 a successful year you need to see each moment as an opportunity. Begin to see the goldmine in every second. Kayode Ajomole of Decounsellor would say “you need to wear an opportunity lens”. The way you look at everyday circumstances determines the way you think about them, the way you act towards them and thus your attitude.

I would like you to remember to :

  1. Set A goal for 2016 for he who fails to plan, plans to fail.
  2. Schedule your tasks to save time.
  3. Prioritize your tasks to save resources.
  4. Be happy and
  5. Be Yourself.

Additionally, you should tag the year – it’s cool. For instance I call 2016

“My year of Multiple Distinctions, Divine Breakthroughs and Continued Excellence.”

So go and have a Happy New Year.

Enlist for discovery and you will surely discover

It is a pity to note that many people only realize their potential when they have
already gone a long way in their life. The self discovery period is often a late comer in
the lives of most people. It marvels me when people in this 21st century still hang their
dear lives on some popular quotes like:
“Life begins at forty (40)”.
Everybody knows that this is an old charges. Today I got a new charge for
you. Ask yourself this question. Continue reading

How to handle lots of work through multitasking

Introduction

In a world where we all have targets to reach and goals to attain, it is common sight to find one person with lots of things to do.
