As human beings, we get overwhelmed. We get drained by a flood of tasks that characterizes our daily lives.
Brim full task lists is our signature.
But so is crossing over to a new day with unfinished tasks.
The work remains undone; the page remains blank and we feel like beating ourselves up. All these can be attributed to a single cause – An overwhelming number of things to do.
It overpowers our ability to tackle them resulting in zero days or worse still – countless unfinished tasks.
It leaves us burnt out with nothing to show for it.
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!
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. Some of these include Jeff Goins’Art of work, Frances Okoro’s10 steps to walking in purpose, Daniel Nicolas’Innate Abilities, Wilson Biyama’s Purpose, the ultimate pursuit and a host of others. The list is endless. All these are geared towards teaching people to walk in purpose; to live for a cause; to live a life that is worth the days you’ve got; to making your life count.
I know these books had taught you a lot about this subject.
But, the question remains: how exactly do you make your life count? What is the nitty-gritty involved in making your life count?

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 :
Set A goal for 2016 for he who fails to plan, plans to fail.
Schedule your tasks to save time.
Prioritize your tasks to save resources.
Be happy and
Additionally, you should tag the year – it’s cool. For instance I call 2016
“My year of Multiple Distinctions, Divine Breakthroughs and Continued Excellence.”
I know you’ve heard a lot about note taking. It’s in your Secondary or high school and college or university curriculum, it is been spoken about in different writers’ interactions. But please hear me out.
I’ve not always been a fan of writing on the go. I prefer sitting down fully concentrating on the piece am writing but guess what I found out of recent?
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. The reason why tasks are enormous can’t be far from the goals we have as individual and businesses thus the amount of work load depends on our target. For instance students have the challenge of balancing attendance to class and studying their books alongside their social life. Some people work in two or more different places aiming at income boost this also explains why Continue reading →
