Today's Inspiration: Hustle While You Wait

On Wednesday night a lady asked me, "How do you get so much done in so little time?"

To which I replied, "Okay! Here's a tip, hustle while you wait."

It sounds simple right? Maybe too obvious? But how many really people do this? Very few is my guess — common sense doesn't always translate into common practice. Maybe I should run a workshop titled Obvious 101...

Stand on a bank queue and you'll see exactly what I mean — people complaining and criticising on how sluggish the queue is moving, on how much time they've spent been waiting. On how slow the bank's internet server is — like all these complaints is going to magically result in faster service immediately!

Same thing goes on while waiting on a long Lagos traffic jam or a fuel queue. Complaints like this do nothing but disturb your mental state, cause high blood pressure, anxiety and a poor mental attitude.

A better solution is to use this lag times and wait periods to do a passive activity like read a newspaper, make business phone calls, write a report, listen to an educational audio CD or maybe even pray for those Chibok girls. Do anything than just join the complaining bandwagon.

Cursing the darkness won't make PHCN bring back light. Best to fire up a candle.

Have a great weekend and Make Your Life a Blockbuster™

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
