Top 4 Time Management Tips - Anichebe

Okay, here's the truth, we really can't manage time, we can only manage ourselves. Allow me to share four of my own top secrets for personal effectiveness.

1. Manage your smart-phone. Don't let your phone manage you. In a digitised world with our smart phones and tablets, its easy to get distracted with all the blinking red/green lights. Learn to switch off your data subscription when you need to focus on a particular task. That way you're not easily distracted by every ping and email. Read your emails and pings in batches, at a go.

2. Learn to simply say "No" to the urgent and "Yes" to the important. No to the endless weddings invites, television series, football matches etc. Just say "No" and focus on your high leverage activities that actually generate value and money.

3. Hustle while you wait. Use small pockets of dull time while waiting in traffic, queues, on the toilet seat to sort out the minor issues e.g. emails, broadcasts/Facebook/news/gossip/Linda Ikeji etc. Do those while waiting.

4. Write a To-do-list at the start of each day and then attach a Pleasure-Pain factor to these goals. If you achieve all the goals you listed in the morning reward yourself in the evening, personally I prefer a cup of iced yoghurt — what's your flavour?

On the other hand if you don't achieve all that you set out, then punish yourself by giving away money to someone you don't particularly like. How's that for motivation?

Time is our most valuable asset. We must learn to use it wisely.

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.
