Welcome to the EMBER MONTH
So, I started telling you a story on Monday, about my activities in late August.
Here is the second one.
Removing my tooth was challenging but then I need to be productive, NO EXCUSES, that’s how I have been WIRED.
I was planning travel logistics to our counterpart at Nigeria Center for Disease Control, (NCDC). I was in dire need of a hotel contact there but for almost a week, I was busy looking for the contact in a wrong way.
We even had to ask a booking agency to that on our behalf, low and behold, I came back to my senses and remembered I have a friend, whom I have never met but I was making sure we had good engagement.
Guess what, she sacrificed her time to get us the contact of the hotel we struggled to get for a week in less than 1 hour.
Then I sat back and said to myself, what happened just apply to our we set out our plans in life.
If you are busy but broke, it means there is something wrong with your plan. It’s time you checked your plan.
Don’t be busy being busy. Be busy being productive. Don’t be task oriented but result oriented. Don’t ever confuse movement for progress.
Most of us are moving very fast but in the wrong direction. Remember direction is better than speed.
It’s not the hours you put in that counts, it is what you put in the hours. Look for smart ways of doing things by focusing on doing more per hour.
Remember time is capital do be alert those trying to steal it.
Secondly, remember your network is your net worth.
“You are the sum total of the people you meet and interact with in the world. Whether it’s your family, peers, or co-workers, the opportunities you have and the things that you learn all come through doors that other people open for you”
Expect the third story on Friday.
To your success
