Goals

As I looked through my electronic jotter to see what to write in order to update my blog, I saw where I wrote down a number of topics and points. I usually, on my way to work or any intended destination never keep my mind blank. I enjoy pondering on issues of interest as I commute, rather than leave my mind empty for silly bedbugs to infest. Sometimes, I am in want of something to write as inspiration doesn’t usually and always surface when you need it, and at some other times, you have so much to write that you wonder when you’ll be able to finish. At this particular time, there was so much to put down because all through the period of redesigning Success Inks website, no article update was done; instead, what should be published were written in bits and pieces of notes. I have looked at…

Maxwell Maltz said: “You and I function akin to bicycles, unless we are moving forward toward an objective, we fall and fail.” Goal setting is one of the most fundamental elements of achieving success in life. A study conducted by some students in Harvard University proved that people who have goals achieve ten times as much as people with no goals at all. That’s because goals have a great power behind them, they get us to focus on a certain objective, and help us tap into some great potentials and abilities we didn’t even know we had. The majority of people, today, practice goal setting. However, we still find that a great number of them aren’t truly happy with their lives.  Now why is that happening? It’s mainly because no one taught them the right way of setting goals, as a result, they just end up pursuing the wrong things…

Every human sets goals consciously or unconsciously. If you decide to walk from Point A to Point B, Point B is obviously your set goal. If a woman decides on a Monday morning that come Saturday, she will do a major shopping, the major shopping becomes the set goal. Without stress, on that Saturday morning, she will go to the supermarket and do her shopping. At the end of the shopping, her goal is achieved. If goal setting comes naturally with one’s area of strength, it becomes easy to attain. Most women love to shop, and so, it goes with their nature. When something is natural, it is self determined. Self determination comes from within. In spite of the above said, I would like to point out that there are people who disobey nature, and therefore, do not conform. When nature prompts you to do something, and you disobey over…

A team can be cohesive and still lose, in spite of the synergy and congruence that build a strong bond among them. Often, we have been told that teams that play together with one mind, one purpose, and one focus become outstanding, but I don’t believe that these qualities, despite being necessary, are the only factors that determine victory. Many teams have lost even if they played together. This is because there are other factors that determine the status of a team. There are dos and don’ts when it comes to team play. If you do what should be done and also spice it up with what shouldn’t, you might end up losing what you should have won. This is what happens when a sparkling white linen is soiled with just a single dot of oil. People wouldn’t focus on the major parts that are white but on the spot…

A night before writing this article, I was in the studio section of a conference airing a live television programme. My reason for being there was because I couldn’t get a seat in the main hall as it was jam packed. While there, I began to notice and learn some life changing principles. I totally believe that principles are the laws of change; so I always embrace them when I find them. As I sat behind the Mixing Engineer, there was one word he kept repeating in almost every statement as he communicated with the Cameramen. I would hear him say, ‘Camera one, improve your focus. Camera two, your focus is blurred, zoom out. Camera three, focus on the man with the white shirt’. All through the programme, it was focus, focus, and focus.  What is focus? Focus is the central point of attraction, attention, and activity; focus is the…
