People can, often times, get carried away with activities, ushering them into neglect for what really is needful and important. Truth is, we cannot perform all of the activities in out to-do list at once, hence, the need for proper delegation of time for our various activities.
I want to share some thoughts with you, hope you gain from them:
* You arrange activities in a scale of importance, not preference, because what you prefer may differ from what is important qnd relevant in a given period.
* Activities that their exiry dates/times is as close as your mouth is to your nose should be done first and quickly. Infact, you should not allow it to be that close, try to get the things done when their expiry dates/times are at “arm’s length”. If you fail to do this, itay cost you; just like missing an examination because you spent the night preparing for the examination, and then slept off when you were supposed to go for the examination, or missing your flight, or worse, not getting the ingredients to cook dinner ready, and it’s time for dinner.
* Activities that involve human life and death should be treated with utmost importance.
* Activities that build you, the people around you (society), and your nation up, should be done continually and continuously- EVERYDAY!
* What you can do at a later date/time should be put at a later date/time when you have something with as much importance/relevance to do. This is not to condone or support procastination, but it is to enhance better quality use of time.
If you do not prioritise your activities properly, you MUST lose, at least, your time, confidence on yourself, trustworthiness, and reliability. Go and Do what you ought to do!

A young lady was waiting for her flight in the boarding room of a big airport. As she would need to wait many hours, she decided to buy a book to spend her time. She also bought a packet of cookies. She sat down in an armchair, in the VIP room of the airport, to rest and read in peace.
Beside the armchair where the packet of cookies lay, a man sat down in the next seat, opened his magazine and started reading. When she took out the first cookie, the man took one also. She felt irritated but said nothing. She just thought: “What a nerve! If I was in the mood I would punch him for daring!” For each cookie she took, the man took one too. This was infuriating her but she didn’t want to cause a scene. When only one cookie remained, she thought, “Ah… What would this abusive man do now?” Then, the man, taking the last cookie, divided it into two halves, giving her one half. Ah! That was too much! She was much too angry now! In a huff, she took her book, her things and stormed the boarding place. When she sat down in her seat, inside the plane, she looked into her purse to take her
eyeglasses, and to her surprise, her packet of cookies was there, untouched, unopened! She felt so ashamed! She realized that she was wrong. She had forgotten that her cookies were kept in her purse. The man had divided his cookies with her, without feeling angered or bitter, while she had been very angry, thinking that she was dividing her cookies with him. And now there was no chance to explain herself, nor to
There are 4 things that you cannot
The stone… after the throw!
The word… after it’s said!
The occasion… after the loss!
The time… after it’s gone!
Cherish Every Moment and Fill them with Love and Care For EVERYONE. This is what LIFE is all about!!!
I thought it all began when I was born
I later found that to be false
Then I said “it definitely started when I was conceived”
Those words were not correct too!!
Maybe it all started as a thought in my parents’ minds
Well, that’s not correct either
After much thinking and brainstorming
I now have it all figured out
At least, part of everything about me
All my life has been preplanned
Even up to every second of my days
They have been arranged, even before my birth
I existed before I came on earth
Not as anything, but as a thought in God’s mind
He carefully wrote the program of my life down
Then He made me, and inserted my life into me
All my days have been figured out by God
I need not worry about anything
He’s planned riches, honour, wisdom, splendour
Greatness, glory, dominion, peace, and prosperity
For all my days and years
I was programmed to enjoy in life
Its now in my hands to enjoy all these
I only need to believe in, and accept God!!!
Life really is good!!!
In one of my earlier posts dated 18th of February 2014, I wrote on “WHAT LOVE IS NOT” and I promised to talk about what love is. Well, here is the fulfillment of my promise. Let’s go……..
1. Love is life
God’s commandment to mankind is “Love me with all your heart, soul, and might, and love your neighbour as you love yourself”. This commandment depict how ought a man to live, and if this is how ought man to live, then love is the whole essence of life. Take a look at it, the whole problem of the world is a problem of lack of love. The number one reason people take life is hatred- which is opposite of love. If one loves, one will not steal from another person, and life will be enhanced. Love is the cure for all the world’s ills. So, if you claim to love someone, you must enhance that person’s life in one way or the other.
2. Love is a person (God)
God is what love is all about, hence to truly love, you must know God. He that does not love, does not know God, and he that claims to love and does not know God, does not love. It will take a lifetime to fully understand God, and so it is for love.
3. Love is a fruit
When I say love is a fruit, I mean it is a character quality that we all are expected to live with if we really want to live life. This fruit carries a lot of things with it, they are; Joyfulness, Peacefulness, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-control. These qualities make up what love is when expressed as a whole, and not seperately. A man perfect in each of these qualities, is a man perfect in love (and life).
This is (in my view) what love is. Love you all!!!
