Your Career Toolbox- What’s Inside?

Professional Pilots will always tell you,  no matter how long they have been flying, they are required twice a year to spend a week retraining.
Should we be less concerned about keeping our skills up to date?
No matter how acquainted you are with your vision,  strategy and structure;  we all need to have that vision re energised on a regular basis.
  If all you have in Your Career Toolbox is  a Hammer, you tend to treat everything as a nail.
     A farmer can be hardworking and dedicated,  but he must be Skilled in handling right equipment. If he attempts harvesting corn with wheat harvesting tools, he is bound to fail.

   Success requires more than
dedication and  hard work, it takes Skill,  Timing and Right Tools.  Of course, prayer is absolutely essential,  but it takes more than prayer to grow your career.
  We say, there is a time to pray and a time to Act Accordingly and Responsibly. We Nigerians especially tend to get ‘all Spiritual’ when things go wobbly — Wait, Observe,  Check The Causes,  Pray, ACT ACCORDINGLY.

Sharpening Your Own Ax!

It takes more than dedication to grow your career.  ‘SKILL’ is crucial. ☝
Now, acquiring a skill doesn’t mean you are skilled on that field. Being skilled on that field should become your target.  “If the Ax is dull and its edge unsharpened,  more strength is needed, but skill will bring success ” (Holy Bible).
    God says skill, not just dedication. If you will have to chop wood, you’ll do better job by sharpening your Ax first.
The point is Work Smarter, Not Harder.

Take time to learn the skills you need, you will save time in the long run  and be far more successful.
Never rush learning. It’s a pity these days that many people do not spend as much time as they should learning and developing themselves. Every one seems to be in a hurry to be called CEOs,  but how many of them are truly unique and outstanding enough to be called CEO. ?
What are you executing? How solid is your root?, your base and your background?  Do not be all about the titles and positions and names. Be a representative of what you claim to be representing.
Sharpen your own Ax by reading wide , attend seminars, conferences, and always observe working models. Sadly, how many in this category have working and real models they look up to and tag? If you think you are the best, then that’s exactly where the problem is. No one knows it all.
You are never wasting your time when you are sharpening your Ax.

Have a fulfilling week. .

Bricks On The Way…….? Turn Them To Ladders

It’s a good feeling even before putting this down, I feel so good about it and I know you will, by the time you are done reading through; for yourself and maybe someone else as well.☺
   I often hear many reasons (excuses) especially when I meet people and they tell me why and why they haven’t been able to cross some bridges on their achievement path. Well ,I tag them excuses because I know, to the willing and ready mind, nothing is difficult. 👌
   Of course, the challenges will and must come, or how do you test your strength? …. But when they come,  how do you tackle?
I recall speaking to a gathering of youths at an empowerment launch recently, if you are not ready to empower yourself, no matter what grant or support you get from anywhere, it will remain useless. We all have bricks on our way, it’s now up to you to allow it trip you or make it stepping stones.
       I will always insist,  no situation is bad enough to make anyone lose their heads, while some others in worse conditions are keeping theirs head held high.
Face your future with Courage and Confidence. Have Focus. This is so important. If you don’t know where you are going,  how do you want to get there?  While waiting for that job, get yourself equipped for anything that may happen. It doesn’t mean you are pessimistic, it only makes you a Prepared Soldier.
If you spend months waiting for something  to happen, are those waiting weeks adding to your self value?
When people complain it’s expensive to add value,  but it’s not expensive to renew their data subscriptions, hair, phones, other gadgets and more. It only tells me the value such a person put on themselves already. Those liabilities will fade with time, you’ll only be left with the assets you choose to equip yourself with.
Get those bricks off your way and keep stepping up! 👈 The future only belong to those who are taking the risks now and building their growth foundation with the bricks on their ways.

Quality Vs Quantity?…..

I often hear people say it’s all about the quality and not the quantity. Each time I hear this , I often pause and wonder how true those words are. Maybe I’m not the only one in this state….. I just think I should sit and think about this for a while. …
When you enter a business, Do you want quality or quantity?  I think both should be the answer. I want to make the biggest profit I can make; and so should everyone reason. You should want to make more clients and better jobs always. The fact that many people seem to claim it’s about quality and not the quantity or the numbers. .. The real fact remains- QUALITY PRODUCES QUANTITY. ….
Part of the problem is that no one defines what they mean by the terms “quality and quantity”
Quality refers to your products or services, How good it is,  How lasting it can be over use and time; How you improve on it constantly;  etc….. But quantity refers to the number of clients you serve, how many referrals you get; how many people demand or seek your product or service. …    You see, once the terms are defined, it’s obvious that quality and quantity are not in opposition of each other. They are not mutually exclusive. You do not have to choose between the two,  as a good business person or entrepreneur, you should want both. Fact remains that an exclusive focus on one of both will yield crooked result.
People are attracted to quality, Quality attracts Quantity.
In some aspects, Quantity creates Quality too, because with the growth of your businesses, you cannot afford to offer services that won’t add to your reputation. If your increase doesn’t impact your business value,  you’re headed downward.
    Never join them to hinge your lack of growth on ” the smaller the better” adage. That reasoning is wrong and faulty. If quality is in smallness,  then logically, the biggest businesses should have only one client. And they wouldn’t have added branches.
Count People Because People Count. ..
They say “You can’t measure success by numbers”, I tell them “it depends on what you are counting”
