Exploring the internet

It all comes down to creative problem solving. Funny I should be thinking in this line but hey, I suppose I can’t take away the HR skill out of me.

Looking through my Stats on WordPress from time to time, analyzing too, what people search for the most on internet, I’m glad I’m able to help guide someone’s information out there sometimes. Looking through Google this morning with an intention to satisfy some sort of inquisition on the internet, I find this: Olajumoke Orisaguna: Model is Google’s most searched person in Nigeria in 2016.

So the story of Olajumoke is one which everyone did talk about and obviously are still talking about. Even I talked about it here some time ago. So what makes people still want to know about her or catch up with what she’s doing these days? The answer is simple. Everyone loves a grass-to-grace story. Prosperity!

We all want to relate to prosperity, we want it. Heck, we even made it a prayer point at my “gathering of the brethren” this past weekend. All round well-being, happiness, satisfaction, success and wealth, we want these things. However, an important factor is to be considered – what do you have in your hands? I’d like to describe prosperity as the multiplication in good fortune of what is.

When Jesus fed 5,000 men, excluding women and children, He did it with 2 fishes and 5 loaves of bread. When Simon caught fishes so much, they broke his fishnet, he had been at sea, not at the shore lamenting about the tides. When God multiplied the barrel of oil of the Widow of Zeraphath, she was willing to bring forth her very last. Something always has to give for a multiplication of good fortune to happen. Miracles happen when we have something to lift up to the heavens in anticipation for a better realization. Magic is merely a mumbo-jumbo of a concoction which often usually vanishes.

We love a good story, we want that grass-to-grace story to be ours, we want prosperity but what are we doing presently to cause that blessing to happen to/for us? A lot of songs preach that your hero lies in you. It sure does. Only you can help actualize your dreams, you just need some creativity about it.

Get to it already! 😉 … More Exploring the internet

Staying relevant in the era of productivity

Forget Nigeria, I guess the world is also merely thriving in these trying times. Just yesterday, I was watching a program on CNN and it was speaking, verbatim, the language of most companies in Nigeria now. Productivity. What is productivity anyway?

“The effectiveness of productive effort (achieving a significant amount or result), especially in industry, as measured in terms of the rate of output per unit of input”.

I suppose this covers everything – every company’s expectation of their employees and everyone’s expectation of themselves basically. So from day one of any venture at all – careful planning, excellent execution and successive consistent delivery of exceptional result is very key. In the words of a professionally accomplished young Ireland woman I know, “put yourself out there. No one will necessary give you the platform to succeed until you take the bulls by the horns and be counted”.

In the usual exercise of a lot of companies, re-org, downsizing, and lay-off, whatever you what to call it, over the last few years, millions of people have found themselves involuntarily out of work—too often through no fault of their own, notwithstanding the conscious effort to deliver and be productive. Unfortunately, this exercise has come to stay. But whether the reason you lost your job has everything to do with your perceived performance, or absolutely nothing, it’s how you respond in the wake of it that will set you apart from others before the next job surfaces. A proactive and positive mindset will differentiate you from the masses, making all the difference in how “lucky” you get in an unlucky economy. It will even determine whether you one day look back on this time with some measure of gratitude for what you gained from it—whether it was the chance to re-evaluate your life, spend extra time with your family, re-strategize on spends and savings, or to simply re-affirm what matters most.
