Are You Making Excuses?

You’re probably used to the words – “I don’t know how”, “It probably wouldn’t have worked anyways”, “I’m too busy” and so many others. You just can’t help coming up with ways to explain your inaction when something to be done crops up. Excuse-makers are usually seen as weak, lazy or cowardly. Although it’s an unfair generalization because we all make excuses once in a while. I’m sure most of us can remember times when we procrastinated and wasted days before starting a project and some of us can remember times we started immediately, and finished ahead of schedule. Procrastination can be dealt with in two simple ways: Organising your priorities and Breaking down discomfort Organising Your Priorities What’s more important to you right now? Expanding your finances? Succeeding academically? Improving the quality of your relationships? Excuse making is the result of conflicting priorities. When you don’t have a system for making decisions, the tendency is to just go with whatever feels best in the moment. You can clear this up by defining what your priorities are.

Go the Extra mile

An important principle of success in all walks of life and in all occupations is a willingness to ” Go The Extra Mile “; which means the rendering of more and better service than that for which one is paid, and giving it in a positive mental attitude. Search wherever you will for a single sound argument against this principle and you will not find it, nor will you find a single instance of enduring success, which was not attained in part by its application. We would love to share a story with you and we hope you will in some small way benefit from this story… Sometime last year, I was working as a barber somewhere on the Island. It was a hectic Friday and at 5:55 pm (5 minutes before closing), this man walked in. I told him that we already closed (shame on me). He said that he had to fly out that evening for a meeting tomorrow morning in Abuja, and he needed his hair done (his hair was a whole lot of mess), and our shop was the only place that was still opened. My colleagues were already “cutting eye for me” from the back, ...

Happy Worker’s Day – How the BI Empowerment Team Celebrated Worker’s Day

We hope it’s not too late to wish you a ‘Happy Worker’s Day’. It was Worker’s day on the 1st of May and we felt the need to celebrate. The BI Empowerment team were invited to join the Africa Basketball League(ABL)  at their Worker’s Day Basketball games on the 2nd of May, at the Landmark Event Centre, Victoria Island. Lagos.  ABL are partners with BI Empowerment and they have generously supported us in the past, by providing free regular tickets for our graduates to attend their games. This time, they offered the entire BI Empowerment team, VIP tickets to celebrate Worker’s day. We will like to use this medium to say a big thank you to ABL . Two matches were fixed for the day and I arrived the venue at about 6.00pm with Tokunbo Fasoro, Stanley Awelewa of BI Empowerment and Pelagie Egbane, a very good friend of the BI Empowerment team. The first match kicked off, it was against the Stallions and the Warriors and it was a very competitive match.  The highlight of the game was when the Warriors made a basket during the final minute of the game, this sent the match to overtime. After a long battle, amidst sweat, shouts ...
