For those that offer services either in an organization or own businesses, please try to be extra polite, smile a little bit more, say ‘Compliments of the Season’ to customers and go the extra mile to put a smile on someone’s face – even if it’s just one person a day. *smiles* I know we can! ...

How are you ma?” Mum’s friend: “My children have been telling me about one Jimi Tewe that is going around talking everywhere and I was like ...

Are You Stuck In A Career That Doesn’t Make You Happy? – Tokunbo Fasoro

A good number of people are scared and unhappy with their jobs, they are afraid that they may be stuck in that job for the rest of their lives. In my experience as an HR Consultant, I have had a lot of people walk up to me telling me they hate what they do, they dread going to work, and they have been stuck with those feelings on that job for years. I remember a time I changed jobs because I wanted to try something new in a different environment. I would always look forward to Fridays because of the upcoming weekend, meanwhile, Sundays were the unhappy days because I would have to go back to an environment I dreaded for the next five days. I patiently waited for two months on that job before I happily resigned. I had the money and the fancy title but it did not make me feel good. These are a few tips that may help you, if you find yourself in this situation. 1. It is okay to want something different: A lot of us tend to endure the feelings and end up unhappy, most times till the end of our lives. The ...

Hard Work and Smart Work – Zika Nwaise

Over the weekend, I attended a training and I thought to share with us some of the things I took home from that day. One of the facilitators spoke to us about the ‘value of a wasted minute’. He said,”There are two types of people in this world; There are those who are always extremely busy,yet do not achieve productivity. These type of people are the ones who are always actively doing something at every particular point in time. You can never call them lazy because they can never be caught idle.They take time to do lots of unimportant things and end up not achieving anything, because all they do is ‘almost get work done’. The second type of people are those who do the things that should be done as soon as possible, then spend the rest of their time doing other things.This set of people can never be called lazy either, but might not be actively up and about like the first group,but you know what, these people are always more productive. The difference between these two groups is, they both work hard but the second group works smart. So, I ask you BIE readers, when you wake ...
