Covid19: Motivating Yourself While Working From Home

Studies have shown that working from home can increase productivity; however, without proper checks & balances put in place, it can spiral into a lonely and weird feeling that might lead to a Lack of Motivation. Here are a few tips to motivate yourself and increase your productivity while working from home.

Have A Dedicated Workspace

Within your home, find your concentration zone and make use of it each time you intend to get some work done. As much as possible, avoid working on the bed, playroom, and the living room except you can prevent or control any distraction caused by people around you or your environment.

Wrong way to work from home.

Get Dressed Like A Professional

Since the mindset for work has been accustomed to a semi-professional dress code, being too casually dressed can hinder one’s brain from getting set for some serious task, so get out of those pyjamas right away!

Set Boundaries for Family and Friends

Depending on the set up of your home, friends and family are more likely to see you around more often. Make them understand that you are not on vacation and would be grateful if they left you to work at certain hours of the day. This also means that you should resist the urge to invite guests to your house during this period.

Create An Activity Schedule

Working from home demands concentration and dedication; therefore, you should create an activity plan or task schedule to help you remain organised and productive. Set up automated reminders for important tasks, online meetings, and deadlines; decide ahead how you’re going to proceed each workday.

Get The Right Tools and Facilities for The Job

Especially in Nigeria and some other developing countries, working from home requires certain facilities which you always enjoyed at your office, such as internet service and electricity supply. Endeavour to find out what quantity of data will be adequate for your work as well as what network works perfectly in your residence. Try to make the best use of times when you are supplied electricity by the power company and get an alternative source of electricity if you can afford it.

Adopt Apps To Control Your Social Media Usage Each Day

Social media interaction and entertainment has been a major distraction over the years, even at workplaces; working from home could further aggravate the distraction rate if it is not intentionally controlled. It is therefore important to research and invest in getting tools that can help you manage your time on those platforms. Moment; App-detox; Stay on Task; Break-free & Stay Focused are some of the most commonly used Apps for this purpose.

Avoid Procrastination

Do not give room for the postponement of any task that can be completed immediately. Do not derail from your daily schedule and avoid the urge to do house chores during your working hours; instead, schedule an appropriate time to get them done so that they don’t interfere with your work.

Take a Lunch and Walk Break

While working at home, time tends to move very quickly, especially when you aim at completing scheduled tasks. Indeed, you can sometimes forget to eat or change your sitting position for hours. Do not neglect the need to go on your usual lunch break like you would do if you were at the office; furthermore, take a few minutes to walk around, it helps you stretch your muscles and makes you feel refreshed. For every 55 minutes of work, you can indulge yourself in about 10-15 minutes of break to grab a cup of water or just get some fresh air.

Reward Yourself For Good Behavior and Concentration

For productivity sake, promise to give yourself a treat at the end of the day or after completing a strenuous task. When you feel satisfied with what you have achieved at the end of the day or week, put something together to reward your diligence and commitment.

Plan To Interact With Others At Specific Times

Staying at home to work can sometimes be mentally stressful and breed the feeling of loneliness; therefore, while practising self-isolation during this crucial period, endeavour to often interact with people living with or around you, just like you would with your colleagues at work.

Finally, working from home demands a lot of discipline and commitment on your part; however, you might not fully enjoy its benefits until you have been fully immersed in it. One last task which must not be overlooked while working from home is to Workout or Exercise regularly during the day. This helps your muscles to relax, improve your breathing, boost your immune system, focus your energy on what matters, and sometimes, inspire solutions to a task that has been proving difficult to solve.

In the midst of the virus outbreak, we are all advised to work from home, especially those who are career oriented. Let’s obey the rules as it will help stopping the spread of this pandemic virus.Be Safe!Source: Big Field Digital Ibadan Nigeria.

Career is Great, But Entrepreneurship is The Salt Of Life

The Richest
Man in China said:
_If you put Bananas and
Money in front of
Monkeys, Monkeys will
choose Bananas
because monkeys do
not know that *Money
can buy a lot of
Bananas.

_IN REALITY,
if you offer JOB and
BUSINESS to people,
they would choose JOB
because most people
do not know that
BUSINESS can bring
more MONEY than
Wages.

Similarly,
Robert Kiyosaki,
author of the best
selling book “RICH DAD,
POOR DAD” and also a
business partner of
Donald Trump said:
_”One of the reasons
poor are poor, is
because they are NOT
TRAINED TO RECOGNIZE
ENTREPRENEURSHIP

They spend too much
time in school and what
they have learnt in
school, is to WORK FOR
WAGES instead of
MONEY WORKING FOR
THEM.

“Profit is better than
Wages, for Wages can
make you a living but
Profits can bring you a
Fortune.”

THINK INVESTMENT
and stop fighting over
increments of salaries,
it still won’t be enough
……
Hear this from a
Professor to freshmen
and women during their
orientation:

(Actually
he is an Acting DVC
Academic at a small/
new university in
Kenya)
“Academic excellence is
overrated!
Being top of your class
does not necessarily
guarantee that you will
be at the top of life.
You could graduate as
the best student in
Finance but it doesn’t
mean you will make
more money than
everybody else.
The best graduating

The fact is, life requires
more than the ability to
understand a concept,
memorise it and
reproduce it in an exam.
School rewards people
for their memory.
Life rewards people for
their imagination.
School rewards caution,
life rewards daring.
School hails those who
live by the rules. Life
exalts those who break
the rules and set new
ones.

So do I mean people
shouldn’t study hard in
school? Oh, no, you
should. But don’t

Don’t limit yourself to

something practical.
Take a leadership

Entrepreneurship 101.

Join or start a good club.
Contest an election and
lose. It will teach you
something Political
Science 101 will not
teach you.

Attend seminars.
Read books outside the
scope of your course.
Go on missions and win
a soul for eternal

Do something you
believe in!
Think less of becoming
an excellent student
but think more of
becoming an excellent

Don’t make the

What We Can Learn As Christians From The Series: God Friended Me

The first time I saw the trailer on google, I was convinced that this series will play a major impact in my life and in many Christians.

God friended me is an American comedy- drama that centres in the life of an atheist who got a friend suggestion on facebook named God. This account suggests new friends suggestion to “miles” who plays the major character, in helping and assisting people.

As an atheist who doesn’t believe in God, yet he does God’s work, so far the aim is to help people in need.

Here are some tips we can learn from this wonderful series as Christians.

  • God can use anyone to do His work. No matter who you are or what your beliefs are, God uses anybody. Remember Jesus dined with sinners and mover with sinners.
  • God knows us more than ourselves. No matter what the flesh does, God sees us more through our hearts and inner mind.
  • Being a christian and born again doesn’t make you perfect. As God uses the weak ans non believers to do His works, it’s a sign that God is not partiality.
  • Finally, God loves each and everyone of us.

I encourage you to start watching this series if you have not started watching. There are a lot of lessons to be learnt.

NB: feel free to comment your contributions and suggestions.

How My Interview Discussion With Popular Master Of Ceremony (MC) In Nigeria “MC AYULAH”: Will Make You Focus On Your Passion And Talent

He is talented and will make your ceremony worth every penny, and time. He is intelligent, funny, and knows how to move the crowd. He is one of Nigeria’s sort after and demanding MC in town with a lot trending positive reviews. He is the CEO of Speaking Services Nigeria.

Guys help me welcome MC Ayulah!

1. Tell us a bit about your background, school, and Where are you from?

My name is Ayobami Yusuf popularly known as MC Ayulah. I am a native of Omu Aran in, Kwara State. My primary education was at Abdul Aziz Attah Memorial Nursery & Primary School Ilorin while I had my secondary education at Federal Government College, Ilorin. I proceeded to The Federal Polytecnic Bida, Niger state where I bagged a diploma certificate in Civil Engineering before proceeding to University of Ilorin where I bagged my first degree and Masters degree in Geology.

2. How was life growing up?

Growing up was absolute fun. A lot has changed now. We didn’t have 24hours television. Children played together on the streets. We had real friends both in school and at home. We listened to folklore stories. All I remember about growing up is all beautiful

3. At what age in your life did you decide you wanted to be an MC?

Ohh… I am barely 5 years in the industry. It was a decision I took a few years back while I was working as an engineer with one of the leading telecoms servicing company in Lagos. After five years with the company, I decided I wanted more. I needed to chase my passion and be more. So I started anchoring events while still on the job before I finally left.

Me: wow! That’s a big risk and decision you took… so!

4. How do you cope working virtually every weekend, managing your time and schedule?

Time management is one of the essential qualities every MC must possess. Many times I work on weekends (weddings and birthdays) but sometimes times I get to work on weekdays too (Corporate events). On my free days.

5. Is being an MC a burden or a blessing or a bit of both?

Being a professional MC is absolutely a blessing for all who recognizes it. This is because we get to meet different people almost every week and this alone provides us an opportunity to network with a lot of people including those who matter in the society.
So far I have not been able to identify a major disadvantage of being an emcee and my mentors have not told me any too.

6. What challenges have you had to tackle as a professional at your job?

First is to make people understand that a Pro MC is not the same as a comedian. Many out there confuse an emcee with a standup comedian. You necessarily don’t have to be able to tell jokes before you can successfully be a pro MC. Although you must have a good sense of humor to succeed.

Me: which similarly looks like comedy. What I have noticed is that there is comedy in everything that we do. But now I kinda get your point and am sure my readers are aware of the differences now.

7. In your opinion, what is the most difficult part in your line of business?

Having to read voraciously to be current is one. The other is the ability to stay abreast of situations and be on top of everything that presents itself either at events or behind the scenes

8. What’s the weirdest thing a client/follower has ever told you?

I don’t think that weird moment has come…

9. Your confidence is so bold, especially when you handle the mic, do you sometimes have the fear of stage
fright?

Stage fright? No I conquered that long time ago. I have always been a stage boy from my primary school days when we danced on stage and acted plays at the schools functions. In my secondary school days, I was in drama and cultural troupe. So when I decided to grace the stage as an emcee, it wasn’t an issue.

10. Which other professional are you looking forward to working with or have something coming out with?

I would love to work with a lot of people – Ik Osakioduwa, Gbemileke Oyisan, Teju Babyface and many more.

Me: these guys are great MC legends. You got good taste!

11. If you had a chance to work with one person in the world, who would it be?

As a professional MC, you can be paired to work with anyone and whoever it is, you must display absolute professionalism but nothing beats when you share the stage with your mentors and role models.

12. What are your top 3 points in your note or pad that you always reflect on?

Never let them see you sweat
Irrespective of where you find yourself, Give your best always

13. Aside the unemployment nature of the country, what drove you to become an MC?

Well for me, the choice to be an MC was more of wanting to pursue my passion than being unemployed. I resigned my job as a telecoms specialist after 5years to focus on being a full time professional MC.

14. What are some things that you would like to accomplish but not in view yet in your profession?

There a quite a lot but top on the list is to anchor destination weddings

15. What advice would you give to unmotivated and non- inspired people around the world. Please explain???

God has equipped everyone with a special ability and talent embedded inside us. We need to further dig deep to discover these gifts and use them solve the problems around us.

16. What’s next for MC Ayulah?
For now, the focus is to get better at the craft and probably explore new terrain and opportunities.

Thank you so much for your time. We wish you the best of all your heart desires and endeavours.

My Interview With Online Professional Psychiatrist- Dr. Tomi

She is one of Nigerian’s foremost Psychiatrist, a mentor and an influencer. Her engagement on Instagram has helped a lot of people mentally and physically. She is intelligent and very smart. Ladies and Gentlemen I give you Dr. Tomi.

Dr. Tomi

You are welcome.

First things first, we appreciate your time and availability to conduct this interview. Please we will like to know you more by asking some questions.

1. Tell us a bit about your background, school,  and Where were you from?
I’m from Ilesha in Osun State. I am married with two children. I studied Medicine and Surgery at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State. I did my residency training in Psychiatry at Federal Neuropsychiatric Hospital, Yaba, Lagos. I had my postgraduate studies in Psychology (MSc) at Walden University, Minnesota, USA.

Me: Wow this is huge…


2. How was life growing up?
Life was simple when I was young. I grew up in a university quarters and saw first hand how to live a simple life without the pressure of impressing anyone. In fact, there was no one around to impress! The houses were the same, the ranks and positions were the same, the schools were the same, the clothes were the same etc. We learnt to turn inwards to find our individuality. I thoroughly loved it.

Me: Something we should all learn to admit and adapt…


3. At what age in your life did you decide you wanted to be psychiatrist?
My interest in Psychiatry goes as far back as my 18th birthday. I was curious about the human mind and finding there was a field dedicated to studying it was great news to me. However, I chose to complete my degree in Medicine and find a path to my passion from it.

Dr. Tomi

4. How do you cope running a fast growing platform on social media?
I love creating mental health awareness and social media has been a crucial vehicle in driving these efforts. Running this platform is not stressful because it’s connected to what I love. It’s almost effortless.

Me: Very true…


5. Is being a psychiatrist a burden or a blessing or a bit of both?
Helping people restore and/or maintain their mental health is not a burden at all. It’s a privilege.


6. What challenges have you had to tackle as a psychiatrist?
Stigmatization of the profession has been a challenge. It is not only mentally ill people that are stigmatized. Mental health professionals too face stigma from the society. People often act differently once they find out I’m a Psychiatrist. It’s almost predictable. That’s why we are focusing on awareness.


7. In your opinion,  what is the most difficult part in mental health and well-being?
Taking the step to get help when facing mental health challenges is the most difficult step I can think of.


8. What’s the weirdest thing a patient/ follower has ever told you?
“Are you a real doctor?”

Me: I can’t stop laughing, this is really funny…


9. Your confident is so bold, especially when you dive into sex talk, do you sometimes have the fear of people’s reaction?
My focus is creating an enabling environment for people to talk freely about these issues that are cloaked in silence. I can’t do that effectively by being vague or silent. The number of people that reach out via Direct Messages make the efforts worthwhile. So, no, I don’t fear the reactions of a few people.


10. Which other professional are you looking forward in working with or have something coming out with?
I look forward to working with Mainstream Media professionals. There are so many ways they can influence social change. It’s amazing! I do hope some of them will join us in changing the narrative about mental health.

Me: Hopefully…


11. If you had a chance to work with one person in the world,  who would it be?
Professor Abiodun Adewuya. He is a Professor of Psychiatry at Lagos State University Teaching Hospital. He is my teacher and mentor. Any opportunity to work with him will always be a delight. That’s the thing. There are already amazing people in our lives. Let’s build those relationships.


12. What are your top 3 points in your note or pad that you always reflect on?
A) Family life B) Long term career goals C) Mental Health Awareness


13. Aside the unemployment nature of the country, what drove you to become an influencer?
I see myself as a mental health Advocate. Unemployment rate of the country does not directly influence my choice. The major drive is stigma. Anything I can say or do that will lessen stigmatization of the mental ill in the world will be a worthy venture.


14. How do you manage to be a Christian and a psychiatrist?
It took me a long time to understand how my profession fits into my christian faith. I finally have my peace about that. I believe that emotional well-being is best anchored in spiritual well-being if it’s to be sustainable and holistic. We have to take care of our spirits, souls, and bodies. It’s okay if it’s not popular opinion. It works well for me.

15. What are your goals to fight emotional well-being and mental health in Nigeria?

a) reduce STIGMA b) reduce SUICIDE c) improve SEX for women.


16. Do you think the situation is increasing or decreasing?
What situation? The rate of mental illness in the country. But that is by the way, with your contribution on social media i think it is decreasing.


17. What are some things that you would like to accomplish but not in view yet in your career?
I will love to be a Professor and teach young minds about mental health but it is not in view just yet.


18. What advice would you give to unmotivated and uninspired people around the world. Please explain???
People can be transiently unmotivated and uninspired. However, if it’s persistent, please change your life. You are not too old to start over.

Dr. Tomi

19. What’s next for Dr. Tomi?
Scaling up of mental health awareness nationwide. Advocacy directed towards government, policy makers, and stakeholders. That’s just the start.


Thank you for having me.

You welcome!

3 Questions To Confirming Your Purpose

Hey guys, thanks for stopping by.

Today I will be pointing out 3 questions to confirming your purpose.

real success story in the mountain,sport couple woman with successful with sunset

Purpose is the feeling of having a definite aim and of being determined to achieve it. A very important thing you want to achieve in life.

Living a life without regret is a universal desire. I’ve had too many sleepless nights around the question, “is this it?” I’ve worked hard… and even had some great achievements, but at times, I’m still troubled by the missed opportunities, the things I’ve never said, the trips I never took, or decisions I’ve failed to make. This is regret.

It’s the feeling of missing out. It can sap your passion, poison your future, and even have an effect on those around you. It leads me to this positive thought:

“In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.”

But in the end, we can’t do it all. We all realize life is moving faster and faster to our final day – and we understand a life without regret is impractical, but how do we live life with less regret? How can we chase our dreams, live our passion, and love our lives all at the same time?

3 Critical Questions to Confirming Your Purpose:

  1. What are you most passionate about? – (Design and Creativity, Charity, Tutor, Entrepreneurship, Etc.)
  2. Who’s most important to you? (Spouse, Best Friend, Cousin, Parents, Children, Strangers, Etc.)
  3. Where is your favorite place on earth? (NYC, Spain, Canada, Australia, Hawaii, Your Home, Church, Etc.)

If you’re doing what you’re passionate about, with the people most important to you, in place that excites you, you are living the dream.

Now, it’s up to you to not only answer these questions but to make at least one of them happen this year… because remember, in the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.

Let’s hear from you in our comment section.

Have a productive day!
