1 HAVE A PLAN ( GOALS ) – Simple. The best way to get things done is to decide you’re going to do it (and then to write it down and tell people about it). So these life improvements you’re about to make? Think of them as goals. Like New Year’s resolutions that don’t happen on New Year’s and actually stick and make you feel good.

2 DROP WHAT YOU SHOULDN’T TOLERATE  – Now that you have a few things you’ve identified, start getting rid of them. In fact, this could be your goal. Fix that issue and don’t let the issue drag you because it would use you as an anchor . Tell your self  that the sentence, “I am the best there is , TO BE  ….. i don’t wanna brag ( in John Legends voice )  buy yourself a gift every time you accomplish some of those issues that make your head all worked out for no reason . Imagine how good it will be see that list of yours shrink!

 3,  PLAN YOUR CASH . Another simple thing you can do to improve your life is to start a budget. Even if ends are meeting just fine, the benefit of a budget is that you can see what you can set aside and start working toward something rewarding. So instead of living life frugally, take an hour to figure out your spending habits and what you have to work with. Maybe there’s another 10,000 Naira  in there that can start your little business 


4 , BE IN CONTROL OF YOUR TIME –  A simple mistake plenty of us make is that we do all the right things…we just don’t do them in the right order or we spend too much time on the unimportant or during our most mentally productive hours, we end up doing basically nothing . Time is, unfortunately, of the essence, it’s fleeting, and a stitch in it saves 9 later. If you get good at managing it, you may even find more for the fun stuff.

5 , LEAVE WORK AT WORK . Once you leave work, don’t spend the night thinking about that email your boss sent you. Don’t interrupt dinner to make one last phone call. If you’re going to work beyond work, then work — don’t spend your free time free in body, but totally preoccupied in mind. What a drag…….

6 , COUNT YOUR BLESSING LIST THEM OUT . It’s a little cheesy, sure, but it does have value. It’s so easy to see that green grass over there — when in fact you’re just not looking down to see that your grass is green, too. So pull up Notepad or Sticky Notes after this paragraph and scribble down a few. You’ll literally see what you’ve got going for you. And it’ll feel good.

7 , CONCENTRATE ON YOUR STRENGTHS . Being crappy at six languages won’t do you a lot of good. Being able to use the qwerty keys unfortunately doesn’t make you a social media expert or blogger . If there’s something you’re interested in, go all out! When you master something, you have something to be proud of. Something to talk about. Something you understand and love. So instead of spreading yourself thin, zero in on one. Then you can reap the benefits!

8, INSTIGATE A SELF IMAGE CAMPAIGN  If someone tells you can’t change your personality, they’re wrong. You can go from an introvert to an extrovert, you can go from awkward to socially apt and you can go from hating yourself to loving yourself (just to name three). So if the way you view yourself is keeping you from being happy, start doing something about it. It may take a while, but what good thing doesn’t?

9 , IS YOUR RELATIONSHIP .. THE RELATIONSHIP ? . As much as we hate to admit it, plenty of us would rather be with someone who makes us miserable than sleep alone. Why is that? What’s so terrible about being by yourself? And this doesn’t just go for romantic relationships — we keep around friends that are detrimental to us, too. So look at yours. Is there someone in your life who shouldn’t be? Why are you keeping them around?

10 , CHANGE OF JOB CAN BE ANSWER FOR YOU . “Not exactly the economy I want to do it in,” is what you’re thinking, isn’t it? And that’s okay. We’re not saying quit your job, be broke, and barely survive until you find another one. We’re saying just start looking. There could be an opportunity out there that you never would’ve found if you didn’t look. Jobs don’t often fall on doorsteps anymore! So instead of slumping around your current one, secretly waiting for when Steve Jobs’ ghost comes to you in the night with an offer you can’t refuse, start searching. There’s no harm in it.

11, KEEP YOUR PROGRESS REPORTS . When you complete a list of action steps, your instinct might be to throw the list away. After all, the work is completed! However, some creative professional teams take a different approach; they relish their progress. Some go so far as surrounding themselves with it
