‪#‎BGIT‬ Bless God It’s Tuesday-PUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE TO USE

I woke up this morning to see a surprise message on my phone as an ardent follower of the weekly ‪#‎BGIM‬ (Bless God It’s Monday) was enquiring as at 45 minutes to midnight yesterday WHY yesterday’s #BGIM wasn’t released. Not that I forgot to release yesterday’s Edition but that I had something special in mind.

Since the #BGIM series is targeted at we seeing work in a different way: Seeing work as the means through which God primarily blesses us since the Bible says ok a countless number of times that God would bless us through the work of our hand. Hence as we do our various work and tasks wholeheartedly and diligently, all of the Father’s blessings would come to pass in our lives. So for the next 4 editions, I have decided that every OTHER working day of the week would have it’s special Edition‪#‎BGI‬….

PUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE TO USE.

As I learnt from my Basic School’s motto, Knowledge is POWER. Yes!!! Knowledge is power but sadly most of us are NOT putting our knowledge to USE. And when I talk of putting knowledge to use I mean FULL USE and not partial usage. The more you know, the more you are to use.

Knowledge, as I was once informed by an elderly person, is NOT ONLY acquired in the DIRECT means of transfer like in a school, through time with a more knowledgeable person such as in training, through reading books, through communication devices like television, radio, internet etc but also INDIRECTLY through Observation and Meditation. So whatever means it takes for you to acquire that knowledge, the purpose of that acquisition is for you to put it to use.

Putting knowledge to use requires a critical trait of COMBINING the knowledge acquired from different fields and backgrounds, that’s why the teams that work on big, big projects have experts from various fields because though the task might primarily be under one field, it can’t be completed without the expertise of other fields of knowledge. This implies that every kind of knowledge is USEFUL.

A friend was once charging her phone about 20 minutes to the start of a wedding due to Dumsor (Power Outage) at her home but surprisingly was using her phone actively during that same period and as I walked to her I told if she really wanted her phone to be charged enough before the wedding started, she should put her Mobile Data OFF and if possibly put her phone OFF as well. (Reason: NET Charging Rate of phone is faster when phone is not used than when used). Application of knowledge done here, though i don’t have an Electrical background. Same applies everywhere, if your office/ room is unusually warm, what do you do despite the fan in use? Simply ASK what is preventing/reducing the circulation of air. Solve it, then enjoy the atmosphere. No challenge can’t be overcome if we put our knowledge to use.
If anytime you send an email to your colleagues, some complain of not receiving it. To detect where the problem is just add your mail also to the Recipients Lists and if you don’t receive it yourself in your Inbox, you would then know where the problem is. And afterwards, you can make it conscious effort of always CC yourself in any mail.

Remember, the point is to put your knowledge to use and NOT restrict the use of your knowledge.

KNOWLEDGE + USE= RESULTS

RESULTS= BLESSINGS

‪#‎BGIM‬ Bless God It’s Monday-DO THINGS BETTER

‪#‎BGIM‬ Bless God It’s Monday

Working activity for the New Year is in full swing now, hence I want to admonish us all on something essential to make us see MORE of God’s promised blessings in this year.

DO THINGS BETTER

Yeah, I meant it. ‘Do Things Better’. Most people when they hear about doing better things think it is all about further education / more training but I tell you this day, you can do things better even without them.

Ask yourself,
~What I have done better this year?
~What I have added to the things I usually do to make it better?
~How have I corrected the things that didn’t go on well the last time?
~And how have I worked to improve on the good things I did the other time?

And you see that you don’t necessarily need further education/ more education to answer the aforeasked questions.

Life, as quoted by WRITE_S © is said “to be an UNENDING Learning Process

An unending learning process towards the betterment of the things we do. Learning from yesterday to improve today.

Hence, I find it disheartening anytime I see people REPEAT the Same things they did the last time round especially the mistakes, and surprisingly expect Better/ Improved Results.
For which I’m sad to say that most of us just DON’T learn. And I mean it to the very letter. And I perceive it’s because most of us think learning should always be somewhat STRUCTURED like in a Formal manner but NO! NO!! NO!!! It doesn’t always need to be so. Watch this.

 

-Last time, the main problem in organising that event/meeting was Delayed/ Late Communication. You don’t have to let it repeat itself.

-Last time, it was your Sound System, work on it assiduously this time round.

-Last time, inadequate photocopies was the problem. This time round, make ENOUGH copies.

*Last time, your Good Publicity was what worked the Trick. This time, IMPROVE on it massively.

*Last time, Adequate Preparation was the trick. This time take your Preparation to another level. Make it even better.

 

Yeah, these are the things when we do would bring about BETTER RESULTS and MORE Manifestation of God’s Blessing. It won’t be perfect always but just make sure you work at improving it always by doing things better.

#‎BGIM‬ Bless God It’s Monday- MAKE YOURSELF USEFUL

‪#‎BGIM‬ Bless God It’s Monday

2016 is here with us and today being the 1st Monday or to most people the 1st Working Day of this New Year, I admonish that we give out all our best this year so that we can see the BEST Results in our lives this year. I thank God you’re alive to see His Goodness once AGAIN this year.

MAKE YOURSELF USEFUL!!!

What did I just say?
Make yourself USEFUL.
Yeah, it’s been established that in this world, there’s nobody God created without Purpose or ‘A Use’. Everybody has a USE in this world, whatever the situation maybe.

You might not be seen to be of any use where you find yourself but I urge you to just make yourself Useful. Because if you don’t make yourself useful, sadly you become wasted. You might ask but there’s nothing for me to do?, and I would tell you there’s something you can do whether you’re tasked or not. Anytime, we sit down with our arms folded, our gift, talent/skill we think we always have would become dormant and the day we might be ready to SPARK it up, we would be surprised it won’t be there in the Full Measure we expect it.

 

~If you’re in an office and there’s some ICT stuff that needs Technologically Survy people to do, make yourself USEFUL in that manner, don’t say “That’s not my job and I wouldn’t be paid for it”.

~If you’re in school, and there’s a Music Concert, and you can be of Use in any manner, kindly bring your skills on board, don’t say I am not part of the Committee or part of the Singing Group.

~If you’re in your community and they are Organising a Program for the Children in the Neighbourhood, make yourself useful in anyway possible, whether bringing other kids you know to the event, coming along with any Kids Stuff you have or bringing on board a Contact you know that might be skilled in Issues relating to Children, etc.

~If you’re at home or work and Errands need to be run and you’re Well-Equipped and Available, don’t Drag your Feet. Be willing to go on that Errand.

~If you go for a program/ to a place and something needs to be done, say carrying of chairs, water, serving of meals, and there’s the need for help, make yourself useful.

~If you visit your Auntie or Uncle or any relative, and you can help with the kids, make yourself useful: their homework, play with them, watch TV with them and so on and so forth.

So you might ask why am I giving all these suggestions, don’t I know people would TEND to use you for FREE in that manner and some people would even be UNWELCOMING to you when you try to be Useful. Yes, I know all of that.

But what I want to tell you is that the things you do for free are the same things you would be paid for very soon when your Potential is developed.

You might be doing it for free now and you might be treated unfairly now but don’t forget that all this time, you’re trying your Hands at something. In this time, you have the luxury of LEARNING so much on the Job for FREE without the fear of being AXED for Poor-performance. Ahaa, you never knew.
(NB: That doesn’t mean you should do it ANYHOW)

You get the chance to have Experience in so many things by this principle such that in the time, you are ready to do yours, BAM!!! you’re Equipped in every area necessary, along with Knowing all the Competent People to bring on Board and where and where to get Help when the need arises.

So I believe that in this new year and beyond, we have to make ourselves more USEFUL wherever we find ourselves whether for free, whether we’re paid peanuts or paid bountifully. Just make yourself USEFUL this year.
Remember, Facebook started at Harvard University for free and is now the world’s most visited Website after the popular Google Search Engine Website in 1st place, making Millions & Billions of Dollars for its owners.
