#BGIM- Bless God It’s Monday: TIME TO IMPROVE



Another Monday is here with us. Hope you enjoyed your weekend? And it was relaxing as well. After all our spiritual activities to seek God’s blessings on Friday, Saturday & Sunday, it’s time to work to see GOD’S BLESSINGS in our lives.


Improvement is needed by everybody. All of us need to improve in life. But the sad thing is our perception about improvement.


The word IMPROVEMENT does not mean one is bad but that he can do BETTER. And everyone can surely better what he is doing now. Let me share one notable story of improvement with us.


Lionel Messi is arguably one of the best footballers of all-time. But somewhere in 2011 or 2012, at the time when he was the REIGNING World Best, he started taking free-kicks for his club side, Barcelona. Personally, I was glad because I wondered why a player with good curling ability and placement technique never took freekicks.

It was not as though Messi needed that free-kick taking ability to establish him as the AUTHENTIC Best Player but I feel he challenged himself to taking free-kicks. And I can say without any iota of doubt that Lionel Messi has perfected that skill so much that he plays it better than the THEN ALREADY-KNOWN Free-Kick taking Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid. (Please I don’t want any Messi versus Ronaldo argument emanating from this article).

Messi has since then saved his team on several occasions or helped his Barcelona team win matches because of this added skill of free-kicking taking to the extent that he even has a free-kick amongst his 5 World Cup goals for Argentina.


If such a super professional like Messi was willing to improve himself, how much more you and I? We have to improve in every aspect of our lives: be it in our communication skills, interpersonal relationships, analytical ability, punctuality, skills sets, knowledge, religious life etc.

An indigenous African proverb says if water stays at a place for long (i.e stagnates), it smells. I believe you and I need to improve be it going back to school, taking refresher courses, attending seminars, learning a new skill amongst others. The word is IMPROVE.

#BGIM Bless God It’s Monday-ACCOUNTING is Necessary


#BGIM is back after that long absence with an article on Accounting and the need to be accountable.


Every successful business in this world has proven to be a business with strong accounting principles. The Manager accounts for what is given him and how he uses it. The workers also account for how they use resources handed over to them.


In such highly accountable institutions where even a needle is accounted for, many people see such an organization as STRICT, MISERLY & too ECONOMICAL. But I say to you this day, that it is these same institutions that are thriving and have thrived over the last decades.


We have to account for whatever is kept in our care that’s why in the Parable of the Talents in Matthew 25:14-30, the master asked his servants to SETTLE ACCOUNTS with him after his trip.


If you see shopkeepers, taking stock everyday at the close of day before going home, it is not for the pleasure of it but for the financial principle behind it. If you don’t do same in your shop, I hope from today you begin to learn from them.


Aside wastage, strong accounting principles help to bring out the best in workers because they know they would have to give account in whatever they do. And when your workers start giving off their best, you are sure to move to new levels of growth and success as you would see the blessings of God manifested in your Increased Profit Margins & Revenues.


So if you don’t have good accounting principles in your place of work, abode and even worship, I recommend you read FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT BOOKS this week to secure all the blessings God brings your way as an obedient Christian or person.
