Choose Activities That Will Provide both Short-Term and Long-Term Returns



I just finished the first draft of my book, Mastering Relationship Etiquette for Singles: Your Guide to Navigating the Dating Scene with Grace this morning, and I'm feeling really proud of myself. Of course, there's still a lot of work to be done before it's ready for publication. I have to revise and write subsequent drafts, but I'm praying for the strength and fortitude to bring it to a polished, finished draft.

 

Today, I wanted to share a quick tip with you about maximizing your time. When it comes to investing your time, it's crucial to choose activities that will provide both short-term and long-term returns.

 

Another important factor to consider when investing your time is the consequences. Every action you take can have positive or negative consequences. Sometimes things will go as planned, and other times they won't.

 

However, even negative consequences don't necessarily mean that your efforts are in vain. It may mean that you need to change your approach or persevere through a difficult season. In all things, spend your time wisely. When you're old and frail, you'll look back on your life and wish you had spent your time more productively.

 

Remember, it's better to try and fail than to do nothing and have nothing to show for your time.

 

I hope you have a wonderful week. The RCCG Annual Holy Ghost Congress is taking place this week. If you can, I would like you to attend in person or watch it online. May you and I both experience Divine Repositioning in our destiny. Amen!

 

Damilola Ogunremi,

Love and Light

Hard Times A Poem by Damilola Ogunremi


 Hard times, oh hard times, they build our strength like clay

Molding us into something strong, day by day

With every trial and test, we grow and become

A masterpiece of resilience, a work of art divine.

 

In the furnace of adversity, we're forged and refined

Our inner strength and character intertwine

Like steel that's tempered in fire, we emerge anew

Ready to face whatever life may bring to view.

 

The wisdom born of hardship guides us on our way

To a future bright and full of grace

For though the path be winding and long

We know that in the end, we'll find our place

 

So let not hard times discourage or dismay

For in them lies the power to make us stay

Stronger than before, with hearts of gold

And destinies that shine like stars in the cold.

How to Escape Writing a Poor Story


 

Writing a poor story can be frustrating and discouraging for any writer. So, here are a few tips to help you avoid writing a poor story:

 

1. Plan and outline your story: Before you start writing, take some time to plan your story and create an outline. This will help you identify any potential plot holes or weak points in your story early on.

 

2. Develop your characters: Creating well-rounded and interesting characters is crucial to engaging your readers. Spend time developing your characters' personalities, motivations, and backstories to make them more relatable and engaging.

3. Show, don't tell: Avoid simply telling your readers what's happening in your story. Instead, use descriptive language and sensory details to show them what's happening and engage their imagination.

 

4. Edit and revise: Once you've finished your first draft, take some time to edit and revise your work. Look for areas where the story may be weak or confusing, and make changes to strengthen those areas.

 

5. Get feedback: Finally, share your work with others and ask for feedback. This can help you identify areas where your story may be weak or confusing, and give you new ideas for how to improve it.

Authors' Curtilage Quotes | Take the Necessary Measures Before Quitting

 


REMINDER: IF THERE'S A WILL, THERE'S A WAY!



What do you want to do but are holding back from doing?



When you think of this specific thing you want to do, what do you tell yourself?



Do you utilise any of the following defences?

"I don't have time."
"I don't have the resources."
"I don't have the money."
"I don't have the connection.
"I don't know where to go."
"I don't know what to do."



Today, I want to give you some advice: Don't let your perception stop you from going after anything. If you don't know enough about the subject of what you want to do, research it and educate yourself.



The reality of things is sometimes not what is perceived. So, don't let yourself be restrained. If the block you're experiencing comes from your thoughts, now is the time to leave your illusion.


Break free from the fear and excuses that have you bound.


Sometimes, barriers are placed in our way by others' influence, enmity, ill will, envy, harsh words said to us, etc. Whatever it is, trust me when I say you it's all mental, and you can walk out of it.



Lift up your hands and do what little you can to accomplish the task you have in mind.



Start pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone today, go for your goals, and broaden your horizons.



During this month of October, deal with the things that are holding you back that aren't really worth it.



May your answer be close as you allow yourself to be open-minded and consider various possibilities to realise your goals.



Love and light
💚 💡



Damilola Ogunremi,
Your friend and Coach.
