This is a quick follow up to yesterday’s post on Time Management…and is a continuation of my response to the issue/question raised by Teegirl on how to spend her time more creatively, hence more productively…I have reproduced her comment in it’s original form below, highlighting the portion that informed this follow-up post;

“Very interesting. No. 4 is a new concept 4 me bt i sure hv learnt something new. 4give my genuity and lack of creativity, I hv 24hrs in a day bt spend more than 18hrs being idle. Wot advise can i gt bcos i c dat am not only being unproductive bt also wasting a very Valuable resource Time“.

The following list is only suggestive, and is not in any way exhaustiveplease feel free to add to the list by way of comments, or you can email your additions to me and I will update the post accordingly…

dont-give-up1So here goes… my 10 ideas for using your time creatively, and productively…

1. Read books…on a wide variety of topics…no knowledge gained is ever a waste…

2. Write a book…as I said to Teegirl yesterday in my response to her; a page a day, a chapter at a time…or start a blog as I have done…

3. Volunteer with a charity organisation…for example, Christian Aid…or get a part-time job…

4. Join a club/group…a fitness club, a book club, a knitting group, etc…

5. Learn something new…how to sew, preparing a new dish, a musical instrument…

6. Take a course…on Management, Social work, Communication skills, or anything else that tickles you…

7. Go back to school…you are never too old to acquire a/another degree…be it your first, or a Masters, a Phd, or a Professional qualification…

8. Teach…share your knowledge on any area that you feel competent at…opportunities abound for graduates to Teach First…remember what they say about knowledge shared?

9. Turn a hobby/passion/talent, into a money-making venture…eg. start charging a fee for those lovely cakes you bake, or the hair you fix for others…

10. I leave this one to Teegirl…I’m sure you get my drift now…

Want to add to this list? I’ld love to hear from you…hit the comments button now…

Cheers

I thank God I’m not poor, I believe I’m better off than Middle class, a friend refered to me as “rich” today, while chatting…but I’ll rather be flourishing…

According to G.O (Pastor E.A Adeboye ), “rich” doesn’t cut it…”wealthy” is not enough…”flourishing” is the state that every child of God should aspire to be at…

Thinking about the word “flourishing” today, I decided to get a better understanding of the word…so, I consulted the dictionary. My research produced the following dictionary definitions for “flourishing”;

  • to grow well or luxuriantly; to thrive
  • growing vigorously; thriving; prosperous

  • to do or fare well; to prosper

  • to be in a period of highest productivity, excellence, or influence

Waoh! I particularly love the last definition…I would rather be “in a period of highest productivity, excellence, or influence”, than be just “rich”.

On another level, I miss hubby…one of the perks of his job is frequent international travel…I don’t complain because it’s a priviledge not everyone gets, plus its usually only for a week at a time.

You need to have heard my “heenn?” (i.e. whaaat?) when he told me he was going to be away for 3 weeks (though within the country). Three weeks? Ha! I’ll go with you oh…I started grumbling. Then he said “haba! do you honestly believe I’ld be in this country, and not see you for 3 weeks? of course I’ll be home at weekends”…hmmm…my mind settled…its day 3 of week 1, and I miss him sore…
