For me starting a project is not the issue but
starting well and maintaining the pace no
matter how small.

Improving your life means a lot of things. It
means that you should not only
developmentally but also become healthier and
financially progressive.

In this article, I am going to share more on my
personal experience in 2018.
How I changed my life by changing my
approach to things.

3 Effective Ways You Can Change Your Life
in 2019

#1. Read books

Readers are leaders. It is generally said that
the easiest way to conceal anything from a
black man is by writing it down in a book.

Unfortunately, in this part of the world, we
want to learn a lot but we don't want to set
out time to study it. We do not have time to
read and get the desired and useful

When I started reading, I told myself that I
want to be reading one book every month and
by the time I got to the fourth month, I
realized that I have read 7 books, that is 3
books extra.

Reading has a way of sharpening your inner
mind and restructuring your mentality,
especially when you are reading motivational
books or personal experience of successful

In case you are confused about the kind of
book to start with then I would advise that you
start with motivational and inspirational books
and later you can read other kinds like career
books or even business related books.

Start today and I guarantee you that you will
be happy with the changes you will see within
yourself in few months to come.

#2. Learn a skill

When we talk about learning a skill what comes
to mind is the cost associated with learning
such skills.

Sometimes we are so concerned about the cost
of learning a new skill that we forget that there
are lots of benefits and ways to learn such a
skill at no cost on platforms like on the

For starters, I recommend that you teach
yourself by going online to get resources that
are related to your field of interest.
I have noticed that anything you teach yourself
stays in you forever.

There are several skills you can easily acquire
and use it to better your life when you have
reached an appreciable level on that skill.

#3. Stop doing free jobs

You need to know that nothing is free even in

After you must have developed a skill which
might have cost you some token, never
underestimate the knowledge you have or the
amount you spent trying to acquire that
knowledge no matter how little you spent.

Politely ask for a payment when you are
approached to use that skill to solve a
My life change in 2018 the moment I decided
to stop using my tech skills for free.

Let me tell you the story about the incident
that influenced my decision.

One of my bosses travelled to America for a
course and bought a Samsung phone worth
over 230,000 during his stay there.

When he requested for the phone to be
configured and his contacts transferred from
his old blackberry by a technician over there
in the UK he was asked to pay about $100.
Guess what? He refused and waited till he
returned to Nigeria and narrated his
experience to me. He now asked me to do the
same job for him.

I took the pains and even used my mobile
internet data to be able to achieve the desired
result. After doing all that he just said thank
you when I handed him the phone.

I was unhappy because I know he understands
the importance of the job I did for him and
that he wouldn't get that done with less than
5,000 Naira at computer village in Lagos here.

So after that experience, I will simply tell you
what it will cost you the moment you request
for my services outside my stipulated job
functions in my office.
