Why being efficient can literally save your life

The days of our lives are when we are living, no matter what are we are doing but we are surviving and hoping for the next day and so on and so on. Now imagine on your days you get your work on time, your schedule on time or even earlier

The parkerson law

The law states that’s your income rises to meets your expenses, same applies to time you busy rises to meet the equivalent time you have on the day. This Law can be forced it hand to work for you by simply stop procrastinating or delaying tasks and when you do those tasks avoid distractions or schedule distractions as well for example don’t go one hour head down on the project but rather split it in 15 minutes then 5 minutes breaks.

This idea may seems like less efficient but trust me it is ,on the other hand if you are a creative person you can simply decide not to get out of your zone until you have finished your verse or your painting or that’s line of code.

Question may be what’s if I work with people ,say you work at SARS taxation government institution for example ,what I saw from an old woman there who I really found she was really efficient  was no small talk and she was literally running to the printing machine to get papers and letting me sign.

When it’s comes to the money there are lot of strategies but it’s easy to start them the moment you found yourself having money e.g. you got a new job set up a stop order that’s will take portion of the money automatically, I did that’s when I got my first high paying job and by the time I got retrenched I had 250 000 in my account. So be efficient in both your financial life and productivity.

Downside to effectiveness of efficiency

Anything has positive and negatives, left and right, disadvantage and advantages, hot and cold your job is to find what works well for which situation is. In studying when trying to do the assignment needed end of the month on the next day you got it ,results becomes amazing but if you do it under pressure on the last minute depending on the type of person you are other’s give terrible results other strive on it.

Don’t run the risk of not getting the work done, I once thought I gave my best when I work under pressure but I ended up studying in a taxi and rarely get a grip of what’s I learnt and as a results fail the tests.

Tomorrow I’m going for a job interview it’s a no brainer that’s I have to be there on time but if inefficient is my habit I can suffer those consequences so I need to get myself on the right track and prep for the big day. It’s not just being there on time but think about the effective respond to questions and when I’m given the chance to ask questions I should have smart questions.

Another problem when trying to be early you lose batch of time when nothing happens to cause latency ,for example I have an interview at 8:00 and I arrive there at 6:30 its crucial how I spend this time cause that’s still a moment of my life being recorded and accounted for. I may have a small talk with others who are waiting for the same thing or read a book on job interview but be careful of not causing myself unnecessary anxiety and so on.

Saving your life part

As I explain in the intro life is made out of seconds and minutes once you finish a task of an hour within 45 minutes you give yourself a 15 minute break to do what you is ever like and that’s true living.

On other hand if say you on a negotiation meeting and your company or you are an independent sales man and you know the sooner you close you get your fat commission or split the difference and hurry to your vacation with your family ,here the sooner the better is the mantra but rule of thumb never allow time to put you under pressure on negotiation but if you have got your number you have to option bargain hard or hurry to the vacation one may lengthen the talks while the other may lengthen the vacation it your choice but when factoring time closing is a good option.

This automatically and temporally save your life from working to actually living , here is the big one as an example how fast can you work in order for you to retire early? It’s can be office work or physical work they both take toll on your physical and mental health so the difference is irrelevant at this point, working fast is not an answer but working hard and smart is see working on you after hours is more important in your life because it will give you ideas on how you can retire early.

On other hand working hard and getting promotions is a great bet but your goal is to increase your income ,take over time but make time for your family either prioritize family and get used to that don’t run away hiding behind your work find balance.

Be efficient on your family thus you will see that’s your job matter but once you retire what’s you will retire for, families become dysfunctional because we don’t know what’s happening in our homes and parents are respected because their the bread winners but children don’t know the values in this home or principles and being efficient in that’s area will reduce corporal punishment and have kids open to you.

I will pounder on this point because it’s important, your health getting things done reduce stress level two rather write your tasks on paper and snooze them if they keep showing up while they’re still not urgent than having pile of tasks in your head.

Me my head have all the room in the world important are written on my phone and I get reminded all the time ,my goals are on my paper I check them when I get bored and sometimes see that’s I need new goals cause I have already crushed those without realizing it.

Parento principle 80/20 rule

You are not what’s people expect of you ,you are like water you can change form to the present positive or negative situation you find yourself in. This lesson is found on 48 Laws of power by Robert Green, be flexible but the above principle applies to every aspect of life.

Our lives 80% of them are spent at work and 20% on our lives. The question is do you like the ratio or you wish to change it, some of us find meaning to our jobs and we are completely ok others well you know. 80% of your income goes to 20% of the things meaning you have one thing that’s waste most of your money and it’s not spread equally and my advice on that’s is to be efficient on your money have those 20% be assets which are things that’s pay you money back. 80% of your time is spent on social media and where your attention goes that’s where your life and money go.

Your car is too old needs constant repair after bills be aware of it ,car is important when it’s comes to people who moves around a lot and their business depends on it other than that’s it can be a real money waster unless you value every minutes of your life but still drive according to the speed limit.

Decisions and lack of concentration

Life is hard, and it’s has a lot of challenges would you rather spend time moving from one thing to another never mastering anything or focus and make what’s you chose your life. I have been approaching life and realized that’s you don’t need to be master of anything in life to be successful except master of people.

Mastering a certain one skill get your mind fixed on that’s one thing while if you delegate and pay talented people you can have a better life the problem with this you need to know what’s you are doing because this people will also rely on you, be credible and influential although this type of person needs to be like a jerk sometimes to get things done so be it ,you cannot be always soft if dealing with people. You only need to balance this behavior and family is not good in this environment unless they can easily adapt and really don’t take offense.

The time it’s take you to make decision on something is the different between winning and failing, there are times to think and if until the due date comes and you haven’t make up your mind you need to exercise your decision muscle and take risks and face the music, pivot and all cause not making a decision is a terrible decision. Bonus

The game is social

I have a tendency of not liking losing but I still have a bad habit of not weighing the situation before getting in. While you are trying to get things done on time you might rub other people the wrong way in that’s case don’t leave scares on your way to success and other’s will try to stop you on your way because it’s how things are done around here and you can potentially lose your place in that’s place.

Play it cool while you try to not lose efficiency on your own work, on the group work finish your potion on time or even single handedly get things done if the pack isn’t putting the work. This apply to even school work ,I experienced this when I was studying with my own money its became clear that’s if I don’t drive this people we are going to lose marks and when I was wrong at some point I had to pay people who came their bus fee if I didn’t make it.

On the other hand I was just one person stopping the whole project and i’m not bragging here but if I was there and the other person was absent the project would’ve continue and the absent guy suffer the consequences. In short make up for your missteps. We  have came to this part of the blog ,where I have to love you and leave you I wish to get someone who can narrate this for me on YouTube and get this type of information out there. LnM (ULwaz NO Makhula) that’s us on social media. Thank you for spending the time FOLLOW US for such grooming content.

What’s does money represent?

Money can be a test of character for me and I understand it clear to that’s angle and I have tried to never cut corner when it comes to money. The question I want you to ask yourself when it comes to money handling and engaging and trading, what it represents to you?

Worth your time

How do you test people’s integrity?

Tempting people might not be an ethical thing to do but if you going to deal with money and have those people by your side you might consider testing them. E.g. here at home they know how much I value money so my mom knows she has to pay me back my money when she takes it and I do the same.

Now she’s family I’m not suppose to mind but this makes us put money in its place and don’t let it put tension in our biological relationship. Now let’s say you deal with people out of you immediate family, I suggest you test their physiological thinking with money and their beliefs a bit and at least try to lead them to your way of thinking if it’s working.

Put people in a position where they can steal your money or they can use it and report the usage to you like you won’t see. Do these now and again if this person will be engage in your funds and business for the long term?

Money is not always equal in value to what’s it can buy.

The experiences, the quality relationships, the moments (graduations, funerals, funny moments in the house, having your family around) money can add pleasure to this experiences but it’s not key .

On other hand money is so powerful it can initiate a spark with your love of your life who can initially love you for your money and later realize your other important traits and then money start to matter less in a long run.

Or your money being represented by the equity you own in real estate or different type of investments and businesses, here we not talking about paper or digits on the screen but the actual things you own that’s makes you valuable in your community and market place,

while looking after your livelihood in this case Money is Bigger than its sum buying a land is more valuable than having lot of money in the bank if you can make the money out of this land. Buying a online land is also important in this century although that’s is a financial move its still represent some kind of ownership.

It’s a management theory

Between you and your employer money is a tool to facilitate one’s need so it’s a form of trade. Working is also management theory ,that’s how the society is managed by private companies and government  and keep the world turning but that’s doesn’t mean we cannot survive without living it’s cheap to survive ,what’s expensive is the luxuries that’s we are working for everyday and they are not a bad thing in fact they make our lives easy.

But don’t think you cannot live without them or you need them ,the actual thing you need is shelter ,food and few clothing the rest is a bonus even side effects that’s comes from abundance is a sign that’s we sometimes use money for bad indulgence which is not good for us.

Abundance is good but it’s needs responsibility from those who wants its and those who posses it. Since money is sometimes lose its value it’s important to understand that’s the better investments are things that’s grows in value not saving money in the bank it’s self.

Money is security and builds confidence

I’m yet to see someone who has money but scared of everything ,from personal experience if I have a job , money and things are going well in my life I tend to be really confident and my awareness grows because I need to protect this cash from strangers that’s want it with less effort.

Not everything can be solved with throwing money at it, but some and most do meaning you might be secure to what’s ever life throws at you. Health challenges money is there, new born on the way money is there, someone just died money is there or maybe you want to get married money is there.

Other’s don’t have it and when life needs it tool of survival which is money they get poor service or left to die because they cannot afford to take care of themselves. Alux.com always say is expensive to be alive, I agree so get your money right my friend.

Earning of money comes from an idea that’s is executed

Idea alone doesn’t give us money ,I always write my ideas and when it’s come time to take action I invest on something totally different or what’s I already know that’s its work.

Other’s think people with money are lucky meaning having money for these people is a matter of luck and their not are lucky enough. But also other people have a bad idea about money and money is not all those beliefs e, money is not roots of all evil if you believe that’s please change and find a better understanding ,don’t associate money with being bad and people who owns it are evil that’s too is a bad information you have to change.

You attract what’s you think about if you ideas are poor wishes and hating the good life then you won’t have good ideas that’s will lead you to having money.

Thanks for hanging with us I hope our mindset rub to you a bit and you can start having better view of money. LnM follow us as ULwaz No Makhula on all social media, comment below and let’s have some good reads below.

Money is a time saver

I won’t elaborate much on this one is quite self explainatory ,but just to do justice people with money can bypass a lot of stumbling blocks of being poor , the connections and the doors are always open and money can afford to push them wide open without distroying relationships.

Money is a lot of things and that’s being a good hearted personif you have it giving can be a good habit to instill in your life. Giving make you feel good and like every tasks that require money when i give i feel like removing load of my back in a positive way cause its something we take for granted sometimes.

I have learnt to give cashiers when i buy something in retails and make sure it can at least cover the bus fee or more and i hope i will improve in this one.

5 mistakes musicians make

Welcome to LnM, today we going to touch on things you should avoid when starting out in your music life , we were guilty of this as well and somewhat not perfect but we want to help our followers and people who constantly come back to stop doing this or at least improve. If you new here you might want to subscribe and look for a notification bell so you won’t miss a good how to info.

  1. Saving hits for one day you make it

We know people like Zakwe , Tns , Duncan and other artists are famous for releasing a song they did on 2015 ,We don’t recommend that strategy because you cannot control it , 1stly you don’t know how people are going to feel about the songs  you might be delay your success .2ndly nobody care until you make it, even the deal you seeking with that song wont reflect because executives and A&Rs don’t have numbers that shows how the song is doing because you haven’t released it and lastly you might be a one hit wonder if you do this analyze yourself.

2. Do diss tracks without a goal

Music is business if you going to make fool of yourselves in public you might as well get paid in the process. The music Vandals that are crazy about qgom music and those real hip hop cats get your priority straight if it’s doesn’t pay the bills its shouldn’t be so important .others will say they’re background is good ,then we will say  consider your children background as well have some balance and avoid having your name dragged in the mud just for the fun of it ,this songs will always be around and once you record something you wouldn’t play for your future family then you need to delete it and get back on track.

3. Don’t back up files of the songs

Have your music in multiple storage devices and even online on the cloud that way you can be able to release music even when you have writers block and do remixes or even resell your work as you grow, Producer back up your kits and sounds, and artists should have their own external hard drive and always sign split sheet every time the new song is recorded just in case one party decides to release the song later as his own

4. Don’t like to pay for quality

When young artists and old artists overlook the quality we just know they still playing, in Durban we don’t have an engineer that we can count on when it comes to proper mastering, Duane sin is not bad but he can be better as well. That’s why ULwaz No Makhula uses Rogan Kelsey from Johannesburg he has proved himself countless times. Why artists don’t want to pay for this services , our assumption is they thing there is no huge difference but wonder why their music doesn’t get the love that we get .People listen and they can tell from good quality to average quality or no quality at all and I don’t even want to talk about radio stations. As an artist you are also half entrepreneur and you need to figure what’s is that as well or otherwise people who can’t rap or sing will do the work for you and pay you peanuts .You Have to invest in your music, in 2020 mastering is only 650 Rands .mixing can be done by a lot of producers locally so you don’t have to sweat.

5. They think dopeness is all that matters

I have artists who get surprised when I charge them for my beats, I respect them and they are dope but making beats takes time and they don’t push that much to create awareness that can lead to potential customers so being dope or talented is never enough. You need to raise your standards as an artist and improve your work ethic and pay people who helps you or you really don’t respect them .if you don’t push hard you cannot get a free beat and a free recording from me ,that waste of time you have to pay. If your dope songs are not well marketed or pushed and makes money they are useless that why is so important to replicate big artists and that why you need a job. This is it for today please add other mistakes artists makes on the comments we know we left a lot ,like signing bad deals but we haven’t  experienced that one and we don’t have a close friend we can refer to that why we didn’t say it but we know it’s there and artists must get council before signing anything. This is LnM Show, we going to give you a bonus

6. They blow through gigs money

Few performances the artists get doesn’t improve their craft in fact it’s hurt it, because they take the money and don’t reinvest but buy alcohol for themselves and girls as well as fake friends. Starting out you not a baler especially when you still make less than 10k per gig you still not that valuable so your behavior as an artist should change  ,you can get paid direct to an account and do yourself a favor leaving a card at home and try to have a love partner who supports you but not drain your funds ,this apply to female artists don’t have girl together right after your performance  ,and as much as you can support at home if you don’t have other source of income for your music at home they should not see the money you just make .reinvest on your brand. It’s enjoyable to do music related things not all of them but most they show you the possibilities, Things like music videos and photo shoots and so on if you do it by yourself now .if you get lucky and get a deal you will be able to control your album or single budget because you will be familiar with this stuff .We hope we didn’t offend anyone by our facts our goal is for you to learn and change your ways for the better LnM we out
