New year's resolution ? NO for me. i will do these instead



This year I made a lot of resolutions, and one of them is to go to the Gym more, I failed in most of these resolutions epically.

According to forbes.com ''Just 8% of People Achieve Their New Year's Resolutions '' Fuck me ! just 8% ? 


The thing is   ''Enthusiasm is common. Commitment is rare.''


Every year my resolutions begin to drop off after a week, I hope I am not the only one? But the truth is only 40% of those who made resolutions actually stick to their goals. 

Some resolutions are hard to keep, for example, Roy Baumeister, a social psychologist said 'A resolution to lose some weight is not that easy to follow,"

So this means the reason for our failures is that many of us lack the structure to support the behavioral change our new goals require.

To be sincere, I know what to do to commit to my resolutions, but the determination to committing to it is the issue.

SO in 2017 I have decided to work and focus on mini goals, instead of creating unrealistic and stressful goals I cant achieve.


I have made a list of how I plan to run my 2017,  will focus on these daily, weekly and monthly so I can consistently get things done.

1.  Instead of writing many goals the which I can't achieve, I will focus on the process that will actually get me close to my goals and commit to those actions.

2. I will say NO to anything that will distract me from focusing..zero interruption is required, a clear focus. I expect this to lead me to massive success. In 2017 I won't care if I'm not liked my plan is to be respected.

3. I am going to ditch multitasking, it has been verified by the scientist; it doesn't work.Trying to do many things at the same time only creates more bottleneck it doesnt help.Rather I will focus on a task,then another after the first has been completed.

4. Steve Jobs said what made Apple was not only what they decide to build but also all those projects they choose to ignore. So next year I am going to write a Stop doing List this will contain the list of things I plan to stop doing.

5. There are some apps I should be using to keep track of tasks, I will use them more next year. Apps like todoist,wunderlist.

6. I am good at procrastinating, and I figured out that the only way to solve this, is to always try to deal with something once, instead of saying tomorrow I will do it now and get it off my mind so I can fully focus on the next matter.

7. I will set a time frame and deadline for my larger projects, I need to be more realistic about the length of time they will take and plan ahead.

8. There is some task I will be doing away from the office next year, and also I have I realized it is critical to take breaks and let my brain rest, take a walk or socialize a bit to refresh for new tasks.

9. I will always take the time to celebrate my progress and keep refining toward a happy, productive year 

10. Do you know of the 80/20 rule? well, only 20% of what you do every day produces 80% of the result you get. so I will focus more on the most significant 20% of the task I have at hand.

how punters choose where to bet and how betting companies can tap in to them


The year 2016 is coming to an end in some few weeks. In the Nigeria gaming industry, we have seen a lot of ups and down...the good the bad and the ugly Few companies continue to soar up both in sales and profits. We have seen new businesses launched and closed.
When I see betting company start operation and closed in Nigeria I begin to wonder what they are getting wrong in this 1 billion Naira a day gaming industry. Definitely, it's not sales or profit. 
As a gaming professional, I have seen many companies make poor decisions when it comes to products, staffing, and business strategies.
Well, it's not looking like it's going to change soon, but as a stakeholder in this industry, I wish we had a very competitive industry where betting companies compete with each other for customer retention. Instead of a 1 or 2 horse race we have now.
There are 4 key motivational principles for betting and how to tap into them, understanding these principles will continue to shape the industry, years to come as we see customers getting more enlightened about what they deserve and what they are receiving in regards to service delivery. 
  1. They’re familiar with the agent or the company: a company like bet9ja spends millions of Naira to acquire shops and equipment for their agents, to increase their reach and profitability. Customers trust them because they see them all around, there is the sense that for them to be all around, they must be very wealthy as a company. And that's the reason they became arguably the number 1 company in Nigeria. 
Key takeaway: Companies looking to compete must first make sure they have excellent products and devise a strategy to spread and this can only be achieved by having good products in more agent shops all around the country.
2. They share values with what or whom they are listening to:  it's the same as other business, let's take me as an example. I don't bet, but I like sports and reads sports newspaper every day, I will be more convinced to take a bet one day with a company that keeps promoting sports news in the paper I buy every day.
Key takeaway: betting companies should break their story down into different elements that people might actually want to listen to.This will help to draw in a diversified audience, it will not only keep your existing customers but attract new clients who like the content you are sharing.
3. Someone told them to I have been convinced to buy many things in life by my friends so many times, now I have to wonder how many people have played games with bet9ja,supabets or nairabet just because people recommended them as the best companies around. We call this social proof. The theory that people will adopt the beliefs or actions of a group of individuals they like or trust. 
Word of mouth has six essentials qualities as explained by author Jonah Berger in his book 'contagious'. Social currency, Triggers, Emotion, public, practical value. These are the qualities that get people to keep listening or betting with your company.
key takeaway: keep your current customers glued to your firm by continuously updating your products, give them right incentives, be true to them, illustrate your business strategies through emotion, teach them what they need to know like responsible gambling, something they would love to pass to friends or co-worker. position your ads in a way that it's impossible not to tell someone.
4. They think the value they get from you is the best in the market while you can't provide or please everyone, you can do your best to provide the best service and incentive. Remember to make it true to yourself and your brand. Be it a bonus, odds or game selections. A Lot of companies take advantage of the poorly regulated gaming industry in Nigeria to under pay punters and their agents. You could set your business apart by operating according to the international gaming standard.
Key Takeaway: Find out what matters to your company and use what i have covered here today to know what is important to punters out here. You will be surprised how great your business will do in 2017.
