IT’S A WOMAN’S WORLD

Time has been a witness as to how we evolved as a society. From the rubbles we rose into great heights that we eventually became members of an established and respected community which will eventually get better any time soon. And at the helm of it all, we see women in power who have greatly contributed their respective efforts and knowledge. At the helm of it all, we see women who stand tall.

It is without a shadow of a doubt that women have played key roles in our current standing as a society. Women all over the country have greatly contributed their wits and words that eventually laid down masterstrokes of ingenuity and creativity. But more often than not, women do not get the credit they deserve. More often than not, women are cast aside if and when it’s time to recognize the people behind our success.

Today, let us recognize the importance of women. They say the future is female. We say the past and the present have always been led by important women. Every day is an opportunity to recognize their contributions. Every day is a chance to be grateful for their brilliance. Every day is a reminder that where we are today—we reached because of several women standing at the helm.

As we celebrate International Women’s Day, may we all be reminded that we must always fight for equal rights and equal platforms. May we always remember that women have played important parts in attaining the socio-economic status we are currently enjoying. May we always remember that the strength of a woman must not be toyed with—for it can build an entire generation of dreamers and doers.

May we all be reminded that it is a woman’s world, and we must continue to support their fight for a better tomorrow.

When searching around for land, be on the lookout and ask these key questions:

1. Is the ground solid enough to accommodate your building plans (or the plans of future builders)?

2. Is water accessible via a well or NWSC?

3. How is the condition of surrounding properties? Does the seller have any agreements with them?

4. Is there road access? Will you be able to get any large equipment you need onto the land?

5. Are there any zoning issues that could affect your future plans?

On top of these things, be sure to visit the property and talk to the bataka of the area......in addition to doing a search at the lands office or Buganda Land Board if the land is Kabaka's land.

No matter how good the deal may seem, you should always do your research to ensure you know exactly what you’re paying for.

Seven Lessons from Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson:

1. Change is inevitable. Things change in life, and we need to be prepared for that.

2. We can't control change, but we can control how we react to it. We can choose to resist change or we can choose to adapt to it.

3. If we don't change, we'll be left behind. The world is constantly changing, and if we don't keep up, we'll be left behind.

4. We need to be willing to let go of the old in order to embrace the new. The old cheese represents our comfort zone, and it can be difficult to let go of it. But if we don't, we'll never be able to find new cheese.

5. We need to be proactive in our search for new cheese. We can't just sit back and wait for change to happen to us. We need to be proactive in our search for new opportunities.

6. We need to be prepared to take risks. Change often involves taking risks, but it's important to remember that the only way to grow is to step outside of our comfort zone.

7. Enjoy the journey. Change can be challenging, but it's also an opportunity to grow and learn. So embrace the journey and enjoy the ride.

These are just a few of the lessons that can be learned from Who Moved My Cheese?. If you're looking for a way to deal with change in your life, I highly recommend reading the book. It's full of valuable insights and advice that can help you move forward with your life.

𝐓𝐨𝐩 𝟏𝟎 𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐨𝐧 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐧𝐞𝐝 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤 -"𝟑𝟎 𝐃𝐀𝐘𝐒".

1. Stop expecting others to solve your life for you:
Change only happens when YOU CHANGE!
If you are going to be successful, the important thing is not to expect anything from anyone you are not willing to do for yourself.
2. Quit Sugar, Vegetable Oil & Bread:
Here’s the secret to being just a bit healthier than you are right now:
Instead of soda, drink water.
Instead of fries, get a salad.
Instead of bread or pasta – go for more water and vitamins.
Take care of your body.
3. Start Reading a Good Book:
"The more you read, the more you learn and earn!"
Successful people know the value of reading books.
If you’re looking for something with the largest long-term up-swing, READ!!!
4. Limit your Social Media and Entertainment Intake:
Most people use social media as a way to feed their dopamine addiction.
Cut social media to 30 minutes daily, and see how your life changes when you’re left with yourself.
5. Plan Tomorrow, Today:
"The moment you start planning your day, you take control of time!"
Every night write down your plans for the next day.
Create a schedule for yourself and try to be specific.
6. Wake Up at the Same Hour Every Day:
You may yield some unexpected benefits by getting up at the same time every day.
Benefits like:
- Brighter mood
- Improved sleep
- Decreased sleep deprivation
- Better immune system function
- Sharper focus and short-term memory
7. Meditate for 20 Minutes:
Meditation is like cleaning up your room, but inside of your head.
Regular meditation helps you to have full control over yourself.
It helps reduce stress levels and eliminate all sorts of worries.
8. Figure out Where you’re Wasting Money:
If you want to win with money, you’ve got to change your actions with money.
The way you do that is by tracking your expenses.
If you aren’t watching where your money is going, you’ll always wonder where it went.
9. Identify What Makes you Happy and What Doesn’t:
Make a list!
Put down the things you do that bring you happiness. Then do the same for what doesn’t.
The secret to winning at life is doing more of the things in the first column and less in the second.
10. Track your Goals:
No matter what your goal is and how long it may take to achieve it
There is one specific action that will make sure you are moving in the right direction — track the progress

If you want to fall back in love with yourself—FOCUS.
Focus on the things that compel you, the things that stir something deep inside of yourself.
Focus on the people who inspire you, the ones who support you and encourage you to grow into the person you have always wanted to be.
Focus on the things that hurt, the things that create noise in your life, and commit to distancing yourself from them. You have to be comfortable with walking away from the human beings and the thoughts that no longer serve you. You have to be comfortable with walking away from the chaos of it all.

1) Another reason for failing to finish is that you are so unprepared for interruptions that when one or more occur, you get thrown by it.
2) By far the #1 reason for leaving a task or project unfinished is having too much to do.
3) If you have a fear of failure, you will delay finishing a project, so you do not have to deal with the potential negative feedback that you fear. If you fear success, procrastination delays that scenario from happening.
4) If you end whatever you are trying to finish at a good point, it will be that much easier to pick right up again when you can get back to it.
5) Make whatever you are procrastinating about the very first activity that you tackle first thing in the morning, or when you first get to the office.
6)F = Focus on one priority task.
I= Ignore interruptions or distractions.
N = Now is the time, not later or tomorrow.
I= Initiate and innovate so you keep going.
S = Stay the course however tough it gets.
H = Hail finishing by celebrating your accomplishment.
7) Be open to trying new things and even fresh ideas or even new technology that might make it faster, easier, or better to finish what you started.
💪 Those who have too many
unfinished projects or activities often are trying to do everything themselves.
9) Here is what his SMART acronym stands for:
S = Specific
M = Measurable
A = Assignable
R = Realistic
T= Time-related
10) "Should I have started this in the first place?"
If your answer is, "No, then it is okay to leave it unfinished, whatever it is.
