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 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 youโ€™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.

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:
Hereโ€™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 โ€“ 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 youโ€™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 youโ€™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 youโ€™re Wasting Money:
If you want to win with money, youโ€™ve got to change your actions with money.
The way you do that is by tracking your expenses.
If you arenโ€™t watching where your money is going, youโ€™ll always wonder where it went.
9. Identify What Makes you Happy and What Doesnโ€™t:
Make a list!
Put down the things you do that bring you happiness. Then do the same for what doesnโ€™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 โ€” track the progress

Join us at as we get insights from the powerhouse female lawyers who are leading the charge in organizational governance.

Gain insights from industry leaders and discover how their expertise is driving positive change in the boardroom.


If you want to fall back in love with yourselfโ€”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.
๐Ÿ’ช 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.

5 lessons from book โ€œMaster your time, master your lifeโ€

1. Identify your priorities: Before you can effectively manage your time, you need to know what's most important to you. Take the time to figure out what your goals and values are, and use them to guide your time-management decisions.

2. Use a system: Develop a system for managing your time, whether it's a planner, calendar, or digital tool. This will help you stay organized and on track, and ensure that you're making progress towards your goals.

3. Avoid procrastination: Procrastination is a major time-waster, so it's important to learn how to avoid it. One way to do this is to break tasks down into smaller, more manageable chunks, and focus on completing each one in turn.

4. Practice saying no: If you want to master your time, you need to be willing to say no to things that aren't important to you. This can be difficult, but it's important to set boundaries and prioritize your own needs and goals.

5. Take care of yourself: Finally, it's important to take care of yourself if you want to manage your time effectively. This means getting enough sleep, eating well, and making time for activities that recharge and energize you. When you feel good, you'll be more productive and able to accomplish more in less time.

โ€œEveryone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.โ€ - Leo Tolstoy


5 Lessons I Learned From The Book โ€˜As a Man Thinkethโ€™

1) You Become What You Think

You are what you are right now because of the thoughts you once had or have. If you want to change yourself, you should first start with changing your thoughts. All the actions of man arise from the hidden seeds of thoughts.

Just with the right choice and application of thought, man can ascend to divine perfection; while with wrong choice and application of thought, he can rise below the level of the beast.

Good thoughts and results can never produce bad results; bad thoughts and actions can never produce good results.

2)Your Mind is Like a Garden

The author creates an analogy of our mind with the garden. We either choose to cultivate our mind wisely or let it run wild. If we donโ€™t plant the seeds of beautiful flowers in our garden, the garden will itself produce some useless weeds.

Just as the gardener weeds out all unnecessary plants it is the responsibility of every individual to plant the right seeds, nurture them, and at the same time put out all the weeds. When we do this, our life becomes beautiful. But if we do the exact opposite and feed the weeds, our life becomes a mess.

3) Thoughts Not Just Affect Mentally, But Also Physically
How and what we think has a significant impact not just on the mental level but also physical level. The body is the servant of mind and it obeys the order of mind be it deliberately chosen or automatically expressed.

The author argues that the people who live in constant fear of disease are the ones who actually get it. Therefore being healthy is not just about the body, itโ€™s also more about the mind.

Change of diet will not help a man who will not change his thoughts.

Thoughts also affect how we age. If we just pause for a second and observe the people around us, we can see people in their nineties with bright smiling faces. But we also can see the people who are just in their mid-thirties whose face is drawn into unharmonious contours. Mr Pawan

4)You Are Not Shaped by Your Circumstances

If you believe you canโ€™t get something just because you came from a different background or because your environment doesnโ€™t support you, you are wrong my friend. You are not shaped by the circumstances rather the outer world of circumstances shapes itself into the inner world of your thoughts.

No matter what the circumstances are, you always have the freedom to choose how to respond. And the best response is always to choose to focus on the areas you have control of. When you focus on what you have control over and improve that way, you win in life.

Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves; they, therefore, remain bound.

5)Actions And Thoughts Must Go Together

The knowledge preached by some of the self-help gurus about thoughts is that you will achieve whatever you think if you just believe it. This is also represented as a law of attraction and the idea is sold to many people.

James Allen, who is also considered as the pioneer of the self-help movement was clear that just having thoughts are not enough. Thoughts are just the starting point. And if we donโ€™t harmonize our thoughts with the right actions, we will never accomplish what we are set to.

Just wishing for things and waiting for them to come to you will not help you in any way. You must go out, take action and earn it, whatever it is you want.

9 Lessons From the Book โ€œWrite It Down, Make It Happenโ€

1๏ธโƒฃ If youโ€™re specific when you write down your goals, Youโ€™ll activate a part of your brain that helps you focus on them.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป Visualization is a way to guide your brain to your dreamed-of destination.

2๏ธโƒฃ Your brain isnโ€™t really good at distinguishing imagination from reality.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป Thatโ€™s why you always wake up before you fall down in your dreams.

๐Ÿค“ If you trick him into thinking that a dream of yours is reality, it will work towards achieving it.

3๏ธโƒฃ Which is the best way to trick him?

โœ By writing down specific goals for your brain and letting it process them slowly and carefully. Not to mention: repeatedly.

4๏ธโƒฃ Use Your Reticular Activating System to Your Benefit

๐Ÿง  Your brain has a feature which scientists call โ€œreticular activating systemโ€ or RAS, for short.

๐ŸŸข Itโ€™s a sort of a brain filter which helps your mind focus on important things and ignore irrelevant data.

5๏ธโƒฃ If you write down your goals and intents โ€“ both in the short and long runs โ€“ you can train your brain to filter things which may not lead to the fulfillment of these hopes and dreams.

โœ… So, your unconsciousness will work for you even when youโ€™re not aware.

6๏ธโƒฃ To motivate yourself for your biggest goals, achieve small ones first and add charitable outcomes.

7โƒฃ Writing down your dreams and aspirations is like hanging up a sign that says, โ€˜Open for Business.

8โƒฃ Writing down your fears takes away their hold on you;writing out the reverse of your fearsโ€ฆ empowers and energizes you to start thinking differently.

9โƒฃ You need not write volumes to express a goal;a short and simple list of items, as specific as possible, will clarify your intentions as surely as an.



9 lessons from the book "Everything Started As Nothing"

1. Entrepreneurship is a state of mind. It isn't merely about implementation of an idea. It is risk taking and trying to create something out of nothing.

2. One must start small and focus on ex*****on, work towards measurable offers and take a leadership into that realm.

3. Only raise money from those who can afford to lose that capital. This is the most vital rule.

4. Early investors don't bet on ideas but on you, the founder.

5. Entrepreneurs don't fail, businesses do.

6. If you cannot beat them, join them.

7. In a start-up, the accounting function must be integral to the business and should be driven by the founder.

8. This thought forms the Core

"Everything Started as Nothing" You have to build everything from Scratch for your business.

You will be the company's first Salesman, admistrator and HR.

9. Jeff Bezos & Mark Zuckerberg are exception not rule โ€” not all startup founders should be CEOs
