  1. Activate your work mood on Sunday

The reason why Mondays have remained unappealing to most people is that they forget over the weekend that Monday ever exists. Hence, they walk into every Monday and into their workplaces carrying over their shoulders the slugs of tasks that they had left undone on Friday. Why not lighten your Mondays and work better by activating your work mood on Sunday?

WORK
ACTIVATE YOUR WORK MOOD ON SUNDAY

This does not mean you can’t have all the fun you want over the weekend or that you have to turn your centre table into a desk to address your slush pile of work related activities. It only means that you should get certain tasks done on Sunday so as to keep your mind actively keen on tackling greater tasks on Monday.

So while you are at the club with your peeps or at home with your family, watching TV and treating yourself to a great meal, you can as well reply those pending emails sent to you. Call the people who have been at your throat for a while. You can set up an appointment with an equally Sunday-friendly person, order for the materials you need to be delivered on Monday and so on. Not only does this make you work-enthusiastic for the next day, it also reduces the load of things you need to keep track of for the new week. And this is being work-smart.

2. Be the first to waste time

Okay. You are thinking this is a covert way to talk about punctuality, and how it is the soul of business. Or how you must get up early to be work-productive. Well, you are on the right track. Quite alright, it’s good enough to wake up early, beat the alarm clock to its game and delve right into work.

But it’s actually better to wake up early enough to waste time and do nothing! Working productively is all about having the right mindset and the best way to grow a right mindset is by cajoling the mind into believing it is not working at all.

Relaxing before going to work
Be the first to waste time

And how best to do this but by waking up at that moment when you don’t have to rush to work, settling down to a cup of tea, listening to the radio, soul music. Even watching an early morning show, lazing around deciding what to eat or wear(if you have not settled this already), and then playing around in the bathroom before going leisurely to work. What this does is to leave you relaxed. As well as set the right mood for you to face the long day ahead.

3. First thing in the morning: Be a jerk

To get work done on time, you can’t avoid being a jerk in the morning. This does not mean you can’t extend the right courtesy or get all cosy with your co-workers. It only means that you should avoid any morning chit-chats, sweet talks or lax discussions.

GET DOWN TO WORK
GET DOWN TO WORK

Instead, you should get down to those urgent, brain racking tasks that you need to do.

Those who get to work on a Monday morning or any other day for that matter only to begin filling in their friends and co-workers on the happenings of the weekend or the previous day never get anything done.

WORK AND COWORKERS
SOME WORKERS FEEL IT’S THEIR JOB TO FILL YOU IN ON LATEST EVENTS.
AVOID THEM IN THE MORNING.

And if they do get anything done, it is merely tacky and inefficient. So do not mind if your co-workers think you are a jerk for the best part of the morning because they won’t be able to resist calling you a sweetheart with the sort of bustling attention and cool gist you will shower them with after you are done with your most urgent tasks.

4. Nothing is as important as everything

A work-smart person will always see every task as more important than another, which in itself is more important. Nothing should be just too important to focus on while leaving the other duties unattended to. And nothing should be too trivial not to pay attention to. This way, everything that needs to be done, from the small task of checking the mails and messages to the big task of meeting a customer’s need, gets attention.

WORK AND PRIORITY
PAY MUCH ATTENTION TO SMALL DETAILS AS YOU DO TO BIG TASKS

But this does not exclude the need to prioritise tasks. It only means that nothing should be so small or big to leave out of your to-do-list. And you are allowed to not carry out those big routines for a while so as to attend to tiny details, just as you can skip those small issues to attend to bigger matters. It all depends on how motivated you are to perform a task.

5. Appeal to your inner muse

Talking about motivation, your body can sometimes be so hell bent on doing nothing so that no matter how you prop yourself up to work, nothing productive emerges. You are at that time as dry as a stone. Instead of feeling sorry for yourself or chastising yourself for being lazy, why don’t you appeal to your inner muse? What this simply means is doing anything that makes you tick and lightens your mood at that point.

WORK
APPEAL TO YOUR INNER MUSE

It can simply be plugging your earphones into your ears and listening to some of your favourite vibes. It can be eating your fantasy food or calling home to listen to the voice of your hobby and children. Even if you feel like dancing, you can simply nod your head at your table or take a stroll around while tapping your feet on the floor. Whatever your muse wants, just give it a go. But remember that there’s still work to be done.

THE VOICE SEASON TWO APPROACHES A CLIMAX

This is what THE VOICE NIGERIA, the musical TV show sponsored by Airtel, in partnership with Coca-cola and YouTube, brings to the fore. Beautiful voices, beautiful faces, beautiful memories. It shouldn’t be on a Sunday that your decoder decides to run out of its subscription. Constantly renew your TV subscription by logging on to www.vtpass.com. And you can also subscribe to an affordable data bundle on all MTN, 9MOBILE, AIRTEL, and GLO networks through www.vtpass.com. This way, you can always stream several episodes of The Voice Nigeria live on YouTube.

THE VOICE: MEMORY LANE

The VOICE NIGERIA is an adaptation of The Voice of America. This is a popular American TV show which in itself was based on the original The Voice of Holland. Prior to its commencement last year, many were sceptical about the possibility of adapting something of such standard as the Voice of America to the typical Nigerian system. But the organisers, Airtel, in collaboration with Coca-cola, proved themselves capable in all regards. They successfully blended the American version with the needed Nigerian flavour.

However, it was hard to miss how the Voice Nigeria tried to emulate its American counterpart. This conclusion could be made considering the use of the same pattern of activities and the fact that the shows were not done live in Nigeria. At first, this didn’t go down well with most Nigerians. But as the season drew on, it was clear that the Nigerian version was for Nigerians and by Nigerians. The burst of energy and native indentations that emitted from the judges amassed the attention of viewers.This was mostly seen anytime they tried to persuade the contestants to be in their team. Also, several Nigerian songs received popular attention.

Vtpass.com has over the year served as a leeway enabling thousands of Nigerians to watch their favourite contestants sing. The quick, convenient payment services offered, whereby you can, from anywhere, buy your internet data and renew your data subscription has proven quite timely.

THE VOICE: SEASON ONE

The first season started on the 10th of April 2016. Four coaches were appointed to select and guide twelve singers each through the drills of the season.

The coaches included the retro song slayer himself Tuface; the vocally gifted Waje; Patoranking, the king of reggae dancehall and Timi Dakolo, winner of the Nigerian Idols season one and the king of souls. Besides the backstage selection

process, there were blind auditions where the coaches get to pick their choice contestants. This was followed by the battle rounds and live shows. After an exciting three months of good music, Arese from Team Waje emerged the winner. While Chike from Team Patoranking became the second runner up.

With the promise of a more spicy season, The Voice season 2 began on the 18th of June 2017. And so far, the show has showcased several been talented singers. This leaves one attesting to the fact that Nigeria is a bed-stone of fresh, raw potentials. Also, the judges offset a beautiful Afro-centric approach right there in their red seats. While Timi Dakolo proves to be a down-to-earth Bayelsan guy who flaunts pidgin beautifully, laughs easily and throws funny antics on stage, Patoranking has formed the habit of treating his chair like a hot seat, cheering and registering his words in our minds with slangs like Winneranking.

YEMI ALADE

Not only that, there is a new addition, Yemi Alade a.k.a Mama Africa. And she is such a natural. To say the least, Yemi Alade with her karate patterned fashion statement has become a companion to Waje. They haggle over issues together. They also contest over the amazing upstarts in brawls like typical Nigerian women do and even hold hands when touched by a song.

UPCOMING: THE LIVE SHOWS

So far, the blind auditions and the battle rounds have been completed. Several contestants have successfully been selected by their respective coaches to go on to the live show which is to start this weekend. These contestants include:

DATA BUDGET:How to reduce data usage

Keeping in touch with the life around us has always been the reason the lot of us stay close to the internet services on our Android, IOS phones, and other electronic devices. Apparently, being able to stay current, interact and connect over the cloud does not come free, it is paid for. With every passing moment, service providers like MTN, Airtel, 9mobile and GLO tag a price on every megabyte offered, in so much that the free or unlimited data plan that used to be is rarely available anymore.

On the part of the users, several tons of data, that could otherwise be saved, are being consumed at a high rate. It, therefore, becomes important to know how to manage it so as not to expend whatever money you have. Follow up on the tips below and you should be able to rescue your data budget.

JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF DATA

One incontestable way to reduce data usage and save cost is knowing how much data you need in the first place. It is easier to use something lavishly when it is readily available. But if every megabyte is reasonably accounted for, there will be no cause for any such unwarranted waste. To know your approximate need, and the plan you really need to subscribe for, keep tabs on your previous data usage and make a mental table of what really are your requisite needs online. Sum up a number of the unimportant ways you have put your data to use. Then approximately calculate just what bundle you will need for your next subscription. Your internet bundle should be slightly above your data needs in case of an emergent situation.

HOW TO SAVE DATA USING VTPASS.COM

Vtpass.com, as an online payment platform, helps reduce your data usage and save cost in more ways than one. For one, you can credit your wallet with a budgeted amount according to your need and capacity, and only fund your internet subscription from the wallet. This way, you can have an online account specifying just how much you are willing to use for your data subscription on your GLO, MTN, 9MOBILE and AIRTEL,  networks.

Again, you can follow up on all your transactions through vtpass.com. This helps you keep track of your expenses. Not only that, you can even earn money on vtpass.com while buying data subscription on your device. This is possible through the Refer a Friend affiliate program.  By referring a friend to the platform, you will be paid for the transactions they carry out. The good thing is vtpass.com, as an online payment platform, can be readily accessed even on your mobile device, so you don’t need a PC or laptop to get on the site. Log on to www.vtpass.com now to make payment and optimise data usage.

WIFI PLEASE!!!

ONE WAY TO REDUCE DATA IS TO USE PUBLIC WIFI
USE WIFI IN PUBLIC LOCATIONS AS MUCH AS YOU CAN

Really, considering the high rate of technological awareness in Nigeria, more and more places are being braced with wifis. There is, therefore, no need to use cellular data to update apps or download huge files. This can be done when within range of a wifi network. Also, streaming of high-quality videos needs not be done unless when wifi service is available. Better still, in very immediate circumstances, these videos can be downloaded or you can use offline options like YouTube Red.

BACKGROUND DATA

Several apps consume data in the background, getting updated severally, uploading messages or posts etc. One such app is Instagram. Because of the constant visuals, it deals with, its data consumption is on par. It is therefore advisable to regulate the number of people you follow on Instagram. This, of course, excludes those whose main line of operation, lie within this realm. But as much as possible, use wifi wherever possible to update or upload message with rich texts or high par images. You can also restrict the background data consumed by some apps on your Android phone. First, go to Settings> Wireless & Network> Data Usage. This presents the statistics of applications consuming the bulk of your data in ascending order. Click on any of such app and you will be given the option to restrict its background data.

COMPRESS YOUR DATA

Another way to reduce data usage is to optimise the use of browsers that help compress information before sending it to your mobile Android or IOS device. Such browsers include Opera Mini and Google Chrome.

SET YOUR LIMIT

If you are such one that still whittles off your data before its stipulated time of expiry, then it is good you set a limit for yourself, so that every now and then, you know just when to stop. You can also enable an alert that tells you when you are going over the bar. To do this on your Android, you should go to Settings>Wireless & Network>Data Usage. Below the Mobile data button (which should be switched on at this point), there will be an option to Set Mobile Data Limit, tick it, and then set your limit and alert level.

There is nothing better than being able to get your data subscription or renew your data plan, just when you want to, and still be able to save as much of it as you can. With Vtpass.com, this is very possible. Visit our website www.vtpass.com, to buy and renew your data. Also, utilise our affiliate programs to earn more money even as you stay connected.
