The Exalt - My Experience

With weeks out on tours and weekends away from home or even worse, away from the local church, one realizes that there’s always a family around – The Exalt

This small group of dedicated gospel singers which I’m proud to be part of has helped me unleash the potential in me. Week days rehearsals, Friday night mellow jam sessions, Saturday performances, Sunday church service worship, you add to the list, all those activities have deposited a lot in me than I thought.

There’s something relaxing about hanging with the right company. You realize that you invest your time and your talent but one thing is for sure, the returns on that investment are immeasurable. From spiritual growth to individual development, just to name a few. This do not come easily, it takes commitment and sacrifice from one.

Worse still, it even extends to spending sleepless nights on very cold weather. Travelling to the worst of the places deep in the maloti of Lesotho even across the borders and back, this has been quite an experience. Sometimes, you even have to quit on the projects you think have a much higher priority than The Exalt, but the temptation of the fellowship you have with the team is indestructible.

‘How wonderful, how beautiful, when brothers and sisters get along!’ To join the Psalmist, it is really wonderful to spend time with the team. Now I can say, “I’m proud to be part of The Exalt.”

Just Start!

Have you ever found it a hassle to begin a project, report, blog post, or even anything? You have the idea but the struggle is putting the first few lines down. It almost always happens to all of us. The worst part or maybe the best part is you will have to get started anyway.

Here I provide you with some ways I use to maneuver under such circumstances.

1. Don’t think about it

For many of us, we always think of a perfect start, which is almost impossible to achieve. If you have a subject to work on, or a task to work out, don’t put too much thought on how it will look like at the beginning. What you have is enough to get you started. Thinking too much about it might even bring up opposing ideas which will ultimately hinder you from beginning the task.

 2.  Talk it over

Sharing the idea with friends is also beneficial. Listen carefully to the ideas and the views they have towards what you’re working on. This doesn’t mean you ask them to help you get started, but you only ask for their view and maybe their input. Besides, you can meet experts on the field you’re working on and find their views.

 3.  Find other means

Sometimes going through the material related to the subject you’re working on can help. In the fields like programming, developing an algorithm and working on the code afterwards is one way of getting started. There are numerous ways with which you can find help, but as soon as you do, get started and work to the finish.

Like Nike goes, “Just do it!”

LUCT - Breaking News

Following what I call a “special issue,” of my local newspaper, Lesotho Times, I saw a need to bring a new thought to the subject the paper had written in more than five articles.

Robert Kiyosaki, in his book, “Rich Kid, Smart Kid,” highlights some of the fundamentals of the new order of the day. He confirms that, in the Industrial Age, the rules were go to school, get good grades, find a safe, secure job with benefits, and stay there all your life. After twenty years or so you retire, and the company and the government take care of you for the rest of your life.

We are in the Information Age and the rules have changed. The rules now are go to school, get good grades, find a job, and then retrain yourself for that job. Find a new company and a new job and retrain. Find a new company and a new job and retrain, and hope and pray you have enough money set aside to last you much longer than age sixty-five because you will live well beyond the age of sixty-five.

The mentality of the paper exposes the kind of thinking we have in our society, the Industrial Age thinking. LUCT is geared to a much better process, transforming the thinking of the individuals and equipping them to use their creative skills to make a living.

Kiyosaki adds that, in the Information Age, the people who make the big bucks are the athletes, actors, and musicians, the guys with creative and innovative skills. Many of the doctors and other professional people are actually making less than they did in the Industrial Age.

Besides, instead of hoping to find a good job with a big company, more and more students are starting their own businesses in their dorm rooms. LUCT even has a special office –The Limkokwing Entrepreneurship Acceleration Platform- that assists students in developing their incubator businesses—touted as a way to help them build their businesses.

The question is, what does the plight of the institution have to do with the paper?

Here are the links to some articles that show how best LUCT students Lesotho can go:

Linux Start-Up Animation - My thought

On my multi-media final project, I was asked to design a start-up animation for any application or operating system of my choice. Here's a look of what I thought of. Believe me, I used only Photoshop to complete the project. This is just an image, will cash in the animation some time.

What do you think?
