    I've heard it said severally that, "necessity is the mother of invention", but this never really did sink in until it had to sink in. You see, the true meaning of this quote is that when the need for something becomes imperative, you are forced to find ways of getting or achieving it, no matter what. For instance, if you know your rent is due, you will do everything in your power to make sure you... [Read More]

    Everything you see in the world today is in existence because somebody somewhere gave themselves the permission to dream. In fact, they not only gave themselves permission to dream, but they also went ahead and realized their dream.  For instance, today we have crappers (toilets) because one guy called Thomas Crapper thought of making life easy for his boss. Not sure what had happened but... [Read More]

    If you know me, then you know I love a good story. I don’t mean “umbeya” kind of stories but stories that have the potential to build me and others around me. So today I want to share one such story with you. Hundreds of years ago there was a king of Scotland and his name was Robert the Bruce. It was a good thing that he was both brave and wise, because the times in which he lived were wild and... [Read More]

    Happy New Month y'all! The first part of the year is gone and we are onto the second half. If you have nothing else to be grateful for, at least you should be grateful for seeing the second half of the year! Since the year begun, there are things you probably wanted to get done but didn't because you thought the year was still young and you had many months ahead of you. Suddenly you now realize...

    Whatever you want to do, whatever you want to achieve in your life, it will never happen unless you take that FIRST STEP.

    I think Pele put it best when he said, "Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” And that my friends is the secret of success. You cannot order success like you go in a restaurant and order for food. You have to work for it. Nothing great is handed to you on a silver platter. Like someone... [Read More]

    If I’ve said this before then I’m saying it again for emphasis: succeed in silence. Why? Because: 1. Not everyone wants to see you succeed, so they’ll want to stand in your way of success. 2. Not everyone will understand your journey, so they’ll try to discourage you. 3. Not every successful person wants you to be a success, so they will try to keep you down instead of helping you up to reduce... [Read More]

    Think about when you visit a seamstress with an aim of getting yourself a new outfit done. What do you do? You either go to her with a pre-determined design in your mind, or with one already in your hand or on your phone. Why? Because there is no way she will be able to come up with an outfit for you without a design to follow. And so it is with life. The only way you will ever be able to create... [Read More]

    In exactly 4 weeks, I will be doing some CATS (continuous assessment tests). Yes in case you are wondering, I am back in school and will be for quite a while. These will be my first CATS since I went back to being a scholar and I can’t help being apprehensive about them. The best I can do is prepare myself thoroughly and hope my lecturers will be in a good mood while marking my papers. Thinking... [Read More]

    Yes it does. It requires time to practice, time to make mistakes, time to try again until you get it right. And even after you get it right, you still have to continue practicing because if you don't then you become complacent and eventually end up losing the edge you had while you were practicing. Then you have to start all over again, which requires even more time. Whatever it is you are... [Read More]

    90% of the things I have accomplished in my adult life are as a result of being linked to someone who has been instrumental in helping me achieve them. Either they directed me to the right person(s) or they advised me on the right way to approach the issue at hand. I have gotten great positive results 100% of the times I have gone to visit someone after being introduced to them by a person with a... [Read More]

    It is as simple as the title reads. There is no challenge that was ever accepted that never brought change to the challengee (is there such a word?). According to one version of the English dictionary, the word challenge has been defined as, "the situation of being faced with something that needs great mental or physical effort in order to be done successfully and therefore tests a person's...

    What's the spelling of time? In my world, it is N-O-W i.e. NOW. Now is the only time you have because as you already know, yesterday is gone and tomorrow is yet to come.  Stephen R. Covey said something very profound; "The key is not spending it but investing in time." Why did he say that? Becasue there are people who "spend" their time doing useless, meaningless things that add no value to their... [Read More]

    As a sales person, I was  taught never to say no to a customer. Even if we didn’t have the solution in-house at that point,  the first thing was to say yes, then go look for a solution on how to fulfill that customer’s requirement. Needless to say, many are the times we were overwhelmed and exhausted from doing this, and half the time we were at logger-heads with the delivery team because of this... [Read More]

    Today you reaped (or will reap) whatever you did because sometime in the past you planted some seeds that have now borne you some returns. What you probably don’t realize is that some of those seeds might have been planted over a decade ago but you are reaping the benefits today.  Question is, what if you hadn’t planted those seeds then? That’s why I always tell people to make sure that no... [Read More]

    Many young people ignore this but the greatest gift your parents can ever give you (besides bringing you to this world and taking care of you) is a good education. Or should I call it an investment? Education is the foundation of all your future success. Now you might have read that and now you are wondering how you'll ever use stuff like algebra or calculus in your life. Well, you never know... [Read More]

      When I started motivational writing, it was more for myself than the world outside (my head). I was just collecting the positive ideas and thoughts I experienced on a day to day basis (not for public consumption), just for myself. Then a friend introduced me to the idea of blogging and since I love writing (and reading) I embraced the idea 100% even though I was initially afraid of people not... [Read More]

      Asking  for directions is something a lot of people (read men) avoid doing, yet it is something that can save them (read men) a lot of time. This weekend I found myself in a place I have never been to before, a place I have only been seeing on television or when I pass it while on the way to another destination, since this place (an institution actually) is strategically located on one of the...

      Sometimes an idea comes triggered by the most unlikely of events. This is the case with today’s article. This is not what I had planned to write for this week, but then something happened that made me change my mind. I will continue with what I had planned to right next week but for today, let me share my epiphany moment with you. It all started when this friend of mine sent me a whatsapp... [Read More]

      Today I’d like to talk about investing. When someone talks about investing, I know the first thought that comes to mind is the investing process that involves one to spend money with the expectation of achieving a profit or material result by putting it into financial schemes, shares, or property, or by using it to develop a commercial venture. This is not the kind of investing I’m referring to... [Read More]

    Today I want to talk about desire. When I say desire I know many people’s minds move towards the direction of that strong sexual feeling or appetite that causes human beings to throw caution to the wind for a few seconds of ecstatic abandon. No. That’s not my focus, Not for today anyway. Today I want to focus on that strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen... [Read More]

    The more I live in this world, the more I confirm that success is not a destination, but it is a journey. It took me a long time to get that fact right but eventually I did and now that it is in my mind, it no longer worries me any more that I might not get to my destination. Why? Because it is not the actual destination that counts but what you do between now and where your supposed destination... [Read More]

    Today I’ll let Calvin Coolidge speak for me:"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." Determination will go further than your skills, your... [Read More]

    There is a FIRST STEP in everything you do. Like the old adage says, “the journey of 1000 miles starts with the FIRST STEP." This day started with you opening your eyes and deciding to step out of bed. When you get to your office there will be that FIRST STEP you will need to take in order to set your day in motion. Could be taking our phone to call that customer, or opening your laptop to send... [Read More]

    “Just as a snake sheds its skin, we must shed our past over and over again.” ~ Gautama Buddha And you never see a snake going back to that skin again. Once it sheds it off it's off for good, never to go back to it again. I think we need to apply this process to our thoughts as human beings.  We need to shed off some "dead skin” called bad memories we often choose to carry around and dwell on... [Read More]

    Indeed life is like a long unwinding road heading somewhere upcountry; those are always several kilometers long and never really seem to come to an end.  Some parts are straight while some have bends. Some are uphill and some go downhill. Some parts have bumps while others have potholes; potholes of varied depths and sizes. But they all make part of YOUR road. Question is, do you know your...

    “Activity and rest are two vital aspects of life. To find a balance in them is a skill in itself. Wisdom is knowing when to have rest, when to have activity, and how much of each to have. Finding them in each other - activity in rest and rest in activity - is the ultimate freedom.” ~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar You need to rest in order to be productive. Your brain needs to shut down and cool off after... [Read More]

    Assuming you are on your laptop at night and then power suddenly goes off, what happens?  If your keyboard is illuminated then the light going off does not affect you. But if you are using one of those old laptops without illuminated keyboards, then unless you know how to type without looking at your keyboard you might as well shut down because typing will become a nightmare for you. When... [Read More]
