    As we come to the end of February, I was just looking back at the month that was and I realized that even though it is a 29 day month, this month has literally flown. Lots of the stuff that I expected to accomplish in this month did not happen not because I didn’t initiate the process, but because there were third party inputs that needed to be made for me to accomplish them but unfortunately the...

    Why Focus? Because like Henry Ford said, "Obstacles are the frightful things you see when you shift your eyes from your goal..." Stay Focused.

    There are things that happen that leave you baffled while others leave you completely speechless. You don’t know whether to comment, or to scream, or to question… This was my reaction when I read an extract from a certain social media platform that had given a summary of the murder trial of one Mr. Ronald Opus. I have no idea who Mr. Opus was, why he was murdered and why his story ended up online... [Read More]

    The internet is full of funny stuff, things that can cause one to laugh till your ribs hurt like someone gave you a kick. With the emergence of social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, etc., sharing of such stuff has become very easy especially now that almost every other person has a smartphone and internet bundles to compliment the phone. Besides, almost every office and up-... [Read More]

    February is normally a very special month to me, and before you start thinking its because of Valentine’s day, please be informed that this is not one of the reasons why the month is special. February is special to me because besides being the only month with inconsistent days, it also happens to be the month that I was born in. It also is the month my first born son, my only sister and my Mom... [Read More]

    Every so often we go through stuff in life, either knowingly or unknowingly, that affect our identity, bringing in lots of insecurity to us. Sometimes we might not even know about them but the moment we become aware of them, then it becomes a problem right there. Here below I have shared with you two sides of a story that you must have read severally before. Read them to the end and think about... [Read More]

    It is sad how people go about life clueless and purposeless, forgetting that there is no way they could have been created if there was no purpose for them to fulfil. I know I have said this several times before but as I was thinking of what to share with my readers this week I was compelled to remind us all about living a purpose-led life, a life where you wake up in the morning not because your...

    Happy New Year to you all. I thank God for giving us all another opportunity to do life right. For many, this is a time for reflections and strategy making, a time when you review the year that passed and evaluate the quality of life you had vis-a-vis what you could have had, and why the difference. This is a time where you draw up a to-do-list and a not-to-do-list which is probably longer than... [Read More]

    When you see people walking on the streets, it is very easy to judge them based on how they look. It is very easy to rule them out based on how bad they are dressed, or to quickly accept them based on their ability to pack sentences. In short, it is very easy to quickly judge a person by their outward appearance as opposed spending time with them to try and really know who the person behind the... [Read More]

    It is inevitably that time of the season again when we experience little pockets of “madness” as a result of an animal we call politics. I confidently call it madness because according to an online dictionary I use, one of the definitions of madness is “a state of frenzied or chaotic activity” that is only experienced when certain activities are going on. For example, you can say that when... [Read More]

    I have to admit, there are times when even I feel like just throwing in the towel and giving up. Times when uncertainty hits me and I feel like not even my daily dose of motivation will make a difference to me. You know why this is so? Because before I am anything else, I am human first. I do get my lapses, I do get my “human-attacks”, I fear and panic like everyone else. The only difference is... [Read More]

    Before I finally decided to put my thoughts into words this week, I was divided between writing this article and three others that were bubbling inside of me. Not sure why but this one won the day and so I hope there’s someone out there who will really benefit and be inspired by the words they are about to read. A few weeks ago, I overheard someone saying to someone else that after a very long... [Read More]

    Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can't make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you'll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time. Telling someone that you love them but you do not show it through your... [Read More]

    Let’s face it, no matter who you are, all what you do, every so often you will have some days in your life when thoughts of self-doubt and insecurity attack you like a swarm of bees. This could be due to certain things happening in your life at that particular moment such as multiple failures in projects you are handling, a bad relationship, stagnated business,etc. Well, we are not super-beings (...

    It’s been a while since I have deliberately taken time to visit Facebook and either update my status message, or just read through other people’s post. So on Friday morning we were in traffic and since I was feeling somehow sleepy, I decided to go through Facebook. I came across many posts but two caught my attention. The first one caught my attention purely because of the title which said: 15... [Read More]

    It’s not every week I know what I will be sharing with you my readers. Sometimes my thoughts are so jumbled up that I don’t know where to start and to say the truth, sometimes I don’t get a clear direction until a few hours before I submit my article to Guardian. Today’s article is one such article. I wasn’t sure what I’d write about until early on Saturday morning when I was jogging, then just... [Read More]

    Every so often I will share something I found from the net that touched my heart for one reason or another. Today’s share comes from the footballing arena, specifically from a lot of people’s football sweetheart. His name is Cristiano Ronaldo, the ladies eye candy… J Anyway, moving on swiftly, this is the honorable and touching story of Cristiano. Moments after Real Madrid Football Club won their...

    I saw a meme on Google recently that had a very powerful impact on me. This meme had a picture of a lion and maybe a less than a month old cab.  The tiny little cab was looking up to the big ominous looking, huge-maned king of the jungle, while the king was looking softly downwards towards the little clue-less and innocent cat. The caption on the meme said, “I thought about quitting, but then... [Read More]

    May I start this article today by wishing all my Muslim brothers, sisters and friends from all over the world Eid Mubarak. May the genuine prayers and supplications you have offered to Allah during your fast be answered and made manifest in your lives and those of your families. Speaking of fasting, I took some time to do a little research to find out what Ramadhan is all about. As I was talking... [Read More]

    In my article last week I touched on the bitterness, anger, jealousy, envy, etc that seems to be ruling the world today. It seems like love has gone out of the world and instead of it there is hatred. But fortunately, there are a few people who still have their hearts filled with love and no matter what happens they don’t allow the contamination in the world to extend to them. Unfortunately, the... [Read More]

    If you haven't any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble. ~ Bob Hope

    Each one of us can do a good deed, every day and everywhere. In hospitals in desperate need of volunteers, in homes for the elderly where our parents and grandparents are longing for a smile, a listening ear, in the street, in our workplaces and especially at home. Remember: "The evil you do remains with you: The good you do, comes back to you!"
