    This is part two of How You Do Anything Is How You Do Everything.

    Every day I have a routine of posting some inspirational stuff on my social media, especially on Instagram and on my Facebook Fan Page. This week I’ve been doing a lot of posts relating to change, change management, reflections and the like. In today’s article I want to continue with the same flow but first, let me encourage you to visit my Facebook page or my Instagram page. There is always... [Read More]

    Have you ever thought about the process it takes for a plane to fly or land? By the time the passengers are deplaning or boarding, the engines are normally off even if the plane had just landed twenty minutes earlier. Before the plane takes off, the pilot(s) go through intensive pre-flight processes before they can confirm they are ready for take off (again). In short, by the time the plane is... [Read More]

      May I first apologize to all you my esteemed readers for missing my article last week. Actually I did send it but unfortunately technology suffered amnesia and so instead of sending it when it was supposed to, it did so a day later. My sincere apologies for that. Having said this, I am glad that the editor of The Sunday Guardian was prepared and had a plan “B” because otherwise, it would have... [Read More]

    “I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions”, says Stephen Covey. Guess what? So are you! Take a few moments and let that sink in, as you reflect on where you are today and what decisions have led you there. When I was growing up, my Mum was very tough and half the time I used to feel she didn’t understand me. Her sense of fashion was “outdated” in my eyes, her lack of... [Read More]

    Are you feeling overwhelmed by all the challenges you are going through in your life? Are you feeling unhappy with your life and with the things that are going on (or not) in your life? Do you feel like you are working in the wrong place or profession? Do you feel like you have stagnated and instead of progressing you are retrogressing? How about your relationships, are they healthy and thriving... [Read More]

    I didn’t know what it means to experience REAL cold until I went to a region that is cold. Wah! Just thinking about it makes me feel colder than I already feel. It is so cold that as I type out this article, my laptop feels like it’s been in the freezer for a week. Even the annoying heat it produces has gone missing. For once I long for that heat of the laptop on my laps, but clearly, even the... [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...

    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]

    “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]

    “Tough times don't define you, they refine you.” ― Carlos A. Rodriguez I couldn’t agree with Carlos more. Imagine the process a carrot has to go through in order to produce carrot juice. It goes through some serious cutting and pressing, but eventually, the end result is this healthy, yummy, thick, fresh juice that cleanses your skin and detoxifies your body. Every one of us has a carrot moment;... [Read More]

    Watch your thoughts for soon enough you will become what you constantly think about.  That’s why Henry Ford said, "There are two kinds of people: those who think they can, and those who think they can’t. They're both right.” In other words, if you think you can be successful then soon enough you will start seeing the signs of success coming your way. If you think you will never be successful,...

    I’m yet to see a mediocre person who is successful. It’s kinda like saying one can be awake and asleep at the same time; actually wrong example - some people do; but I’m sure you understand what I mean. I like what the late Margaret Thatcher said on the issue of Success. To quote her: “What is success? I think it is a mixture of having a flair for the thing that you are doing; knowing that it is...

    A friend of mine was blessed with a baby boy just the other day. I’m sure you know that when I say she was blessed I mean she was pregnant and finally gave birth. When I went to see her in hospital 24 hours after delivery, she was still in a lot of pain. Her face was puffed up, she couldn’t walk or sit properly, she was tired and exhausted, was on a fluids only diet and above all, she was still... [Read More]

    Today I’d like to start this article by thanking all those who wrote back to me to wish me a quick recover after finding out I was unwell. Thank you all so very much for taking the time to check on me. I don’t take that for granted. May God bless you loads. On another note, I’d like to address another set of readers who seem to be having very complex questions that don’t seem to have answers... “... [Read More]

    "What you don't use you eventually Lose" Think about it. If you decided to sit still (like a statue) in one position for just one hour, what would happen to you behind and your legs? You start getting those "needles" that prick you. Why, because at that point your legs and butt are so uncomfortable they are screaming for help - relief. They need to be exercised a bit so that the blood can flow... [Read More]

    The other day I heard some Swahili sayings that reminded me those days when I was in school. We used to have this Swahili teacher who would consistently use Swahili sayings to instill the fear of life in us. Looking back at those days, now I realize that her intentions were right but her approach was somehow off. She should not have been using the sayings to scare us, but she should have been...

    Remember the story I shared last week about the cabbie named Wasu? Well, for some reason that story stuck in my mind and I found myself thinking about it consistently. I know what you are thinking; but you are the one who shared the story so why would you keep thinking about it? I guess the sole reason is because of the many lessons we can learn from Wasu, lessons like what happens when you... [Read More]

    Someone shared this story that I thought was quite something…. I was waiting in line for a ride to the airport somewhere in India. When a cab pulled up, the first thing I noticed was that the taxi was polished to a bright shine. Smartly dressed in a white shirt, black tie, and freshly pressed black slacks, the cab driver jumped out and went round the car to open the back passenger door for me. He... [Read More]

    The other day I was driving and saw some chicken walking around the backstreet I was driving on. I purposely increased my speed as I approached them to see what they would do. One that looked like the mother hen saw the car coming from her side eye and quickly quacked as though to warn off the smaller chicks, then she flapped her wings and attempted to fly but of course just ended up “flalking”...

    I had a very interesting experience on Friday, an experience I now refer to as the DART experience. For those who don’t know what I’m referring to, I am talking about the Dar Rapid Transport (DART) system that has completely revolutionized the transport system in Dar Es Salaam; at least for the areas where the system is now available. I chose Friday to use the system because I didn’t have the... [Read More]

    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]

    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]

    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]

    Envy. Jealousy. Bitterness. Anger. Hatred. These seem to be the constant “rulers” of the world we live in today. People being envious and jealous of your achievements, others being bitter and angry because according to them you got “easily” what they have been working so hard to get. As a result, the hatred that fills the hearts of many is so much and palpable that I think scientists and... [Read More]

    The word “Ebola” has been on almost everyone’s lips in the last few months especially after it started affecting people in parts of the world where it was never expected to touch. I have to admit that when I first heard of the disease a few years ago, I never thought it would be such a serious threat to the rest of the world since it was just in West Africa. After all, I lived (still do) in East... [Read More]

    Technology and specifically gadgets seem to have taken over our lives nowadays. Majority of the human race either has a smartphone, a tab/pad, a smart-watch, a laptop or a desktop computer. We have become so dependent on these gadgets that should they fail for whatever reason, that becomes a great reason for us to suffer major frustrations. For those of us who understand gadgets, we do know that... [Read More]
