Choices

    Every so often, I post something on social media that is “supposedly” funny. Last week , I posted this right here... This was immediately after taking one liter of coffee – I have a 1 liter mug I use for this purpose. Anyway, someone saw this on my Instagram and followed me to my inbox and just said this; “Liz, I’m a procrastinator. HELP!!” I looked at that statement right there and jokingly... [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 Her sense of fashion was “outdated” in my eyes, her lack of...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]

    Everybody in life is going through some challenge or another. That's a given. But not everybody has the capacity to handle whatever challenge comes their way well. Some become irritable and irrational, treating everyone around them like they are the cause of their challenges, while others hide it so well, you'd think their lives are challenge free. Unfortunately there are also others who are... [Read More]

    You first conceive it in your mind before you act on it in the physical. Every action ever performed on earth first happened in the mind as a thought before it became a reality for the person who conceived it. Unless someone is possessed by demons, no one does things withouth having thought them (through) first. For instance when you slap someone, it doesn't just happen by mistake; it is... [Read More]

    This quote by Jim Rohn (the late) says alot in fourteen words; "You are the average of the FIVE people you spend the most time with" To best illustrate it, let me share a story I'm sure you must have heard or read about at some point in your life. Here goes.... There’s an old, well known story of a chicken farmer who found an eagle’s egg. He put it with his chickens and soon the egg hatched. The... [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]

    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]

    Decisions.  Very tricky “things” those are, yet there is no escaping them. Every single day we have to make decisions that affect our lives in one way or another. If for instance you decided to stay home today without permission from your employer instead of going to work, then be prepared to face the repercussions of that decision tomorrow. If you decided to invest in the stock market today... [Read More]

    Forget it is Monday, and believe it or not, today is a gift with your name on it. But guess what? You have the choice to unwrap your gift, or just keep it at a corner somewhere and keep complaining about how blue the Monday is, or how wet the land is or how bad things have become…… Or you can choose to unwrap it, see the beauty in it despite all the other negative things surrounding it, and...

    I often wonder why people hate Mondays. Isn’t it a day like any other day? Doesn’t it have 24 hours like any of the other 6 days of the week?  Then I figured out what the problem was: most people hate Mondays because it is a long way off from "excitement" i.e. the weekend.  I know this is true because the same people love Mondays when it is part of a long weekend, like the up-coming Easter...

    At some point in your life you must have heard the saying, “choices have consequences”. Yes. Whether good or bad choices, there are always consequences to deal with; could be good or bad.  Say for example Ian Jege, a very talented friend of mine who has had it with people taking advantage of his kindness. He posted this on his Facebook wall…… "Dear friends, I hope your Sunday is treating you well... [Read More]

    Sometimes when you go to the market to buy groceries you might feel like going back home without having bought anything. This is the case especially because of some of the things you hear people saying. For instance, you hear people talking about where some of those leafy greens are grown; somewhere around a sewer. Then you imagine that possibly whoever is going to cook those greens at home might... [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 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”...

    You never know how much “clutter” you’ve accumulated over the years until the day you are moving houses or for whatever reason you decide to re-organize your house or just one of the rooms, say your bedroom for example. In the bedroom, you have your wardrobe full of clothes, but if you are just starting out in life, maybe you don’t have a big house with a designated bedroom and a wardrobe just... [Read More]

    They say mentally disturbed people are found in mental hospitals but from what I’ve been seeing lately, it seems like most of them are on the roads openly displaying their level of madness. Yes, I am talking about the many insane drivers we encounter every day we are on these roads. Interestingly enough, it doesn’t matter whether you are in Dar Es Salaam, Arusha, Nairobi or Kampala. It seems like... [Read More]

    There are so many opportunities created by life for us to laugh hysterically but unfortunately, we are so busy passing through life to notice those moments. We are so busy being busy we forget to enjoy the free unique pleasures life always throws our way. What I have realized is that if we were to look at life from a “lighter view” we would realize there is so much humor in our day to day lives,... [Read More]
