    Today I want to take you back to 1993, and specifically to a film called Sister Act 2. If you haven’t watched that movie you need to get online and watch it.  Speaking of going online, isn’t it amazing how innovation and technology has made life easier (yet more complex) for us? Today you can Google the movie and watch it online without having to go down the road to borrow the movie from the... [Read More]

    Every so often I get some unexpected cravings for some of the most ridiculous things; a boiled egg, stir-fried veggies with lots of hot red chilli, lemon grass tea with deep fried cassava douced in home-made chili sause, etc.  And then there are those moments I crave some juicy tenderized steak, marinated in different spices and flavours and prepared as per my craving for that day i.e. either...

    Is it just me or has this year hit the ground running, literally? It feels like the clock is ticking faster than usual, the minutes are shorter than usual and the days have less than 24 hours. It’s hard to believe we are already on the 2nd week of 2018. Week one is gone forever, never to be seen again; out of 52 weeks, we now have 51 remaining. If I may ask you, what did you achieve in that first... [Read More]

    One of the ways of ensuring you have a more productive year than the previous year is by reading as many books as possible. Books are not only a rich source of knowledge but also for inspiration and motivation. You might be going through a tough time in your life but when you read a certain book, the character in that book resonates with your situation, causing you to feel strangely calm and... [Read More]

    Today is the last day of 2017. If you can read this it means you have seen the last day of the year and that in itself is something to be grateful to God for. Not everyone you started the year with has made it this far and if you see no other reason to be thankful today, be thankful for making it this far. At midnight today, the transition from 2017 to 2018 will happen.  People will mark this... [Read More]

    There’s nothing as bad as getting lost on the way to some place you’ve never been to before, yet the GPS on your system tells you that you’ve reached your destination, but when you look around there is no way your destination can be anywhere near where you are. Why? Because the entire place is just bush and shrubs, yet you are sure you were not going to a camping site but someone’s residence,... [Read More]

    I really don't like creepies of any kind, but this story here made me change my mind about frogs for a few minutes.... Read the story here.   A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants…. The race began… Honestly.. No one in crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower.. You heard statements such as.. “Oh, WAY too difficult... [Read More]

    If you do follow me on social media, then you must have noticed that I continued with the subject of procrastination, a subject that I started last week. Based on feedback I received from that article, I decided to delve deeper into the various reasons why people tend to procrastinate. If you don’t follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, I encourage you to do so because I use that platform a... [Read More]

    This week I’d like us to address the issue of PROCRASTINATION. We are in the 11th month of the year and someone is probably asking themselves where the other 10 months went because they are yet to achieve anything from the 2017 To-Do List they had created on 31st December 2016.  Well, here’s a likely answer; The good looking, tall, dark chocolate, lean and handsome dude called PROCRASTINATION...

    Many people go through life not living their purpose. Many actually wonder what their purpose is. Someone asked me how one can identify their purpose and in answering that question, I decided to do a short clip. If you had a similar question, hope this clip fills in the gaps for you. Be Ignited. Be Inspired. Be Influenced. Become the best version of yourself you can ever be.

    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]

    Today marks the beginning of a new month. It is a reminder that 4 months are gone; 8 more to go. It is also a reminder that what’s gone is gone and cannot be recovered, however, you have the gift of today, and you can get a lot done if you put your mind to it. Forget all you didn’t do before. Look forward to all you can still do with this new opportunity of a new month you now have. A new month... [Read More]

      If you were to ask most people, they will tell you that in order to start a business you must have money. Well, that may be true but not entirely so. Look at it this way, what if you had the money but you didn’t know what business to start, would you still start a business? You can’t start something you don’t know now, would you? I guess not.    The most important aspect of a business is the... [Read More]

    For any building to get built, it starts from a vision, or what we call the building’s blue print. This is a plan that shows the owner of the building every single detail of the proposed building, down to the minutest detail.  The building starts with an idea (think it) in the mind which is then translated into a visual (ink it), which then leads the people concerned to put all the relevant plans...

    Going after your dream, or walking your designated path may not necessarily be easy. Today I want to share a story about someone whose dream was almost snuffed out by a teacher. Yes, a TEACHER. When his teacher asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up, he wrote down on his paper that he wanted to be on TV. His teacher sarcastically asked him whether he personally knew someone on TV, to... [Read More]

    In other words, when you are young, work for the experience not for the pay cheque. Once you have accumulated all the skills and experience you can in your area of focus, then you can start calling the shots but until then, earn to learn. Remember yesterday I did mention that one of the keys to success is reading informative materials. Now, if you read the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad, there is a... [Read More]

    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]

    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...

    The other day I was listening to a podcast that was quite interesting; interesting because it had illustrations based on the lives of animals in it. Those of you who have been following me for many years obviously know that I love animals and especially dogs. For a change though, this illustration had nothing to do with dogs but all the same it had quite a captivating story, and hence my... [Read More]

    It is the first Sunday of the final quarter of the year. Not sure you’ve noticed this, but we are already in the quarter represented by double digits, and the festive season is just around the corner. This is normally a defining moment for many, where one person suddenly realizes they’ve wasted a whole nine months, while another jumps in jubilation because they are actually doing very well on...

    The other day a friend and brother in Christ went to Facebook to show off his latest business venture; chicken farming, specifically broilers. He has quite a number of broilers and as I watched them, my mind went back to basics. Suddenly I had this crazy question nagging me at the back of my mind wanting to be desperately answered. Question was, how do those tiny chicks manage to break out of an... [Read More]

    If you read last week’s article then you do know that this month we are focusing on the gifts. Everyone has a gift they were sent to this world with; some have one others have many but regardless of the number of gifts one has, the bottom line is that each one of us was sent to this world with the a gift. The problem is that not many people have taken the time or the effort to find out what their... [Read More]

    Happy New Month Y’all! I don’t know why but I am super excited about this new month. I guess it is because I have some renewed energy to go after my dreams and goals with gusto. To kick off our August theme, here below is a short story I’d like you to read: Once upon a time there were two incredibly intelligent and capable boys. Their wonderful talents were obvious from an early age, and they... [Read More]

    We all know that women are very good at multi-tasking, something men are not very gifted in unless it involves the remote control and food – no offense men. A woman could be in the sitting room breastfeeding the baby, at the same time sewing a button on her child’s shirt, while watching her favorite soap on Television, and talking to you on phone but is still capable of hearing the conversation...

    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! Yes, I know what you are thinking; that I probably had too much to drink this weekend and had all the dates in my mind messed up. No ladies and gentlemen. It’s true I did drink a lot this weekend, just like any other day anyway, but the strongest drink I indulge in is coffee, and my favorite is a lot of water. And yes I do know today is 3rd July 2016. I said Happy New Year and I... [Read More]
