Personal Development

  • Sun, 30th Sep 2018
    When I started the #52BooksIn52Weeks2018 Book Reading Challenge, I thought I had an idea of the kind of books I would read for the year. If you have been following my trend, you will realize that I started mostly with personal development books because that is what I really needed; to develop myself to become a better person in every aspect of my life. I understood that if I wanted any area of my... [Read More]

    The other day I met someone whose sense of humor is just on another level. We were talking about health and fitness, and how much people struggle to have a six-pack. Then from nowhere he said something that left everyone who heard him in guffaws, tears and rib aches. This is what he said, “You know what I have is a six-pack waiting to be properly arranged”. Actually it is the way he said it and... [Read More]

    When I was young, over Christmas holidays my cousins and I would be taken to the village by our parents to spend the holidays with our grandparents. We would spend lots of time engaging ourselves with farm-related activities such as coffee picking (my favorite activity), drawing water from the well to water the livestock that my grandparents had and also getting them napier grass to feed them. I... [Read More]

    PREP Time. Anyone who ever went to school, especially those schools with some high level of discipline must recall the famous PREP-time. It was a time when everyone would be quietly sitting at their desk in class reading for the next day’s exams, or finishing some homework before going home or back to the dorms, or just reading ahead of the teacher (for those we used to call “chopists” i.e. ...

    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]

    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]

    "All riches have their origin in the mind. Wealth is in ideas - not money" ~ Robert Collier Many people have it twisted that being rich is the same as being wealthy. You can be rich but not wealthy, but wealth can very well incorporate riches. The main difference between being rich and being wealthy is knowledge. Wealthy people know how to make money while rich people only have money.  Rich... [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...

    … Let me explain. Jim John was fond of saying this during his many speaking engagements; “You don’t get paid by the hour. You get paid for the value you bring to the hour.” And he was right! That is why two people can spend the same amount of time in the same office, maybe even sitting at the same workstation but when the end of the month comes, the salary cheque has a difference of several “...

    It is interesting how human beings tend to not communicate with certain people until they find themselves caught up in a situation that requires them to “remember” those people arises. I admit, I have done this severally, and even you, if you will be honest with yourself will admit that there are people you have in your phonebook that you haven’t spoken to in years; some you probably can’t even...
