Women: made for more than the ‘other’ room (2019)

Still in the celebratory atmosphere of our 4th anniversary, meet our MOST SIGNIFICANT POST … and it’s not because I am a lady. 🙂

 

First published: April 4th, 2017.

I came across this book when I was on maternity leave with my first child, wondering if the workplace would still need me when I get back or if it was worth it to leave my bundle of joy for the hustle of work. It’s been 4 years since then and I am still growing strong in the workplace which may not have happened if I hadn’t read this book. It is for women who want to make impact and men who want to support that vision – Tosan A.

Do you know the Law of Significance?

What does Bill Gates, Michael Jordan, Oprah and Beyoncé have in common besides the fact that they are crazy rich??? They all have TEAMS that work cohesively to make them shine so brightly that YOU are attracted to them.

We know so much about the value of leadership so much now and everyone wants to become a leader. Apart from leading one’s self, leaders need a team. Behind every successful person is a team of people working hard behind the scenes to make the person truly successful.

John C. Maxwell, author of the 21 irrefutable laws of leadership understands that teams are an essential part of leadership and vice versa, that’s why he has also done a study of teams in his book –

[BOOK REVIEW] THE 17 INDISPUTABLE LAWS OF TEAMWORK/ JOHN C. MAXWELL/ THOMAS NELSON INC. /2001/ 265 PAGES

john-maxwell-the-17-indisputable-laws-of-teamwork

The book has 17 chapters representing each law of teamwork. Each chapter has a story or research, or sometimes both to buttress the law being discussed. As usual, the author, John C. Maxwell uses easy-to-read English throughout the book and the stories make the laws stick and easy to understand. Continue reading “Do you know the Law of Significance?”

When God doesn’t make sense… Part Three

BOOK REVIEW: WHEN GOD DOESN’T MAKE SENSE: Holding on to your faith during the hardest times: DR. JAMES DOBSON: 1993: 250 PAGES

  • Establish your foundation not on ephemeral emotions but on the authority of the written word. Our feelings about His inaccessibility mean nothing! His word is more reliable than our spooky emotions.
  • Don’t lean on your own ability to understand, and most importantly don’t lose faith. I believe this is the most aggravating part of the whole saga, cos as humans we rationalize everything, and when we don’t understand things, we are thrown into disarray. We should not try to understand everything, we should aim to trust completely.

When God doesn’t make sense… Part Two

BOOK REVIEW: WHEN GOD DOESN’T MAKE SENSE: Holding on to your faith during the hardest times: DR. JAMES DOBSON: 1993: 250 PAGES

It moves on to explain what the author terms the ‘the Betrayal Barrier’ – the point where Christians get to where they feel betrayed by God about the situation they have prayed, fasted, and called on men of God or a group to pray with them. It exposes the feelings which even Christian leaders and matured Christians face when God has not spoken to them about the matter and they have to watch things spiral out of control as they get or even give the sad news.
