In saying my goodbye to 2018, I want acknowledge the lessons it has taught me from the books I’ve read, the reviews I have written & running a blog.

I am personally open to learning from just about anything… from movies, to random things, to nature , from conversations, anything and of course games: candy crush.
I am one of the late joiners to the world of candy crush but nonetheless i have welcomed and accepted this game as my break-in- transmission tool. Starting from level 1 to level 309 ( I know you are already at level 1500 but did you learnt what I learnt?)
Here are 3 lessons about life I picked from playing Candy crush. Continue reading “Life lessons from Candy Crush!”

What I ‘saw’ in the match between Barca and PSG

 

A lot of us watched the match and most of us saw Barca do what they know how to do best. Someone saw something else which we can all take a cue from… You should read this whether you agree with the scores, the referee’s position or not – Tosan A.

What I learnt from Barca’ s comeback. There’s a lot to learn from Barca’s historic comeback. Trailing 4-0 from the first leg, they needed to score at least 5 to go through. In the course of the game the opposition got 1 goal to worsen Barca’s situation. The score was now 5-3 on aggregate. Barca […]

How a cluttered desk affects your mind

 

if-a-cluttered-desk-is-a-sign-of-a-cluttered-mind-of-what-then-is-an-empty-desk-a-sign

A lot of things fight for our emotional space, attention in our minds and thoughts. While some thoughts are welcome, others are draining. Just the thought of that person, undone task, disorganised desk, incomplete project or even just a promise not kept could literarily take a huge piece of our emotions and occupying lots of space in our minds making us stressed, unhappy or even guilty.

Ever wondered why your morale just drops or you suddenly feel unproductive when find yourself at work on a disorganized desk? Continue reading “How a cluttered desk affects your mind”

Two down! boom!

boom

It’s the end of another lovely month (February)! It’s been power packed and full! but I’m glad it’s one more down (decided not to put the number of months to go…). Thanks to my blog followers who take time out of their busy schedules to read my posts and share. You guys keep me going. Thanks.

A brief recap if you missed any post this month;

 

1-step
#thisishowwedoit

Can you describe yourself to a child or someone who isn’t particular about your educational or professional achievements? Describe yourself gives you a starting point. I got a comment from Yewande which sums up the impact of this post.

This is so true. A friend asked me once to write 100 achievements starting from age 6.

Believing it will be easy peasy, I set out to start only to get stuck after writing 15 achievements in 1 hour so thanks a lot Tosan, I now know how to go about it. Good job.

 

To be big or to be great? tries to open our minds to our options as business owners – Is Go big or Go home the only option? This is what Humble though of it;

Great! I admire how you took your time to break things down.

It is true that while our individual views at the so called “small giants” insinuates that they are “local champs”. On the contrary, it could be that the driver’s mission/goal is/was to remain small but great.

It buttressed further in suggesting that there is need to draft Mission and Vision Statements for our business ventures. And should not be afraid to remain small giants if that was it’s original intent.

Thanks Tosan

Turn on the passion is my first short story, we learn a lot from things not even related to what is happening in the immediate. The hectic life of a wife & mom of two teaches us a thing or two on how to pursue our goals.

The New Age Seller redefines the idea of selling. In today’s economy where price hikes are the norm, This would help you get the desired results that keep you selling even when all else fails.

Who’s excited about March! I am!

Describe yourself.

As a kid, this was one of the first essays of many to come, where you would describe yourself complete with your likes, dislikes and hobbies. Now, this has been upgraded to terms like your profile, your bio among others. Only this time the focus is on more professional and educational achievements not the individual per se.
