Effectiveness & Success

Stephen Covey in his very popular book, 7 Habits of Highly Effective people enumerated the 7 habits that every one that we can call effective displays. One question that comes to my mind however is, “Can we really be effective without having a big picture, a dream, a vision etc.?” If I were to be […]

You are Royalty!

Do you remember this tale? A certain man went through the forest looking for birds that he could add to his domestic possessions. He found a young eagle, brought it home and put it among his chickens and ducks. Even though it was an eagle – the king of birds – he fed it with […]

The Stupid Wise Woman

The basis of this story maybe a little controversial to some people and maybe patronizing to others. It’s all about Femi and his wife Adaora. You see, Femi is my childhood friend. He’s an epitome of smartness; obtained First Class Hons. in Chemical Engineering from Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria, a Masters degree from Cranfield and […]

The Wisdom in Your Notes

You know, I was just thinking sometimes ago while making a note of something; “how often do I refer to these notes, especially when they are not work- related? Even when I refer to them, do I take time to really study and use them?” Except you were joking while making those notes, I bet […]

Hard Stop!

What you do repeatedly turns into a habit: you can terminate the cycle by a number of hard stops before it destroys you!

It’s a new week in a new month of love! Isn’t it interesting how much we have come to accept February 14th as a day to celebrate love? Thanks to St. Valentine and the people who decided to remember him and his act of love. Love has many characteristics, and if you read the bible, […]

God Says No to Good…

Do you know those awkward times you wake up very tired and you don’t feel like doing anything? Not like Bruno Mars in The Lazy Song, it was more of being sad. That was how I felt on this fateful morn. You see, I’ve just got a not very palatable news a night before and […]

My Crush on …Linda Ikeji

This is my true confession, I had a crush on…Linda Ikeji the blogger (face covered). Please don’t tell my wife if she hasn’t already seen this. Wait o! Don’t crucify me yet, you’ll get your opportunity to do so later, that’s if you really want to. I mean she’s pretty; was a model, not an […]

What I Learnt from the 7 Star Worker Conference

…So Jimi Tewe, the convener of the 7 Star Worker Conference invited me to be one of the panelists at the event. You can guess what the feeling was, “excitement”. Not only did he put our names on the flyers but he also created customized flyer for each speaker and panelist. I guess you know […]
