I recently read an article where the author advised people to stop using the word Asian to refer to 4.6 billion people.
This took me back to a question I have asked myself for so long….
Can we exist without definitions?
If you met me, there is no doubt I am human… Very dark, 6'2", lean, huge nose, very short curled hair…I’m unmistakably African… Based on my values, you could place me somewhere in the East of Africa and then based on my mother tongue and name, you would place me in Uganda.
After all that analysis of me, you…
Trying to inspire someone while at the same time intentionally or unintentionally making them feel guilty is what I call “guiltspiration”.
Example: Imagine you are starting out at 0 building a coaching business and you watch your inspiration and role model successful coach offer advice on how he built his business and his advice to you and several other people on youtube is this… “Listen to me because I have made so much money doing this which means I know what I am talking about. …
If you have ever used a smartphone as your alarm clock as I do, chances are you have knowingly or unknowingly hit the snooze button instead of the button meant to switch off the alarm.
This is may be because you want to have an extra minute to sleep or it could be because the buttons are so close to each other only being separated by swipe directions.
Most self-help books I read and people who talk about hustle culture are strongly against hitting the snooze button.
Being poor is not just about having no money in your life. It can also mean being poor in health, love, and happiness. The persistent lack of money or these other necessities of a comfortable living in a person’s life is never something that happens by chance but an effect resulting from causes rooted in behavior and habits.
The habits we choose to have in our lives set up a series of events that lead us to where we eventually find ourselves whether in desirable or undesirable conditions. Habits can be had to find and change in ourselves since we…
When I think about my existence and that of other individuals around the world, I am filled with so much happiness and gratitude.
Imagine that your chances of coming here were basically zero and yet you still overcame those odds and are now present in this life.
When you get here, depending on where you are born, people begin molding you into ideal social constructs that they know best.
As individuals, however, none of us while here on earth as babies ever get to pick and choose what ideas we accept as ideal or not.
A blank canvas we all…
This was because Charlie Munger, (a 97-year-old investor, a business partner of Warren Buffet, and vice chairman of Berkshire Hathaway )criticized brokerages for making money by selling gambling services to people and also compared retail investors who engage in momentum trading to gamblers betting on racehorses.
The time I lost $25000 in a single day a few years back to people who set up such businesses that take advantage of people’s ignorance and mistakes ran through my mind and I found Charlie’s concerns valid even though…
It’s hard to believe that just less than 5 months ago, I had never considered writing here and now, there are over 102 people who read one of my stories and decided to stay.
Thank you for being here. I know that most people don’t consider 102 a huge number but I do. I can’t help thinking that the excitement that this gives me speaks to some unexamined insecurity I have but I won’t look for it.
All I know is that you people and many others have given me a platform to write, challenged all the ideas I heard…
“You know what ?… Let’s switch off the internet for the whole country so that people cannot riot when we fake the election results.”
I currently live in such a country where we have had the same president since 1986 and he feels like he’s the only one who's got a vision for the country and makes sure he lets all the citizens know this.
As of 2020, Sub-Saharan Africa had 19 dictatorships and one of them is in my country.
He runs the country like it’s his cattle ranch, slaughtering people when it favors him, caging/ imprisoning those who…
A lot of people know this yet most of us still fall victim to the consequences of its violation.
I know and I have experienced the extremes and behaviors that resulted in my effort to make sure I never lost anyone in my life.
The idea of “once friends and now strangers” was something that I would never accept to happen in my own relationships until it almost cost me my life.
But as much as I think those days are behind me, I still see the influence that this still has on other people’s lives.
So many people from…
Most of us in life strive for something to some degree. We may not all push our capabilities towards creating a colony on another planet but we all push some areas of our lives for the better.
Whether you are a student trying to get good grades, a parent trying to make your children’s lives a little better, someone trying to find love, someone trying to build the next Amazon or any form of action you may take to make your life a little better you’ll probably experience these zones of progress in relation to your endeavors.
