We all know that one person who does not listen to their physician who has trained for a minimum of 10 years. Rather, that silly person just goes with the flow, ignoring all symptoms and engaging in self imposed ignorance (and borderline foolishness). I developed a severe allergic reaction on my neck and had no clue what I was reacting to. I conducted in depth … Continue reading Prescriptions
The voices in our heads try to protect us from perceived pain or disappointment. Sometimes, we need to ignore those voices and press on. Continue reading You’re gonna make it!
How appropriate is showing anger in the workplace? This is a question I repeatedly ask myself as I have matured over the years. At the start of my career, I would swallow any rising anger that rose from my belly. A client or senior colleague is being outrageously rude? I smile away my anger and take in the rudeness not willing to make the environment non … Continue reading Professionally angry
When I started reading a book a day for a time period this year, I wrote down reasons I was doing so. I made sure the chosen books will not take me more than 5 hours a day to complete as I have daily duties to perform/ a job. Once I published my reading challenge, many people wondered how I will go about this. I … Continue reading Why read so much?
I hardly write about relationship issues simply because I am no relationship expert but these days, random articles pop up about what women are looking for in men; what men want in a woman…it is driving me crazy!
As these issues come up on my social media feed a lot, I have decided to lend my voice to this discussion
I think many of us approach this issue the wrong way.
It’s not generally about what you want in a man/ woman. It’s about what you can offer.
Hear me out.
In business relationships or in the work place, potential business partners, investors and employers (i.e. potentials) firstly… Continue reading What do I bring to the table?
Sometimes, I do not understand how I get myself into situations like these. I decided to make myself spicy beef sauce from scratch. This involves finely dicing the tatashe (scotch bonnets) and onions, making tomato paste and cooking the beef. I made the delicious sauce and ate it with cous cous, sweet corn and peas. I went straight to food heaven after that sumptuous meal. … Continue reading I did not think this through
I am often amused with the number of people I meet who randomly/ casually tell me they are CEOs. When I then ask the question about who they report to, they cut me short with “I am the boss of me and report to no one but myself”. The religious ones tell me they report to God. Story. If you are the CEO of an … Continue reading Will the real CEO please stand up?
In December 2016, TCL (The Creative Life – maker of Alcatel phones) formally acquired the rights to the defunct Blackberry brand. Let’s talk about BB for a second. It was the rave of the early 00’s. I remember almost selling my soul to buy my first BB for N40k (£102). Not only did I want one badly because of the hype, I had played with … Continue reading Crackberry
There is something about meetings that unnerve me…especially if I am presenting at the said meeting. I deliver multiple projects that impact business activities and need to be assessed periodically so as not to cause a domino effect to other IT systems. So having meetings are inevitable. I cannot escape even if I wanted to. Preparing for my first Go/no go meeting of the year … Continue reading Cowabunga
One of the things that fascinated me when I moved to London was the public transport system. I found it so good and reliable (compared to the appalling system in my home city – Abuja) that I made a decision not to bother having a car as long as I lived here. You see, I made my calculations and decided that driving was an exercise … Continue reading Just do you
For whatever reason, I have decided it is possible for me to read a book a day as long as the said book is between 200-300 pages (paperback). This decision was inspired by my to-read list which was at 109 books. At the rate I was reading earlier, it would have taken 3 years to read all those books. First thing I did was to whittle down my … Continue reading A book a day? Are you crazy?
I woke up this morning thinking it was Friday. This is what the Christmas holiday week does to me. I was fully dressed in work clothes and ready to catch the train when I realised: a. I am on holiday (Duh!) b. It is a Saturday c. I need sleep Since I was already dressed to the nines, I decided to go to one of … Continue reading Early Morning Musings
