You are a Student

In 2016, I was recruited to manage the lifecycle of a digital product. I was very excited, motivated and certain that the product will be successful. I believed I was sitting on a goldmine and about to release the best thing after Coca-Cola. Days rolled into weeks, weeks into months and months into years. “My”…

Apples…

* #Copied* This story is for all of us….. As an old Irish saying goes…. “Three apples fell from the tree. One for he who tells the story, one for he who reads/listens to the story and one for he who understands.” You will have one apple when you read this …..I hope you receive…

Plus One

This afternoon, I was at my Vulcanizer’s to fix a new tyre. This Vulcanizer (of mine) has exemplified excellent customer service, he can serve as case study for Lagos Business school. Dilligent, consistent and always “out”serving his customers. This post is not about him, it is about Idris – his apprentice. I was to change…

No Waste

It is often said that “Men can’t multitask”, better put men are not good at multistasking. I have tried to test that theory but I have failed woefully. I have a colleague, I have chosen to call Lily, she is quick to remind me that I am poor at multitasking – this is because I…

Weddings…weddings…weddings. One of ny colleagues got married today, they both look young and in love, grinning at each other with many sweet unspoken words. Their family and friends were also very happy and obviously proud of these folks. The major things I liked about my outing today was the simplicity and blend of different cultures…

Thanks Phil

Earlier this afternoon I tried to do a form of “environmental sanitation” on my phone. I was deleting some old pictures in order to create space on my phone’s memory card. As expected I saw pictures that brought many memories…both good and bad. I stumbled on an appreciation e-card I got from Phil (my colleague)…

730 days After…

You have to be wary of who you call your friends. Today at work (during lunch) I opened up to my colleagues – these are people I call friends. I told them today is exactly 730 days my dad passed on, I told them I was feeling so emotional and needed some love.I gave them…

Rest

The last weekend was a very unique one for me. My weekends are usually characterised by gyming, swimming, (lots of) cooking, church activities and TV. But the last weekend was totally different, I managed to do one hour session at the gym and spent the entire weekend sleeping – I mean total REST. I could…

Peace

Monday morning meetings are usually dreadful, it is a time to give account of the previous week. A time to get an applause or a lash. I remember stammering, blabbling and speaking “grammar” during some Monday meetings. At the end I will sigh and say – I scaled through another Monday! Similar to other organisations,…

No be today…

Yesterday an old dear friend who I have decided to call Segs reached out to me. He has been nominated for a creative award and he was soliciting votes. Segs was my 1st friend in High School, we were roommates all through my Junior years. Apart from Segs generosity and height (he was taller than…

Hard Work, Works

Wow! It is good to resume writing after a long break. I have alot to share, many lessons I have picked along the line. I had a catch up with my Line Manager earlier in the week, he shared a popular quote from Denzel Washington – Hard work, works! You will agree with me that…
