There seems to be so much information and knowledge in the social media space. There is practically no aspect of life or subject matter that you won’t find information on if you ever bother to find out. Google has become a verb – “just Google it”. The knowledge market is being disrupted and it is evolving. From traditional mode of communication and knowledge sharing to the digital and information. The disruption and evolution added opportunities not just for learning but ...

As a little girl, I saw my parents work hard daily and so hard to earn a living, gain advancement and promotion on the job and work till retirement. The job then was secured, predictable, they both retired and I am a proud product of their livelihood; they gave my siblings and I the best they could afford. In those days, it was desirable to stay on a job as jobs were secured; promotion was predictable, staying to term was desirable, term meaning retirement so as to earn the full entitlement. Yea...

Someone once said new month greetings is overrated, like every new month you must make some greetings and prayers. Like we have become event conscious, whether social, public, national holiday, the first day of a year, a new month, new weekday an event. The activities before such days, events or occasions are hyped with salutations, emotions and so many encomiums and the days after such days thereafter might just be like every other days. Do you think greetings for days and events are overrated?...

This thought came to mind this morning and I decided to share here.🤔 When you put together these four (4) letters ~ T W S O Do they make any sense to you just by looking at them? Not likely as the words don’t seem to be adding up for proper pronunciation. So what happens? Leave it as it is, rework and solve the puzzle? We will only be able to make any sense of it when we start to assess, rearrange and reposition those words in our minds, then we begin to have meanings. So with the infle...

I always find myself in emotional conversations with gainfully employed folks who seem tired, stalled or frustrated seeking different or greener pastures. To folks outside, their job is the dream job while to them, it’s no longer the dream job, it has become a chore and no longer meeting their current needs. It can be tough seeing people who have earned accolades and respect on one aspect of life suddenly feeling dissatisfied and helpless on another plane. They feel nothing short of unsucc...

Today’s post is just different! I had prepared this post over two weeks and just kept pushing it aside but the urge to send this morning is damn strong and I couldn’t resist giving in 🙅‍♀️ Maybe you are like me with a long list of things to achieve as the year progresses; there seems to be so much to do and in your mind, you really need to mumble words of prayer or have a prayer chain on for all, irrespective of the aspect of life in focus. In my part of the world, we are very r...

How does it happen that our minds latch on things – people, places, events that we are becoming familiar with? The moment you buy a new car let’s say a red car, you will begin to find red car everywhere you go. The specification of the item stamps on our minds and we begin to relate with it in our minds. In the same light, you go to a familiar area with new buildings and you start asking questions what was on this land space before… you might have to think hard or ask to get an...

My last article on how I got emotional seeing a guy with a great talent who couldn’t earn a dime got a lot of feedback. I thought my emotions was only for people with talents who are yet to package it and maximise it, I was so wrong!! There are more people on a job with seemingly no gain! From the feedback, the trend of demoralised employees, aggressive bosses, insensitive bosses, unpaid salaries, unrewarded and underpaid jobs is on the rise. The feeling of being undervalued for an activel...

In my years of recruiting, interacting with people and helping people to build career, I have met with quite a number of talented and smart people. For many, I just shrug it off and move on to the next while to some I connect and sincerely wish I could help. I have walked same path myself and with loved ones, it is a walk for the bold. I feel restless every time I see strong and smart folks unemployed and I see them daily in their numbers, but I have never wept. But I wept this fateful Friday ni...

A greater part of daily life goes into having a job, work, vocation, career or business. Whether working for someone, self employed, waiting to get a job or start a business, the preoccupation is very active towards getting a job, keeping or advancing on the job. Have you ever thought about this: if you have a job, all that will matter is to keep the job, get a better job and advance to the peak point. Same rule applies if you run a business, you will hustle to gain customers, gain leads, make s...

We were raised to be our best and still be humble, taught not to sing our praises and not to speak too highly of ourselves as that might come across as proud and haughty. We were advised to keep it low, softly and quiet. By implication, we hardly use adjectives to describe ourselves. When we get to the point where critical decisions are made, where the rubber hits the road, where great assets are allocated, the lot and the greater lots get to the loud-mouthed and the sweet-mouthed; it’s no...

Monday passed and it doesn’t feel like one! Yeah, it was Easter‼ So, still in the mood, I’ll say Happy Easter. I have been sharing my thoughts on identity the past few weeks and I have gotten interesting feedbacks. My submission is that most of us will live our whole lives knowing, building up and reinforcing who we are and who we need to be. We will need to listen to ourselves enough to begin to make sense to ourselves. Our description of self has largely been based on what we wer...

Everytime we have a chance to meet and engage in conversation with an individual or a group, formal or informal, professional or myundane, there is a common factor of expectation of “making sense” to say it in the most simplistic manner. You just need to make sense to hold people’s attention or for them to take you serious, inspire and hopefully get the most desirable result out of them. I remember a book I read many years ago on how to be a Diva and the author listed the recom...

How did the previous week exercise of self introduction to self go? Did you realise how easy it is to describe others than it is to describe ourselves. I’m hoping we attempted the exercise. Oftentimes, we describe ourselves by labels – what we do or who we were told to be, the circumstances we find ourselves or events that happen to us. We feel comfortable with an appellation or nomenclature especially for a job designation, perhaps because it feels cool…. At the end of the day...

April is here too? Uhn? Just like March, it will soon be gone. Here is my ‘flows’ for this month…. YOU Have you ever had the task to describe someone very familiar to you to another person? You must have at one point in time or the other; whether you want to describe your childhood story and your family member, your friend, a new found lover, a new found muse or even someone that hurts deeply… 🤔 How do you go about doing this? From the basic physical description of col...
