Let’s talk about love

According to Leo Buscaglia, “Love is life and if you miss love, you miss life.” He also said “the life and love we create is the life and love we live”.

I shall not bore you with several definitions because virtually everyone can define it in a way.

I can identify four types of love: the filial/familial, the friendly/platonic, the romantic/sexual and the agape

Love is defined as “a complex set of emotions, behaviors and beliefs associated with strong feelings of affection, protectiveness, warmth, and respect for another person.


The most common way to define boredom is having nothing to do. Almost everyone suffers from it in the course of their lives.

Boredom is just a message sent to you by your subconscious mind to tell that there are more important things to do than what you are doing now.

Why do we get bored of things we used to like?

Organization as an Instrument of Domination

People who see organizations as an instrument of domination are often terrible people to work with and for. They see employees as objects to be subjugated. They also tend to see the natural resources available to the company as theirs to exploit.

When this metaphor works: in some cases, this is the most realistic view of organizational life (sadly).

When this metaphor fails: this view can be adopted by activists who paint a miserable and myopic view of any kind of effort concentrated to a capitalist end.

The problem of organization

I can now confidently posit that organization is the biggest challenge in Nigeria. And whoever solves this problem would be the winner come next decades.

In 2019 while working on my graduate thesis, I come across a very interesting stat by International Financial Center which says;

Approximately 96% of Nigerian small businesses are SMEs compare to 53% in the USA and 65% in Europe.

And these are the folks that employed the most working people asides those working for government, who are definitely less than 30% of the working populations.

Culture Over Love

I thought being a Rtd military man, who fought for Nigeria during the civil war would make you look at life and things differently, but then I am wrong. You are lucky to have been my older brother, if not, I would have given Fati’s hand in marriage myself, after all Kazim is from a very good home, raised here before our very eyes.

Kazim and Fati were peers who grew up in the same neighborhood, became friends and got attached to each other. Everyone had grown accustomed to the two, that many admired them both young and old with the old praying and hoping their relationship would last a lifetime.

Study less study smart

One of those things I’m always fascinated about is how to study, and as such, I usually actively look for better ways to learn effectively.

In one of my adventures, I found the following;

Study break

When you’re ready to study and start to feel that moment you’re wasting your time. Note the time and write it down.

The typical time is 25-30 minutes -Women decided to study 6 hours a day from 6pm to midnight 5 times a week and failed every class. By the time she hit 6:30 she stopped studying effectively and the longer she studying the less reinforced it was.

My Shoe!

Marilyn Monroe said “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can rule the world”.

Shoes that we wear reveal a lot about our personalities. That is, we wear our hearts not on our sleeves but on our shoes.

Can you tell a lot about a person by their shoes? Yes, apparently it does. Just by shoe-gazing or simply taking a look at shoes! Shoes can be used as a cue to predict with a striking 90% accuracy of someone’s personality or even his/her mood on that day.

The month I started hating my period

The cycles were cycling like they used to, it was the second time I would be expecting my menstrual period. I was so happy, my mom said I’m now a lady and my dad was explaining to me what it meant to go on a date. 

No, that wasn’t the first time I would know about dating, it was just the time that my dad remembered to talk about it because my mom informed him that it’s almost my second circle. 

What if a person dreamt of something different

Christopher Nolan’s Man Of Steel still remains one of the best Superman movie ever made, aside the great fight scenes, CGI, the main beauty of the movie is the story. The clash between society and individual beliefs. We see the planet Superman comes from, where every living being’s role is predetermined before birth, everyone has a role society has placed on his/her shoulders and the person must fulfill that role no matter what. We see the dream of one person that “what if a child dreamt of something different from what society intended for him or her”.

Celebrate yourself!

What are you doing today to celebrate Yourself? Not sure? You don’t have time? The fact I know is that the life of this world is nothing but amusement, diversion, adornment, boasting to one another and competition in increase of wealth. You can’t appreciate yourself yet because you’ve not gotten your goal? Are you too hard on yourself? Is it because of your thirst for success? Is life that too hard? You have to be extremely careful, Extremely careful because over doing it may lead to “Self hate”. You will lack self appreciation.
