Start with God and proceed from there

A long while ago, my late father took me out to dinner while I was going through a difficult patch in my life. After sitting down and ordering food, he inquires about my well-being. I tell him I'm not in a good place and proceed to describe the events that led me here. [I don't…

The effect of energy

Today, we should let our energy have an impact on the people we are speaking with rather than the other way around. Let's be the glow-in-the-dark for those we encounter, rather than waiting for them to glow on us. Then let's do it all over again tomorrow. Small acts of kindness can go a long…

When you walk into a dark room

Due to the power outages, we have been experiencing, it is common to walk into a completely dark room. Visualise yourself entering a pitch-black room from a brightly lit one.

When did my business start failing?

Surrounded by water but still dry

Even though it is the least loved of the three films in the Godfather Trilogy, I still enjoy The Godfather Part III quite a bit. Godfather III is not as popular as The Godfather I and II, but it has some good scenes and nuggets. Whenever Don Michael Corleone goes to a clergyman to make…

Research has shown that poor management practices and a toxic work environment can lead to stress, anxiety, and even depression. On the other hand, a supportive and empathetic manager…

Conscience speaking

“The voice of conscience is so delicate that it is easy to stifle it, but it is also so clear that it is impossible to mistake it.”- Madam de Stael When you know what is right or wrong, you can't deny it. It is like a voice that guides us to do the right thing.…

What a person commits to says little about them

Making a firm commitment is simple. You only need a few works and an occasional signature. However, commitments rarely accomplish much on their own. To recap, recommitment is the cornerstone upon which we construct all the wonderful things we are capable of creating, including but not limited to meaningful relationships, effective businesses, and trustworthy interactions.…
