The Return of MOI

Good day friends,
I am sorry I have been away for a long time......You know how it is now. Lagos wahala. I have been too creepy busy since my dad's death and his burial in January.
But I am fully myself again and creating enough time for this blog and my friends.
Welcome back everyone.

Wednesday 4 November 2015


There are many things that I have tried that did not work. There was a day someone asked me,"Do you people who are successful know what those of us who run small organizations are going through?" I said, "Which part of my story do you want me to begin with? You will be surprised where I started from,and you will be surprised the challenges that I have encountered along the way,but I have stayed on."

So,what are the challenges you have right now? Let me ask first,do you know anyone who has overcome similar challenges before? Have you heard their story? Are you assuming that it was easier for them than it is for you? Maybe it is a wrong assumption. It hardly works so smoothly for everybody.

Anyone who has big dreams is going to attract challenges. Some never realize the potential promotion or increase that comes from overcoming challenges. Great victories come from great battles.

Today,overcome every challenge and join the world of champions.

You are a champion!
You will succeed..

How Successful People Overcome Uncertainty - Dr. Travis Bradberry (contd)

They focus only on what matters
Some decisions can make or break your company. Most just aren’t thatimportant. The people who are the best at making decisions in the face of uncertainty don’t waste their time getting stuck on decisions where the biggest risk is looking foolish in front of their co-workers.


Our brains are hardwired to make much of modern life difficult. This is especially true when it comes to dealing with uncertainty. On the bright side, if you know the right tricks, you can override your brain’s irrational tendencies and handle uncertainty effectively.

The Best of Times

Isn't the world good as it is?
I wonder a lot when many people think or refer to the saying "A fool at forty is a fool forever" because in this 21st century popularly referred to as 'JET AGE' by many there is literally nothing left for a man to achieve at '40' because all better life opportunities and entitlements must have come and gone since he was in his '20's..................no offence but isn't it truthful?...........so I'd say a fool at 25 'which is mid 20s' is a fool forever........ Takia guys see u soon.........

Be Political and Be Savvy - Sable Badaki

This Piece was posted by Sable Badaki; a Global Strategic HR Consultant, Facilitator and Speaker......................
We hear the term “ office politics” and images begin to flood our minds of bickering, backstabbing, and mean co-workers. Is that office politics or is just bickering, backstabbing, and mean co- workers?
Office politics exist in the workplace. Your ability to navigate through the political environment is a skill. Contrary to popular belief, it is not for the evils ones but for the career focused ones. Check your organization’s competency directory, there it is “political savvy”
