The Underboss

As the clock ticks closer to 1:00 pm, the room falls silent. Fifty-seven more seconds. There is a palpable sense of panic. All staff members are present, spread out across the room. Desks had been taken out and seats arranged forming a circle specifically for this session. Twiddling thumbs and foot-tapping betrays the poker faces everyone is trying so hard to pull. Nobody has any idea how this is going to play out. We are clearly in uncharted territory. 

BREAKING SHACKLES OF EMPLOYMENT

Quitting employment and breaking shackles of employment

Three days ago, I was standing on the edge of a cliff next to a waterfall.  Moments before a lady and two guys in the expedition group jumped off the cliff without the slightest hesitation. It was now my turn to make the jump. A crowd of more than 50 hikers was watching from the sides in anticipation. Uneasy, silence followed.  Every single flash of the camera pushed my racing heart a notch higher.

The Power of Written Goals

Six months ago I went to this store in town looking for an item that I needed to take my blogging a notch higher. I was flat out broke, so I simply admired the said item, noting down the features, accessories plus costs in my red notebook.

On discovering that I wasn’t going to make a purchase that day, the shop owner got so pissed that he took it back asking me not to waste his precious time. He asked me to only go back when I had enough money to buy it.

Most kids had their fathers teach them how to ride bicycles, play soccer or drive. As a child, my father taughtme how to buy, sell and manage my money before my teens. I have sold second-hand clothes, farm produce, veterinary supplies, and by my 18th birthday, I was overseeing a project with about 10 people working under me. That has got to be the hardest thing I have ever done.
