Maybe this matters …

If you read my last post, then this should not be a problem for you to follow and understand. I noted three fields that should be in necessary alignment for you to be truly effective. i.e. the hedgehog concept. If you did then you probably gave it some thought at least – or if you are like most people, you abandoned the idea thinking it was to tedious and mentally engaging. OK, I know we live in a new era where speed is of essence, we move too fast for a too slow process like thinking. Read more of this post

Foxes and Hedgehogs

Ever since I came across the concept of personal leadership, one of the most interesting paradigms I have encountered in it is that which is called the Hedgehog concept. it’s a concept based on an essay by famous liberal philosopher, Isaiah Berlin, titled The Hedgehog and the Fox.

Change

Its amazing how easily this topic succeeded in bouncing off other topics from my mind within just a few days of ruminating over it. I was in the process of writing a post about the recent happenings in the murky waters called Nigerian Politics and what I believed about the on goings, when almost suddenly, I had to appear among a few friends to discuss the subject of change.

When optimism fails …

For a long while, I battled with the concept I hope to share with you in this post. It was one of those concepts that everyone I met claimed to have an explanation for. All they did was to confuse me more. I like to call myself a student of the University of Hard knocks, Read more of this post

Value.

Hello all, I have had the most exciting week so far this year. Last weekend was a blast for me. I was involved in three different events, in the three areas that mean a lot to me: Church (Religion), Business and Government. I had three of my mentors around for the programmes and as you might have guessed, it was a great time. several issues were discussed, some deep, some simple enough to be understood by all. Throughout those three days, one word kept ringing in my mind – VALUE.

Chronicles of a real year (2)

This is a sequel to my last post ‘chronicles of a real year (1)’ and even though I was tempted to detail every event about my year here, I really do not think a narrative would do a lot of good in the long run. I will like to share a few things with you again.

Questions contd.

Sequel to my last post ‘Questions’, I have decided like i promised to give a candid opinion which i think would be answers to the questions I raised. Over the past week, I have interacted as usual with a number of people, many of whom I respect and I have come up with some interesting views about the whole situation. Opinions have propped up, and I hope they are answers. I do not claim to be all-knowledgeable enough to give a solution, but I hope that you strongly consider these questions and compare your own opinions with mine. Critique it or support it, cos I stand to be corrected. Read more of this post

Questions

I had already almost concluded on what to write today. It was going to be a solemn post that would just rub on a few aspects. Then I decided to hang out for a while, hearing that a few of my friends were in the neighbourhood, I branched off to see them. Read more of this post
