Speed of Implementation

As long as we are alive and active we always have a goal which drives a plan that result into action.
However, many times we like to keep plotting and planning to avoid the actual action.
Other times, for the sheer fact that we want to plan into perfection, we don't carry out the action.
But what is more important about fulfilling a goal? The speed of implementation.
Every time we set out to do something, even when we haven't fully figured it out, starting helps to shape the plans.

Also, not to sound morbid but it is quite important to think of our mortality as a reason why action is crucial. Everyone will die, some earlier than others. Health is not the only reason, accidents happen and nowadays, there are countless terrorist activities that can take anyone's life at any time. If we meditate of the fact that our death is imminent, we should understand that action equals power action equals legacy.

I believe the speed of implementation is a lot more important than days and hours of plotting because one day, the only way to be remembered and the only thing left of us is not our dreams and goals and plans. It is what we have started or completed and the positive marks we have left on the sands of time. From travelling, to taking care of our loved ones, to starting a new project or starting a business, the results of all our dreams will come from our actions.

Hot Blooded Bull

When I met you I was cold
I'm from a place where feelings are shrooms,
I have been melancholic through my voyage. 
Hot blooded bull on a rebellious streak 
If you cut me open its wires inside
Palm sweating on winter days. 
Can you not see my fangs? 

When I met you I was cold 
I saw an arrogant exported African child 
The type that lost our values to civilization 
Or was never educated of it
Confident urban chic
Easy on the eyes but I only search deep 
Mama taught me look for the inner virtues
So I paid no mind paid no attention

Then I met you and found my friend
I knew you and found my soulmate 
You opened my eyes to humanity
To innocent love without blemish
We became one force we became a solace 
We are complete in each other and alone by not together

We found our laughs it's pleasant
We shared our fears, our nakedness
We found a hiding place the rooftop
We found our song soulful
We wrote our language ding dong
We found silent conversations and sharing of the soul

Let's sit on the rooftop at 2am and talk about life
We overcame obstacles people are jealous
A moment feels like a lifetime 
Lifetime seem to be not enough
Each day minute and every passing time 
Becomes a renewed moment of new discoveries
And deep affections from the heart
When I met you I was cold
Now our shrooms turned to ecstasy

One of the best lessons I learnt as a young adult is that
Nobody owes me anything.
After I finished Uni and started job-hunting,
I was hoping someone would recognize all my hard work and good grades
Looking back, that sense of entitlement was not a good place to be.
The day I realized that my success and failures are all up to me
That was the day I became liberated from resentments and rejections

I am currently reading "The Lessons of History" by Will and Ariel Durant
And the highlight of the book for me is that 
Life is Competition 


"There is no true equality, “Nature loves difference as the necessary material of selection and evolution"

“Competition is not only the life of trade, it is the trade of life— peaceful when food abounds, violent when the mouths outrun the food. Animals eat one another without qualm; civilized men consume one another by due process of law.”

“We are acquisitive, greedy, and pugnacious because our blood remembers millenniums through which our forebears had to chase and fight and kill in order to survive, and had to eat to their gastric capacity for fear they should not soon capture another feast.”

Self Awareness

The self is an important phenomenon. It is 100 percent your purpose.
With the influx of social media and information overload,
A lot of people want to be something or someone they are not.
This is a dangerous path without the context of realizing who you already are.
Everything you need to be successful is already a part of who you are.
The reward to self-awareness comes from hard work in harnessing who you are
There is no reward in working hard to be something or someone you aren't
Just because you can identify with a narrative does not mean that's who you are.

Action Points

Spend less time on social media and more time alone
Dwell on your own thoughts and less on what people think of you
Take a pen and paper. Write down these questions.
Who am I?
Why am I here?

Ask at least five (5) people that are closest to you

What do you think I like?
What do you think I'm good at?

Until we answer these questions, we are not on the path to figuring the self out.

I don't have the answers. I'm just a brother on the journey.
