Happy New Year and January 2020 Sessions

Happy New Year, You!

Great to see you made it to 2020!!! Thanks for stopping by especially since I know you’re mighty busy this start of the year.

All around the world , New Year resolutions are being tweaked, Plans are being worked out and parents are getting ready to send their kids back to school. Amidst all of these are the mild threats of war between the US and Iran and England’s Prince Harry and his young family, breaking the status quo with news of their impending departure to Canada. Shall we think of the gas explosion that killed some people in Kaduna here in Nigeria, just a few days ago or Boko Haram’s rather ungentle reminder in the North East , also days back?

No, my aim is not to give you world news in a few sentences. It is basically to pin point these things you probably know of but are not very conscious about or aware of . That is :

  1. There will be unrests, confusion and bad news over the next year. Over the next decade, it will get worse. How you handle your emotional health and reactions to and amidst them all is key.
  1. Changes are bound to happen but having a plan you can tweak to fit the times will put you well ahead of the game. Remember, your goal should be well formed but the strategies to achieve them should be fluid. Thoughts like this have kept Coca Cola strong through decades of wars and economic hardships.
  2. Know yourself and true desires and actively go after them independent of what people think. You only have yourself to answer to on your death bed. So when you plan for your life , plan to die empty with no regrets. Gosh , that has got to be the worst thing ever.

But here is the good news…

With my journaling class, you get to re-access long forgotten dreams because I will haunt it out of you…hahaha. Seriously though. We will dig stuff up and you yourself will start to remember long forgotten dreams. Then you will put your plan in motion- I will guide you with a series of questions, materials, prompts and then you will write you plans down. You see, we are not planning for 2020 or 2030 alone. Together, we will plan for a life time.

So help us God.😊

Repost: How one woman is using Google Maps Platform to transform the trucking industry

For Chiamaka Nwosu, Google Maps Platform is about more than tracking cargo in Africa. It’s about making a lasting mark on the world through the power of technology.

Chiamaka Nwosu still remembers the day her father brought home a computer. She had always been fascinated by how things worked, tinkering with everything from toys to the family generator. To 10-year-old Chiamaka, the computer posed an opportunity — a mystery, which, once understood, could unlock remarkable possibilities in the world around her.

Chiamaka channeled her fascination with tech into the classroom. She became one of only 12 women to study computer science in her university class of 110 and, after years of hard work, was awarded a prestigious scholarship to an incubator program in Ghana at the Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology. It was there that she set her sights on solving a real world problem. Read the rest of Chiamaka’s story here.
