Hey!

This week has been really stressful. I just returned from a round trip local training course. Well, although i LOVE to travel . . . (to think that i once envied air hostesses 😛 ), being on 5 travel routes in 5 days was a little tiring, i guess i was burnt out, coupled with the coursework and to cap it all up, i had a bit of food poisoning at one of my locations (but i’m ok now. . . thanks for caring 😀 ). Well, some good things also happened during the week, Continue reading

Finally Z, the last letter of the English alphabets. pronounced zee or zed. It usually connotes the end, the finish line.So i ask myself, what have i learnt during this 26-Alphabets article writing? a lot, i must say…. but I’ll just state a few:

Y is for Yesterday

Posted in Personal stories on July 13, 2008 by folayemianifowoshe

Yesterday was a very good day for me.

It was the end of a week long training which was organized by my office. It was all about team building, understanding oneself and others. It was also about seeing the cup both half-full and half-empty at the same time and making effective decisions. Although it was a little stressful cos of the time we closed on some of the days, everyone had fun. What made the whole package fun was that everyone put his/her heart into it. The facilitators (White-British) who came in from the UK were open and honest and the participants (about 26 of us) were actively involved. Continue reading

Hmm!..The X factor…

As i began to type my post on X, i thought to myself…”What do i write on?“….X-treme, X-files, X-men..(lol)…and then i thought deeper…and POW! ..the X-factor was born…:P

Over the years, the letter “X” has been used to connote a mysterious character or item. even in mathematics, way back in primary school…most of the time, it was (2 + x= 7, find x).

What really is the X-factor? Continue reading

Wow!

Wednesday ! I know i keep apologizing for not posting regularly, but today has actually been my major reason for not posting.

I had been trying to arrange a demonstration day for all my farmers, which took place today. I had to visit about 30 communities to visit farmers, their farms, ask questions and select my demonstration farmers….. I lost a few pounds, but i ain’t complaining..cos my waist line was becoming intimidating…lol..:P Continue reading

V is for Value

Posted in Personal stories on June 2, 2008 by folayemianifowoshe

What value do i place on myself? How do i measure myself? Is it by my words? thoughts? acceptance from others? What? How? Do i measure my value by the number of people that like me? or those that hate me? 😀 …..Value? Is it a function of the amount of money that i have? or the material possessions that i control? Continue reading

U is for Underestimation

Posted in Food for thought, Philosophy, Political, your views on May 24, 2008 by folayemianifowoshe

One thing i do from time to time, is to proactively seek feedback on my strengths and weaknesses from people that i respect. I was with a mentor a while back and i asked for his opinion. His response to me was shocking and yet very thought-provoking. He looked me, straight in the eye, and said, ” One major weakness i think you should work on is this Continue reading
