Today, I am a year older. I thank God for bringing me thus far. I have learnt a lot of things and the more I learn, I find out I am yet to scratch the surface of endless opportunities that abound for me. I’ve had some wins and some losses, I have had some highs and some lows and to be honest, it has seemed like I should have given up a whole lot of times but then I have learnt to keep on holding on through it all. Let me share some of the things I learnt and still learning and some of the things I have learnt from some people I look up to:

  1. To take corrections and take responsibility for my choices (although this is an everyday process and not one-off)
  2. Life comes at you fast sometimes and you cannot fully prepare for it in some cases.
  3. Stretch myself beyond myself.
  4. Value and nurture relationships.
  5. Don’t allow your focus for the future make you fail to enjoy the moment.
  6. Develop your skill. It may come in handy someday.
  7. Listen! Listen!! Listen!!!
  8. Separate emotions from work. Never allow it cloud your judgment.
  9. Put in your best wherever you find yourself.
  10. GOD is always there no matter how far He seems.

These and many more have I learned, and I pray to keep on learning for the day a man stops learning, he starts dying for there is nothing more for him to offer again. I hope not to be that man in my new year and the years to come.
