Hope the year has taken off in full swing at your end. My heart goes out to the good people of Australia, may the hand of nature deal a friendlier turn with you even at this time.
There been so much anticipation about the arrival of the year of our Lord 2020. Some spent the last hours of 2019 making resolutions for 2020, I have my reservations about that though. New year resolutions, do you have any?
New year resolutions, do you have any?
Personally, I am not given to making new year resolutions. I prefer to just stick to my long term goals and modify them as the need arises. Feel free to share.
Tuesday morning started off good, I headed for StarFM to produce Moments With Taikins with Taiye Akinpelu. I had been on the trail of her guest, Joko Okupe, of Mindshift Advocacy from the night before. I made sure I got to the studio ahead of him. He arrived in the company of Adebo Onabowale, another great mind from Mindshift Advocacy. The topic of discussion was “Gathering momentum in the new year”. Joko made us understand that to gather momentum, you must have a goal. The chat with Joko and Adebo gave so much insight into getting it right in the new decade. The coming weeks will see some of the businesses and strategies unfold and I might just be sharing them with you right here.
I had Femi Odukoya at the center of my plans for the day, I was scheduled to feature on his program Brands and Consumers; it also turns out that Femi and Adebisi “Konga” Adewusi were celebrating their birthdays. On Brands and Consumers we discussed why Brands throw their weights behind events by way of sponsorship. The holidays was fraught with festivals and concerts of all sorts and they were heavily sponsored by different corporate bodies. We closed with the poser “why do brands support concerts?”.
We had all the fun and I decided to stop over at Jide’s place before heading home. Jide is a childhood friend who recently moved to my estate. Being acquainted with his apartment, I didn’t have much of a problem heading to his flat. We had spoken earlier and I told him I would drop his tool box unfailingly. Tool box in my right hand, I attempted knocking but the loud voices behind the door stopped me in my tracks. “You must pick up one of the bills!” I heard Jide yell. “Never!” his wife retorted.
The exchange continued until I was able to knock the door. Funnily, despite the yelling, the couple were sat looking as calm as ever. I intervened and cited how the game goes in my family. I was lucky that what seemed a domestic violence about to happen was just a domestic argument.

Let us to practice the art of listening and communicating more, as most issues will be resolved without resorting to violence.
Well, it is the new and acts of kindness just got cooler. Endeavor to make someone smile at every given opportunity.
