You may not get what you like, but you can like what you've got and put it into good use. What have you?

Day 197 - FaceApp goes viral

The viral thing at the moment is FaceApp. The app that shows you differently from the way that you currently look like. Either shows you younger or older.
My view is this, the past is gone and the future depends on God. You have a part to play though. Take care of your body. Eat well and keep fit and you'll progressively discover how you look in the future.

Day 193 - Your Next Meal

Every single day you plan what you are going to eat. Do you also plan what to feed your mind with?
In my previous video, I spoke of this and I got a lot of feedback in support of the idea. We should plan for our mind food just as careful as we plan for body food.

Day 192 - Food for thought.

When was the last time you had a meal? I believe today you have eaten something. We all make sure to feed the body to keep growing and remain healthy on a daily basis. Do we feed our brain just as well?

Day 191 - Your Past and Your Future

Your past does not determine your future. It is what you do today that will determine where you'll end up tomorrow. 

Day 190 - Do you change at night?

Are you the same person during the day and during the night?

Do you have faith? Do you lose faith at times? The mustard seed has a deeper lesson than we often understand. I speak of this in today's video.


Day 173 - Attend Events

A chat with my friend Stavros reminded us of the importance of attending events.
More on the video.

Day 172 - The Scars

Have you ever been hurt? Have you been broken? Do you have scars?
Most of those people whom you know to be successful have been through all that. Some have scars you could never have imagined until you hear their stories. The fought on until they won.
Hurts and scars should not stop you from going after your dreams. Keep on to the very end until you succeed. 

Day 171 - Mention only that which you want

I've had the experience of saying to someone what I don't want while asking for what I want only to end up getting that which I didn't want. Just because I had mentioned it alongside. This video shows you what happened in the recent incident.

Always mention only that which you want. Never that which you don't. 

Day 170 - Commitment

If you've ever watched a small interested child learn the alphabet, you'll understand what commitment is and the value it adds to you. I just did. Choose to commit to your dreams to the very end and accomplish much.

Day 169 - Own the Market

A market will outlive any stand alone small shop. My opinion is that you should own the market of whatever you are doing. Otherwise be a part of a bigger market. A market lives long. That's my opinion. What is yours?

Day 168 - Say Nothing

Once, a wise man said nothing.
It's not always that we should say all that may be said. Sometimes it pays to just say nothing. It's wise.

Day 167 - Water the Grass

Day 165 - It's beautiful from up there.

Day 164 - Success Steps

Success is like going up a flight of stairs. You take one step after the other every single day. Do not give up along the way. Keep going upto the top.

Day 162 - Avoid Anger

There is a reason why we were created with two ears and just one mouth. That we should always listen more than we talk. That way we'll avoid many of the conflicts we have around us.

Day 161 - What's Your Idea?

Ideas are never exhausted. You can come up with an idea today that can make history. Bill Gates did not invent the computer. He just improved on it.

Day 160 - Choose Your Friends

The issue of your associations is very important to our well being. That's why it should be always be in our minds on a continual basis.

Day 159 - Ask Guidance

We may never know all there is to know on any given subject. Therefore we will be required to ask those with the knowledge. The ones who may have done it before us.

Day 158 - Ready? Catch!

Sometime back this ball boy surprised the crowd with a phenomenal catch.
To the viewer, it was a surprise but to the boy, it wasn't.
He was ready and waiting for it.

I know this guy known as Yash Gupta. He took a challenge where people were to produce one Facebook live ?stream per day.
He always did his at night in the dark. 12midnight and even later. Because during the day he was very busy and in the house people were sleeping. So he would go out in the dark every single day to make his live stream.
Are you that dedicated?

Day 154 - You Can (WD-40)

Success comes in Cans. Not Can't.
Are you familiar with WD-40?

Do you know what WD-40 means?

Make it your ambition never to give up until you succeed.

Thank you all for everything.

Day 151 - The Star that You Are

Have you heard of the saying that when it gets dark, the stars come out?
Well! They don't. The stars are always out, shinning all the time. Even when you don't see them.

Choose to be a star. Shine all the time even when nobody is watching. When it gets dark, the star that you've always been will be revealed.

Day 150 - A Seed of Greatness

You have within you a seed of greatness. We may not see it and those who see it may not acknowledge it. Because from the outside a seed does not indicate any life. When the right time comes, the seed will germinate and your greatness will be evident.

Day 149 - Open Mouth Experiment

If you shake an unopened bottle of Coca Cola and open it immediately, a good volume of the drink will pour out messing whatever is near.

We operate the same way, if greatly angered and you speak so soon, your words would cause a big mess.
Learn to bottle up your anger. After some time, the emotion would go out and you'll speak good words where there could have been a disaster.


Day 148 - Find The Light

If you place a plant in a dark room with just a single source of light, you'll discover that the plant will always grow towards the light.
If in life you find yourself in a dark place, look for a light for there is always one, and grow towards it.

Day 147 - Memorial Day Message

Today is Memorial day in the US. The day Americans remember soldiers who died in war.
It's a good time to reflect about life.
One day we'll be gone. Someone will remember us.
Will they say that we were good soldiers and that we fought this life's war with all our might sacrificing for a good cause. Will we leave a good memory?


Day 146 - Sunday Best

As I was growing up, we used to have a Sunday Best suit. A suit we'd only use on Sunday.
I have come to see many people who are only their best on Sunday only. Let that not be you. Be your best self every single day.

Day 145 - The Journey must continue.

Yesterday I came to a dead end on a road I was taking to some place.
That did not mean I end the journey there. It meant I look for another way through to  m destinaton. That's how it is with life. On the road to your dreams, you may come to some dead end. That though does not mean you forget your dreams. It means you look for another way through.

Day 144 - The words of your mouth

The words that you speak on a daily basis affect the outcomes in your life. To change several situations that you find yourself in, all you need could just be a few right words at the right time to the right person.

Day 143 - Finding Your Happiness

I asked people on my Facebook profile what makes them happy.
The overall response indicated that it's not the big things that we always look upto in life. It's rather the little everyday things. Those that we often take for granted. For example, just the fact that one woke up is enough to keep you happy all day.
And it all starts from an attitude of gratitude. Appreciating everything in life.

Day 142 - Your Roots

On the subject of mobility, you can teach a tree a lesson or two.
On the subject of stability, the tree can teach you a lesson.
It is stable and firm because it has roots.

Day 141 - Better late than never.

I promised a while back to be doing a daily video. I have consistently done so
 Today however I was late in uploading. But I did it anyway.
If there is something you ever promised to do, always do it. Do it on time. But if ever late, never use lateness as an excuse not to do it. Just do it.

Day 140 - Google Assistant - Happy Birthday

Today was testing the new Google Assistant App.

I decided to ask it when my birthday is.
The answer is in the video.

You'll love it.

Day 139 - Ask, Seek and Knock

If you never ask, the answer will always be no.
Finding is only for the seekers.
Doors are awaiting for you to knock. They will be opened.

Did you find a great thing that you wouldn't have found if you had never Searched?

Have you had great doors open for you just because you Knocked?

Let us hear your story.

Day 138 - Is the glass half full or half empty?

A pessimist looks at a glass of water and says it's half empty.

A tree stays in the same place all the days of it's life.
For you it's different. You can move. You can change your position and situations.

Because you can and because you have The equipment necessary to do so.

Day 135 - Are People Speaking About You?

People will always talk about you as long as you are doing something.

If they they are speaking about your good, wonderful to you. Keep it up.
If they are speaking about your bad, then live right and prove them wrong.

It's a time that reminds me that good times will always come. Hence when am not in a favourable time, I recall Springtime. 

Day 130 - Little things that matter

I don't have everything that I want to have. I guess you also have some things that you are missing.
Sometimes we are tempted to worry about the things that we don't have, forgetting the things that we already have. We should however remember to be thankful for every little thing that we have. Some of those that we disregard in us but someone else could be dying to have. A blind man would give all he has to be able to read this text that you are now reading with ease.
Give thanks for sight. And for every other little thing.

Day 129 - The ideal conditions

When shooting today's video, I found myself not in my usual comfortable location, it was not the right time, I was not perfectly prepared.
With all the imperfections, I still did it anyway. Because I had to do it.
Are you waiting for the perfect conditions so that you can pursue your dreams?
Those conditions are not promised. You better do it now. Go for it anyway.

Day 128 - Meat too tough?

I like cooking. Being in the kitchen is fun. I love it.
However recently, I noted with concern that all the meat I've been buying has become too tough to cut.
Today however I sharpened my knife only to discover that, it's not the meat that has been tough. It's my knife that has been blunt.
This too can apply in anything in life that you are doing. Could it be that it's not what you do that has become difficult, rather it's how you do it and the tools that you use that could be the problem. Find out and sharpen your knife.
Maybe the knife is the skills you use to do the job. Sharpen those skills and your job will become effortless and give you better and quicker results.
Wishing you all the best.

Day 127 - The Black Dot

A teacher gave each of his students a white paper with a black dot in the middle. He asked them to describe what they saw. Each of them talked about the black dot. None talked about the white paper.
Could it be that we only see the little bad and forget all about the much good? Make it your ambition from today to see the greater positive part of life.

Day 126 - Are you at the right bus stop?

Be one who is excited to give.

Day 124 - Build your life one brick at a time

For a big building to be built, it starts from an idea. The idea is then put onto paper. Every single detail. Then it is built one brick at a time.

Day 123 - What do you notice first?

Take good care of that which represents you. If anything goes bad, make sure to correct as soon as you can for a good representation of you.

Day 122 - Fulfill Your Vision.

Many people use excuses as to why they are unable to fulfill their vision. One of the excuses is that they are not in the right position in an organisation. However as John Maxwell would say, the courage to fulfill your vision does not come from your position, it comes from your passion.
Check your passion level and go fulfill your vision now. Don't wait for the position.

It is out of frustration that Virgin Atlantic Airlines was born. We can learn to turn our disappointments into opportunities. That was the perspective of Richard.

You've got just one life.

You don't have forever on this planet. Do what you have to do when you should, before it becomes too late for you.

How I found a job (2)

I took art in college. After college, I lived a good number of years on art alone. But that was in Kenya. I even had people work for me.

How I found a job.


Recently, I have seen a lot of people ask how to find a job. Even though I personally have an entrepreneurial mindset, and I encourage entrepreneurship to as many as I get to, I have found myself time and again on both sides of the equation. I have been an employer and several times the employee. Therefore I have some experience in each area. I also understand that not all people can be employers. Some have to be employees for balance of nature.

It is not the critic who counts


It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

What do you sell?


Sometimes back, I used to be a signwriter in Githurai. So today I was excited when I came across this signwriter in Marousi. I said a few words to him though he was so immersed in his work. It got me flashing back on how we used to work and I thought much about life in general and the application of some principles learnt from that period in time.

Happy New Year 2019


Hope you had a great year.
As we begin this new one, I am wishing you great and wonderful things.
