Happy New Year to all reading this. Hope you had an amazing December and are on track for a tremendous January 2018?. Mine was a hectic one, but fruitful as well.

DECEMBER 2017 STATEMENT – Year 6, Month 7

It’s a free market, not a free world. FORESIGHT In astronomy, a binary system occurs when the orbits of two stars are linked because of their gravitational interaction. In humans, it’s the notion of foresight and formlessness. One of the effects is pure and clean regret. Last month, Jay Patil emphasized how Blockbuster refused to…

NOVEMBER 2017 STATEMENT – Year 6, Month 6

“When you are thirsty, it is too late to think about digging a well.” – Japanese Proverb During the industrial revolution, an entrepreneur solved problems of consumption.

OCTOBER 2017 STATEMENT – Year 6, Month 5

The Bergofsky Principle states that if a computer tried enough keys, it was mathematically guaranteed to find the right one. Dan Brown states in his book Digital Fortress that all security codes are breakable if you have the right equipment. Even when mutating strings are used to write rotating codes. I am not sure if…

SEPTEMBER 2017 STATEMENT – Year 6, Month 4

Assumptions kill more relationships than anything else. It is well-known by most that attraction is what you see, infatuation what you feel but real love is what you know. This is the reason real love and particularly any lasting relationship has no assumptions, only facts. Problems that are ignored and look like they will go…

AUGUST 2017 STATEMENT, Year 6, Month 3

The byelaya smert was a failure free technique invented by the Russian mafias where snow would be put into the mouth of a person thereby suffocating before it melts.

JULY 2017 STATEMENT, Year 6, Month 2

JUNE 2017 STATEMENT, Year 6, Month 1

Some people are like caterpillars. Suddenly, they change and then they begin to fly. Other people are like chameleons. They keep changing, but they keep crawling. Aaron Ahikiriza said these words years ago but they still apply today. Which reminds of a read I enjoyed a few days ago from Tourism Uganda about worth sharing….

MAY 2017 STATEMENT, Year 5, Month 12

Last month, I got a particularly powerful message from Arise Arizechi about why it’s important to take care of your dreams and goals like a hen takes care of its eggs. I felt this read is relevant enough to be this month’s statement. We learn in this reading why it’s always too late to dig…

APRIL 2017 STATEMENT, Year 5, Month 11

Robert Greene has been the most unpredictable author I have read. Always Manoeuvring to different unexpected strategic dimensions. I have learnt a lot from him, so much that an entire month’s statement will revolve around a story from one of his books entitled, ‘The concise 33 strategies of war’. The story unfolds; Warrior or Shopkeeper?…

MARCH 2017 STATEMENT, Year 5, Month 10

There is an old Greek quote; ‘Αλλοι τα γένια πεθυμούν, κι άλλοι που τα ‘χουνε τα φτυούν.’ Which means that much as some individuals wish they had a beard, the ones that do, are spitting on it. The young wish to be old, and the old wish to be young again. As for me, I…

Happy New Month and presume you went through your August 2016 peacefully.

AUGUST 2016 MONTHLY STATEMENT SERIES, Year 5, Month 3

The problems ahead of us are never as great as the power behind us. We have capacity to influence direction in whatever capacity we so desire. This story below that I read last month gives more insight in this regard. “When a poor, skinny black boy announced that he wanted to be the President of…

JULY 2016 MONTHLY STATEMENT SERIES, Year 5, Month 2

If humans evolved from Monkeys and Chimpanzees, why do they still exist? The monkeys would all be humans now. This goes a long way to explain what I once read regarding how science and religion are not at odds. Science is simply too young to understand. In further discussions with a prominent friend last month,…

MAY 2016 MONTHLY STATEMENT SERIES, Year 4, Month 12

This month, I write about the dynamics of marriage. Sometime back, I had to leave a relationship not because I didn’t love but because priorities weren’t set straight. A marriage or relationship between a man and woman is not as complicated as is perceived to be. It is if you don’t understand what I am…
