Time is usually an important ingredient… every single time

Time is usually an important ingredient… every single time

Man’s limited time is probably his greatest flaw.

People want to get so much done in so little time. Most times, it does not work out. Some things just take time and we have to learn to embrace it.

When I was younger, I was always in a hurry… I had so many ideas and I was not ready to bury them and so, I simply built them as fast as I could and push hard for a few weeks, even months and then when it is not moving as fast as I want it, I zoom off.

I could never see myself investing a lot of time in a small project.

As I have grow wiser now, I see my folly in reverse.

Things take time to make sense.

In 2017, I have decided to patiently grow my training and empowerment network, evolving a little bit more each day and I am content with whatever comes out of it – no matter how little.

You might be able to learn a bit from this: some things take time. You need to give some projects time for them to enter their maturity.

We cannot fast forward everything.

There are critical life lessons you cannot learn in a hurry. You will have to calm down and really learn how things work.

Reading through the Physics textbook in a single day or week does not mean you have mastered the content and should be handed a Ph. D in Physics, does it?

If Aliko Dangote gave you every single book he read and you finished reading them within 2 -3 weeks, does that make you a seasoned entrepreneur? Definitely not.

Strap in for the long haul and settle down…. these things will take a while before it begins to make sense.

The sooner you embrace this mindset, the better.
