Choose Your Zombie-Slaying Apocalypse Team Well

I’d choose the folks who are teachers – not necessarily by profession but by character trait. Teachers, the real ones, are willing to learn and adapt as much as they are willing to lead and teach. I learned somewhere once that the greatest leaders know how to step aside and follow. They know how to take instructions and follow accordingly. Leading and being a leader is much more than delegating and parading around with a title.

The Inevitability of Death

Life is cyclical and where there is life, death lingers. Like a withering tree in the desert or the end of a season, people’s physical presence on earth ceases to exist because they’ve done their laps. They’ve weathered many storms, seen many a sunrise and sunsets. Then one day, their waking and going will just stop because their time has come.

An Ode to 12

Making an ass of “u” and “me”

We fail to forget that people carry the weight of their world on their backs without people knowing. Right? There’s a meme I see quite often that says something like: “people carry their load and baggage well – well enough for you to not know what’s really going on.”

If you commit to something, follow through!

Following through on your commitments and promises adds character to your reputation. It tells the world that you get shit done. It tells the world that you are reliable and dependable. It means that your business dealings will have a greater chance of flourishing. It means that you’re serious about keeping your word. It means that you will hold yourself and other persons accountable.

Where you’re weak, others are strong | Where you’re strong, others are weak

We all have our fallen moments-weak moments- can’t do much for ourselves moments. However, in those moments, there will be at least one person who can help to carry you along in the best way they can. Importantly,  the roles will reverse at some point. That’s just the way life works. When that happens and the opportunity to pay it forward shows up, pay it forward.

People will judge you no matter what decision you make

Everyone has an opinion. Some will use their opinion to help guide you, support you and cheer you on. Others will give their opinions with ill will in their hearts and minds. It’s kinda hard to maneuver but you have to figure it out somehow.

Present your best self 

This version of yourself could only be 10% on a given day if that’s all can do – that’s okay.

Give the best of that 10%. However, work towards improving on it to get to 100%.
