As i turn 23,there are few life lessons i have learnt,some from friends,family and even strangers from eavesdropping conversations .Nowadays nobody truly trusts anybody ! Everybody has an old flame they’re not done with yet, some of the married people have side pieces,
Love has become lust and right has become wrong,the cheater becomes the cheated one.. Everybody is sleeping around with everybody. We don’t use condoms anymore. We just use each other.We dont remember that there are consquences for all our actions . we just do stuff . As much as life is tough,let us be responsible for our actions and make the best of life choices..#Kaycee.

Toxic Relationships

Let’s get this straight, there’s a very fine line between love and stupidity. Supporting your man when he is going through adversity is love.. working hard and supporting a lazy man with no vision is utter stupidity. Maybe even craziness.I see my friends posting Pinterest quotes about how they are down to earth looking for a man with potential so they can “build together” .. that’s very kick-you-in-the-crotch fantastic but if you are out here hustling and he is at home playing Xbox – Play Station – Candy Crush and swallowing Konyagi with his boys, busy blaming the government .. his haters and the devil for being broke – maifren, you are being played like a drum. There’s a fresh crop of educated foolish women who are so desperately seeking to be loved that they will be picking up cheques at dates, busy buying Units for him to host bashes in his bed sitter and settling for Netflix and Chill because they do not want to come off as materialistic. Do not get me wrong, these women are smart, have nice jobs, work hard to earn a coin but how they pick their men is like Stevie Wonder picks colors.. pathetic. Personally, I like to think that even if you can’t get a job.. be actively hustling .. look for anything (mjengo, academic writing, super market attendants) to do as you work on your big dreams. Any fool and his mother can have a business idea but a real man has a business PLAN. I cannot eat potential. Our fathers were the breed of men who would sell milk in their graduation gowns just to put bread on the table- sell his shoe to get fare to see his girlfriend; that’s what our mums saw and nurtured into great men. If you go out with a guy for 3 dates , time to ask “where do you see yourself in 5 years” and if his answer sounds romantic and disorganized like ” The Lord knows my future .. ” or ” I am hoping to win the Sport Pesa jackpot and invest in my business” or ” Narcos has really inspired me .. ” Cut a nigga off.

PERFECT IMPERFECTIONS.

So Yesterday while i was in a bus heading home I overheard two girls discussing relationships.
Now, before you accuse me of spying, allow me to inform you I do not usually make a habit of listening in on other people’s conversations. Okay, that’s not entirely true. Allow me to rephrase that comment: I don’t always make it a habit.🙄
However, these particular individuals made it their goal to inform the entire bus of their conversation, which therefore made it challenging for me (and everyone else) to ignore them. See? Not just me 😊

The climax of the discussion went something like this:

One of the girls has been dating a guy for a while, but now all they ever do is fight.
When asked by her friend what the arguments are about, the girl answered,
“It’s little things that add up to big things. I’m just now discovering he may not be the person who I thought he was.”

The friend then asked her,
What do you mean?
The girl replied,

I can’t explain it, but I feel as though he’s changed since when we first started dating.
Almost immediately, my interest was triggered. I’m a girl, i loove” Moshene”

Just a few months ago, I was caught uttering the exact same words to my sister Madison in the middle of our sister -Sister conversation

With that being the case, I remained silent and focused on the remainder of the conversation between the friends.

The girl with the boyfriend continued to list all the changes that have occurred in her relationship, along with additional reasons why she no longer felt the man she was dating was “the one”:

He snores. He is not neat, his breath stinks. He occasionally suggests we split the check. He doesn’t immediately text me back. He never wants to hang out with my friends and me.
And my personal favorite:

He doesn’t make close to six figures a year.
In my mind, these weren’t exactly deal breakers. After all, no one is perfect and expecting anything but is merely a recipe for disappointment.

When asked by her friend if the guy treated her well and if she loved him, the girl answered,
I mean, he’s really sweet and attentive and I know he truly cares for me. How could I not?
She added,

But I just don’t think we’re the right fit.

As she uttered the words, it was impossible to ignore the contradiction which came from each syllable. Almost immediately, i lost my interest and transformed into irritation.

When my stop finally arrived, I was beyond relieved when the door opened and I could swiftly make my exit. As I began my usual 15-minute walk home, I suddenly found myself thinking about my own relationship with my current boyfriend.

In the beginning of our dating, life was bliss.

My stomach was constantly filled with butterflies and a broad smile. Every day felt like an adventure, but as time elapsed and our relationship progressed, I found myself questioning whether this individual was right for me.

For one, there was a very big job difference (unstable employment me vs very stable employment for him) and although there were numerous similarities between us, there were also many differences.

For instance, we had contrasting views on marriage. He wants it easy and simple where would visit our parents pay dowry and we were good to move in and start a family. whereas I am so detailed, i want every bit of procedure followed. I want a dowry ceremony” roracio”, wedding(this especially) , honeymoon and all that it came with.
Two, He loves his space, he is an extreme introvert, me on the other side is a girl who loves adventure, outdoor and an extrovert.
It wasn’t until when we spent alot of time together when I discovered the significant role my boyfriend played in my life.

It was during that brief period when I realized how much I truly cared for this person, and how I didn’t want to go through life without him by my side.

You know what, He isn’t perfect. I am not perfect. He can be slightly recluse , weirdly smart, stubborn and occasionally complex. But those are characteristics that shape him into the man I love.

We may have opposing views on specific topics – and sometimes we find ourselves arguing because of them (imagine dating someone who doesn’t like roller-coaster) but that doesn’t make our bond any less special or diminish the way I feel about him.

Perhaps that’s why I found the conversation on the bus so annoying.

Relationships aren’t crafted to be perfect. In fact, it’s within the imperfections where the magic truly lies.

Loving someone – really, truly loving someone – requires a certain amount of compromise and patience.

It’s being able to love them at their worst and stand by them when life becomes difficult. Because if there’s anything I’ve learned from my current relationship, it’s that there won’t always be butterflies and smiles.

There will be times when you want to scream and say things you probably shouldn’t and frustrating moments where you never want to speak to your significant other again.

But at the end of the day, what matters most is your Love, Trust and loyalty to one another.

Only someone who has a true understanding of love will comprehend this. After all, you wouldn’t want to be in a relationship with someone who didn’t completely accept you, so why would you expect anything different from your partner?

Business of the future: digitization and technological disruption is here!!

The world is changing at a faster pace than ever before; which means companies of all kinds must find new and innovative ways to differentiate themselves while maintaining consumer trust in an ever-evolving marketplace. The digital age has presented companies across all industries with both great opportunities and a wide range of challenges and in today’s fast-paced environment, how organizations anticipate and respond to those challenges, and how quickly they do it, will be a key indicator of future success.

Turning a brilliant concept into a monetized product, solution or service requires one other vital ingredient. By far, in a half a decade of experience creating my own solutions and leading co-innovation programs, I’ve found that the most critical factor is communication. Every meaningful element of human progress has happened only because humans have shared ideas with each other and then collaborated to turn those ideas into reality. From the first time our ancestors teamed up to take down a mammoth to Neil Armstrong’s first step onto the moon, people have turned spoken words into astonishing shared achievements.”

Leading organizations in every industry around the globe are in the midst of their digital transformations — whether they are adopting concepts or implementing technologies. But what’s next? It’s safe to say that the most successful companies in the future will be doing things no one is doing today. Think about the four companies that made the headlines in the 1980s: GM, Walmart, Exxon, and Ford. Today, the four companies you hear about are Apple, Amazon, Facebook, and Google. They’re doing today what no one dreamed was possible just a few decades ago. They are leading the way in innovation.

These are wildly exciting times. Advances in technology, a changing demography and democratization are changing both the way we work and the way we view work. From the rise of the gig economy to artificial intelligence and robotics, every company will be affected. The forces of disruption are here to stay, leading companies to rethink how they are organized and how they operate. A solid business model is no longer only about creating shareholder value. Business today is also about integrating a social purpose into your strategy and ensuring it aligns with your company’s culture. So ask yourself, are you ready for the disruption that is upon us?

The world of work is changing as quickly as the world we live in, with the fourth industrial revolution having an unprecedented impact on society.  Artificial intelligence, algorithms, robotics and automation are provoking exponential change. We are in a constant state of transformation, with the only caveat being that neither companies nor people can follow the rate at which technology is evolving. The future of work demands an increasingly strong digital awareness from blue and white collars alike.  Knowledge about digital tools or new business models will become essential to operate in man-machine collaboration or define your company strategy.

By 2030 the last of the baby boomers will have retired, and with an ageing population, we need to start looking across borders to meet all our talent needs. Additionally, to attract talent with the right skills and potential, companies will need to increase their attractiveness to female talent and increase diversity within their board rooms and leadership teams. For many organizations this means taking a critical look at company culture and implementing changes for a more democratic workplace.

These are not distant futures or potential outcomes of theoretical trends. Disruption is already upon us and is turning the world as we know it upside down. In the words of Jack Welsh: “If the rate of change on the outside exceeds the rate of change on the inside, the end is near.” This quote is appropriate for many organizations today. In order to stay relevant you need to be able to explore and exploit opportunities faster than others.

We can’t predict the future, but we’re certain that technology will continue to create an increasing variety of jobs. Artificial intelligence, big data, analytics and robots will replace human workers for repetitive jobs, but they will also create new roles requiring new skills. The skills gap will only grow larger as technology progresses and education struggles to prepare students adequately for the challenges ahead.

Similarly, the rise of the gig economy for highly skilled workers is set to challenge organizations. Because gigging isn’t just for the Deliveroos of the world.  Today, online talent platforms allow you to hire the expertise of a top notch consultant at attractive rates.  This turns the traditional employer-employee relationship on its head.  Going Agile has the power to transform your business by positively impacting time-to-market, employee satisfaction and revenue growth, but requires a different organizational approach.  Ask yourself, are you capable of integrating such highly skilled workers into your team?  Is your company – and your culture – ready to embrace this change?

Over the years, technology has been revolutionizing our world. The emergence of utility devices such as the smartphone and the smartwatch have added a new layer of fun and convenience in our lives. Information is being shared around the world in ways that never existed before. Social media has boomed. Our lives have truly changed thanks to technology. We’re not just experiencing one digital revolution, but rather multiple digital revolutions as developed technologies reach maturity. The first wave was around e-commerce and customer experience. There was a significant shift in IT investment towards managing and maintaining big data to allow for a personalized, omni-channel customer experience.

The second wave is the digitalization of corporate functions to enhance operational efficiency and cost flexibility. Moving IT, communications and infrastructure to the cloud and process automation is now viewed as imperative across all sectors. The next and most transformative wave will be the digitization of supply and operations: Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, block chain, are just some of the technologies that will allow for new productivity gains while creating new services such as autonomous cars and connected cities.

If you want your organization to survive the next 10 years, it is time to throw out the pinstripe suit, and just maybe, try on that pair of torn jeans and a plain t-shirt, under your Armani jacket. Change can be fun. True innovation happens when we experiment and have some fun.
