DEAR DIARY

My small library grows daily, and daily I hope and pray one day it will occupy the books I have written. In the mean time, I savor authors and amazing works of art, literature, penned by some of the most gifted minds. Everyone has a teacher in them, so as I learn and teach and learn, I research and spread my mental horizons. Ten Day MBA I am not there yet, still lost in the clouds of the motivational.

PEARL #81: PLAN YOUR LIFE

 

DEAR DIARY, IT’S NOVEMBER 1ST 2014

“FAILING TO PREPARE IS PREPARING TO FAIL…

I used to hear this from Dr Dawkins Derrol, senior Pastor and Pediatrician, Birmingham AL. At the time I was just a student in nursing school, working as a Medical Assistant in his Pediatric practice. I wondered, what did that mean? It wasn’t a stretch of the imagination really, it was simple. Dr Dawkins simply meant, you ought to plan what you want to do, and plan how you will execute it.

For me today, I see that so relevant in everything I do. I have seen how things turn out when I plan, and the outcome when I don’t plan. Now, not everything in life can be written down to the last detail, some things are best spontaneous. However, when it comes to important stuff, like the trajectory of your life, a plan better be in place.

The first day of November, 2014, makes me realize, I have exactly 2 months till the end of this year. So, I am taking stock of what my life has been so far, is there something I can wrap up? Next, start planning for next year. When the new year starts, I should already have an idea what I want my life to look like. Deciding to plan in January, is preparing to be a day late. I want January to start with me already running.

Today I spent time in Barnes & Noble bookstore, looking around for inspiration. The first book I saw walking in is one I have been wanting to read, The Alchemist, wow. Then I looked for the book one of my Coaches and Mentors said I should get, The Ten Day MBA, my eyes fell on Joel Osteen’s book, but I couldn’t possibly get all these in one day. The adrenaline though started to fill my blood, I wanted to remain in the bookstore.

I got a couple of journals, my The Alchemist, pens and paper. Tonight, I will plan the rest of my year and the beginning of a new one.

What about you? What are you planning for next week, next month, next year? Need paper, pen? Then get it, start thinking, all the best to you and me, may our dreams come true.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

ARE YOU A MISTAKE?

The intricacies of the workings of the human body are a marvel to behold.

In my little space in my thoughts, I see in my mind’s eye all the beauty

and complexity of the world my eyes captured all day. It dawns on me, these

are not mistakes, these are carefully created organisms, perfect human beings

in their imperfection. It is clear to me, that God does not make mistakes. So while

we wallow in doubt, self-pity, fear and terror, shouldn’t we wonder, if the Creator

makes everything on purpose, and no one is a mistake, why will He start with me?

This human being who was made out of intention will intentionally desire and create

the world meant for them. Today

PEARL # 79: GO FOR IT

GO FOR IT

The truth is, by the time you finish wondering, pacing around, and thinking about working the courage to do something good for yourself, it will still be the same time on the clock if you had moved. If it is 10 o’clock now where you are, in one hour the clock will strike 11 o’clock, whether you are sleeping, working, daydreaming, or afraid, it will still strike 11 o’clock in that hour. Make your choice, to move or not to move, go for it!
