Napping and Productivity
A general consensus has emerged over the years that people nap not to recover from last night's party, but more often than not to make up for early-morning commutes, long work hours, and too many responsibilities at home. After a little nap, they feel more alert and do a better job. In fact, some American…Continue

But don’t let that stop you. Yes, there will be ridiculously long days with little to no sleep. Yes, you are going to be stressed. But those that want it bad enough will make it.

1. Build your business around what you know.
Instead of venturing off…Continue
A story of self-denial in a World of opportunity.
I used to watch in amazement as friends walked away from great opportunities, because an unknown group called “they”, said they were “bad.” When I asked who “they” were, there was never a definitive answer.
Around the world Governments rise and fall because of “them”. Examinations are difficult because “they” are out to get the students. Families are in conflict because the mysterious “they” intervened. People…Continue

There is more to life than what we can see with our eyes.
A regal young Native American man stood before me and asked me if he could sing to me. Deep within my spirit I felt touched, I was in a place of peace that I had never experienced. Dream people, around us, faded away. It was just he and I, as he began to sing, in that majestic and mystical moment.
The song hung in the air like fragrant and colourful blossoms in the wind. It was strange and yet familiar.…Continue

It seems that working as a public servant no longer holds the prestige it once did. Occupations like teaching and other public sector services have taken a back seat.
Very often the brightest graduates set their sights on joining the biggest corporate companies or worse, opt to leave the country taking their shiny new skills with them.
Why is this happening? where is our sense of civic duty? Or our desire to give back?
There is a lot of…Continue

A short tale on how easy it is to mis-communicate across cultures and languages.
The narrow, dusty roads wound endlessly around the steep sides of the Valley of a 1000 hills.
To my right the magnificent Inanda dam held back the waters of the mighty Umgeni. Behind me the river bounced into the best section of rapids, between Pietermaritzburg, and Durban, Africa’s biggest port. This was a fairly new view of the dam for me. Normally I would have been on…Continue

Trust is the foundation for collaboration and the importance thereof is widely recognised these days,…

Lessons from my journey. When our paradigms change, our vision shifts!
It was 1996 and I was head over heels in love. A love that was only possible in the latter stages of the Apartheid era and the New South Africa. My girlfriend and soul mate was stunningly beautiful, amazing and from a different culture and religion. I was on a delightful and somewhat belated path to a new life with my soon-to-be wife.
Initially, when we went out in public…Continue
