My mum noticed that we would sit on the fence outside the house and buy anything the “street hawkers” were peddling so that when the day was up, or rarely, week was up we were broke. For some reason I started learning to save my money as I was not sure about our spending. I would then bail out or help others if they needed money.
What I like best was that my mum studied our spending patterns and realised (market research) we were spending on sweets and worked out the type of sweets we bought by asking – survey.
That’s how we began to run a sweet shop in the store of mummy’s kitchen.
But if time was not that important, why do we apologise, get embarrassed , offer explanations and reasons when we are late? Is it because of the inherent need to please, or change how we are perceived?
Use your talent to get ahead, don’t hide it. ( it could end in punishment)
My Daddy says “a man’s gift will make way for him and being him before Great men.” His book also has a story / parable about three men and their talents.
Ever seen how more and more posters advertising a product are using more pictures than text? We take one look at the image and we are painting pictures in our mind of how life would look if we just had a taste, a part or the experience portrayed in colour and glam.
