Little girl with good foundations

DO NOT TOY WITH YOUR FOUNDATIONS!

If my continued sojourn out of Nigeria has taught me anything, it is the value of primary education.

Here, thinking patterns we’re expected to draw on in solving tasks and answering questions are from teaching styles and learning process ingrained in us from kindergarten.

I mean, the focus is not so much on the task or knowledge itself, but how you do it, how you approach it, the right learning mind, a partnership mentality and so on.

CONSISTENCY IS OVERRATED?!

Consistency is overrated?!
 
Do you believe that?! Good!  Next thing you would need to believe is this,
 
You are misguided!

“Can I know you more?”

YOU DESERVE A DO-OVER. TRY AGAIN!

90% of the time when you lose a phone, a laptop or an important gadget at home, your next line of thought is, “How do I replace it?” After this, you begin to work out a course of action; whether to save more, pull out of your savings, ask someone for help, plan on your next income and so on. Only very few of the time do you not think of replacing them.

For gadgets and tools, fair enough. However, if I were to bring friends and people into the equation, the percentage reduces. It’s safe to say that less than 50% of the time when you lose a friend, you don’t always think of replacing them. One, because they cannot be replaced – everyone is unique in who they are and the hole they fill.
