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.
I’m learning to understand the worth of my writings these days in shares (especially) and comments. As much as I love & appreciate the reactions, the shares and comments take more effort and are pointers to how much value the reader held it, enough to read and comment and ultimately, share. That, I believe, is where the real influence is.
To do this, I have realized that the writings where I expressly gave the permission to share after reading has resulted in more sharing. Even as the writings may be powerful, there’s an action I intentionally try to elicit from my readers after reading.
I was in a program yesternight, where the preacher said only God is worthy of our fear. He said to remind us that when we fear God, he takes care of us not just because he can, but because he loves us.
So, I was thinking, many people actually can take care of us. In fact, things that are around us can take care of us. When you have money, it will take of things for you, thereby taking care of you.
Families and friends who have you in mind can take care of you, especially those ones who actually care. You know, they have a less to you, could easily arrange for some comfort for you, go out of their way to give you favours and all. Yeah, that’s what I’m talbout (that means ‘talking about’ in case you don’t know).
