Yes, you heard me. It is possible to legally steal other people’s time with their permission with no negative backlash on their productivity.

Each of us has 24 hours a day, right? With different tasks and deadlines to meet, yes.

MAKE THAT SALES PITCH LOUDER!

#𝐁𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐌𝐨𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐲: Today is Monday and these are business lessons from Mr. Bartimaeus’ transaction with the CEO, Jesus Christ.

1. 𝑩𝒂𝒓𝒕𝒊𝒎𝒂𝒆𝒖𝒔 𝒉𝒆𝒂𝒓𝒅 𝑱𝒆𝒔𝒖𝒔 𝒘𝒂𝒔 𝒑𝒂𝒔𝒔𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒃𝒚.

Jesus went about doing good. Bartholomew must have heard that. And when Jesus passed by, he heard that too. So, he made his pitch. That business of us, someone needs to hear you.

2. 𝑯𝒆 𝒉𝒂𝒅 𝒂 𝒔𝒂𝒍𝒆𝒔 𝒑𝒊𝒕𝒄𝒉.

“𝐽𝑒𝑠𝑢𝑠! 𝑆𝑜𝑛 𝑜𝑓 𝐷𝑎𝑣𝑖𝑑! 𝐻𝑎𝑣𝑒 𝑚𝑒𝑟𝑐𝑦 𝑜𝑛 𝑚𝑒!” What better pitch than to acknowledge Jesus’ earthly lineage to a great patriarch tied to his divine assignment? It caught Jesus’ attention.

So, I have decided to bring it here, in case you also need it.

Like I said, these apps are necessary for the optimal use of your mobile and working experience. However, please take, ‘necessary’ as relative. You probably do not need all the apps; just the ones that apply to you. Let’s get into it already, shall we?

“𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑵𝒊𝒈𝒆𝒓𝒊𝒂𝒏 𝒔𝒄𝒉𝒐𝒐𝒍𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒔𝒚𝒔𝒕𝒆𝒎 𝒊𝒔 𝒏𝒐𝒕 𝒔𝒆𝒕 𝒇𝒐𝒓 𝒂𝒏 𝒂𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒂𝒈𝒆 𝑵𝒊𝒈𝒆𝒓𝒊𝒂𝒏 𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒕𝒉 𝒕𝒐 𝒍𝒆𝒂𝒓𝒏 𝒃𝒖𝒕 𝒕𝒐 𝒑𝒂𝒔𝒔.”

Learning English Language in OAU and teaching secondary school students for many years after, I had to read again to be able to teach them productively. Mind you, the textbooks I read were not the ones I used in school. Happens to the best of us.

We learnt very quickly, what we were taught within the four walls of the classroom are only 30% applicable in real world scenarios. 𝑭𝒐𝒓 𝒘𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒊𝒕’𝒔 𝒘𝒐𝒓𝒕𝒉, 𝒔𝒄𝒉𝒐𝒐𝒍𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒘𝒂𝒔 𝒆𝒔𝒔𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒊𝒂𝒍 𝒇𝒐𝒓 𝒊𝒏𝒇𝒐𝒓𝒎𝒆𝒅 𝒆𝒙𝒑𝒐𝒔𝒖𝒓𝒆. Thus, what you were exposed to outside of class but still within the schooling environment informed your life and career choices.

Here are the things they do not teach in school, but you will need in life.
