FORGIVE YOURSELF; GROW

In the journey of life, we fall so many times. That is what humans do, humans fall. There are humans who have made falling look so cool--this reminds me of DJ Khaled. "I have fallen so many times. When I fall, it is as if I am flying."

You messed up yesterday, you messed up today, you will mess up tomorrow. Do you know what matters? What you do after you have fallen. Do you stay down or get right back up using what fell you down as a crutch?

I met a friend--not like me to have a friend cos I get to mess it up soon enough. May be that is the reason why I have been on my own all my life with only short moments of friendship with some I will call acquittances. This friendship lasted more than a year and made me a better person in the process. Let me share some of the lessons I learnt by meeting this friend.

Lessons I leant from my 1+ yrs friend

1. Sacrifice: Sacrifice is required in friendship. You don't offer to do something for someone only when you have the time, space of fund. At times you go all the way for them even when it is not convenient for you. That is the meaning of sacrifice.

If you have a friend, but you have not been sacrificing, you are doing it all wrong. Time to do a reality check and fix up.

2. Loyalty: There are things you need to keep between the two of you. If you can't be loyal to your friend, then don't even start the friendship. If they confide it you, do not break it by telling it to someone else--not even your wife if you are married.

3. Humility: Pull off the ego. The feeling of self importance is not bad, but if you feel you are the best in the pack and you can treat every other person like a pack of rubbish, then you have failed.

4. Office Nuance & effective management styles: Treat colleagues as colleagues and not as friends or blood. Keep is formal, but be nice and kind. There is a difference between being a friend and being kind and nice. You can be kind and nice to someone and they are not your friend.

Keep work relationship for what they are, keep it formal and civil. You don't want to lose track of the primary reason while you are in the office. No office romance.

5. When to say good bye: Some battles you win and some you lose. When it is obvious it is not working, count the loses and say good bye. Good byes are not fun, but some are necessary evil.

This friendship made me grow. The good bye will make me taller.

Good bye

TECNO pulls in celebrities to the launch of new HiOS and TECNO BOOM J8

Some of the artists that were at the TECNO BOOM J8 launch had laudable things to day about the BOOM J8--I know that I saw WeirdMC with the BOOM J7.

Who were the other celebs that were there?
