    It’s ok to be a work in progress

    Life gets to a point where you feel as if things aren’t going the way you had initially wished they would. It is as if what ever work you try to put in goes into vain.

    Peer pressure – Is it still prevalent in current times?

    The concept ‘peer pressure’ has been making waves back then when I was in high school. Unsurprisingly it still is in the current curriculum. Why are we still learning about it? The word peer pressure comes from or rather refers to the influences that our peers have on us that initially we didn’t desire. Having to engage into something merely because your friends are doing so and for the fact that you believe they will reject you or think you aren’t as cool if you don’t… that should be a red flag. Some even go to extreme lengths of ‘removing’ others from the squad because of their ability not to…

    Journals, are they still necessary in current times?

    Remember back in 2006 where we would turn a two quire book into a journal with a get to know me page and little messages. Those were the days, we would even write song lyrics and questionnaires. In the age of digital advancement, we went past those times. But journaling is still a thing. However in a different and productive way. We now call them ‘planners’. They look more advanced and are used to help up be more productive and professional in what we do. I’m not trying to bash anyone, but if you don’t have a planner, maybe try educating yourself on one.

    The viability of education and learning

    I had a very interesting conversation with my learners today. As a teacher I always try to encourage them to study and never stop studying. This is because this world we live in requires one to be educated for them to leap into success. One of them said to me, ‘school and studying isn’t for me, I’m a pretty young man I’ll become a model or actor’. As stunned as I was, I then asked him, ‘you’ll be an uneducated model all your life?’, with all these already successful models and actors who are constantly educating themselves in their industry. In essence what I was trying to explain to them…

    Are you reading enough books?

    One of my 2019 resolutions was to read books like never before. I kept it at a book a month. I must say, if reading isn’t for you, this commitment is a little bit extreme if you’re studying or working, or doing both like I am. However, for myself I’m enjoying it so far. Reading books is essential especially if you want to grow in certain aspects of life. It could be a personal thing or a professional growth strategy. I’m sure you can tell the difference between a person who reads and one who doesn’t. If you haven’t read any book in the last three months, hmm. Maybe try…
