Each day of this past week did not pass without the feel of “is my head still on?” And I came to realise that there are heads and there are heads. Or better put, there are brains and there are brains. Little wonder why some people greatly excel and it seem some are struggling it out, while some cannot even raise their heads. I summarized, it is the extent of the engagement of our brains.
Knowledge is wider than our existence, so Learning is unending and must be deliberate. I paused and thought; what ever informed us that going to the conventional schools is what learning is all about? Are you kidding me! That must be a great lie from the pit of hell (grinned). Right now, my colleagues and I think it is even a waste of time especially in this part of the world. And when they say “knowledge is power,” I bet you it can never be overemphasized. When it is well appropriated, the result is massive, money will just be catching up. Acquiring it is one thing, appropriating it is another.
Time, uhmm I understand well now when they say “time is money.” Beyond the literal meaning, it explains that time is more valuable, than we tend to act on it. And I have waste a whole lot of it, I wished I could get those years back. I know better now and still in pursue of more knowledge. What I preach to young people had a new twist, especially when I see them whiling away their time with frivolities they esteem important, at least I have a story to tell because I have been there before.
Back to this brain thing, I felt so terrible, sweating under air conditional with some daring headache, after a session at the Google office. You know that feel when you suddenly realise you have not been using your brain well or to full capacity. And I asked myself severally; “Am I living at all? What have I been doing with my life?” I should address my mindset and tend towards positivity more, expand my knowledge and make my world work. Guys are turning out great and amazing ideas, concepts, building life structures that will surely make you pause and think. And they are achieving this much not because they have money, in fact most of them did not even trade with money, but their intellectual property. I guess I should stop here, before the headache starts all over.
Well, for me to write all these, I think my head is still on, just that my brain needs some flushings, I need space. Some formatting and reinstalling. Never mind, I’ve got a back up for the important stuffs in it.
