How to stake a claim

Respect the game and do your research

Nothing ever stays the same so don’t wait to be knocked off your perch or left in the lurch

Stay curious and always keen to find out what’s new, what’s next and how you can get there first

The Compradors

When conflating issues (economic, political and social) lead to crisis

There are always comprador classes on the scene, pulling the strings, and controlling the masses

This is apparent particularly in Africa, which is now run by post structural adjustment oligarchs


Living Forever in a Moment

The avoidance of regret

Might inspire one to take actionable steps

But often with unintended consequences due to triggering the onset

Of a perpetual pursuit to have desires instantly met

Or in fact the complete opposite

Foregoing immediate gratification to appreciate self-conquest in retrospect

All which can shift one’s experiences outside a moment’s presence

And as a result, impairing reason, judgement and common sense


Mind Matters

Impressions influence the formulation of opinion
And experience either confirms or contradicts bias

Perspective however, is predicated on priorities set
Based on one’s propensity to make predictions about how the future might take shape


Growth Synthesis

Commitment to creativity can help overcome inaction and passivity

But it is discipline that builds courage and confidence in one’s abilities

Likewise, drive and determination can boost productivity

But it is the dedication to progression that often transforms entire industries


Of Action & Condition

Satisfaction is felt in the momentary negation of future expectation
And elation comes from instant appreciation not tomorrow’s benefaction

A nation’s joyous celebration shouldn’t be reserved for conquest and annexation
But experienced each time fair concessions are entered into with other sovereign nations

Effective action is full of conviction and devoid of hesitation
While the best communication is unhindered by limitation in comprehension
