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


More than a million (the nice and the not-so-nice)

For most of us, life’s happenings are beyond reason
And as such we discover the well-watered and drought ridden all in the same season
Making the self a victim of internal criticism and external realism
Full of contradictions

Connate values and inherent beliefs to justify societal standing
Tenets adopted with no intrinsic understanding of Agrippa’s trilemma
Resulting in millennium prize problems worth more than a million

So why wonder why when it’s been clear from the beginning
Take action, experience fresh feelings and end the turmoil within
Shape your own definition of freedom of thought and expression
The most potent impetus for new creations
And the tool for interpreting life’s constitution
In order to make sense of virtue and vice
The nice and the not-so-nice


Making the Most

In the omnibus will be your magnus opus
So why not carry out your life’s work and grand vision with devotion and focus
While still having reasonable expectations
Since the path to creating impact
Is often unmarked with no clear directions
And simply can’t be navigated using a compass
As many factors will ultimately determine the end result
Whether oblivion or Mount Olympus


Sketch for a Theory of Persistent Passions (vii)

a certain degree of privation is necessary for motivation

just as longing and desire too are often strong calls to action

so the key to persevering, is focusing on trajectory and not position

because even the achievement of a set goal won’t give quite the same satisfaction as that from the pursuit of a passion


Memoirs of the Moribund

the coterie of statecraft collusionists
prescribed neoliberal economics
which involved a lot of palaver in administering
structural adjustment programs which would ultimately serve the rich
and cater to a class of conspicuous consumers

at the same time centrist movements felt the power shift
and since they couldn’t compete with established free enterprise capitalists
they became dependent on a system that would not protect them
and with that came an end to the development of their worker-centric ideas around financial independence


Art Affair

Success doesn’t come quick but play fair
And always create from the heart
Because art, like satisfaction, is a personal affair

You’ll find no reason to quit if you don’t compare
Because contentment is a place all can arrive at
The only difference is how we get there
