On the other hand, you can serve yourself with the delicacies of the content of the mail as represented to you on this platform. Please, note the included reference….
“I met an old man in a bus on my way back to the University a few years ago. He looked scraggy, finished but interestingly talk active.
He sat next to me, I told him my dreams. We had a great time.
And when I was about to leave, he said to me “Son, look at me, look at you, I had great plans for today just a few yesterdays (years) ago too.
I was once like you, but don’t be like me. The only thing that can make a difference between the both of us in a few years lies in what we choose to do with our time, everyday.
He said something profound, he said, “When your youth and your now is a blunder, it leads to an adulthood of struggle and an old age of regret”. Immediately I got off that bus in 2007, I wrote this article below. Let me share it with you.
Are we moving forward? Do we live 365 days in a year or are we living a day, 365 times?
There’s a difference.
The clock is ticking. Think about this, for every morning we wake up alive, we have one less day to live.
For every time we breathe, we are one breadth short of life. What can you do better now to move forward?
Right now, you’re the oldest you’ve ever been, and the youngest you’ll ever be. All we have is the power, the power of now, make good use of it.
Do not procrastinate. Do.
Put your best daily and you’d deliver the future. In the words of Fela Durotoye, “The future is not just a place in time. It’s everything you were created to do but haven’t done, it’s all you can be but haven’t yet become”.
A goal is almost the same as a dream. But a goal is a dream with a set deadline.
Make your goals S.M.A.R.T (Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-bound).
What’s your target and time frame to achieve?
In the words of John Legend, “the future started yesterday, we are almost late”. Go further ahead.
Use the power of now. Deliver excellently.”
It’s a wrap!

You are always welcome, legendary Hannibal. Just to say time is always ticking
Life is not a project for which you can control all the important parameyrs and you will be wasting your time if you think you are in control. Life on the other hand is a succession of oppot0rtunities, most of which you will not even recognise. All those who talk about elaborate plans for the future are at best incurable optomists or at worst con artists. No life is like any other so just try as much as possible to find a way to lead your own life the best way you can. The rest is a pipe dream. Be original!
Thanks for your thoughts sir
Very well said sir. In trying as much as possible to find a way to lead our own lives the best way we can, we’ll only live well enough to make the best of the ‘probably’ few opportunities that we are ultimately able to recognize. What’s important also is application of self, in whatever way. It’s only important to observe that how we choose to live the minutes is what we choose to become. In considering the important other parameters we have no control over, and that affect us in unexpected ways, at least, it certainly gives us a path to go even if we never chose that path.
