Welcome to a new week!
This past saturday, my company ended the first edition of our ‘Employee to Employer’. Bootcamp and it was an awesome experience.
One of the participants, who works with a bank and had been considering a move to start his company sometime this year, pinged me this morning and thanked me for putting together the programme. There was something he said however that triggered my thought for this broadcast.
‘I am realising now that passion without knowledge is a disaster. I need knowledge. Right now, I’m working on a shift to a management consulting related entity. Even at a lower pay’
For me, these words are proof that the event was successful.
But how does this concern you.
Everyone of us is in a process of transition in different aspects of our lives. For some, its moving from being single to being married; for others, its moving from staying with someone to moving to their own place and yet, for others, it might be moving from middle management to senior management etc.
If you have only passion/ desire without knowledge, you are ‘cooking’ some ‘spicy’ disaster that you’ll eat in the future.
You MUST deliberately advance what you know about where you want to go.
Unfortunately, no one can do this for you. It will come with costs but it will pay you in time.
This week, go for knowledge! The book of truth says, ‘for the soul to be without knowledge, is not good’.
There are many channels available. Transit successfully by adding knowledge to your passion.
Employment Bootcamp (for those who are not working) holds 19th & 20th of February (you can ping or call 07043333041 for details).
I will be speaking to over 5000 youth corpers this week (starting in an hour) in Lagos & Enugu. A mention in your prayers will go a long way.
You ARE destined for greatness! Let’s play our part this week in creating the future we desire!
Pls help re-broadcast.
