A FOOL LEARNS FROM HIS MISTAKES

In the last few months very little writing have l done on this post.But l have written a lot. Only it was on my mind. True. Last night l was thinking how when and if you want to get something done, it is safest to actually do it and not hope that one day you will get round to doing it.So here l am writing as always. I love writing.I also love reading.

Lately what gets to me is when l hear ignorance portrayed in a sentence which in the larger picture is part of a conversation. Oh no!! not ignorance of me being arrongant. No.It is ignorance from top executives.I keep wondering what happened to these people. For instance l keep witnessing firms getting into trouble with their employees because the firm didn't take into consideration the employees grievances.I watch large organizations in Kenya make mistakes that the west has already made and learned from. Then l wonder who is advising these directors? Who is sitting in their board of directors and steering the organizations?

My honest take...a fool learns from his mistakes, a wise man learns from others mistakes. Don't wait to learn from your own mistakes which could cost you thousands of dollars or in my case shillings especially if you are running a large business operation. That is why we are over 6 billion people on this planet.You don't need to be a first in goofs. Somebody went ahead of you and made the goofs for you.

Sometimes fools never see beyond their foolishness and they are clouded by greed & selfishness. Thats why some of these seemingly good companies are going down.

As soon as the core values that govern an institution start being undermined & eroded the company starts to go down. As future leaders we need to rise above that and put the common interests and core values that have brought us thus far ahead of anything else....

A stupid man never learns from his mistakes.
Enjoy!!! All mistakes!
