Hmm!! Today is the first day of work. Manze nimechoka you'd think l was in a shamba limaing. My holiday was a real holiday. I slept loads, bought books and read them, watched tv, slept and then read some more. What more would you want from a holiday?!! So trust me when l say fatigue is written all over my face.
Happy New year to y'all who set goals in January. I am actually reviewing my life. And no, that didn't start on the 1st. It started in September when l celebrated my birthday. Yes, my year starts then not in January. So by the time guys are getting excited and are setting their goals and promising to keep their end of bargain, mimi, either nishaboeka or am in full gear.
I am beginning to be very cautious about this life. I am at a place in my life where l know success does not come overnight; where you will not excite me with get-rich-quick schemes(for y'all who send me those:-) ) Have l given up? Actually no. I have this relationship with life that makes for a romantic read.
I have all these ideas l am working on. Right now, l am almost debt free. I have paid up quite a number of debts l had. Eeeh!!No l didn't win the lottery. I just realized to get a head l need to have good debt, not debt that is meaningless. If l have to use my credit card l need a sawa reason to use it. If l need a loan l need a good reason to actually get one. No my dear, my life is not strict.
In fact, l think l am very lenient with me. I walk into bookshops and hug like 5 books. I end up leaving about 5 or 6k of my money with the smiling attendant. I love reading and especially books that challenge me to greater heights of thinking. I like books that stretch me.
Do you know books that stretch? Okay here...those books that you have to read one sentence 5 times to just understand what the guy is trying to sema. Why bother? You wonder. Baby,l loves the challenge. So l ask, why not bother?
That stretching of mind l experienced it when l first started reading Havard Business Review and Fortune. Men!! l'd read a sentence till my head just went giddy. Now however, something bad happened. I am an addict to these mags. Of course and others including National Geographic.
Okay this year l am not kicking these habits. Instead l have to find a way to finance my reading addiction.Actually l have been trying to finance this habit since September.
So to y'all who set goals in this new year, l hope you stick with them mpaka mwisho.
TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES, SUCCESSFUL 2006
