November was certainly calmer than October for Nigeria, yet still a fast-paced month for me.
How was your November?
A useful reminder
Highlights of November:
- Joining TechCabal as a Writer/Editor. A career switch that took some thinking and deliberations but one month in and I’m liking it.
- Spending a week in a different part of Lagos.
- Outburst music dropped its first video – Light Up The Way ft. Eben
The Trial of Chicago 7: This reminded me about the EndSARS protests. I’m glad it had a good ending.
42: A movie about Black Baseball legend Jackie Robinson.The first time I saw this movie a few years ago, I didn’t know who Chadwick Boseman was.
The Final year: I’d like to see something like this done for the last year of a Nigerian government’s tenure.
I’m still on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. I might as well finish it this year if I put my mind to it.
Cloout: Just glad we’ve done 48 weeks straight in 2020. I haven’t the strength to implement a few ideas.

A second read and it felt like I hadn’t read it before.
“You will not have a meaningful life without work, but you cannot say that your work is the meaning of your life.”
How to Talk to Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere: The Secrets to Good of Communication – Larry King
This is one of those books I expect I should have read but I haven’t. It’s helpful since I’ve been interviewing many people in the past month. Although I think comfortable talking to anyone, anytime, anywhere, there’s no end to learning.
“My first rule of conversation is this: I never learn a thing while I’m talking. I realize every morning that nothing I say today will teach me anything, so if I’m going to learn a lot today, I’ll have to do it by listening.
Since I’m now a full-time writer, I have to plan to write for myself.
But here are two stories I wrote in my first month at TechCabal
From the Web ?
A child’s greatest gift to us is to keep insisting that nothing is ever very normal.
If you tell me you’ve found a way to double your money in a week, I’m not going to believe you by default.
But if my family was starving and I owed someone money next Monday that I don’t have, I would listen. And I would probably believe whatever crazy prediction you have because I’d desperately want and need it to be right.
Tell your boss you found a trick that will make you more creative and productive, and they ask what you’re waiting for. Tell them that your trick is taking a 90-minute walk in the middle of the day, and they say no, you need to work.
This is such a good interview and a rare one too. Michael Jordan has been low-key for a long time. It’s pre “The Last Dance”.
Hold me oh
Hold me oh
Hold me oh
I fit to shey werey gon for here ?
I love this song by Falz. It’s a breakdown of how street fights start in Lagos.
