THE YEAR 2016 LESSONS

Published

on

Despite being such a great year,2016 was rough for lots of us, and I’m no exception. Between global , national events and personal setbacks, it was a very tough year for me. More than I’ve let on here. I have my health and school, which are the most important things, and I did go through some significant personal losses. This year was a lot rougher than I thought it would be.

 

Here are my thoughts on 2016 . Several lessons too.

Cut the umbilical cord . Wanting comfort is sometimes what keeps us uncomfortable. Be ready for change . Step away from your comfort zone and do things, ( big things)

Self discipline and consistency makes talent more talented.

Anything can happen anywhere. I have learnt this from a personal as well as global level. ( Remember when Donald Trump became President)

Failure only means you will stop giving your time and thoughts to things that would not work

There is enough love for everyone.

You will never have all the tools you need to start but if you start you are one step closer . I learnt how to do crotchet braids sometime in august . I didnt have the latchhook ( the needle used for that) but i made my own from a soft wire . After using it for about three times , i was finally offered an actual latch hook . So begin where you are.

 

Your destination could be your starting point.

It happens all the time . You find your self in a place you should be. Is there a way out ? Pursue it .

NO? Find your way around that.

These are only a fraction of what i have learnt because life doesn’t stop teaching

The other day my younger sister was admiring my height wishing to be the same .I wanted to tell her its it is possible because she is still growing but i am not .I suddenly auto corrected my self to still capable of getting taller and am not.

 

Once you have chosen Growth ,There is never a dull moment . I am learning to open my mind and learn from everything and everyone .

Books have also been teaching me alot . My favourate reads for this year were:

The Alchemist , Outliers, Beat girl, and The Secret.

Second part of this post is all about the goals and milestones i set for 2016 .

For the first time i wrote my 2016 bucket list and i am grateful that some went well ( blogging to mention one) and some didn’t . Those that didn’t go well (like swimming ) have now become lessons and have left room for more trials .

 

But i must say putting my plans and thoughts into paper has highly helped me keep track of what i need to do and monitor my progress.

In the light of this i would love to urge you to #writeitdown . Be it your dreams, plans , to go list , things you are grateful for , to do list and basically everything .

You can also say it with your Chest by purchasing these themed t-shirts . Place your order by dialing +255675571180 ( Variable colour and size)

One last thing sometimes , i repeat again ( sometimes ) bad choices make good stories.

 

Thank you guys for being a part of the TWENTIESCO family and for all the love and support you have shown me but mostly my blog . I wish a prosperous 2017 . I wish you courage , love (a lot of it) and consistency .

Please subscribe to twentiesco blog , tell your fellow twenties about it and keep working on improving yourself to become the adult you want to be

HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES FOR ALL UNIVERSITY STUDENTS

Published

on

Holiday time ,

A time we have been looking forward to since school started! Blink and share this post if you can relate!

Fun holiday activities

I am a big pro-balance , i believe in late nights, early mornings and coffee but i also believe it is essential to lay back in the Bahamas and have someone bring you a Cool Mojito . So what do you do when you have a month or two of rest. Read On.
1.Rest
A bit Clichè right? But how many of us actually rest at least half of the time during the holiday?

While it is sometimes inevitable to reply that email, Attend that client, making time to take care of you, catch up on your favourite tv show or just sitting and breathing helps clear your brain and make you even more productive.

2. Learn a skill.

What a time to be Alive! Your next skill is literaly a few taps away. This skill can be a hobby you have been looking to get better at like sewing, singing, piano , cooking or something intergral in your career like history taking for new clinical rotation students or something you have wanted to do on the side( you have been talking about how you do not have time, and now Its here! ).

One of the founders of Afyatoon , an animation start-up that provides health education actually learnt how to animate during his summer holiday.

There are some things that are not taught in school and you are probably struggling with such as speaking in public , budgeting , dressing well, healthy living & more. Take time to train yourself on that.

3. Work on your side hustle
Balancing between studies and work is a challenge. Sometimes they are all demanding our time and energy. The holiday time therefore is a great time to focus on this thing , give it a mega push and this push will even save you the hustle when school starts.

 

4. Learn, explore and grow.
It is really eye-opening to learn a new thing or get to understand a certain topic . This can be a great time to do that. There is vast majority of knowledge and information on blogs, social media and in the actual world for you to learn .

Be curious, google , check out some you tube videos . But most of Enjoy your holiday .

 

What are you doing this holiday?

 

Twentiesco consultation doors are open! Book your consulation today and lets walk  this adulthood  journey together.

4 Tips for successfull Business In Agriculture For Beginners..

Published

agribussiness sucess tips

I have always heard national leaders claim that Agriculture is the backbone of Tanzania. Infact I wrote a couple of essay discussing this same a few year back in secondary school.
However, I have seen more backs deformed, callous on their hands and accidents where you cultivated your leg instead of the land than I have seen these same people afford to treat any of these conditions.
I have also been hearing that farmers in the west are rich and unbothered.
But then do you think such farmers cultivate acres of land ,wait for rain (fingers crossed ) , uproot weeds, harvest and sell to the next buyer that can pay them something close to half their children’s school fees?
Agriculture is a pretty lucrative sector. And if you aim in these areas , you might make a fortune.

1.Quality
There is a big market we are not accessing in the western countries because of standard barriers. A large number of crops we produce are of a good enough quality. But what about the end products? Can they cross the Jk.Nyerere airport without causing a security shut down? Another issue that hinders these products is packaging. Poor packaging makes a product look cheap and not reliable.

2.Processing and Storage
Why do we pay these timewasters so much.
Because they process raw products. Turning sisal to .. and selling finished products has higher profit . . Plus how do you expect to make much of a profit when everyone is trying to sell the same thing before it rots. These products need to be stored well too so that their value stays and can be sold even after the season is over.

FAST MONEY IDEAS AND NOT TOO FAST

3.WHAT WOULD YOU FIND IN DOHA THAT IS IN KHARTOUM. ?
What is trending?
If you want to have a large market, go for products that are widely used in different places and some trending crops. Think Chia seeds, strawberries , pepper etc.

You can also contact restaurants for tenders so you have a market right away.
Let me let you in on a little secret a farmer told me.You do not need acres to farm. A green house is a perfect way to produce extremely quality crops that could sell in Antarctica for a million dollars . There is also an option of renting a farm .
That’s it fellaz ,As this weather moves you to cultivate other people, may you consider trying out crops. This is because agribusiness is worth investing in although it has not succeed to be as attractive as network marketing.
