12 steps to self- fulfilment. By joseph Campbell

1.Tell yourself the truth-draw two columns on a sheet of paper and on the left column write down what you would love to do. Then write down on the other side everything you are doing without any enthusiasm.
2.Start slowly but start-look for something that fits your budget, and execute it, go buy that book you’ve been wanting to buy, be generous to yourself.
3.Stop slowly but stop-some things use up your energy.do you really need to help those who don’t want to be helped?

4.Discover small talents-what do your friends tell you that you do well? What do you relish even if it’s not perfectly well done? These small talents are hidden messages to your large occult talents.
5.Begin to choose- if something gives you pleasure do not hesitate if you are in doubt close your eyes, imagine that you made decision A and see all that it will bring to you. Now do the same with decision B. the decision that makes you feel more connected to life is the right one even if it’s not the easiest to make.
6.Don’t…

Do Baby daddy and How i met your mother both have similar plots?

Image
How I met your mother was one the most successful sitcoms after Friends. Running for ten seasons straight it was hard for fans to come to terms with its end and especially Barney Stinson(Neil Patrick harris) and his catch phrases and plays like: “Have you met…..!”, “tonight is going to be wait for it…legendary”. How I met your mother starred Ted Mosby(Josh Radnor) an architect from new York who tells his children the story of how he met their mother.Ted Mosby struggles through new York’s trying to find a suitable mate with the help of his cool friend Barney Stinson who does not believe in being tied down to one woman or even settling down. Ted only gets a glimpse of his wife after she visits a girl she dating and notices a yellow umbrella belonging to the girl’s roommate. She comes to meet her in the hand and they end up dating, the comedy series, however, ends tragically after Ted Mosby marries Robin(Cobie Smulders) whom she dated earlier but later become barneys wife. The end rather…

Data wars: Safaricom Orange Airtel who wins?

Image
Are you constantly wondering which wireless ISP (internet service provider) provider to choose from? well, think no more I've got you covered with this breakdown between Orange Safaricom & Airtel data offers. they all have their up and downs so while one may look attractive on the surface they actually might turn out to be a nuisance. I remember a while back I travelled to Kilifi and bought Orange unlimited on my phone only for me to find out that they had not upgraded their services to 3G at that time. What a waste. Before you run and purchase that modem or airtime to buy your bundles ensure that the provider has 3G/4G connectivity in the town you're at. You can access this offers through USSD code *544# on all networks.

Orange data offers: {New} 1.5GB –Kshs 500 X cell bundles daily 400MB –Kshs 50.                           Weekly 2GB-Kshs 249.                           Monthly 6GB-kshs 990.
Daily 15MB- Kshs 9.           40MB -Kshs 19.            100MB- Kshs 39.            400MB -…

Love is more than a feeling its an action

Image
We fall in love with someone not because of what they have or how they look but rather how they make us feel about ourselves. While having some external attributes will initially increase your level of attractiveness, it takes much more for someone to fall in love with you. A famous song says that money can’t buy the love of which its very true. Ever wonder how a beautiful woman will date an average guy to the point of loving him while rich men who can offer her all her desires are left out in the cold explain it all. 
 Don’t go looks even that fades go for someone who brings light into a dark day.
We once in a while meet people who break our defences and make us feel weak the type of people if a thousand people are in a room you instantly look for them because they matter more to us more than anyone else. Even those with tough exteriors have a soft spot inside them that can be changed by love.
There is no Love without pain but the pain is worth it compared to not loving at all. it is sa…

Beginners guide to Programming

Image
Programming is often misconceived in this day and age by some people who deem it as too hard to grasp or too geeky and not cool. However once you start learning you get addicted slowly desiring to learn more and experiment on your knowledge.i.e.  a program built by MIT to teach programming makes it fun and removes the need to remember complex attributes or operands, by connecting the sprites you get to build your own game or program that can be easily tweaked without coding. Scratch
Before learning any programming language you need to have a clear end goal of what you intend to achieve by learning that language. A few years back I enrolled into CS50 a computer science course offered by Harvard on EDX MOOC but ended up leaving it half way.as an intro to the course learners are required to learn the C language which was no fun for me at all. If you want to learn web design for ex, it’s necessary to learn CSS, HTML & JavaScript and a backend language like PHP as compared to learning …

Alex Mutuku the KRA hacker should not be jailed..

Image
 Alex mutunga Mutuku the now famous KRA hacker who made away with close to kshs 4bn should not be jailed. This guy is too smart to be in jail and the courts ought to see that. What he did was wrong and punishable but stealing that amount of money from the government requires balls of steel something he clearly possesses. If he goes to prison, it will take him no time to start his own crime syndicate like the: “tuma pesa kwa hii number ndo natumia sahi” but even more advanced. he reminds me of Bernard Madoff the Ponzi scheme guy who stole $17bn before being caught and imprisoned for 150 years.
I saw how he was smiling for the cameras while in court because at the back of his mind he knew no bail will be too high for him. While he was dumb enough to post all rendezvous on social media forgetting all about criminal 101, leave no evidence. Alex mutuku a first class honors graduate from the university of Nairobi is far much brighter than the NYS scandal thieves who stole money using sacks …

How to Document Vs Create #Inspiration Thursdays.

Most of us have very beautiful ideas that could help others but those ideas are never implemented because of fear and trying to play safe. If you are one of them learn that it’s far more important to document vs. to create. While you might despise what you are doing as being too small remember the bible talks on not despising the days of humble beginnings’ I learnt this from Gary Vaynerchuk a famous guy on YouTube who was giving advice to a young man about the importance of documenting vs. creating this advice alone gave me the guts to finish my first book 25 the novel. and to follow my dreams with absolute certainty. There is a group out there that is worried more about appearing perfect than what they have to offer. This verse in the book of psalms set me free. Psalms 39:4 Lord, make me know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is: that I may know how frail I am. Quit worrying about how people will perceive you and concentrate on what you have to offer to them. If you are into…

Search engine optimization for dummies.

Image
Search engine optimization is mandatory for your site the same as fuel is for a vehicle. Ignoring it is equal to driving blindfolded and hoping not to crash. If you are new to blogging this guide is meant to help you get your blog off ground and make it visible to major search engines. Before you begin blogging you first need to find your niche as it will make work easier and more fun for you. Blogging on something you’re not passionate about never works in the long run. Once you have identified your niche narrow it to small subgroups that you feel confident about while you might be passionate about tech as me you can’t simply cover tech as a whole as the field as huge and is constantly growing. You need to Choose a suitable domain name to suit your clientele if you feel like getting a .com domain will work buy one then, however, don’t buy a cheap domain as they rank lower on search engines according to Mozrank. If you have a small budget it's better you get a free plan from blogger…

OEMs like the Gionee introduced the A1 with a 20Mp selfie camera and the new LG G6 comes with two powerful rear cameras.5G also made a comeback with mobile manufacturers competing on who will beat the other on the telecommunication platform.5G has been around for a while and has been undergoing feasibility tests in Japan to test its market readiness. So before you start bragging about your new phone with its 4G LTE capabilities relax something new is in the offing. So what is 5G? And the new thing will it bring. 5G according to experts 5G is advanced 4G with more capabilities. it was slated to be commercially available by 2022 but the introduction of the new ZTE gigabit phone that has download speeds as fast as 1 Gb per second means it could even come sooner than expected.

So how do you get by during lean times, how can you still live comfortably with less? Technology has given us options to get by with little.wats app for example introduced an option for free voice calls and video calls of good quality if your network reception is above average. With, these ad ones you need not spend money buying airtime to call or surf. Data bundles will suffice for both.
Mobile money is very helpful but still expensive. If you need to withdraw money from your bank account DO NOT transfer it to your Mpesa account it costs Kshs 58 for any amount. Look for one of your banks agents and withdraw from them its way cheaper ‘it might look like you are saving a little but if you put the power of compounding into place, it adds up to a  tidy sum in the long run. 
If you are a bachelor eating out might sound cheaper and more convenient but those take outs cost you a lot i like the advert by Barclays bank that has the illustration of how cutting back on take outs can afford you th…

Honesty Please:Kenyan politics deserves it.

Image
Being in a campaign season in our country a number of people have shown interest in various elective posts and try to impress us with their manifestos full of hopes and promises of a better tomorrow if elected. Most of them disappoint eventually as they preach water but prefer hard liquor. With an exception of a few most of them never really say what is in their hearts treating us fools as if we can’t read right through their their well-crafted manifestoes.
I as a voter desire to see the day when a political aspirant will take the dais and tell us the whole truth and nothing but the truth. How they plan to become a tenderprenuer once elected how they will offer job opportunities only to close members of his clique and also how they will develop many ghost projects among others. Although my thinking is a little farfetched and we as humans don’t like hearing the truth and instead like being soothed with lies.if as an aspirant you promise 10% and deliver 12% instead people sing your prais…

English Premier league:As it stands

Image
The English premier league is the most interesting football league in the world. Interesting unlike La liga or Bundesliga which have dominant teams who always carry the league the PL has room for surprises. Last season in the premier league Leicester won the league to everyone’s surprise. Fast forward to Feb 2017 they are position 17 in the log with 21 points and facing imminent relegation. It’s only in the premier league where you find such absurdities. While Chelsea a team which was trailing last season is about to lift the PL trophy with just a slight change in squad and a passionate coach. Arsenal on the other hand is just Arsenal a place where ammunition is manufactured and stored. Arsenal manufactures the best talents and sells them to win titles for other clubs. Arsene wenger is like a guy at a party who is a great flirt but does not know how to close even after last call. The fans trust his flirting skills but fail to see that in the game it’s the closer who is celebrated.
