I know people may throw stones at me...

I was going to say, can we improve on our writing skills, sentence structure, grammar, shorthands and all. Many people on this thread are talking about furthering education but it can be difficult to even read a sentence let alone get clarity of what the point of the sentence is.


Biko, do something about it. It is easier to move over a post that is unclear and not offer suggestions.

Someone made payment for voucher into my account without informing or approaching me for the voucher.

Sad story. And the girl doesn't even look like a violent person. The worst thing that can happen to a man is to be killed in your sleep by the one who says she loves you.
He was killed in his sleep? That makes sense though. It was never stated in any of the news I have been reading but it sure makes sense.

Education / 39 Things About Life I Wish I Had Known 10 Years Ago by AjalaJ(m): 3:57am
About two years ago I started a list called “Things I wish I had known earlier” in my journal.

I initially came up with 25 lessons about life, career, love, and relationships. Things I’ve learned from mentors, books, friends, readers, etc.
I created the list for myself because I realized that I forgot important lessons at the same rate I learned new lessons.

And when I shared the list on my blog for the first time, a lot of people thought it was useful. Two years later, I still read the list a few times a year. Plus, I added new lessons I’ve learned recently.


Here’s the latest edition. I hope you find it useful.

1. Struggle Is Good
Never say “I can’t take it anymore.” Say “Bring it on!”

2. Don’t Complain
Complaining is the biggest waste of time there is. Either do something about it, and if you can’t, shut up about it.

3. Always Strive For Something
When you wake up in the morning, think about what you’re trying to achieve. Humans need a vision to wake up every morning. After you picture your vision, go after it. Every day.

4. Spend Time With People You Love
That’s your family and best friends. If you don’t have a family, create one. Most people in life are only visitors. Family is for life.

5. Don’t Start A Relationship If You’re Not In Love
I’ve done this more than once. You kind of like someone and think: “We might as well give it a shot.” Not a good idea. You’re either in love, or you are not. Don’t fool yourself. It’s not fair to you and the other person.

6. Exercise Daily
A healthy body is where you have to start everything in life. If you can’t build a healthy and strong body, what can you build in life?

7. Keep A Journal
No, keeping a journal is not for children. It helps you to become a better thinker and writer. “I don’t want to be a writer” you might think. Well, how many emails and texts do you send a day? Everybody is a writer.

8. Be Grateful
Say ‘thank you’ to everyone and everything. “Thank you for this beautiful day.” “Thank you for your email.” “Thank you for being there for me.”

9. Don’t Care About What People Think
We all die in the end, do you really think it matters what people think of you?

10. Take More Risks
Don’t be such a wimp. Seriously.

11. Pick An Industry, Not A Job
If you want to become good at something, you need to spend years and years doing that. You can’t do that if you hop from industry to industry. Pick an industry you love and start at the bottom. You will find the perfect role for you eventually.

12. Lead The Way
When you find yourself in a situation where everyone looks at each other, it’s time for you to lead. You‘re a leader when you decide to become one. There’s no initiation or a title. Just a decision.

13. Things Are Not What They Seem
If something sounds too good to be true, it is. A little skepticism never hurts.

14. Money Is Not The Most Important Thing
You have to train yourself not to care about money and focus on providing value instead. Also, don’t become too dependent on the stuff you own — otherwise, the stuff will own you.

15. Be Nice
I don’t mean you should be a pushover. You can be someone that doesn’t take poo and be nice about it. Just don’t insult people, think you’re better than them, or act like an idiot.

16. Strain Yourself
Take on challenging things in your life. No strain no gain.

17. Get Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable
Life, work, relationships, challenges. It’s all uncomfortable. So get comfortable with that.

18. Learn Every Day
You’ve got to train your brain to stay alert. You don’t have to read a book a day to learn every day. Learn from your mistakes. Learn from the people around you — be open to what they can teach you.

19. Rest Before You Are Tired
Even if you love your job, and every day seems like a holiday, you need to take time to rest. You’re a human and not an android, never forget that.

20. Don’t Judge
Just because people make different choices than you, they are not stupid. Also, you don’t know everything about people, so don’t judge them — help them.

21. Value Yourself
“Who am I to say something?” Well, you’re a human being who wakes up every morning and contributes something to this world. You have the right to say and do anything you want. Recognize that.

22. Have Patience
Rome wasn’t built in a day, right? But that’s too obvious. Rome also wasn’t built in a year, or even two years, or even five years. Some things take decades to make happen. How’s that for your perspective?

23. Think About Others
Just be mindful, that’s all. We all have families, bills to pay, and our own issues. Don’t always make everything about yourself.

24. Give Without Expecting Something In Return
Don’t keep score. You will become a bitter person if you do that. Give solely for the joy of giving. If you get something in return, great, if you don’t, great.

25. There’s No End Game
We, as a species, just are. Don’t try to figure it all out. Enjoy your journey.

26. Enjoy Small Things
I like clichés because they are true. Especially this one. You know why? Everyone says they know it, but no one lives up to it. They just chase big things.

27. Don’t Take Yourself Seriously
Yeah, yeah, you’re an individual, and people have to take you seriously, I get it. But at the end of the day, we’re all a bunch of ants trying to chase the same things. Lighten up.

28. Take On More Responsibilities
Sounds paradoxical (like many things in life), but believe me on this one. The more responsibilities you have, the more purpose you have in life. Just don’t get overwhelmed. You’re not that important.

29. Don’t Blame People
What’s the point? Do you want to punish them? You don’t do that to people. Also, don’t blame yourself — you’re only human.

30. Never Look Back Too Long
Reflecting on the past is only good for one thing: Learning.

31. It’s Okay To Be Sad
Life’s not always great. We all know that. But why do we pretend we’re okay while we’re not? Because we’re too proud. If you’re not doing well, admit it. Now, you can work on getting better.

32. Avoid Negative Situations And People
You can’t underestimate the impact others have on you. Get away from negativity at all cost.

33. Invest In Yourself
Skills are worth more than a good job, career, money, and even a reputation.Why? The world always needs people who can do something well. Be that person.


34. Rely On Yourself
Because it’s the best feeling in the world to know you can figure things out by yourself. But don’t overdo it. Ask for help when you need it.

35. Don’t Listen To “No”
The best things in life only happened after people heard “no.” Did they quit? No.


36. Buy A House
A lot of wealthy people say they never buy a property to live in it because it’s not an investment. They’re right. But a lot of people still don’t care because they like to own the house they live in. I agree. And if you move on, rent it out. It’s an investment.

37. Hold Yourself To A High Standard
When you do something, do it well or not at all. Always strive for outperforming yourself.


38. Create Something
Not to leave a legacy, you won’t be here to see it anyway, but to be of use. Make music, write a book, build a table, anything. You’ll feel good about yourself, plus you give something back to people to use or enjoy.

39. Take Action
Don’t just sit there, do something. Without action, there is no outcome.


You might know a lot. But just like Socrates, who believed he knew nothing, you and I also know nothing at all.
So we have to keep learning.

Investment / Re: What Is Wrong With Genexpayments? by clintonsparkz(m): 3:56am
Cooleasy:
@Clintonspark, it was shortly after this that he began to seriously misbehave, up to the extent of going behind a company in which he himself was an admin, to setting up a hostile, parallel group, forcefully adding admins and members there and trying to incite them against GeneX. GeneX Terms clearly states 120 days maximum for capital return; but within a couple of weeks, Alhaji started fighting against GeneX, and trying to mobilise other members, including his fellow admins, against the company management. What he did; if it is in a political arena, that is TREASON. Even in other aspects or disciplines, that is the highest level of betrayal against a body to which, as an admin, he was bound to be TOTALLY loyal to. As an admin, who should understand the Terms, SwaggerAlhaji knows fully well, the fact that the Terms would be invoked against him, and how it would be invoked against him (or anybody else for that matter) if he engaged in acts that violated the Terms. And even ignorance, cannot be an excuse. Even if a GeneX admin, through private chats, promised him payment next day or so and couldn't effect it at the stated dates, as long as it's still WITHIN 120 days, GeneX has NOT breached any terms and Alhaji could have exercise the virtue of PATIENCE, which, as an Islamist, is well known by him as 'Sabr'. Should Alhaji read this, I would advise him to read this with the fear of Allah.
Beyond this, is the fact that this issue is also VERY legalistic beyond the mere simplification of someone crying 'give me my money o; you don't want to give me my money'. If this matter should get to court, GeneX would be glad to tender its own defenses and evidences, most of which we have up till now refrained from tendering on social media - and at this point I would suggest that SwaggerAlhaji should use the millions he has earned from GeneX to get a good lawyer. This will be an interesting case.
If he feels that he has been truly oppressed by GeneX and he truly has nothing to hide and he truly believes that GeneX, with whom he himself has been an integral part for many months now, has been a scam, then he can take GeneX to court.
Any clean, law abiding person who feels oppressed, would gladly explore this option.
so it's 1- 120 days? Alhaji u could have waited,
if all what u stated are true then the alhaji guy bleeped up, every investment has terms and conditions, you shouldn't have brought this to nairaland, its pure self centeredness, seems d alhaji guy is just after all about himself.

In every step we take in life we should think about others.

I know Genex are not scammer and I pray u guys survive this storm and grow stronger.

As for the alhaji guy, u fvck up.

Thanks for explaining.

anthony281:
I’m thirty and have had a couple relationships in the past. I’ve been engaged once, but that relationship didn’t work out, because she left me for somebody else.
I was heartbroken. I’ve gone on a few dates after that, but I couldn’t find it in me to trust anyone.
Then I met Karla on loveme. She’s a beautiful girl from Cuban-Mexican descent. We get along with each other, and everything is going so well.There’s no issues of a language barrier since I am also partly Cuban by my mother’s side. She makes me laugh every day with her jokes and she always takes the time to listen to my daily stories.
The problem now is that I’m scared of making it official with her. It’s not that I don’t want to, I’m just terrified that I might get hurt again. On the other hand, I’m afraid that if I put off pursuing a relationship with her further, she’ll find someone else. Am I wrong for feeling this way? How will I know our relationship won’t go south?
The distance is also scary for me. We only met online and there’s a huge possibility that it wouldn’t work out. What if she’ll cheat on me behind my back when I’m away? I’m really stumped with what to do right now. I need all the help I could get. Any words of advice, anyone?
