How X, Y and Z became xyz part 1

Hi guys, I decided to do this thread so that I can have some inner peace. For a while now, I have been doing more of what’s app status thread and twitter. So, I felt comfortable that I am guaranteed at least a hundred read. Speaking with George over the weekend, I started having this flies in my inner ears That Won’t allow me have some inner peace.

So, here we are, and I want to tell you about xyz. Xyz is basically business. I mean, economies and market and all that. And it became so because each of this variables where independent at first.

X and Y and Z were never friends, they are enemies, joint enemies of man. They gave mankind so much headache, that mankind decided he had had enough. So mankind figured that by multiplying x with y and then Z, each element will stop driving man crazy guy produce benefits for man, and that’s how xyz came to be.

Businesses arise as a result of problems that cried for solutions. By now, that idea has become a mantra, and that’s why young entrepreneurs must learn design solutions to problems in form of products.

A product must have benefits, that’s the tag line of my friend’s business; Pentconcept. The benefit you are selling is usually solving a particular problem or more that the customer had.

Problems in the 21sr century are varied, you can’t sum them into a box. There are the basic problems associated with developing countries, there are problems associated with transiting markets, with developed economies.

Here is the thing, what problem are you most passionate about solving? Alright, that’s crappy, let me rephrase that a little. What problems are you passionate about solving?

The Desmond Dominance law of cyclic solution states:

Every problem portends a solution and every solution portends a new problem that needs to be solved.

Whatever problem it is that you wanna solve, a solution could be presented as a business model. Young entrepreneurs should learn how to design solutions in form of products.

When people see products or services, they should be able to see it as a solution to a problem they have.

I am in the business of providing products that offer psychological benefits to Nigerians. In the next post, I will tell you all about it.

For now, peace and enjoy this picture of #Elon Musk and #Yuzaku Maezawa on their #dearmoon project.



At the centre of the soul

Let me do a quick song
What will happen if the pitcher be broken at the stream?
At the centre of the soul we heard a silent scream
It wasn’t long ago that we sung the songs of gods of old
Old women sing their lore, children babble along
They said, it wasn’t a new thing, a lamb could have a horn
The gods came down a series of chains to rape Ayé
It wasn’t a new thing, there’s no cause for alarm they said
You should sit down quietly and sing your tears alone

But at the centre of your soul, there goes a silent scream
The tears from your eyes have made a flowing stream
Like Dorothy you could drown in it
It begs your wonder, what you could achieve

I think, the past could scream as long as your present is quite
If only we could make more sound, rather than loud noises
If only we can drown the noise of our past in the music of our today
If only, we can find harmony in the songs our lives sing.

15 ways to attract the Love you deserve

So, my friend Victoria made a great post, I loved it so much I decide I’m gonna repost this. So, I took permission from her and here it is:

1.) Let go of old, limiting beliefs that you don’t deserve love and happiness. Instead, learn to be grateful everyday.

2.) Don’t take rejection personally. We have a limited time on earth and life is too short for any regret. Go ahead and make a move. Be sincere about your feelings and confess it. Wear your heart on your sleeve, for we only regret the chances we didn’t take.

3.) Go with the flow, be in the moment and don’t over think. Understand that life is happening right now. Stay in the present and enjoy the journey, instead of thinking about the past, or worrying about the future.

4.) Be honest about your feelings. Don’t play mind games and pretend you don’t like someone when you do.

5.) Be open minded. Look past imperfections and be less judgmental.

6.) Take good care of yourself. Eat healthily, exercise and have enough sleep. When you feel yourself getting tense, take a deep breath and relax. It works.

7.) Put yourself first. Hold yourself in high regard and know your worth. Never settle for a relationship that doesn’t stir your heart and make you happy.

8.) Be kind to yourself. Always celebrate how far you’ve come. Compliment and affirm how great you are. The only validation you need is from yourself.

9.) Don’t be fixation on finding love. Acknowledge that there’s more to life than romantic love. Appreciate that you are greatly loved by your family and friends.

10.) Make yourself attractive and presentable. Take pride in your appearance.

11.) Be driven in your life and have goals. Put in one hundred percent effort in what you do, be it your work, your hobbies and your passion.

12.) Know the kind of relationship you want. Reflect on your past relationships and think of the deal breakers you cannot accept, as well as personal values you stand by, and refuse to compromise on.

13.) Learn to enjoy your company. Be comfortable in your own skin. Take yourself out on dates. Try new things. Get out of your comfort zone and embrace uncertainty.

14.) Stay true to yourself. Listen to yourself and live the life you want, not the life you think you should have.

15.) Be optimistic about love. Just because things didn’t work out in the past doesn’t mean things will always remain this way. Know that all the love you want is already inside you. It’s up to you to attract the love you deserve.


A message to someone who thinks he/she isn’t worthy of the love you deserve.

I really hope this helps. Much love from Navec 💞

Along the coast now

This is in response to today’s daily prompt. 

Along the coast you could notice the tiny tidbits of wonders darting about the clear sky. I often wondered if anyone else could see them. Everyone seems to be about their own business, laughing and playing with the sand and water. I, on the other hand focus on the tiny little creatures that have stolen my imagination. 

It reminds me of P.T Flea in the 1994 Disney movie, A bug’s life. That’s the movie that made me see potential in writing about insects. Before then, I have been a keen observer of tiny creatures, mostly ants. 

They are awesome creatures, you could make them go to war, you could even make them move their nest. Back then, those where my favourite past time adventure. Apart from whispering my ideas back to myself, or sitting before the “teli” seeing another episode of adventures of Sam or teletubbies or starship troopers, I watch ants. 

Curious creatures, they appear to be very organised, they have an ant for everything; scavenging, storage, care, feeding, defence, building. Awesome beings. 

It makes me wonder if this luminescent flying beings that whiz and dart about this clear coastal air have such system… 

They are beautiful to look at. Often, I try to catch them in full view, but most times, they appear at the edge of my sight. I see them with my peripheral vision. And if I turn to look, they dissolve into the view…..luminescent flying beings, the tiny flies that whiz around.

The little flies that whiz around

Sometimes, looking inward takes you on a Google tour… 

Sometimes, the answer is somewhere on a facebook page, waiting for you to travel by and notice… 

Most times, we don’t pause to listen to the silent echo that resonates from around us, the epiphanies we desperately need are always there, all it takes is for us to catch on. 

Mine took me on a several months tour. After my year long project hit the walls, something within me broke.  Something was made within me too. It took me sometime to realise this of course, the first was the unavoidable sadness that comes with failure. I made up my mind not to evade it, but to embrace it. After a while it got tired of my optimism and left. 

I realised I wanted to do what I needed to do, and be paid doing it. So, “bye bye to everything” I said. I moved on. Start working on the next project, something that will ease me out of the flop. 

Then, I saw an image that spoke in a thousand words, of an ancient civilisation, in a world of magic and technology and prophecies and heroes. 

I saw it in pictures and decided to collaborate with a friend, it’s time I put something out like I always wanted to do. A lasting legacy in print. 

And that was the first epiphany. The next came while thumbing through facebook and checking out groups I have been, and reading all sundry and art related and came up on sites that could have been mine…. Had I put on the grind. 

So here we are, I’m putting on the grind finally. This time, I will be taking my own advice and mulch out a whole new world. 

So, do you know these creatures, that create this vibrations all around us are like little flies, whizzing in and out of dimensions, invisible, saving the day with profound ideas?  Yeah, these epiphanies, they are the subject of my new creative…the unsung heroes of the world… 

It’s a new day. 

Get out

It was a hole from which the ant could never climb out. The sides are just too steep. He staggers up only to slide down.

On and on he goes. He won’t rest. He knew his destiny is out there. His tiny heart could feel it… 

Destiny calls from beyond. Destiny calls from beyond the reef, out in the open  waters. Destiny calls from away from here. 

The need to get out, escape this present crises, this present darkness… The need to get out calls strongly from beyond. 

The walls here are stifling.

The ant, like Moana knew the answers to his present darkness, that’s sweeping all over his world, lies out there…. Beyond the walls of the hole. 

I often wonder why people never left their old life… 

I think it’s the feeling of being stuck, and a resignation to fate. That no matter what they did, they can’t possibly change their final outcome.  

Guess what, you may not be able to change your final outcome but you will never know. You will never know if you are following some script written in the universe, in your star or whatever you believe….you will never know, so it’s best you damn all the freaking consequences and find your way out of the ditch! 

In the ditch, there may be no danger, there might be an ant-lion there, that doesn’t matter, the real danger of staying in that ditch is oblivion

Yep, oblivion will swallow your entire existence, at the end of your time, you will realise how insignificant your life has been and, too weak to weep, you will sigh your last.

Get out now!

It’s never so late to get out of that ditch. Get out while you have the physical, mental and emotional strength. 

You can still be a professor, or an engineer…I know you now have more financial burdens now, I know you made nasty mistakes while growing up…these are excuses, excuses are the slippery sides of the ditch, they keep you down there. 

To get out, you must leverage on your knowledge, of the past and the present. We ought to be learning every moment. Study the traps that keep you down, somehow, they are your way out. 

Life is a negotiation of yesterday and tomorrow. You will have to negotiate the terms, which you will review over and over till you reach your final destination. 

Mankind is not headed for Mars, but Mars seems to be within reach. When we get to Mars we proceed to the next solar system, and on and on we go. 

Life, wasn’t meant to end, ageing is a fault in our genes. We were never meant to die. But we may never know, unless we get out.

I am coming

One for the road

One for the ‘painy’ days

One for the rainy days

One for the time when ‘Iya Moria’s’food was all we looked forward to before the gore. 

One for me in my turbulence, thinking this plane will never take off. 

One for all of us who yearn for a better now.

One for my story that will be told in pages and bold. 

One for all who have and who will contribute to that tale. 

One for me, one for you oh my reader who tries to understand the logic behind this tale. 

It’s a close that leads to a new beginning.

Hit the road, make it happen.
