Ok so you’ve made up your mind you wana be successful and you’ve decided enough is enough and it’s time to go to the next level. That’s good. Congratulations on that decision. But the decision alone is not enough.


See just like a farmer who decides to go farming will not achieve his purpose UNLESS HE HAS THE NECESSARY TOOLS for his mission. Before he can reap a bumper harvest, he will require Labour, tools, fertiliser, seeds and of course a fertile land. And even after planting he must continuously irrigate and weed his field till harvest time…


Same Principle applies with life. when you decide it’s time to move on, it’s time to go to the next level, there are a couple of things you will need to put in place to reach your destination.


You will need a good work ethic, which implies honesty to yourself and fairness to others, you will require commitment, patience hard work, endurance (especially in bad and trying times), you will need good people and negotiations skills, a right attitude, e.t.c. And the list is endless…


Above all you will require GOOD TIMING AND EFFICIENT PLANNING….


Muntu wandi without these two tools, better stay home drinking ama Jameson yobe, coz your effort will worthless.


Timing implies knowing what is happening around you, a perfect and conscious awareness of the people who are your main target for your business, an understanding of your environment and a conscious educated guess of what might work or screw you up. Like right now, I don’t have to be a genius to know if I ordered solar bulbs, or gas stoves or rechargeable lamps i would easily make a quick buck because I know loadshedding is just beginning and two, those things don’t get rotten even if they stay 3 months teti fibole!


Planning goes with knowing when to execute what you have timed.  Women are good at timing men. They see you smiling for no apparent reason like a PF cadre after a By-Election ninshi baisha  ati apa nashingila, let me ask him mambala teti antane.


Same implies muntu wandi, mu life kukwata timing iye ule. A prostitute knows if she approaches you kuma 20 koloko, you will see the scars and the difference in colour in between her face and knees and so she waits for 23 hours, ninshi Jameson naiku kwapula, you busy dancing to every song on the dance flour and then like a cool breeze, she will gently approch and say “hi ba brother” and smile at you, the same beast with one tooth who looked like she can act in a horror movie without a mask would have been miraculously rebased into a virgin and by the time you are realizing what’s happening, ninshi ni kolopa dot com!


Am not saying go and be ama ule or drink Jameson, awe, am just trying to reinforce a point to say planning and timing in life is everything, it’s essential, it’s the fuel for your business and ideas. Even the bible in Ecclesiastical say “There is time for everything”…Just like if you ask a man for something ninshi nakwata pressure or his rent his due and nakaba trying to figure out were to get money,  Kuti akuponona like that teacher Mr Sichilongo who f****** up a Holy Nun when she locked his house with two small starving kids. Am not encouraging GBV but that was wrong timing. Or just like when you see pimples on a girls face and she isn’t smiling and alesasuka-sasuka for no reason and you don’t get it that the visitors have arrived and like an amateur, you stupidly ask her for a date, muntu wandi you will get the shock answer of your life. She will remind you how foolish you, your ancestors and every male in your family including those that are not born are! Don’t blame her, you picked the wrong horse at the worst time…


Timing timing timing bantu bandi.. muntu wandi, if you want to score big, know what time it is…


They say if you fail to plan, you are planning to fail…..


Good luck and plan well bantu bandi…
