Intelligence is the ability to take in information from the world and to find patterns in that information that allow you to organise your perceptions and understand the external world – Brian Greene

We live in the age of information so it’s high time I gave you the low down on this thing called information.

First of all, what is information? Albert Einstein said information is not knowledge! So what is it? Why do we need it? And how should we use it? I’ll briefly try to answer these questions in the simplest way I know. Continue reading

Domains for Trade, Travel and Transport

I’ve always said to my men friends, if you really care for me darling, you will give me territory. Give me land, give me land – Eartha Kitt.

I sometimes wonder if students, professionals, and entrepreneurs ever think deeply enough about territories. A lot of people study, work, and create solutions for organisations that operate in different spaces and territories, yet very few people have any real influence over the territories they live, study, and work in.

Time Management: Made Easy

Dost thou love life, then do not squander time, for that’s the stuff life is made of – Benjamin Franklin

As time is of the essence, I’ve made this a short article on time management. How do you use your time? Do you spend it doing the things you love and the things that add value to your life? Or do you sit and wonder where all your time is going? Continue reading

Good Communication Needs Great Public Relations

The public is the only critic whose opinion is worth anything at all – Mark Twain

In life as well as business, who has come to the conclusion that communication isn’t of much value? I am yet to find someone who has. I write articles mainly for students, professionals and entrepreneurs and try to communicate to them the importance of being well informed enough to make better decisions in their lives and work. But then again, what am I really trying to do? Am I truly interested in what they want or am I simply selling my own skills and promoting my own business?  Do I really want to find a solution to their problems or do I just want to influence their way of thinking and persuade them to accept my ideas as de factoContinue reading

Expert Professional or Entrepreneur? You Choose

My heart goes out to the man who does his work when the “boss” is away, as well as when he is at home – Elbert Hubbard, A Message To Garcia

In a world where people are more concerned about their work and career, I’ve heard a lot of people asking whether they should work for someone else or for themselves. In trying to answer their questions, I have thought it necessary to make them aware of the differences between being the employed and being the employer. I do this because people accomplish more in their work when they are happy at what they do. And to be happy at what you do means feeling totally comfortable with whatever it is you have chosen as your occupation. Continue reading

3 Great Relationships With Money

When it is a question of money, everyone is of the same religion -  Voltaire

Cash! Dough! Wonga!… that little something everyone needs to live the kind of life they want to. It’s a word that’s been on the lips of a lot of people in very recent times. Considering the volatile climate of the financial industry and its impact on the world’s economy, I can imagine why the word money is a recurring theme in almost (if not) everyone’s lives.

Does An Unconventional Education Make You Any Less Educated?

According as each has been educated, so he repents of or glories in his actions -

Spinoza, Ethics, 1677

Since education is an important topic for all, I have become aware of the public perception of who people think an educated person should be or what they should be like. Some groups of people argue that without a traditional kind of education a person cannot be properly educated. Continue reading
