I had a welcome hamper to finish up. It took most of my time because I had to make every item inside of it. Working on the hampers made me realize how much I love making things. I have had so many disappointments and this year just added to it but I’m trying to pick up momentum and get back in the game.
100 Day Challenge
I have not been able to work on the 100day challenge like I hoped. This week I’ll make more effort to manage my time better.
I took part in the Grant Cardone 10X challenge. Let me tell you something, I learnt so much. It validated some of my ideas and I gained new insights. I feel really motivated.
Today is the final week of HackUrCulture hackathon. We are supposed to present our prototype this week. One valuable thing I have learnt during this hackathon is to trust your instincts. You cannot be sentimental in decision making. It will cost you. I’ll spend the whole day on the prototype while I scout for new team members.
The #ENDSARS protests is ongoing back home. The stories I am reading is truly sad. Nigeria makes it hard for the youths. I was thinking of gathering data on innocent people that have been killed by SARS. Maybe a web app for people to remember their names and hear their stories. One thing with my country is when people make noise today, tomorrow they’ll move on. I just want it to be a virtual memorial. I did work on a template for this years ago but I never got to launch it. Maybe this is the perfect moment.
Spending time on the 10X challenge made me think of starting a podcast. But I want to speak to young people like me. I think it is important for young people to know that failure and challenges are part of life. You will have good, bad and ugly days. What matters is you remain focused on the goal ahead. I want people to know they’re not alone! It’s great hearing stories from celebrities but it would be awesome to listen to your peers and hear how they have been able to navigate their hurdles.
