The Simple Life

24+ Lessons From 2020


2020 has been a very mixed year for many of us. I have had some very extreme lows but it has largely been a great year. I have grown in leaps and bounds, shattered many limitations and shocked myself as I have watched myself. Today I share some of the things I have learnt this year that have made it easier to keep going:

Nothing remains the same forever

The people who walk with you will surprise you

Build your tribe intentionally

You are the only one who can commit to your dream

Tomorrow is a blessing not a guarantee

Men plan but God executes and interrupts

Love is a verb, a choice and a commitment

Money and provision are two very different things

Opportunities come when I am in place working

When you don’t have faith in your abilities, tap into the faith others have in you

Results are the product of diligent, consistent, honest work…not wishful thinking

Take that step and grow yourself; it will pay off later

Show up in the meeting even if you don’t know anyone

Be willing to stand up and stand out

Very few people know what is really going on; be one of them

Read, read, and read some more; you will find something interesting

Gratitude and empathy are the new currency of life

Do the work in private and because you believe in the outcome not because you want people to notice

Your consistency will attract the needed attention, get it right

Be know for what you are good at not for disappointing others

Build your support networks diligently and carefully; you are as good as your tribe

Do at least one thing that scares you every year, ask someone to hold you accountable

The night will always pass; the morning will always come; the sun will always rise

Regular hand washing should have always been mandatory

A mask is a blessing and I will wear it for a long time to come

All things are possible with God and Faith
