Hello and welcome to June!. It’s a new month and my question is: what is or are your goals and targets for the month? What do you need to achieve them? Come! Lets work together on your goal.
WHY YOU NEED A GOAL!
Anytime you think about the Big Dream of what Africa or Nigeria can/should be, do not think only from a narrow perspective of Government Monetary Policies, Exchange Rate, Foreign Investment e.t.c. Think of Nigeria’s greatness more from the reality of the fact that the much desired change and transformation will be the story of 1, 10, 100, 1000, 10,000, 100,000 or 1 million or more existing or emerging Entrepreneurs and Generation Leaders; who will “against all odds; develop innovative solutions, products, services and programmes that will drastically improve the lives of the Billions, Millions, or thousands of people in their continent, country or council respectively”.
Africa or Nigeria’s Development story is really your story and my story that we need to begin to take action on.
Imagine Mark Zuckerberg, Aliko Dangote, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Omotola, 2Baba, etc. Think about Nollywood, Ali Baba and the comedy industry. Imagine, just imagine, the stories of Coca Cola, Toyota, Samsung, Nelson Mandela, Covenant University, Pure water, etc.
When you think of the story of Nigeria today, I’m sure you’ll be talking about the actions and inactions of the men and women who have shaped our history. Our history is some peoples’ stories. Like every great movie, the actors, producers, directors are the main figures of a complex and impact-making story line and production and yet, every other character has a unique role that makes up the whole story.
It’s time you embrace the greatness of our nation into your daily personal, professional and social goals so you can become a part of the critical mass of Active Economic Agents whose actions will stimulate unprecedented, uncoordinated yet synchronized collective intelligence that will accelerate our individual productivity, influence our contribution and consumption to develop our commerce and by so doing, our individual well being.
This is what Youthnomics is all about: “...the aspirations of a million minds…”
So what’s your story? If any goal and targets that you set for yourself will become a reality, what goal would you set, what target would your pursue?
SDGs: the well-being of the people, by the people and for the people.”
