You will know of Steve Jobs, CEO and maker of iPad…iPhone etc.
He died a billionaire at 56yrs of Pancreatic Cancer and here are his last words on the sick bed:
“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes my life is an epitome of success.
However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.
At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and
wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.
You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.
Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – “Life”.
When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – “Book of Healthy Life”.
Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.
Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends…
Treat yourself well. Cherish others.
As we grow older, and hence wiser, we slowly realize that wearing a $300 or $30 watch – they both tell the same time…
Whether we carry a $300 or $30 wallet/handbag – the amount of money inside is the same;
Whether we drive a $150,000 car or a $30,000 car, the road and distance is the same, and we get to the same destination.
Whether we drink a bottle of $300 or $10 wine – the hangover is the same;
Whether the house we live in is 300 or 3000 sq ft – loneliness is the same.
You will realize, your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world.
Whether you fly first or economy class, if the plane goes down – you go down with it…
Therefore.. I hope you realize, when you have mates, buddies and old friends, brothers and sisters, who you chat with, laugh with, talk with, have sing songs with, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven and earth, …. That is true happiness!!

LIFE ADJUSTMENTS AND THE PAIN OF LOSING A JOB
They say losing a loved one through death is the most difficult thing to deal with in life, but I’m of the opinion losing a job ranks somewhere just behind it. I have been in both situations, I know how it feels.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTXaiVcn3OY
Many of us young employees suffer after the sack, because of denial; we’ve been born and brought up in a society that embraces less of honesty, and more of putting up a brave face, even in instances where we are evidently struggling to walk in a smaller shoe.
Our problem is in always wanting to look the part, yet our steady income is no more.
You are not alone, as this happens to older members of our society too; those whose savings can sustain them through months and years of joblessness are also victims.
One thing we forget during this time though, must be the fact that luxuries remain a useless part of our lives, even when you can afford them for one simple reason; you have nothing to replenish your coffers at that time.
Now, last year at a time like this, I had already lost my job.
All I was waiting for between now and when my position was completely rendered redundant, were formalities like clearing with the various departmental heads, and processing of my final payout.
Then boom! That day came, and I was let go.
Between the formalities and when I was finally released to the ‘freelance world’, the gravity of my loss hadn’t sunk in yet.rao odinga
I hadn’t realised it was an election year full of uncertainties. It took me time to accept the fact that a lot of what I enjoyed before, were luxuries I could still do well without. You see, I haven’t died!
The organisation I had sold my time to, was tossing out almost a hundred of us (mostly below the age of 35). Many of us had known each other as colleagues, traversed the continent together (in the line of duty), gotten married and, or become parents while working for the same entity (since March 2009).
As a consequence of the above circumstances, there was this illusion all over my mind, and I believe many of my young colleagues’ too, that we would create this big, vibrant club for the jobless to continue checking on each other everyday.
You know the camaraderie that comes with having met on your first jobs and grown together for all those years – But then sh*t became real over some time…
Luckily, I had very important strings to hold on to. I had a proper support system in friends, family, and a not-so-rossy past (my childhood) that gave me a proper taste of what anyone would face. I still remain thankful for all these to date.
Early enough in the process, I made really tough life choices that included shelving my own cherished plans. Instead of liquidating my assets, I thought of other ways of mitigating against the effects of my job loss.
I decided to defer my own university studies, instead of my children staying out of school, move from the mansion* I occupied to a smaller crib, and cut down greatly on luxuries.
Luckily again, I had already quit alcohol like 2 years before the chop, it was as though I had prepared myself for that future!heroic entry of odinga in kisumu
Today, I am happy because of the tough decisions I made then, in making adjustments to my daily Life- In fact, it is from that transition that I have come to realise how wasteful I was before.
I’m writing this because I personally know many who are either serving notices, already out of a job and have written enough applications to no avail or staring at a sack now.
It is also not like the “Biashara Guys” have had a ‘Cinderella run’ since the last 3 – 4 years. No! They are struggling too. Things are tough on many young Kenyans today, even those with whom you dance and drink copious amounts of whisky everyday. Some are, in fact, hiding in that what you keep calling fun.
Imagine only the tough ones like you and I can wade through such storms – However, you only triumph by deliberately committing to reducing the load, and by this I mean making meaningful adjustments to your daily life now; forgo certain habits and comforts immediately after you finish reading me.
Perhaps most importantly, you should open up to others on your problem. Lack of a job should be public almost like pregnancies are, so that those who can help you will know what applications or opportunities to throw our way.
Whether you have an extra mouth to feed or your only babies live inside you, it is still far from being the easiest of experiences to bear. Therefore, don’t wait for it to humble you, because it often does so after stripping you of your dignity.
Ever wondered why some people have found life worthless?
It’s not easy to tolerate falling once, and with a thud, from a life full of luxuries to become a scavenger for basic needs.
Sometimes you may miss the little daily blessings you often took forgranted; you may miss the comfort of a running water dispenser, the smell of frying onions, burning gas, the minutes spent under the hot water shower, TAXI rides, and your favourite restaurant or beer brand. It’s not easy but imagine you have to do it.
Losing a job might make you start appreciating the little things you never gave a damn about; this when random thoughts bombard your head; you might start thinking of petitioning Safaricom to increase the number of “Please Call Me” texts or resolve to design appreciation certificates for inventors of “Okoa Jahazi”, “Okoa Stima” or “M-shwari” when you get stable – And when things get really tough, you may end up hating everything, including swallowing your own saliva.
Therefore Chin up. Plan the little you have today. Adjust where necessary. Open up to those who can help. Do not fear what other people will say, coz nothing under the sun is permanent.
Just like mine, your comeback is nigh!

Pardon me for interrupting your morning. I know well you are still honeymooning after taking the oath of office as the People’s President of Kenya. I hope this letter finds you in fine fettles nevertheless. Baba, before I say anything, allow me to readily confess that what you did on January 31, 2018, will forever remain indelible not only in the hearts of your supporters, but also on the minds of your haters. The oath you took confirmed that you are too positive to be doubtful, too determined to be defeated and too optimistic to be fearful. You are the only man with the balls of steel.
Sir, since I was birthed around thirty something years ago, I have never seen a man as mettlesome as you. I have never seen a man as unintimidated as you. I have never seen a man as unblinking as you. I have never seen a man with such unshrinking balls of steel as yours. I have never seen a man as untroubled as you. Baba, where did you summon all the unafraidness from to lift that Bible and swear allegiance to the people? How the hell did you gather all the courage to commit such a treasonable crime lionheartedly knowing well if pronounced culpable, guilty the penalty is death?nasa tibim
Sincerely, what you did on Tuesday left me discombobulated. Uhuru Kenyatta was discombobulated. Museveni was discombobulated. Mugabe was discombobulated. Kagame was discombobulated. Trump was discombobulated. Atwoli was discombobulated. Putin was discombobulated. In fact, Kalonzo too, was discombobulated.
You knew well there were thousands of policemen deployed at Uhuru Park to harass, dehumanize, maim and even kill you and your people but you still woke up and headed there. They say fame is a strange thing. Some men gain it when they die, while others just fade. You have conquered all odds and earned it while still alive. History shall be kind to you some day because you have written it. We will never forget January 31, 2018.
Baba, by bravely lifting that Bible and taking oath as administered by Ruaraka MP T.J. Kajwang and witnessed by senior counsel Miguna Miguna, you buried our shackles of perpetual slavery. You restored the inalienable right of the great people of Kenya to elect a leader of their choice under a free, fair, peaceful and credible election. Like you always say, the victory is not yours. The victory is for the valiant people of Kenya. Thank you for representing the new face of true democracy in our great nation.
Baba, the moment you pronounced those four little but powerful words “I Raila Amolo Odinga” your majestic presence displayed a rich pedigree with royal courage. Thank you for your immaculate heart. You are wiser. When government deployed thousands of police at Uhuru Park to entrammel your colourful inauguration ceremony, millions of fearless Kenyans thronged in your defence. They showed resistance and now they are proud of it. They were no cowed by Rungus and guns. When the people arrived, they thundered and members of the business community and the government chickened and fled with their machetes. Nothing could scare the hell out of the people and make them abandon their mandate.
You are the true anti-corruption crusader. You hate corruption with a passion. You take on both the high and the mighty that oppress the poor. You fearlessly faceoff with senior government officials who catch the corruption bug that manifests in wastage, indiscipline, illegality and outright diversion of budgetary allocations. Thank you for voicing your opinion freely in defense of free speech and expression. Thank you for always striving to get your facts right before venturing to take any action. We all know that most of your claims are incomplete without buttressing them with unassailable facts and figures. On behalf of the oppressed, allow me to thank you for fighting for the progress of our country.
I wish you well Sir.
Albert Nyakundi Amenya aka the Banana Peddler
A couple of weeks ago, I was with some friends discussing about life in general. One of my guys made a very strong statement that ” money has relocated to a strange land” and since then I have been doing some research on finding where exactly this strange land is.
After my thorough research and survey, I finally found where money has relocated to. Believe me, truly money is no longer where it use to be, it is in the strangest of all places that one can ever imagine.subscribe to our TV
I would like to share my findings with you. If you don’t mind taking some time to read on.
Just this evening before I decided to put this piece up, I came across a similar write up with almost the same view as my findings and I thought it is time to share my little findings with you all.
A lot of us educated folks are busy looking for a pay job here and there everyday. But the truth is the world of work is shrinking by the day and as such there are no jobs to absorb the number of graduates been produced by our universities any longer.
The government CAN NOT and WILL NOT create jobs any more.LIVE VIDEOS HERE
Truth be told, our universities are just reproducing job seekers and not job creators. They train you to become employees and not employers; be cause our learning syllabus has not changed and it is the same old stuff they keep doing over the years.
The white collar jobs are no longer there, they are disappearing everyday. In fact the bankers will tell you, that there is nothing special in the banking sector any more. The counter is becoming empty and the queue are becoming longer in the banks, simply because they can not pay staffs any longer.
These are facts we know. Some years back, we saw how banks were making every other job look inferior and one would wish if only I can get a bank job I will be made. Today the case is different banks are downsizing and has become a pitiable profession and same as other sectors.
Now straight to my point; money is now found in entrepreneurship and skilled jobs.
The mechanic who calls you Oga sir, makes at least 2000 to 3000 for fixing your car, so if he fixes an average of 3 cars, he goes home with at least 7000 plus. In a month, he makes a minimum of 150 to 200k. Yes he call you Oga. He has built his house from calling you Oga and you the oga can’t even afford to pay your rent any more.
The woman who sells food by the road side(mama kibanda), makes a profit of of 2000 to 3000 on a daily basis and in a month makes a minimum of 60 to 90k.
The man who sells water using mukokoteni makes 1000 a day and sometimes 1200 so in month he makes 30k.MONEY ONLINE
The taxi driver take you from Nairobi cbd to Airport and collects 6k per drop in a day he does 2 to 3 trips and goes home to save 5k daily; in a month he makes over 100k.
My point is, there is still money in the economy but not where is used to be. It is hidden in businesses you will never thought of doing. But trust me ,that is where the money is now.
Stop looking for white collar jobs and dirty yourself.
Start that business and grow it over time. Don’t keep waiting and wasting. Start that fish farming, poultry, rabbit keeping, soap making, fashion and design, laundry, flower garden, farming etc.
This is where the money you have been looking for has relocated to. Remove that suit and tie that is suffocating you; so you don’t commit suicide and pick up that job.
Who cares if you are a mechanic, at least you can pay the bills. That is what matters. So dirty your hands my good friend and put food on the table. Stay blessed….let those who have ears hear and act,God bless you
