Who would you die for?

Written by

A human body is in built with a safety radar of sorts. Whenever exposed to any life-threatening event, the body’s safety mechanisms are initiated. You suddenly feel very alert and strong with each of the blood in your veins pumping faster, until you are out of the danger zone. That is what I felt when something that transformed my thinking happened.

What is your cause?

Written by

Uganda Martyrs1

2 Timothy 3:12 “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.”


A martyr / witness, is defined as “someone who suffers persecution and death for advocating, renouncing, refusing to renounce, or cause as demanded by an external party. This refusal to comply with the presented demands results in the execution of the person by the oppressor.”

If you lack values, it is not easy to have a cause. If you are not a Christian, you cannot become a Christian Martyr.  Today, we celebrate the brave 55 people who gave up their lives for what they believed in. Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Hit the iron while it is still hot

Written by

Hot iron804x507

Are you a leader? It is advisable that you hit the iron while it is still hot. When you wait for it to cool, however hard you try to hit it, getting it to a shape you want takes a lot of time and energy, if at all you can manage. You must be agile and act fast.

The same applies to tapping into business opportunities. If you delay, someone else will take them.

“She turned to me, looked directly in my eyes and said, ‘I am sick of hearing your heavy breathing at night.” What words are you saying to your loved ones?

During one of the married couples’ meetings at Church which I am privileged to have facilitated, I separated the women from the men, and asked each member to pick a partner of the same sex and be open about their best and worst experiences in their marriages and the specific behaviors that led to them. The revelations were life changing.

Luck is useless if it lands on the unprepared.

As they say, if you want to win a lottery ticket, first go and buy the ticket! However, lucky you might be, without having bought the lottery ticket. There is no way you are going to win.

What are your top four must-win-battles?

Written by

You cannot be everywhere and succeed. You must select your top three to four must-win-battles and focus all your energy and resources there. It is not easy to win so many battles.

In 2010, I had a heated debate with my wife over the family priorities. We decided to review our responsibility centers to minimize interruptions but also optimize skills. As an equal partner in our family affairs, we agreed that she is responsible for all the operational and tactical decisions in the home – family menu (what to eat and when), look and feel (the furniture in our home, which clothes to wear, which car to drive) and managing home affairs (hiring and managing family help and the like).

The Bible lessons for your success

Written by

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened,” Mathew 7: 7 - 8

“Our systems are very strong. We cannot have been hacked. You are just alarmists. On your bullet number five: that you were able to capture all our passwords, including of the super administrator? That is not possible.” Such is the typical conversation in Uganda during the end of cyber security testing exit meeting with the client. It does not matter that we usually demonstrate the weaknesses found to the IT team. During the exit meeting presentation, IT staff will always deny even the smoking gun or plain view evidence. Many times, we pull out the laptop and re-demonstrate the exploits again. The fact is, with technology, there is no system that is 100% safe. That is why even Microsoft keeps providing system updates to respond to vulnerabilities that keep coming up now and again.

Achieve your personal potential

Written by

Who are you? The first step in achieving your potential is to know who you are. Where do you come from? what are your family values? Do not try to be something you are not and expect to win. Appreciate your background and first make peace with it. Acknowledge your identity.

What are your priorities?

Written by

Now that you know who you are, the next step is to ask what does success mean to you, and your key stakeholders.

Your family, relatives, friends and community are critical. At each stage of your life, who are those people with a lot of influence (in your career choice) and interest (in your success?)

Stories of successful executives in Kampala who have forgotten about their parents and close relatives in the village abound. These people come to Kampala, adopt different culture, network with new friends and forget completely about their family back home. It is not until they experience a misfortune like a loss of a relative that they visit the village and get exposed. Rich in the city, but no place to even place a casket back home! What a shame! First know who you are (see figure 1).
