“Haven’t left home in 10days.Almost ready to hit the road again.something that has helped me build rapid travel movement muscle is my own little rule.i must come home every 10 days.this means if I need to travel across Lusaka,Kinshasa,or joburg.it’s 2-3days /city then home”.
“I won’t sacrifice my presence at home.Never,if I have to spend more than 2weeks anywhere,Entire clan relocates,kids -10 so it works.Not sure this works when the kids are older,But for now that’s the clan culture.people think it’s weird I fly 13hrs to spend weekends at home”.
“8 years ago obi(then 1.5yrs)never used to see me.So when he started speaking he used to call me mummy.if there was a point where I knew things had to change and I need to prioritise family over everything else.that was it.Never regretted it since”.
“Spending more time with my mum has reinforced this massively too.Firstly af late 30s & early 40s you begin to see parents,aunties &uncles pass on.At first its a trickle.then it’s every month someone you grew up with passes on. For your parents that is actually terrifying”.
“Literally someone around them of similar age is dying every month.if that doesn’t focus the mind on the fragility of life I don’t know what will.At 42 I am statistically at 50% of my life on planet earth (life expectancy is 81). In Nigeria that is 53 (79% there already)”.
“I now know that beyond $1m everything is vanity.Money helps but I know plenty of lonely or bored rich folks.Me? I retire at 50.
So being healthy and spending time with my wife,mum and kids multiple by 100,anything else I achieve,seeing them grow never fails to warm my heart”.
