DISTRACTIONS

I rose my eyes in curiosity
Observing the pace of pilgrims
Born with responsibilities
They journey through life

At birth, the blueprint of destiny
Is encoded in their souls
They grow in passion
Sweetly displaying the gifts within

Brilliantly, they align their lives
in a specific direction
With a focused mind
And a heart baptized in zeal
They keep their gaze on their destination

As time rolls by
They grow familiar wiiith their goals
As they say to themselves
" This far have we come
So far we are sure to go
Irrespective of what might be
Hence, let's take a break"

They relax in lethargy
And wallow in the confidence of past glory
While they relapse in achievement
Bathing their journey
in the whirlwind of procrastination

Subtly but firmly
Their attention begins to drift
They now have time for things once considered ephemeral
Misplaced priority rules the day
Dexterity repels them
As they settle for less

Distractions are attractive
Cloned in very strong appeal
They demand immediate attention
They come with strong affection
To override ones initial passion
As your appetite for the otiose
Gradually becomes an obsession

Distractions come in various forms and shades
They totally paralyze your quest
Making you worse than an ostrich in wisdom
Nothing kills greatness as fast as this venom called DISTRACTION

IS RESPECT REALLY RECIPROCAL?

While respect is due regard for the feelings, wishes, or rights of others (Oxford dictionaries.com); the word reciprocal refers to something done, given, felt, or owed in return (The free dictionary.com) The popular phrase "respect is reciprocal" is said to urge people to regard the feelings, wishes or rights of others first, before expecting respect in return. Read: The art of getting along The human nature has the tendency to give back what it gets. Hence, people would averagely respect anyone who respects them. However, there is no guarantee that people would regard your feelings or wishes when they have to make decisions or act. Therefore, it is unreasonable to respect people only because you want respect in return. Having such expectation could lead to hurt when people fail to reciprocate the respect you have offered them.

SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT

Social media has always been there; but not everyone paid close attention or saw the need to set up a profile for themselves or their businesses.   With COVID-19 radically obstructing the norm, more individuals and businesses have woken up to the necessity of having a social media profile.  I believe you have been woke for a very long time or perhaps you are just waking up.
