Dear Readers,

Last month ended on a strong note. I was a panelist at the 1st Universities SDGs Summit held at Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.The event organized by CENDAL Nigeria, Follow Taxes, & Connected Development, had a total number of 1,487 attendees from 8 Universities, 13 Organizations and 3 Secondary schools across the geopolitical zones of Nigeria.

I was privileged to speak on things we need to amplify in order to achieve the SDGs come 2030. One of the points I emphasized is the need to be genuinely passionate about what we do so that we do not run out of steam easily, or give up because the ‘credit’ isn’t coming our way all the time.I have discovered that people work better once they do not care who gets the credit. Although there are exceptions to this statement, but, ponder on it.

It’s yet another month. It’s another beginning. What do you want to do differently?

Happy New Month.

  1. It is very true,i had discovered this fact some years back,that people work better when they don’t care who get the credit but the greed of some, especially those that don’t have much to contribute always get in the way of progress because they want all the accolades. What then can one do with such persons?

      1. Confront them about misplaced priorities
      2. In clear terms, tell them how it should be, going forward.
      3. Give them another chance, it’s called benefit of the doubt. If they prove unrepentant, then, do away with them, unless you are ready to ignore.

      If persons involved are those you can’t approach, just find a way to avoid working with them for your peace of mind, unless you don’t mind.

  2. Hello! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this page to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!
