Rome was not built in one day, stupid! You cannot seek to create a real estate empire in two years. Corruption, pilferage, scheming – the ‘get rich attitude un-anchored by real talent’ is a disease that is getting more genetically perverse among our youth.
One cataclysmic event should not decimate your resolve to thrive – when you fall, even if you do so a dozen times, pick your ass up, learn and move on. Do not tie onto relationships or projects or visions that have terminally failed.
With his permission, we are serialising and publishing on our CPAR Uganda Ltd website and social media platforms these lessons for success that were first shared by Dr. Roy William Mayega, on Friday, 2nd October 2020, on his Facebook wall. He accompanied them with the following explanatory introduction:
“I have been working with relatively young people (below 40 years of age) and in my interactions with them, I have found 10 skills that prevent many of them from becoming a beacon of professionalism. Skills not formally taught in school yet so vital. Skills that would transform a young professional into a ‘hot cake’ for inclusion in successful enterprises… As for those of us 40 years and above, I have no advice. Our kind is already irredeemably hardwired in our stupidities.”Dr. William Roy Mayega, a Lecturer in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, a the School of Public Health Makerere University Kampala
