I have a friend who loves to dream up grand ideas. I’m always in awe of him when he comes up with this big idea after another; he just makes you look like a lazy donkey. But when it comes to implementing his ideas, the same ‘he’ would bring up hundred reasons why it won’t work citing valid reasons that actually make sense. Each time we get into an argument about a grand idea once again tossed into the waste basket, I end up looking like the one without foresight.
The truth is: problems are everywhere. Heck, I can count ten reasons why I shouldn’t leave my bed
every morning. But I do anyway despite that Lagos roads are bad, the drivers are crazy, my car can veer off the road and tumble into a ditch and I may not even achieve what I set out to achieve and waste an entire day. Does that stop me from leaving my bed in the morning?
