Why I’m Not “Good People”

The notions behind being good and bad…

Jenny's Library

I’m not a nice person.

I’m not a good person.

I’m not a kind person.

This isn’t to say that I don’t ever try to be any of these three things.  I do, especially the last two.

It’s more to say that, for me, surviving in this cissexist, racist, ableist, heteronormative, classist, often fucked up world of ours has involved rejecting the idea that “good” and “bad” are static states of being.  I will never be a “good person” because, to me, “good” is not something that you achieve.  It’s an ongoing process that never ends.

It is, in fact, almost impossible not to be doing bad things as well as good when you are human and therefore flawed.  Especially when you are part of a messed up system, as we all are.

This, to me, is why it’s important to call out bad behavior, or hurtful language, or even…

You are your time- Part 1


There is something about time we all don’t take note of.
YOUR ABILITY  TO manage your time, as much as any other practice in your career as an executive, will determine your success or failure. Time is the one indispensable and irre- placeable resource of accomplishment. It is your most pre- cious asset. It cannot be saved, nor can it be recovered once lost.
However… It is possible for you to gain two productive hours each working day, or even double your output and your produc- tivity.  Some techniques have proven successful for many thou- sands of executives in every field of endeavor, and they will prove successful for you, too, as long as you have what I call the four Ds.
The Four Ds of Effectiveness
The first D is desire: You must have an intense, burning desire to get your time under control and to achieve maxi- mum effectiveness.
The second D is decisiveness: You must make a clear deci- sion that you are going to practice good time management techniques until they become a habit.
The third D stands for determination:You must be willing to persist in the face of all temptations to the contrary until you have become an effective time manager. Your desire will reinforce your determination.
And finally, the most important key to success in life, the fourth D, is discipline: You must discipline yourself to make time management a lifelong practice. Effective discipline is the willingness to force yourself to pay the price, and to do what you know you should do, when you should do it,
Do What You Can, with What You Have, Right Where You Are
You should say to yourself, “My life is precious and impor- tant, and I value every single minute and hour of it. I am going to use those hours properly so that I accomplish the most I can, in the time that I have.”
The good news is that time management is a business skill, and all business skills are learnable. Time management is like riding a bicycle, typing on a keyboard, or playing a sport. It is made up of a series of methods, strategies, and techniques. It is a skill set that you can learn, practice, and master with determination and repetition… SHUN AFRICAN TIME…. IT KILLS YOUR CAREER FASTER
Please do learn how to use your time effectively…
Have a great week ahead.

Your friend: Ayoray



The place of secret
The home of intentions
The dark room of power
The foundation of thoughts

The feeling for greatness
The passion to break to boom
The eruption of ideas
The foresight of dreams

The positiveness of being
The determination for change
The compass to destinations
The zest to put smiles on the faces of others

LISTEN!!! All this features, I’m not listing them to sweet talk you, neither am I lecturing you on poems. I’m simply reminding you of your responsibility to EXPLORE THE MIGHTS OF YOUR MIND that propels you to IRRESISTIBLE ACTION.

Oh!!!… Maybe you need to be reminded
Maybe you need a knock on your head
Maybe you actually need to see a doctor
Or probably you read my lips– IT LIES IN YOUR HANDS

You might need to know that you ain’t one of the chickens, you are one of the EAGLES- You are meant for change, meant to soar high in the sky, meant to break through limitations, meant to offer your arm to the people in need, meant to make an indelible path through your own tread . But What have we done? What have you done?… We under use the Eagle’s features in us due to FEAR, due to MISUSE, due to EXCUSE

What is going on in that beautiful mind of yours?
I am sure that IMPULSE has been there for a long time and u need just a word to START ACTING, SHUN EXCUSES, LEARN YOUR FAILURES. Don’t be scared,its in YOU, the WORLD is waiting for you…. Your countenance is honourable than your container.

See, the only way to prove your self is to better yourself… Be the DOER because you deserve better. DO NOT look at where you are, look at where you can be.
Get a goal, Get a plan, Get up off your ass and KICK OFF then KEEP KEEPING ON…
See You At The Top…And God bless you.

Scary and terrible looks
Heavy foot of a dinosaur
Weary and obsolete face
What a horrible appearance

Omnivorous in nature with fearful teeth
Strong jaws related to a dog and raccoon
Shaggy hair and small tail of a bear
Flat four feet with abundant muscles

My heart begins to beat 20times faster
My feet begins to shake vigorously
Sweats running down my skin
Internal temperatures increases steadily

I couldn’t move an inch
Oops,my feet has been glued to earth
I begin to develop mental stress
At this time, I knew the bear would devour me angrily.

Closer and closer it moves to me
Confidently walking closer
Waging its tail and getting ready to host its mouth for breakfast

The bear was few steps in my front
The bear was furious I didn’t budge
Its mind kept on ruminating my actions
The bear’s confidence began to fade away

My fear multiplied
My mind desire suicide
My leg compromises its relevance
Amazingly, I was still STANDING

At a point, I couldn’t hold the stagnant position
Instead of looking back,I took a step forward
Surprisingly, the bear stopped walking towards me
I didn’t have an idea the bear’s plans

Instinct initiated another step forward
OMG! The bear took another step backward
Then I took 3steps forward
The bear was in return clueless of my plans

The bear got confused and looked back
When I prompted a step again,it had already taken many steps backward
By this time, I was relieved of my fear.

The best in you comes with so much struggles, hardship, pains,debris, faustrations, disappointments but the only way you can be the best in YOU is CHALLENGE the fear in YOU.


Sweet Night To You…*smile*

The sun has retreated fast in the day
The day is through with its obligations
The sky begins to shed its color like a snake
The clouds rumpled in an organised way

The sky divvy into two
The sky with little stars
The sky with clouds
And in the middle, lies the moon

As the clock ticks
The birds gets fast asleep
The frogs ……… ….. … …. ….
And the happy fireflies rushes out into the atmosphere and begin to dance.

The breeze begin to get colder
The sounds gets even more sonorous
The dew treads its way down to the earth
And the moon gets brighter

Both skies was segregated
While they both moved in their own directions.
The sky with stars has myriad stars
Its color was unique and perfect

Cloudy sky spreads so wide like the ocean
It was white,pure and beautiful
It moves away like ripples on waters
Letting the moon have its way

Apparently, I saw a bird flying across the moon
The cloudy sky approached the moon again and covered it slowly
The moon could not regain its sight anymore
It became dark and dark and dark
Everywhere was dark and it was night…

I just wanna say good night in a special way…
And wish you a night full of sweet dreams.

I am sure you already have a glimpse of what this writeup entails. Well… Let’s see

An old friend saw me walking along the road one noon and she stopped to talk to me. See what she said… ” how are you… Long time no see… You have almost forgotten me… I do see you but most times YOU ARE ALWAYS ON THE MOVE…” Then I smiled.

The next day, I walked that road and remembered the previous experience and something strucked me immediately….MOVEMENT!!!

Wait!!! When was the last time you further a CAUSE by taking ACTION, when was the last time you STRETCH a CAUSE, when was the last time you SCRUTINISE a COMPLIMENT?

We all walk( work) but at a point we might decide to sit( rest)…. Both are pertinent but how well do we balance them?
Do we walk more or sit more?

Do not spend all day sitting… All you need is to STAND before you can MOVE, you ain’t a STATUE… You ain’t MASS PRODUCED… You are born to MOVE

Look at the lives of snails… Don’t they move? Of course they do but they move with a very slow pace, they move from an unfavourable place to places of CHOICE. Remember that the journey of a mile begins with A STEP.

Find something to do… MOVE!!! MOVE!!!
An idle hand is the devil’s workshop. Be the DO-ER…

Its until you STAND that you can STAND. If you don’t stand now, there is no way you will stand tomorrow…Do you think you will be able to do those things you are suppose to do now at the age of 90 ? Hell No. it will be too late.

I strongly and intentionally dare you to MOVE!!!….. MOVE and don’t forget to also MOVE and share this piece…
*Smiles*… Have a fruitful day of MOVEMENT.

Word of the day: Be diligent in your doings and STAND before kings.

A guy chatted me sometimes on how his girlfriend left him. He said they were together one day talking about one other guy which they both know (but made known to the girl by phone). The boyfriend certified that the guy is a good writer, he draws and he sings well.

After the conversations, the girlfriend said “I WANT TO MEET THAT GUY” like seriously…. “I WANT TO MEET HIM”

And then I was pondering about what prompted the statement… The boyfriend was good looking quite alright, he satisfies the lady and they both were always happy….

Hmmm… I guess my noble readers are eager to know why she said that statement and what her intentions are…

It wasn’t that the lady wasn’t satisfied with the guy, she knew that there was nothing the boyfriend won’t do to make her happy… But then, something DISTINCT prompted the statement, something DIFFERENT, something FAR BEYOND ORDINARY and “COMMON”

The boyfriend didn’t know this until he was left behind… “Such is life”

Listen to this… There is a need for you to know what you are good at, you can’t just keep doing the same thing “ALL GUYS DO” , there has to be something that DEFINES you, there has to be something that goes to REPRESENT you before your PRESENCE.

What can you do? …. If NO answer…
Then everything that comes your way will look to you as if its what you want. There is something about the guy that has been harnessed and well coordinated, he has a FOCUS(follow one course until success), he has a DEFINITE AND WELL DEFINED DRIVE

Then I thought within myself what that SOMETHING could be…. SEEDS OF HARNESSED PASSION. Passion for a particular thing emanates from a feeling to explore a discovered habit (the seed). The ability to coordinate these seeds and make them DEFINITE and SPECIFIC makes GREATNESS. ( YOU CANT ACHIEVE EVERYTHING)

That was exactly what she saw in that guy …. THE DEFINITE SEED FOR GREATNESS RESULTING FROM A DIFFERENCE.

Word of the day: don’t EVER be scared to be DIFFERENT… DARE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE (M.A.D)

*Smiles*… If you have been blessed by this piece… Why not Re-BC and let others share in your blessing. Thanks and I wish you a great day… Make sure you are very happy today. Its highly pertinent.

Truth not heresy
I am AyoRay
Thanks for reading…
