The problem with complainingLe problème lorsque l’on commence à se plaindre

Le problème lorsque l’on commence à ce plaindre, c’est que :

  • l’on se désarme face à l’obstacle,
  • l’on se met dans une position dans laquelle l’obstache ne peu être vue comme une opportunité,
  • l’opportunité ne peut être saisi car l’on souhaiterait résoudre ce qui a causé notre état grognon,
  • l’on oublie que tout un chacun à une ou plusieurs raisons de se plaindre
  • l’on est capable de trouver matière à se plaindre après la résolution de la première plainte
  • l’on oublie qu’on a possède un atout, notre capacité d’adatption.

Starting earlier increase success chance Commencer tôt augmente les chances de réussite

Most of the time people think : « as soon as i change my situation i’ll start my project » or « when my children will be 18 i could start my project » or « After my graduation I’ll take 3 month off to start a project ». This is what i call « the don’t want to move ahead excuse strategy ». People should write down their project even if they don’t want (or can’t) to execute it. Writing down a project is just starting it. Starting a project can help you find out your real needs. Most of the time you discover you need less stuff you though. But the more interesting is that the earlier you start more chance you have to succeed.

Your todo-list should be your first managerVotre todo-list est votre premier manager

Most of the time, feeling busy is a result of bad organization. We all need a todo list. Planning what you have to do make you do the right thing at the right time. whatever the system you use, please make a todolist. This are some successful methods :

You just have to choose the system you can access every day without making any effort. Not everybody need an online solution. Me for example i’m using Note Tomboy. this system is available on Ubuntu and is easy. I know and already tried tens of online systems but couldn’t use them for long time.

If you’re not using a todolist system, that means you lost lot of time trying to find the next action you have to take. This situation can make you think you need more than 24h in the day.

Mr Effry and the Ivorian Cybercafé syndicate !Mr Effry et le syndicat des cybercafé de Côte d’Ivoire

Let me introduce you Mr Effry from Koumassi (Abidjan).

I met him a barcamp abidjan 2010. This guy is amazingly genius. Native of Congo Kinshasa, he couldn’t be the responsible of the 750 cyber-cafés owners who subcribed to the Ivorian Cyber-café Syndicate. But he is so far the most active member of this organization. This guy has also made a french-Lingala dictionary. his dictionary is not an usual one because it deals whith the Lingala spoken in Kinshasa but not in other cities of the country. I’m on my way to meet him since à want to know more about this syndicate activities and also about Mr Effry’s ones. Yeah, let me tell you that he has also made an innovative concept of aquarium. I Will put some pics later on.Lorsque vous rencontrez Mr Effry pour la première fois, vous ne pouvez pas ne pas avoir des frissons.

En effet en plus d’être le membre le plus actif du Syndicat des cyber-café de Côte d’Ivoire il est aussi un inventeur. Jusque là tout parait normal, mais lorsque ce monsieur vous sort sa panoplie de créations, vous êtes obligé de rester bouche B. De son concept d’aquarium innovant à toutes ces maquettes d’avions miniatures en passant par ses objets communiquant uniques, il y a de quoi rester sans mot. Je pars le rencontrer aujoud’hui et j’espère avoir des photos de quelques une de ses créations.

what do you need to make it ?De quoi avez-vous besoin ?

Ok in western africa not every engineering student has a computer. Ok in western africa only few people have INTERNET access. Not ok that in western africa one can’t make a killer app for the web or the mobile. Becoming a web entrepreneur with a killer app is not a matter of stuff. You just need to have an idea to start. You must have write it down on a paper. Yes it’s all about writing things down. An idea kept in head wont never be a killer app nor a successful company. T.D an I went to a IT engineering school this week. When we asked students if they have ever done or muck-up a personal project, the answer was a big NO. Hey, young developer, what do you need to make things happen ?

Why ?Pourquoi ?

Since 2006 i’m posting on facebook. My post are getting more and more longer and there more and more comments. Now i passed the authorized 5000 contacts on facebook and i’v still about 400 friend requests. This are reasons WHY i decided to launch a blog using my facebook profile name as url. I’v also set up a facebook fan page which is connected to this blog and let more people follow my posts. From now people dont need to be on facebook to follow or react on my posts. I also connected my facebook account to this blog. My twitter, linkedin, viadeo accounts are also connected to this blog. I’ll take any advices from long time bloggers. Since i’v already tried to maintain some blogs without success, my posts on this one will be like my facebook posts (short with less than 10 sentences). But if i can do more, why not ?
