Today has been an interesting day. This programme has been scheduled and rescheduled a number of times. All i had was a mental picture of who was inviting me. I was going to discover today, that that mental image was wrong. Not only that, today was one of those days where almost everything was going to go gaga…
It was a long week ending yesterday, I was at my boss’ yesternight till about 11pm, we had a gettogether of some sort, I got home to twelf (Not strange, that has been the mode in the last two weeks) I’ve been extremely busy (Doing good things ofcourse). Well I got home, chatted with my wife (I still have time to do that), my baby was asleep (what a pity), after chatting, I plugged my system, and tried to put a presentation together for the outing today. I also read a bit and on an on until about 3am when I started feeling sleepy (me and 3am ehn?) I hadn’t gone far, so I knew I had to wake up a bit early and finish up.
I woke up in the wee hours (not so wee -7am, but it’s saturday, that’s wee) of the day, did my morning routine (it’s in tu-faces lyrics) grabbed some clothes and off to my computer again. I finished it all up nicely, breakfast, bathing, and all happened in the process, I transformed, grabbed my flash and knew I had to hurry if I wasn’t going to be much later than I had aligned I would be. You won’t believe how much time I spent between my house and 300meters away from it (it must have been a consipiracy)
Eventually!(After like 40days and 40nights) I arrived at Glory Worship Center of RCCG. I picked up my phone and rang the number of the young lady that had been calling me to schedule and reschedule all these days and…I was dumbstruck!(What?**!”?) No ways…she was actually MD of a Business Developement outfit (which she owned), she had been on her own for quite some years after haven spent over 10yrs in Andersen Consulting…wow, she wasn’t no young lady. In all fairness she looked young and good, but you can imagine how happy I felt that i had been so nice to her. I wondered what would have happened if I had it in me to talk down to people, I would probably have spoken anyhow, expecting that I’m speaking to this young youthful lady who needed my favour. Thank God- that’s not in my character!
I was happy to see her again…it’s been 3-4years? We were co-facilitators at a seminar on the island then (which reminds me, I’ve actually been doing this forever ;-))
After a few pleasantries, I started my presentation. Wrapped it up in 2hrs and took some questions. It was a day well spent! The crowd was not as much as I would normally like, but these type of crowds are also good, you get to interact with them on a very personal level.
You want to see the presentation??…Watch out for it, I’ll be attaching it soon.
