You cannot be, I know, nor do I wish to see you, an inactive spectator. ... We have too many high-sounding words, and too few actions that correspond with them.

Welcome to the 49th edition of the MayWeather Newsletter series, a weekly newsletter where I share my thoughts and new ideas on things that I learn on personal productivity; somewhere between due diligence, good thinking and note-taking.
<<First Name>>, I can boldly say that your support has been an inspiration and most importantly, my reward. Having to iterate different styles of driving home a point and your consistent interaction is a big deal!
I wondered why some newsletters performed more than others and it’s safe to say that we all become a creative channel to the degree at which we listen to and follow our intuition.
You have taught me how to connect the dots in – between deep – seated thoughts. By following my intuition.
I have come to learn that by intuition, we all know the road to success and by training it, we strengthen our individual commitment to trust ourselves to do more.
If you’ve ever had a reason to part away with $$ to “invest”, you must have heard your lead tell you to do your own research. This is because without intuition, research is incomplete. Information has never been enough. When you source for information in your day – to – day life, check in with yourself to see what feels intuitively right and do your best to follow through.
You know that special feeling when you are busy creating elements in a world of possibilities? You can’t even fake it. That’s what makes your work inspiring. It sets your work apart.
When this happens, you will naturally:
• find yourself flowing with the right energy, and
• do what you really want to do.
In the face of difficulty, you’d find the perfect reason to show up and the perfect place to express your creativity and make a wholesome contribution to your community.
One more thing: everything about your life may change. You might find a new course to chart.
Follow intuitively and maintain your focus.
Weekly Thread of Wisdom
By far my favourite mindfulness prompt is
"notice what you notice"
and it's noticing all the way down

We are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom. The world henceforth will be run by synthesizers, people able to put together the right information at the right time, think critically about it, and make important choices wisely.
~ E.O. Wilson
What a large volume of adventures may be grasped within this little span of life by him who interests his heart in everything.
~ Laurence Sterne, A Sentimental Journey
To think about the state of things in Nigeria seems to be the fastest way to lose my sleep. Recently, I ran into a tiny ray of light shining through the dark cloud of devastation that comes with the thoughts of Nigeria. I’m studying Adam Smith’s inquiry into the nature and causes of wealth of nations. It occurred to me that finding answers to one of my favourite problems might help us in the future. When I think about this, I wonder to myself: Do our leaders have the solution to the problem facing us as a people? Or they are winging governance? Was it necessary for things to deteriorate for us to get here? Is there another way out?

There is a mighty river of wisdom within you– and it’s a good day to take a comfortable position, close your eyes, take a deep breath, relax your body and tap from the superfluous resources within you.
Allow yourself to just rest in that place for a few moments, with nothing you need to do or think about, continue to breathe slowly and deeply and let go of all tension and anxiety.
Maintain your focus and draw out something beneficial for you and others.
Until next week,
