#Reading Challenge: Would you hold me accountable?

It’s been about a year since I posted on this blog, no? #JustKidding

Sincere apologies to those who have checked in every now and then; the reason is simple – I have been S-W-A-M-P-E-D.

Swimming frantically against the tide of work, a lifelong pursuit, training, project supervision/consultancy and a book project – little me. It has been tough, painful, hurting and simple stressful but I am grateful for inner strength and divine mercies.

I LOVE to read, just found a new word I will write about shortly.

Can you imagine my excitement when I stumbled on excerpts of what seems to be a very interesting book (THE RISE: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery) which interrogates aspects of our lifestyles, we hardly pay attention to? I bet you cannot. Just a review of the book got me soaked in and I already posted quotes on my Facebook Page and sent a shout out to the author on Twitter. She writes with the clarity of thought, yet uncertainness of someone open to superior arguments without a fight; she reminds me of one of my favourite authors, Malcom Gladwell.
