backup
Never underestimate the power of, and the need for backups.
16 January 2022
Good news: MacBook died suddenly in May. Had backup of all work and school files to date (Google Drive for Mac). Had a dated but still useful backup copy of system settings and ALL files on a local network drive (TimeMachine – a free, bundled into MacOS by Apple. There are alternatives for Windows and Linux). All web servers we rely on at OluwakoredeAsuni.com, are backed up incrementally every night and entire snapshots taken once a month. Good...

We do not have forever
09 January 2022
We don’t have forever. So: Do it now. Quicken the pace. Take the trip. Propose to her. Start the savings account. Dip your feet in the pool. Buy and complete that course. Read that book. Lay that foundation. Sip that wine. Ask that question. Lift that weight. Crack that joke. Write that code. Teach that person. Keep that promise. If it aligns with your values. If it brings you joy, peace and health. If it takes nothing away from the world. Then...

Combating Infobesity
03 January 2022
There is no one way to combat this epidemic. However, the following steps may help one get started: (a) Awareness: Always bear in mind you are swimming in a lot of or even too much information and that this could lead to decision paralysis. (b) Start with the end in mind: Establish before starting your research or any work for which consuming, analysing and taking decisions based on information is dependent. A rough sketch of your intended destination...

Ayobami Oladejo on Careers and Career Pivots
14 December 2021
By Ayobami Oladejo This article was first shared on Ayobami’s facebook timeline, here So, what career should you pursue? We need to be realistic and have frank discussions especially going into a new year. I guess it is no longer news that most career paths you knew are no longer viable. Why? Technology has improved and is improving at a rate that ensures that most tasks today can be automated. We are also in a period where degrees are most...

Risk and luck are both out of our hands
07 November 2021
Risks and Luck are two sides of the same coin, sometimes the same exact same side of the same coin but viewed from different angles, or at different times of the day or an epoch  or with varying contexts. Whilst I am firmly of the opinion that all causes have an effect and that studying the previous cause of an effect may be a great way to repeat that effect, the truth is that, there are often certain elements mixed into the causes which are beyond...

How not to fall into the trap of vanity metrics
13 October 2021
Knowing the bit I do about YouTube’s algorithm – which is similar to most social media platform’s – its key goal is to keep viewers on the platform for as much and as long as possible, thus selecting and presenting to users, either on the users’ YouTube.com landing page, search results, or recommended videos (which follows after a video is watched completely by users) what the users’ watch history suggests the user...

Baaaby! We grew the channel!!!
02 October 2021
Yep! Erm… we did it!!! Having had some doubts – like any one starting a new career or journey would – it is quite gratifying to cross a milestone (well, I defined it, for myself). This month, I am challenging myself to publish a video daily – short, crisp, straight to the jugular conversations, but also well produced. Not too late to catch the challenge and subscribe to the channel !!!
Forever After
You, do not have forever!
30 September 2021
What you have is now. Only, now. And as time progresses towards the future, you have yourself instantaneous new nows.  With the old nows out of reach and now useless to you, except of course, if you have made something of the old nows which you can take along to the new now. With every new now comes new challenges and responsibilities – well for most people. And as nows pile, so does the responsibilities and challenges one has to deal with it....
