In June 2007, I walked into Dr Reuben Abati's office at The Guardian and muttered the words "Sir, I would love to interview Wole Soyinka".

Suddenly, I felt my knees weaken beneath me as it dawned on me that I was probably asking for a dragon's tooth. I shouldn't have had the audacity to say such things as a rookie reporter, but then I watched the most unbelievable act play out before my eyes. Dr Abati quietly picked a scrap piece of paper, scribbled something and handed the paper to me. I was stunned. I had just been given the keys to the kingdom!

I ran to my desk, typed up a long email and went home, unable to sleep easily through the night. The following morning, I arrived at work to see that my email had been replied within 10 minutes. My interview was guaranteed to happen. Five months later, it happened!

Every time I think back to that moment (and that happens very often), I am reminded that Dr Abati did not have to do what he did. He was incredibly kind to an upcoming journalist. I therefore find it so easy to do the same for others when I have the privilege. Whether or not you have had your Dr Abati, you can help to make the world a better place by extending your influence to help someone up the ladder of life.

Just do it. ✔️

We have a tendency to become very enthusiastic about the things that we commit time and effort to achieving. Your passion grows as you encounter progress.

So, maybe stop waiting around for your passion to magically become profitable. Develop your passion, don't follow it. https://t.co/CIVw04Bocy

You need to put in the work. Invest in learning - read, dig deep, ask questions, seek out more information, don't stop. And when you've learned enough, take some action.

Remember - nothing changes over time; things only change when determined people take deliberate actions.
