What Lessons Have You Learnt In 2020?

December 29, 2020

If there is a year people won’t forget it is definitely this year. Many things happened from the pandemic to protest and finally, the year is coming to an end.

Here are the top lessons I was able to learn in 2020.


1. Life is unpredictable. You don’t know what will befall you for the future is not within our locus of control.


Anything can happen in life. I was supposed to graduate this year but the pandemic scattered everything.


2. Every disappointment is an opportunity to someone. While we were in the midst of COVID-19 and a lot lost their jobs, some people made more money than any other year.


3. Never trust people word but actions.


People give empty promises. It doesn’t matter even if they swear it is gibberish.


4. People are selfish. No one can truly love you except yourself. Anyone can betray you at any time.


5. Those in authority almost always think they are above the law.


6. Never try to fight those who are more powerful than you or else they crush you.


Never outshine your master as Robert Greene will put it.


7. Nothing spread faster than fear. People who are insecure will spread lies to make others fear.


8. We do everything in life to make us forget death. We keep ourselves busy with work, sports, movies etc for boredom reminds us of loneliness and death. This month of December was very scary for many people died, and it made me think deeply about life.


9. Be careful with flaunting your wealth. People are envious of successful people. The more you showcase yourself the more some people resent you.


10. Blame shifting. People like to shift blame on others. Most people do not want to be blamed, neither is their subordinates, the government, their spouse, family etc.
