What to do about it – SDGs in Fiji

You can bring a human to knowledge, but you can’t make him think.

How true is that? To think for yourself seems to be impossible for the majority of people. At school we learn facts, but they don’t teach us to think. They make us dependent on handouts etc. this whole system needs a complete crash down and rebuild.

Look for yourself, read for yourself … Easier than Google and Wikipedia is almost not possible. Do you care about yourself, your family, your community, your country, our planet? Stop thinking small and that global issues won’t affect you locally. Yes, Fiji is a small countries … But it is a country and home for almost 1 million people. Nothing wrong to care about it a little bit.

Sustainable development goals sounds big, but every single goal of all those 17 need to be actioned on here in Fiji. Of course it’s not easy and for most of the 17 goals we are still not clear how to tackle them. If it would be easy than already the 8 millennium goals would have solved the world’s biggest problem … Poverty.

Do you want to help or you want to ignore the urge of doing something about it? I know for myself that I won’t stop nagging about it. Although I’m not perfect, neither is my family. But we talk about things at home, we try to change our habits. We fail and we get up again. We have nothing to lose by trying, because we know if we don’t do anything, nothing will change.

Where to start? Just ask question, be curious. Don’t wait until someone tell you what to do … Take the initiative! You can only learn from … And this hasn’t hurt anyone yet.

Peace out and I see you around!

Don’t even think it comes easy to me to get up and speak. I’m scared to be told off, to be ridiculed, to not know the answer, to be questioned … But I do it anyway, because I care.

Time to get real


If robotics is to succeed like computing, what matters is making practical robots that do jobs well and affordably …

… taken from a New Scientist article

The Fukushima Daiichi power plant incident in Japan in 2011 has changed the view Japan has about robots. Everyone knows about the advanced robotics skills Japanese scientists have developed in the last 30 years. We can see them in singing, running and dancing humanoid robots. But in 2011 Japan has seen the usage of robots to deal with the nuclear emergency. The military already uses robots to defuse improvised explosive devices.

How often do you waste your time by getting ready, having the perfect business card or cleaning up your desk so your phone is well positioned on it?

Does that sound familiar?

Get real .. all that doesn’t make you move forward in your business nor in your life. Yes, a clean desk gives you a clean mind, but just don’t use it as an excuse for not making phone calls or writing that particular important report. Be practical and useful, be out there and share with the world what you have to offer.

Time to get real! What are the demons you are facing? What’s preventing you to show the world what you have to offer?

Control the content of your dream

Have you ever woken up in the middle of a dream and you wanted to go back to sleep immediately, because you needed to know how the dreams end? I am not a fan of open-ended stories either 😀

Or did you try to plan your dream ahead? You are in bed thinking, wouldn’t it be nice to dream about this tonight!

I am sure science is on to it and one day all this will happening. But what to do in the meantime? Will dreams always be dreams? Are you working on living your dreams?

  • Living in your dream house
  • Driving your dream car
  • Being with your dream partner
  • Having your dream job (does that exist?)
What if your dreams could come true? “Could” is such a fake word. I prefer as Master Yoda said:
Do or not do, there is no try!

If you can dream about things, you can think about them. And as soon as you think about them, they exist. They are reality. Thoughts => Action => Results. Just don’t let dreams just be dreams. If you like them, write them down. What are the actions you can take to make them reality? What are the skills you need to learn? Who are the people you have to meet?

Control the content of your dream in the way that dreams inspire you what is possible.
Keep dreaming, keep looking and you will find your dream house, dream car or partner.
