⁣You must have heard that “change is constant”… But is it?⁣

⁣Marcus, Timothy, Pieter and Carel were the co-founders of BitX in 2013.⁣
BitX was a very popular cryptocurrency exchange platform that helped people buy or sell bitcoin in exchange for local currency.⁣
In January 2017, BitX was changed to what is now known as “Luno”⁣

⁣At that same time, a new mobile applications were launched, new learning portals and more purchase options.⁣

⁣The same company, new identity.⁣
⁣Markus Villig is the co-founder of Taxifiy, a company he started in 2013 at 19 years old.⁣

⁣In March 2019, Taxify was changed to what is now known as “Bolt”⁣

⁣This was in line with the company’s broader vision of transportation that has already expanded from ride-hailing, with cars and motorbikes, to scooter sharing.⁣

⁣The same company, new identity.⁣⁣

⁣In 2017, I had just started my personal development journey after coming under the mentorship of Elisha Mamman.⁣

⁣It was a great start but for over a year I had one problem.⁣

⁣I am a fast learner and I knew so much so fast… Especially tech related things.⁣

⁣So I could use a camera decently, I could shoot and edit videos, edit pictures, create designs, write, make podcasts, and I had just started practicing web design and development.⁣

⁣I think the only thing I didn’t know how to do back then was to dance.⁣

⁣I still don’t know how to… And I didn’t see it in the skills of the future so I am fine. ⁣

⁣But this was an issue for me. I didn’t know what to focus on.⁣

⁣I wanted clarity and I became stuck at a point.⁣

⁣In order not to start a “wrong” thing, I got myself to a point where I didn’t start anything at all.⁣

⁣What if I become a digital marketer when I was supposed to be a photographer. What happens to my “destiny”?⁣⁣

One of your greatest strengths is your freedom to choose.⁣

⁣If you make the right choices, you’ll get more options to choose from. ⁣

⁣But not making a choice is a choice.⁣

⁣Give yourself the freedom to change. ⁣

Do not feel that because everyone knows you as a baker you will continually supress every other gift, skill or ability you have, even if they keep crying out for expression.⁣

⁣Your gifts can compliment each other.⁣

⁣Your ability to teach can compliment your ability to code.⁣

⁣Why wait for the light at the end of the tunnel when you can flip a switch and put on the light where you are?⁣

⁣This is a time when so many people are taking stock of their lives, reviewing choices, analysing options.⁣

⁣Never be stuck by your “brand”.⁣

⁣You created your brand… Your brand did not create you.⁣

⁣You are the same person… But you can have a new identity.⁣

⁣One of your greatest strengths is your freedom to choose.⁣

⁣So, choose.⁣

⁣To your continued Digital Productivity,⁣
