Sadly few people who pass through formal schooling are able to preserve their capacity for INDEPENDENT thinking and creative reasoning (which is a function of the above mentioned genius they arrive the world with)

PII 099: You Need Reasoning Skills, NOT Memorization for Success! [www.discovercotonou.com – COMING SOON!]

All human beings are born with some kind of unique genius. We just need to narrow down to what it is for each person. Some of us discover it by ourselves. Others get it pointed out to them by those they interact with.
Sadly few people who pass through formal schooling are able to preserve their capacity for INDEPENDENT thinking and creative reasoning (which is a function of the above mentioned genius they arrive the world with).
By the time they emerge from that supposedly “educational” experience, they display an unhealthy preference for wanting to follow the crowd, to be like others, to NOT stand out, to belong to – and NOT stray away from – the pack or tribe.
And that’s what makes the few who refuse to let formal schooling “damage” them in that manner, seem so exceptional!

It’s what made Albert Einstein make such a formidable impact on the world with his ideas.

Little wonder that he consistently showed a contempt for formal education – having passed through it himself, and famously denouncing his teachers along the way.
Below is one of many quotes credited to him, in which he criticized the faulty system used in formal schools, whereby memorization of facts and figures was rewarded over and above reasoning skills:

 “Never memorize something that you can look up.”

And here is an excerpt from an excellent BBC report which notes the fact that Eisnten excelled by NOT adopting what formal education demanded i.e Rote Learning.

“Intriguingly, those who have more spindle events tend to have greater ‘fluid intelligence’ – the ability to solve new problems, use logic in new situations, and identify patterns – the kind Einstein had in spades. “They don’t seem related to other types of intelligence, such as the ability to memorise facts and figures, so it’s really specific to these reasoning skills,” says Fogel. This ties in nicely with Einstein’s disdain for formal education and advice to “never memorise anything which you can look up”.

I happen to be one of those few who managed to emerge from the formal schooling process without losing my Creative Genius. 

And this despite the fact that I managed to do quite well in the academic system. In fact, I did so well that I got awards right till I left the university.
Not only was I best graduating student, but I also scored the highest ever C.G.P.A (5.9)  in the department I finished from. And on top of that, I got awards for sporting excellence as well.
 
On getting to the real world however, I discovered that being able to use the knowledge I had or read up, to “solve new problems, use logic in new situations, and identify patterns ” – was what the WORLD really valued in people.

So while in paid employment, I dug deep into that natural genius of mine, for doing THAT and it turned me into a high performing manager that set all kinds of workplace achievement records in 7-short years.

I did things that got me noticed early in my career and earned me rapid career advancement opportunities well ahead of those who were my supposed seniors.
Since starting my own business, my knack for using the knowledge I have or that I read up, to “solve new problems, use logic in new situations, and identify patterns” has helped me build a profitable business model, that enables me get paid by clients locally and internationally, without face to face meetings.
One recurring theme has always been that I tend to THINK of and SEE things that are likely to be needed well ahead of others.
 
When I take action based on those insights I have, most people initially just scoff at my efforts and even call me foolish or silly. But eventually, because I never let go, and diligently persist in trying to work those ideas, I eventually prove them valid and those who doubted become converts.
This has happened again and again. I’m used to it. Any person who wants to make the most of his/her genius MUST get used to it, and never let it stop him/her from taking action to do what s/he is convinced about.

Today, I’m acting on the above mentioned instinct, again, by launching a new website – www.discovercotonou.com – to meet a series of needs I’ve identified from 4 solid years of careful research based on enquiries from visitors to www.tayosolagbade.com.

Once again I’m seeing what others are NOT seeing. But soon, they will. And I’ll be waiting to reap the usual rewards.

The same thing is currently happening for me in the area of Best Practice Parenting and the message I’m preaching that parents avoid making the mistake of NOT exposing their kids of income earning vocational skills based education EARLY in life – ideally alongside formal schooling. More on THAT in a separate article to come soon.If you need help making it happen, click here to send me a message

For NOW, here’s my admonition to you. 

You too can have the same experience of NOT letting formal schooling’s “IMPACT” limit your ability to manifest your genius.

Tayo K. Solagbade is a Location Independent Performance Improvement Specialist and Multipreneur (i.e. a highly versatile/multi-skilled entrepreneur), with a bias for delivering Best Practice solutions to Farm Businesses and others.

Since 2002, he has earned multiple streams of income providing individuals and organizations with personal development training and coaching, custom MS Excel-VB solutionsweb marketing systems/ web hosting, freelance writing services, and best practice extension support services (for farm business owners).

Tayo is the author of the Self-Development (SD) Bible™ and the popular Livestock Feed Formulation Handbook. He is also the developer of its accompanying Excel-VB driven Ration Formulator™ and the Poultry Farm Manager™ software.

He has delivered talks/papers to audiences in various groups and organizations, including the Centre for Management Development, University of Lagos, Christ Baptist Church, Volunteer Corps, Tantalisers Fast Foods and others.

In May 2012 he was the Guest Speaker at the Centre for Entrepreneurship Development’s Annual Semester Entrepreneurial Lecture at Yaba College of Technology in Lagos.

On 1st April 2013, Tayo (who reads, write and speaks the French language) relocated to Cotonou, Benin Republic to begin slowly traveling across the West African region.

His key purpose is to deliver talks, seminars and workshops on his key areas of focus and interest to interested audiences (Email tayo at tksola dot com for details).

In a previous life, before leaving to become self-employed, Tayo served for seven years (October 1994 to December 2001) as a high performing manager in Guinness Nigeria. He rose from Shift Brewer to Training & Technical Development Manager, and later acted in senior roles as Production Manager and Technical Manager.

In addition to constantly challenging the status quo and influencing positive work changes, he built a reputation for using self-taught spreadsheet programming skills (starting with Lotus 1-2-3, and later moving to Excel Visual Basic) – in his spare time – to develop Automated Spreadsheet Applications to computerize manual report generation processes in the departments he worked. Over four(4) of his applications were adopted for brewery level reporting.

Tayo holds a B.Sc degree in Agricultural Extension Services from the University of Ibadan, Nigeria, having graduated top of his class – with Second Class Upper Division honors – in 1992. He is an Associate Member of the UK Institute & Guild of Brewing, a 1997 National Finalist of the Nigerian Institute of Management’s(NIM) Young Managers’ competition, a Certified Psychometric Test Administrator for Psytech UK, innovator of Spontaneous Coaching for Self-Development™ (SCfS-D™), and Founder of the Self-Development Academy (SDAc).

When he’s not amazing clients with his superhuman skills (wink), Tayo works as the creative force behind his Daily Self-Development Nuggets blog – on which he also publishes The Farm CEO Weekly Newspaper (sent via email to paid subscribers) and his Weekly Performance Improvement IDEAS newsletter.

You can connect with him on Twitter @tksola.com and Facebook.

[IMPORTANT NOTE:====

On 4th May 2014, Tayo’s 9 year old domain (Spontaneousdevelopment dot com), which hosted his website, was taken over by Aplus.net.

Within a few days however, Tayo used his advanced self-taught web development skills to build a SUPERIOR “reincarnation” of it the website http://www.tayosolagbade.com.

But updates are still ongoing to URLs bearing the old domain name in most of the over 1,000 web pages, and blog posts he’s published.

If you experience any difficulties finding a page or document, email Tayo at tksola dot com.

Click “Tayo, What Happened to SpontaneousDevelopmentDotCom ?” to read a detailed narrative about how the above event occurred :-))

Here’s an article Tayo wrote, to inspire others to defy adversity, and bounce back to even greater reckoning at what they do EVERY time:
