“Despite math being a necessity, I can’t take the occupational role of an accountant. Alright, I did it once or twice.

This is why I seriously advocate for occupassion (an occupation that has a linkage to your passion… Click To Tweet
Once: Leading my first company (Specuit Cargo) out of debt of about N1,500,000 within twelve months – necessary becoming-an-accountant evil at the time.
 
Twice: Fixing my personal finance.
 
If I do take up the occupational role of an accountant, it’s either I help that company attain the Misfortune 500 Companies List, or I run my body cells down.
 
This is why I seriously advocate for occupassion (an occupation that has a linkage to your passion and vice-versa). When occupassion is embraced, individuals become workafrolics/workaphiles (individuals that work because they love their jobs; money is part of it though but not the major driving force), not workaholics (individuals that have a compulsive need to work because of the money, security, etc).
 
Now, take a good look at the bosses, CEOs, general managers, management officials, sales managers, take your pick – any.
 
I don’t have anything personal against them. I just have something personal against those who don’t seem to get it in their heads by insisting on sitting someone in love with ICT behind a teller counter – a perfect square peg in a round hole – and they end up handing same talented IT personnel a pink slip when she doesn’t perform to the company’s expectation.
 
How would she perform to the company’s expectation? For employment’s sake, if the company has an ICT division or team, that’s where she ought to be and not behind the counter.
 
Once upon a time, a lady slightly accused me of wanting her out of the company because I tried re-assigning her to a team where I knew she would perform best.
 
Did I really care about the accusation? A smidgen. To get things done efficiently and grow a company, profit-oriented or charity-oriented, humans are meant to be fittingly assigned to where they would be able to create the connection between their passions and the job roles in question.”
