By Yusuf Omar

South Africa is deeply grieved by the passing away of former political prisoner, Ahmed kathrada. He was a man that witnessed what most only read about and experienced what most only think about. While the world looks into his past, which is no doubt important, I thought to myself that the best way to honour him would be to take lessons from his life and use it to create a better tomorrow for all of us. After going through his life and times, I came up with six contemporary lessons that will improve our personal lives, and our country. These lessons are not taken out from just one period of his life but as you read through it, you will realise that I looked at his entire life when making my selection. The added benefit of this is that no matter what age category you fall in, there is at least one lesson here that will call for immediate implementation. That is why i opted to describe these lessons as 'contemporary'. I also added a memorable quote for us to ponder over at the end of each lesson. So, here goes. read more

A young man asked an older rich man how he made his money.

The old guy fingered his sweater and said, "Well, son, it was 1934 and in the depth of the Great Depression. I was down to my last dime.

"I invested that dime in an apple. I spent the entire day polishing the apple and, at the end of the day, I sold the apple for fifteen cents.

"The next morning, I invested those fifteen cents in two apples. I spent the entire day polishing them and sold them for 30 cents. I continued this system for a month, by the end of which I'd accumulated a fortune of $1.59."

"And that's how you built an empire?" the boy asked.

"Heavens, no!" the man replied. "Then my wife's father died and left us two million dollars."
