One Lesson from the Country that Ruled the World


All histories must necessarily have reference to the existence and condition of Man. The use is left for him to decide.

No country have been particularly opportune to rule the world. However, there have been empires that have come close. Some of these empires ruled portions of the world for brief periods of time but none came close to this one empire. Until about 70 years ago this empire had invaded 90 percent of the world's countries; colonizing the United States of America, Australia, India, and a greater part of Africa. Other countries it didn’t out rightly colonize, it exerted some measure of influence over them, using armed presence, paying diplomatic and economic visits to China and Japan in the 18th century. This empire is none other than Great Britain.

Britain, a tiny island that would fit into Nigeria about 20times has the most awful weather you can think of, a very moody weather. The British didn’t have much in terms of Land and Labor in the 16th and 17th century, so how come this one tiny Island could colonize over 1billion people from different parts of the world? As a matter of fact, no other empire has its language as the “lingua franca” except the British, which serves as the universal means of communication.

Obviously, they didn't rule the world because they had lots of resources, so what did this tiny Island discover? All that was necessary for this tiny Island to be a force to reckon with was just one blessing; Time management and with this, wisdom abounds.

Time management is what changed their economy, the European economy; introduced the industrial revolution and changed the whole world.

Benjamin Franklin once made a statement he said; “Do not squander time, for that’s the stuff life is made of”. There is also the wise saying that “He, who controls time, controls everything.”

Of a truth, the necessity for entrepreneurship is fathered by time management and the result of taking calculated time based decisions is the priced characteristic of an industrialist. No wonder entrepreneurship is a factor of production.

A fellow in a 2000 year old book, Esau, was left but one blessing from his father, the Entrepreneur's ability. This marked the beginning of his turn around. Mensa Otabil calls this the blessing of seeking a change because of discontent. History also has it that the wisest man who ever lived, King Solomon also asked for one blessing; the ability to make good decisions at the "right time".

It is no wonder a single blessing can have an extra-ordinary effect on one's mind; the little flame of insight that engulfs the whole body and paves the way for the fuzzy to be furious with purpose, accomplishment and discipline.

Charles Beard once said; “If all historical conceptions are merely relative to passing events, to transitory phases of ideas and interests, without any deep thought of how it can change our present world then the conception of relativity by Einstein is itself relative and of no use.”

But we know the historical conceptions of the theory of relativity by Albert Einstein and its impact in our present world. Believe it or not, we all have at least one blessing, the same one blessing. How best are you using the previous experiences to correct your present time? The issue with time management is based on whether you have faith in time or not, because time will definitely justify your faith.
