My name is David, a man of many interests, based in Accra, Ghana. I run Near For Good, where we build technologies that bring out the full potential of people in the developing world.
One needs a certain amount of naivety to approach problems, believing there are solutions for them. The kind of naivety that breeds curiosity. And when combined, no problem is out of the reach of a solution.

I have been observing something, that there can be a temptation to be recency-biased when it comes to the things we are grateful for. When you come through a challenging situation and get some breakthroughs, it’s easy to just focus most of ones gratitude on only the recent challenging situation you came through, but I think this can limit our gratitude.
