Okay if you are on this blog post you are probably wondering what things can you do during your kombie ride. Well, I have been observing folks in the kombies I catch when going home or when I get into the CBD.
I must say kombie rides are very interesting, I always think to myself that one day I will miss these kombie rides when I get my first car because a lot happens in the kombie.I have compiled a list of things one can do in a kombie.
- Connect with the person next to you
I have observed some really scary silence in some kombie rides.I know there are various challenges in Zimbabwe this cannot stop us from connecting and creating relationships in a public ride.
Kombie rides are an opportunity for one to greet the next person sitting next to you.You never know you might be sitting next to an investor, your future ex-girlfriend, your future wife, or your future husband, okay you get my point.
Tip- do not embarrass yourself in the process. My point is, just create some subtle conversation and connect with the person next to you. Relationships are what make the human race tick.

- Eavesdrop on other conversations
For this one, I direct it to creative individuals. If you are creative like me you can benefit massively from eavesdropping on other conversations in the kombie.I have had amazing concepts from eavesdropping in the kombie.
You might be writing a film script, a song or a book.Folks say shocking and amazing things in a kombie .Next time you are in a writer’s block try eavesdropping in a kombie you might get a concept which might turn out to be a bestseller.
- Study people in the kombie
This one is very interesting. I usually try to study people in a kombie and try to visualize what they are thinking about at a particular moment. Human beings are a very interesting subject and just looking, analysing human behaviour can be a fascinating experience.
I normally do this when my phone battery is dead and when the next person sitting to me is wearing earphones [Not interested in a chat].Studying human beings is amazing journey it makes you think, reflect and thank God for being part of his creation.
4.Catch up with your phone apps
Okay, this one is probably obvious a lot of us embark on it. These days everyone is glued on to their phones. Green screens, blues screens, rainbow screens, folks are on whatsapp, facebook and Instagram during.If you’re a very productive person you probably cannot attend to all the notifications in your phone during the day.A kombie ride is an opportunity for one to catch up with their phone apps.
- Propagate your agenda
A lot of opportunities arise in a kombie.The fact that a kombie has close to 20 people.This is a huge chance to influence the people in it and possibly increase your net worth.
I always see dollars signs when I enter a kombie.At one point I remember distributing flyers of a local film screening in a kombie and my business cards.The response is always amazing.You may never know who is in the kombie with you, so yes go ahead spread and grow your business in the kombis. I have seen pastors preaching in kombis.
If a pastor can propagate their agenda in a kombie why not you?.A kombie is a space for public speakers, artists and politicians still climbing the success ladder.
I will like to see more politicians propagating their agendas next year during kombi rides, upcoming Councilors and MPs connecting with fellow residents in a kombie, that not be awesome.
Feel free to add some of the things one might do during their kombi ride.
