A nation with priorities!

2017-07-08 18:30

Life is not easy and it has never been easy. The blame game always take things from better to worse, because there is no accountability.

And were these no accountability then maturity and progress will always be compromised. As a nation of the Republic of South Africa we recently face more difficulties, challenges and obstacles.

Most of the problems we face today they have been existing before, but they were under control. But today this problems are pulling-up  because we fail to set priorities. 

We can debate as much as we want, but the fact is that the "blame game" had never resolved anything in life, it has never improved any nation. And we have to agree that challenges and difficulties had aways existed, even within great nations on earth. I still emphasize that we should learn to prioritize, we can't resolve and achieve everything at once.

Somewhere somehow we should be realistic, as the old saying says; first things first. 

As a nation we have to identify, analyze and prioritize our problems accordingly. By so doing we will avoid neglecting issues that are urgent, such as; Unemployment, poor education system and corruption. These problems are among the list, but very severe in my point of view.

We should set our priorities straight, "to avoid running around like headless chickens." We should do so with a clear understanding that no nation is perfect. But if we do our level best to redress what matters most our outcome will always be a success. 

We are approaching Nelson Mandela international day. And he was and still is a perfect example of setting priorities. The late President Mandela he knew he can't achieve or do everything at once or alone. The old man did what was best, what he could, and what was necessary at that point of time. That seems and sounds like being able to prioritizing.

So as South Africans it lies in our shoulders to do the same. To individually or collectively do our level best to influence a good and beneficial change were we can, and were it matters most.

This Mandela day let us not just volunteer for 67 minutes, but let's pledge to prioritize and effectively contribute in making our nation a better one.
