Leaders from around the Organisation of East Caribbean States (OECS) was recently in St. Kitts/Nevis to officially append their signatures to documents intended to transform the OECS into an Economic Union in the effort to deepen integration between the participating countries, and has the potential to bring together a group of very small countries.

Advertised as the financial saviour of the OECS, especially now, when countries like ours need to come up with creative ideas to keep their economies afloat.

The Union presents an opportunity to pool resources as far as the best financial minds and a way forward in these Unfathomable Times. This a great opportunity presented for an exchange of data and other information leading to the transformation of the islands as a unit and as individual territories as well.

But why get involved in any situation when one stands to lose much more than it can gain? Our leaders believe they have to preserve what maintains in the OECS, in their wisdom, sought to determine that is best for the people, and we must give them every opportunity to try and make the union work for once it does, the benefits will certainly be felt here in Dominica and in the wider Caribbean.

What are your thoughts on the newly established OECS Economic Union? Let us know in the comments.

Christmas Day has been officially over for days now, but of course, there are many who will continue to enjoy the holidays , while there are those others suggesting that the holidays should be put behind us as quickly as possible so as to get down to the business.

The intention would be to ensure some of the problems and concerns do not travel too far with us into the New Year and that we can make 2010 a very special year in the development of our nature island.

But with the recent attempt to blow a plane full of people out of the sky, allegedly by someone with links to terrorism, helps us to understand that even outside of our domestic concerns related to poor economies and crime, there are simply some unfathomable things carrying on around us and which will eventually affect the way we choose to go about our daily lives.

The fact of the matter is that the world has indeed become very small and people from all of its parts can easily set up interests, just about anywhere, and everybody’s agenda is carried out with very little consideration for what they might consider “the collateral damage”.

Let’s be honest: most of us fail when it comes to sticking to resolutions – so much so that many people swear never to make resolutions again.

And yet a large percent of us are eternally hopeful when the New Years come around, believing without any doubts that we can improve our lives, that change is possible, that we’re not going to be stuck in the same old groove again this year.

I’m here to tell you that you can do it. It’s possible. But on the flip-side, and from my own personal experience – New Year’s Resolutions usually fail because of a couple of reasons:

  • We try to do too many resolutions at once, and that spreads our focus and energies too thin.
  • Life gets in the way. Things come up unexpectedly that get in the way of us sticking with a habit.

While I love the hopefulness of New Year’s Resolutions, unfortunately, the enthusiasm and hope often become lighter within weeks, and our efforts at self improvement come to a whimpering end.

So how can you make sure you your Resolutions?

I believe if you truly want to make it easier and more enjoyable to keep your New Year’s Resolutions, start by focusing on one habit change at a time, and most importantly – start out really, really easily, so it isn’t intimidating.

How do you make sure you keep your Resolutions? Let’s hear them it in the comments.
