By now we all know that we facing a global economic crisis. Similar to what the West Indies Cricket is presently going through, but thatâ€™s a whole other story by itself which I will touch on in a later post.
We need to make some serious changes (sacrifices) in our present lifestyle if we are to survive this economic crisis.
Families should start tightening their belts, revised their budgets and all small business owners should look closely at all costs involved in running their small business.
Workers across the region have felt the hardship of these troubled times. Some have had salary cuts. Some have volunteered salary cuts. Yet others have been invited to agree to a shorter work week or forgo one monthâ€™s salary.
Now is the time for leaders and workers to see this period as one of challenge, personal sacrifice and high reward if able to emerge from this unstable period with dignity and success.
Finger-pointing and assigning blame at this stage is not only too late but meaningless. What is required now is competent, confident, quiet leadership which should determine the destiny of the country. Don’t you think so?
