Are you Proactive or Reactive?
Like Al Pacino in the movie “Insomnia” I suffer this disorder a lot, though not for the same reasons as he did. Some time back I suffered this and my mind went wandering……Do you ever wonder why we are such a reactive people as opposed to being proactive?
Take our governments for example – why do they wait for disaster to strike before they act on something? For instance, in Dar Es Salaam, the building traffic jams, aren’t they going to become a major hindrance to business operations in the very near future? What is the government doing about this? And there is something being done, is it enought? What about the issue of mushrooming skyscrapers all over the city of Dar? Are these buildings being equipped with ample parking space for their occupants and their visitors? Or are we going to see more parking chaos in the city? What about the issue of electricity and water (lack of)?
But all these are child's play; the greatest nightmare for me right now, is living with the thought that more bombs might go off at the remaining armories in Dar Es Salaam….. Remember Mbagala and Gongo La Mboto? Can someone please start being proactive as opposed to being reactive with this issue? Let’s leave the government for now... their work is cut out for them.
