During every election season the campaign platforms are filled with politicians and supporters who share their views and make big promises of development in every sector. However, with Guyana’s new opportunity for total economic transformation, our Politicians need to start thinking differently. I believe that these incumbent play a game with the minds of the people and the country’s resources.
The game begins with a large gathering of players and supporters to declare the readiness of each political party, this is called the official launch. It ends with the celebration of an even larger gathering claiming victory. This is a finite game, a game that each party plays to win. In this time when our country is on the verge of a potential economic boom, we need leaders who will play an infinite game. An infinite game is completely different – the goal is not to win, but to keep playing to advance the cause. Every leader who plays in the infinite game must have a clear sense of the cause. The cause should be to transform Guyana into its true potential and utilize its resources for the betterment of all citizens.
Our leaders need to stop thinking solely about winning the presidential seat and majority in parliament, and start focusing on continuous development for the country and its citizens. Promising to increase minimum wages by 10%, repairing roads and cutting taxes in 4 years are not enough to advance a cause. Our country needs to have an infinite plan of development, like ensuring that every citizen earns enough wages to feed their families and enjoy a good quality of life. A total revamping of our transportation section. A strategic plan that ensures all citizen have access to the best health care services available for a healthy nation and implementing a system to ensure that all citizen pay their taxes.
As a country with less than 1 million people and an opportunity for economic transformation, we need leaders with an infinite mindset. One that will advance a cause and ensure that everyone gets to play in the game.
We the citizens need to start challenging our leaders to push beyond vague promises and petty incentives for our votes. These leaders should have bigger and better vision for the country one that includes all people; service oriented and strong enough to withstand challenges. Guyana’s leaders need to be transformed by the renewing of their minds.
