The Power Of Thinking: My Answer
“If I ‘m in control of my 24hours once yearly, what would I do or achieve?”
This question popped out from my head one evening when I was jogging. I stopped jogging and started walking in other to think. I kept thinking through out my work-out time, the following days and some weeks that followed. I could not come up with a satisfactory answer.
Then one evening, it happened! I got an answer, a satisfactory one. My answer…
Well, here it is; I would work on the power outages, fix the dams, supply gases, install and repair infrastructures that would ensure constant and stable power supply!
Since I am a ‘super woman’ for 24 hours, it means everything I want can be done with the speed of light. I also thought if I’m that powerful, I could even extend the 24 hours until every problem in our power sector is readily solved and we can enjoy uninterrupted power supply in the country.
When these thoughts came to me, I smiled and felt good inside. I felt happy and satisfied. However, just like being a ‘superwoman’ is not realistic, so sadly being able to achieve my dream is unrealistic.
But this question gave me something- the power to think and solve challenges. I would have loved to live in a country where we can boast of constant power. A country where so many things would fall in place if we can have uninterrupted power.
As we all know, with constant power, there would be more jobs, less use of generators, less pollution (noise and air), less stress as the standard of living would improve while the cost of living would reduce. This would improve the life expectancy of our dear country which is about 49 years for the men and 55 years for women at the moment. The lowest in the West Africa region.
This would have been my dream, my solution and my achievements if I was a ‘superwoman’.
What would have been your own answer?
