Five things I would change about Jersey
Something different for this blog post, as seen on the Bailiwick Express here are David's five things he would change about Jersey.
- Remember to count our blessings.
Jersey may be a small island but we are without a doubt a special place. Our clean and beautiful coastline and countryside, our education and medical systems, our caring community, our safe environment and many more characteristics are all reasons to be cheerful. We should remember to be grateful that we live in such a fortunate and peaceful part of the world, a place where there are many opportunities.
- Acknowledge weaknesses and strengths of Jersey.
While we need to remember what makes us great we also need to reflect on where things go wrong. Instead of complaining, let’s find solutions to Jersey’s problems. I want us to be proud of our Island, but we need to be logical about what’s good and bad - what gets measured gets managed.
- A vision and a plan.
I would especially like the younger generation, to think about where they would like Jersey to be in 30 or 40 years for themselves, their children and their grandchildren. By having a vision, we can plan for Jersey’s future to safeguard our economy, our community, our environment and our heritage while adapting with the times.
- Sit down and share a meal with family and friends.
This one is simple. I believe food is not just fuel for our bodies. Preparing fresh food brings people together to talk, share and laugh – a reality check. We all have to eat so why not spend that time with the ones you love. Nothing could be more special to me.
Everyone should aim for a goal, whether it is personal or career. Working hard earns reward. We need to adapt, learn new skills, take a risk and not be afraid to be different or make a mistake. Aspirations should not stop with the individual and we shouldn’t take an inclusive community and all it offers for granted.
