“Nothing is more dangerous than an idea, when you only have one idea” (Alan),
I really agree with the above statement. In the essence, is very important to have plan B. For in case if plan A fails. This term is usually used mostly to business industry, apparently called backup system. During the planning stage, backup system should be developed as a backup plan. In football for instance, coaches are always have their starting line up players, when team does not bring the good results or scoring goals, the coach will bring in substitutes with another good players. This may be called as part of coaches’ plan B. Leaders or managers who do not have a backup plan always failed. Another example of backup system, it’s like when student is preparing a power point presentation, there is a need for backup plan. Otherwise failing to do this, what if the document that student is intending to present is not opening and what are you going to present?. This will be sort of embarrassment because audiences will be waiting for you. Therefore failing to have backup plan is just a stupid idea.

Why strikes pursued by Blacks only,,
All the times when I am watching news or reading newspapers, I always see black people only who are pursuing strikes. I never see whites pursuing strikes. What I know the reasons for the strikeis almost the same issue, salary adjustment or better working conditions, isn’t other ethnic groups affected. I think the labour unions should start to address this issue, as this should also a challenge to them. When we talk we say South Africa is diverse country, yes of course that is the fact. In every aspect such as working environment, occupations, etc we want to see every ethnic group to be represented. Let’s show our unity throughout all sphere, let’s not have sellers. When employees have achieved their demands, everyone enjoy those benefits. The labour unions should try to unpack their slogan, “An injury to one is an injury to all”. There is needed to make sure that awareness is made to inform those ethnic groups that are clueless. Because when it comes to strikes the slogan is inactive, after demands were achieved, the slogan is active.
