Let’s get crazy!
Seal wrote and performed the song Crazy which I quote below:
Only child know…
A man decides after seventy years,
That what he goes there for, is to unlock the door.
While those around him criticize and sleep…
And through a fractal on a breaking wall,
I see you my friend, and touch your face again.
Miracles will happen as we trip.
But we’re never gonna survive, unless… We get a little crazy.
I see a lot of wisdom in those words.
I was born in the early seventies, so I’m not 70 years old as I write this, but unlocking the door is something that I can do. I see a lot of potential in today’s young people, and I see infinite potential in the young Qataris. I trust them to do the right thing, if they knew how to do it. Any leader’s job today is to be an enabler, allowing young Qataris to be what they can be, I expect miracles.
I have seen many examples of this, but perhaps the most obvious example is that of our 22-year old son of the Emir, Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad, and Qatar’s world cup in 2022.
This is my call to all the young Qataris born after 1992, you need to lead the future, start NOW! What do you want to do in 2022? What do you want to do in 2030? How about later? How about before that? What’s your plan?
