11th July – I’m nervous.
Let’s just say that there’s stuff happening at work that makes me feel uncomfortable. I’ve got an uneasy feeling about the way things are happening – or – not, as the case may be. And, what the consequences will be…
I’m just not convinced that we are getting this right. I’m beginning to doubt my abilities. I doubt what I have achieved – what I am tasked to achieve and what I can actually achieve. That’s not right, is it? What makes me nervous is that I’ve been here before. And, I know how this works.
To give you an idea of what this is about – one of my friends came up with this:
SALES RESCUE 101:
Question: what can we do to rescue Q3
