The rest of us wonder where are we going wrong. We hear stories of people winning awards, achieving goals, achieving targets.
Why not me? It was a moment that shocked the most of the BBC viewers of Strictly Come Dancing. If John Sergeant could be picked week after week by the public, what is wrong with me? I am in a much better shape than him not only in looks but also in my work.
Why did I not do well on patient survey? I simply could not believe that my result was lower than national average.
If the public could keep John in week after week, why could not the same public give me a higher score?
I am beginning to wonder, do people actually understand what voting means and what effect it can have on morale?
I hope the next year will bring a success story for me too, as it did for him.
