“I’m sorry Ron, this JUST won’t do! You have to push yourself.
Honestly, These KRAs are just not acceptable” …. Tina’s voice screeched on the phone.
She kept talking…. but i wasn’t listening…
Oh God! I’m going to lose my Job! I’m going to be unemployed, destitute, on the road, begging for scraps… My mind raced, throwing up visions of a dark future … worse than death.
I prayed – God! Take me now! End this misery! I am pushing so HARD – and it’s still not enough. I’m tired! Let me Sleep – permanently.
My vision blurred… I felt dizzy… everything went blank.
I barely managed to say … “Sure Tina, I’ll try again…” … before she hung up.
