“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much”
― Helen Keller
A New Year is synonym to CHANGE or IMPROVEMENTS. Most people make resolutions – all in the name of becoming a better person as a whole. At an organization level, the same thing applies.
Recently we had an informal meeting with our leader and as he reinforced ‘new rules’ that were to be made regarding the common practices within the unit, I couldn’t help noticing a few individuals scoffing and exchanging quiet, meaningful glances at each other. I seem to be able to read their minds.
“It won’t work”
“It has been done before. In a few days.. people will forget about it”
Sad enough these are the people who could actually make the changes take place if they would just give it another try and be CONSISTENT. Even Tony Robbins would agree.
I like to believe that if everyone pulls on their weight, the better good can have an effect on the current common practice. I like to believe that old dogs can be taught new tricks. I like to believe that as a healthcare provider, we are doing this because we care for our patients. Even though they themselves don’t give a damn of how bad their diabetic control is.
