Enrich your life outside your career

do you limit yourselfI am guilty of this myself. Doctors are notorious for keeping a narrow mind within medicine. We think that being great at medicine helps compensate for other shortcomings.

News flash: it doesn’t.

We need to spend time outside of our career to keep a well-balanced lifestyle. It really doesn’t matter what you do, whether you cook, exercise, wash your car, read, or all of the above. I will intersperse my entries on occasion with tutorials on routine “blue collar” work that will help you get ahead.I know too many medical residents or students who are “too busy” to clean their apartments or cook their meals. Read Ben Brown’s analysis of a doctor’s value.  Unless you’re financially independent several times over think twice if you’re too good to wash your dishes.
