Find Out What You Love As A Physician

Freelance MD is about finding out what you love as a physician outside of clinical practice, and then going there.

Here's what Steve Jobs had to say about it where you should be.

You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.... Don't settle...

...Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma--which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Steve Jobs - Commencement address, Stanford University, June 12, 2005

If you feel that you're not following the path that you want, it is possible to cut a new path and find the career and lifestyle that you want. But you have to start.

If you're looking to understand your options outside of clinical practice and get some personal face-time with others who are where you want to be, come to Medical Fusion. Not only will you get a fantasitc understanding or what's available out there, but you'll have mucho face-to-face access to every speaker (and other attendees) during breaks and accellerator sessions. (Take a look at who's speaking at Medical Fusion.) I hope to see you there.

There are so many options available to all of us, yet too often we "forget" and stop dreaming about what could be.

I recently learned of a survey of older adults who were nearing the end of their lives, which revealed three main themes:

1. They wish they had not played it so safe and had taken more risks in life;

2. They wish they had not worried so much about how things were going to turn out-- in the end almost everything turned out just fine, despite all the worrying;

3. They wish they had not lived their lives according to other people's expectations and influences- they feel that they wasted much of their time trying to please or not disappoint others. The course of their lives was largely determined by others.

I think about these survey responses often as I make decisions in my life. I take risks, I try not to worry and I try to live my life on my terms. I'm not always successful, but I'm definitely getting better!

Being a father of three I feel obligated to teach my children to live authentically and passionately, which helps me do the same.
