As frustrated as you may feel on the job, being an overworked, underappreciated physician, and as much as you yearn for new circumstances to relieve your stress, it may be too big a challenge to step away from your physician livelihood right now.
So, how does one develop excellent coping skills?
Professor Srikumar Rao (author of "Are you ready to succeed?" and "Happiness at work") believes that our happiness comes from and is largely experienced on the INSIDE. From the quality of our thinking, feeling and interpretation of events. The stuff we DO control.
I have the privilege and exciting challenge of working with Professor Rao in his upcoming "Creativity and Personal Mastery Program" in the fall (the homework has started arriving!) and have been given access to a series of very brief, pointed, somewhat provocative video clips to share with you.
For the next few weeks, I'll be delivering to your Inbox, a jolt of java (of the more spiritual kind), to offer you a perspective on life that you can choose to make your central theme for that day.
Let's see if we can produce a boost in the physician working world happiness quotient!
The first video focuses on the difference between our actions and their outcomes.
Sip it slowly ... savor it well!
Oh, by the way, if you decide to partipate in the course (it's limited to 30 people so it may already be full), please let me know. Dr Rao has offered a generous discount to my readers if I let him know you are itnerested!
