Welcome to my website, I am so happy you were able to find me out of millions and millions of websites. This means you were destined to find me and I can’t wait for us to develop a great working relationship!
What is my story?
I have been practicing Anesthesiology for 15 years and really enjoyed the work until I didn’t. You guessed it, I burned out. Like many physicians, before me, I bit off more than I could chew. I took on as many roles as I could take and almost never said “no.” I became a vice-chair, medical director, several committees active member and ran the department call/vacation schedule. Outside of work, I coached soccer, baseball, basketball, swimming and actively participated in a boy scouts den/troop. Did I mention I never played or participated in the aforementioned activities as a youth, except swimming?
Going full steam ahead without a serious break for too long lead to a total meltdown.
I quit everything
My job, activities, medical directorship, committees, meetings and everything else that demanded my time(except for my family of course).
With every fork in the road story, looking back, it was the best thing that ever happened to me. The time I gained from not constantly fulfilling other people’s agendas helped me with self-reflection and mental/physical rejuvenation.
I have since then gotten my job back(at part-time😁) with more time to:
Meditate, Exercise, Travel, Build Websites and Podcasts, Invest, Spend more time with my family.
It hasn’t been easy and there are definitely more challenges ahead but at least I am no longer burned out and look forward to a future that I feel I can better control.
Too many docs are having the same problems
I feel rejuvenated but every time I go to work I see the same thing. Other physicians are stuck and having similar problems that I used to have.
You don’t have to settle for your current life. There is a way out, even if it means changing the way you think about your situation.
I realize more now than ever, I was stuck within my own limiting beliefs.
- I didn’t believe I could get a better job.
- I didn’t believe I could negotiate a better contract.
- I didn’t believe I could achieve financial independence
- I didn’t believe I could be happy with my career again.
What do you do? Follow the example of thousands of physicians who have been stuck too but then became unstuck.
First and foremost, if you are burned out, you need an emergency break! I am not talking about going with your family to Disney or a Cruise. I mean a real break where you don’t do anything but recuperate, rest and think. Also, I don’t mean a weekend. If you have graduated residency you have already put in 42K hours which is approx. 20 years worth of work. Take a week, two or even a month if that is what it takes. Don’t go broke or abandon your practice but plan something so you can rejuvenate. You, your family and your patients will all benefit from this.
Do this and start to plan out how you would like the rest of your life to look. Set some short term and long term targets and get started.
