Tired of being your own worst enemy? Ask yourself these 2 easy questions!

Do you ever find yourself saying ‘I can’t believe I just broke up with yet another emotionally unavailable partner!’, or ‘I know I’m talented, why do my business ideas keep failing?’, or ‘why do I keep saying yes to additional projects at work even though I’m already too busy?’

You aren’t alone, and you aren’t powerless! Look closely at the commonalities in the vicious cycles in your life, and here’s what you’ll find: YOU. That’s right. You are the common thread.

Are We Being Too Exclusive?

As I gear up for my next event- the TransforMD Mastery Retreat for Women Physicians (at an all-inclusive, adults-only, luxury resort in Mexico Jan 8-12), I've had some inquiries as to why we don't include other women in healthcare- PA's, NPs, pharmacists, or even women in non-medical professions.

Tired of beating yourself up for not living up to your definition of 'perfect'?

I've got perfectionism on the brain. I can’t help it.

Even though I’m not longer practicing medicine, I'm not immune to the pressures we all put on ourselves to be perfect, trust me! I've got perfectionism built into my DNA :)

Going Beyond Peanut Butter and Graham Crackers

Life as a doctor doesn’t have to be this way! These days, stress and burnout are a near-constant. Lots of things contribute- long hours, EMR, coding, utilization management reviews, rounds, challenging patients (and families), complex medical decisions, and discharge planning, just to name a few.

You don’t have control over most of these parts of your day. But you do have control over one thing: YOU.
