I think one of the most powerful but scariest things we do as achievers is create a compelling future life, and then actually watch it start to unfold right before our eyes.
Think about it. If you are a doc, you did this as a student at several levels. In reality, many times. In fact, at one point it was probably term-to-term.
Then, you opened your practice. Still way more changes. Lots of excitement, new ways of doing things, patients that challenged every skill you thought you forgot.
So, you know you have the power to create magnificent changes.
And Then Getting Stuck…
After a while, what was once magnificent and exciting seems dull, boring, and very routine. We sometimes so easily forget the sacrifices we made to get where we are. High school, undergrad, and on and on.
The daily grind is just that. If it’s not practice stress, it’s kids, family, etc.
Then sometimes we build fences, stop communicating with past friends, we can also become very rigid in certain habits, most especially mental habits and sometimes getting really, really stuck.
Before we know it, seems like years have passed. If things did not turn out like you thought, it’s easy to just give in, and say, “…Oh well…” We in fact, can start to live by default.
That’s when its not pretty…. (more next time)
