Why???

The hour is near

So many say

Of the Lord’s coming

So come and hear

 

Christ Jesus died

For you and me

So we can forever be

With God for all eternity

 

Why do we need Him?

You sigh and ask

Are not good works

Enough for us?

 

Good works are good

But not enough

No one is perfect

Except our Lord

 

To gain entry

At the pearly gates

Jesus is our one-way ticket

To our heavenly home

 

So listen up

Dear brothers and sister

It’s not too late

Commit yourself

 

Repent of your sins

Accept Jesus Christ

As Lord and Savior

So we can be together, forever.

 

See you in heaven!!!

17 days to go before our experiment!

What’s up Doc?

I have always associated this question with Bugs Bunny. I can just imagine Bugs munching on his carrot, languidly asking Elmer Fudd, how the latter is faring.

Naturally, Elmer is fuming because he still hasn’t found a way to capture “that wabbit.” Elmer tries everything, but he is always outwitted by Bugs Bunny. Sometimes, Elmer thinks he finally got Bugs, but in the end, Bugs is always one step ahead of him.

I have just finished reading an article about doctors who want to get out of clinical practice. They want  a career change, but don’t know how to go about it. If doctors are not careful, they might become the Elmer Fudds of this world.

It’s too bad when that happens, because doctors are among the most hardworking people in the world. They have been trained to work under pressure, and to put other people first before themselves.

Nonetheless, there comes a time when most, if not all doctors experience burn-out. Some go back to getting another diploma. Others take on leadership roles like becoming a hospital director. Still others become writers, astronauts, media consultants, career coaches, and politicians. Many want to  lead more leisurely lives, and spend their days fishing or retiring to Las Vegas.

Not all doctors have the luxury of retiring, especially when they had to pay off large college loans at the beginning of their practice.

So, how can doctors become more like Bugs Bunny? These are my suggestions: Take a self-assessment test to determine where their passions lie. Next, get some networking skills and learn how to use social media to widen their network of friends. Finally, take self-development courses in line with their passion. For example, doctors who want to write can take short writing courses while still in the clinics.  Whatever the doctor puts his/her mind into, he/she can do it. After all, who survived sleepless nights studying for that Anatomy exam, or going on 24 hour shifts with relatives shouting at you for asking too many questions while the patient is groaning in pain?

You might be wondering why I am writing on this topic. Well, I’m a psychiatrist turned entrepreneur/writer/business coach, and I’m lovin’ it!
