“It’s not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.” ~Hans Selye
If you agreed with the first two statements, you’re coming from a fixed mindset. If you agreed with the second two, you’ve got a growth mindset.
Is it more job satisfaction, better relationships with family, better health, clients, or is it a combination of all of those things?
I think the critical thing to know is, it’s not like it’s all gonna be rainbows and unicorns.
I know we are so busy being doctors, caring for others, that we rarely, if ever, stop to consider what we intend for our own lives. And, guess what? If you do not stop, consider, plan and structure your life for your intentions, someone and usually everyone else will do it for you.
Then, suddenly, you are 62 and wondering what the heck happened!
Recovery is absolutely possible if burnout occurs. But first, in medicine, we want to define the problem. This helps us outline the scope of the problem, where we are, what the research says about appropriate therapy, and what our options are going forward. As a physician suffering from burnout, I wanted to know where I was and where I could go.
Once we know the possibilities, then we pursue action. I tell my patients that life is full of choices, and we have the power to choose a course of action.
