The Successful Thinker The Future Of Healthcare - Page 25

T "Changing your gears is imperative." here is NO QUESTION about it. Healthcare is not for sissies! "It's the kind of thing that makes you want to go back to school to do something else." Darcy told me after working a shift as a pharmacist at a really hectic store. "Is this what I have to look forward to for the rest of my career?" she went on to ask. She was young, smart, amazingly talented, and extremely intuitive. Her new found recognition was that everything she had worked to achieve came with a Pandora's box full of unexpected consequences. I was on the other side of the aisle. Twenty years older, I had watched as a relatively simple profession had evolved to a point that even the most positive and energetic people were beginning to wear out at an alarming rate. "Is this what I signed up for?" Darcy asked with a concern that made us both wonder what the future of medicine was going to look like in the new millennium. "You're all over this!" I said in my most confident voice. "But there is something that no one is talking about, and you really need to know if you are going to be successful." The reality is that no one is coming to fix your fatigue. The key to your future lies in accepting your struggle as real, and developing the courage required for taking the necessary steps for staying healthy. COREY JAHNKE
