Listen! As a key takeaway, Chan emphasizes the concept of leverage and scalability. In the medical field, professionals pride themselves on their independence and ability to handle everything on their own. However, in the business world, the ability to replicate one’s skills and knowledge through others is what leads to exponential growth. Chan highlights that the most successful entrepreneurs are those who can build a team that can operate independently, each member multiplying the founder’s efforts. Furthermore, Chan points out the importance of understanding... Continue Reading

Grief And Juxtaposed Gratitude &Raquo; 20170306 173250 3

Listen! The concept of grief extends beyond the loss of life. It encompasses any form of loss, whether personal or professional.

I get to try again daily, annually, whatever time I allow myself. I remember I have to give myself grace. Life is hard! With grief, it’s a sense of loss. Not just in the personal life do we find grief but also in the professional arena—lack of promotion, lost opportunity, putting too much weight on our identities as physicians. We forget to be grateful for the beautiful gift of life. Life is beautiful. It’s not always... Continue Reading

My son chose the illustration above. He loves skeletons! Silver... Continue Reading
