Can you WIN at medicine? A very common mistake I notice among the best and most motivated young medical students and beginning doctors is that they are trying to achieve a complete victory. To get the best mark possible. To pass one more, most sophisticated examination/quiz/test. To eliminate the disease. To WIN. And every time they start feeling successful - another question they have no answer to is asked, another and more prestigious examination is introduced, a new patient with a devastating disease arrives. And they try to WIN again. I am not stating that perfectionism is bad. The problem is that there will be no end to this. Medicine as well as being a doctor is a dynamic process with new and more complicated challenges rising again and again. Medicine is an infinite game (please refer to the concept of the “Infinite game” by Simon Sinek). Just like many other subjects. You just have to put up with this. You must remember that you will never achieve a complete victory. Beware of burnout. You have to preserve and protect yourself, and be the best version of oneself for as long as possible. And later, be happy to pass your skills, experience and role to the upcoming generation. One of the best speeches on Leadership-Millenials-Infinite game: https://youtu.be/RyTQ5-SQYTo

Human physiology is all that matters Recently, I had a wonderful talk with an inspiring person thanks to Qoorio. During the talk, when I introduced myself I heard something like “You are the one who is all about anesthesia”. Actually, NO. Of course, I am the one who gives it to people. However, being anesthesiologist is actually all about understanding human physiology and how the organism reacts to certain diseases and drugs in combination with comorbidities the person has. Thus, our knowledge is much broader than you may think :) I am always open to share this knowlegde with our community!

If nobody does something, it does not mean that it is not beneficial. Maybe they just haven’t figured it out. The opposite is even more true - if everybody does something, it does not mean that it is beneficial. Maybe they just haven’t figured it out yet.

When a person give you a big plate of food, and you can only eat a bit, of course you would not suffer yourself to eat all of it. Sometimes people won't understand your needs, you only choose or take what you want.
