333: Work Addiction – Mastermind Call
I love sharing my monthly masterclass and mastermind calls on the podcast. We have such a good time in these calls discussing various aspects of the medical field and ways we can overcome burnout and fatigue.
This past month was no different. I fully believe that our jobs in the medical profession are 100% our drug of choice. I recently did an entire series on this topic, but in this discussion I’m getting even more feedback from medical professionals who are in the trenches.
I cover everything from the three indicators that will show whether or not you are a workaholic to why we think people in medicine work so hard.
Most important is learning tactics for recognizing that we’re in an unhealthy relationship with our work and ways to change it before it’s too late. Listen in to learn more!
“I remind myself to take the next best step. I don’t have to have the next five to ten years planned out, just what I need to do today.” Dr. Errin Weisman
