#32 Making a Difference & Enjoying Life as a Healthcare Leader: What do you believe and what kind of choices are you making?
“Tell me what you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” – Mary Oliver
If you are listening to our podcast, it’s more than likely that at some point in your career path you chose to serve in the healthcare field, and you may have also made the choice to be a leader. If you did so, again it is more than likely that you made that choice because you wanted to contribute to something bigger than yourself.
As a leader you may have felt, or you currently feel, the tension between making a difference and enjoying life.
Sometimes you feel the tension in response to pressures/circumstances, external demands, leader/boss expectations, and sometimes it can be the fear of missing out.
This tension is often persistent and it’s real! The struggle can feel real too!
It’s real and persistent because making a difference and enjoying life is a polarity.
If we aren’t aware of this, we may choose to believe we have to make a choice between the two, in other words we think we can either make a difference or enjoy life.
But when we recognize this tension as a polarity, we know it’s a both/and situation, we can then choose to make a difference and enjoy life!
Join us for this episode as we explore the Making a Difference and Enjoying Life Polarity and why it’s important to leverage this polarity and the unintended consequences if you don’t.
