Every day I spend time with podcasts or learning in some way. I listened to multiple this week. Some of the things I learned this week.
Be Better: Every day or every week work on how you can be better. A little change that will help you approach your goal or commitment. It doesn’t have to be something earth shattering. If you do 52 weeks of little changes toward your goals you will find yourself inching toward it and be there before you know it. I read my books this way. I’m paying down my debt this way. I’m growing the websites this way. I grow my life, family, & relationships by spending seconds or minutes to interact and tell people thank you or awesome job. Make a commitment and not get overwhelmed by doing something everyday.
Attitude: The attitude you approach something with is how it’ll go in most instances. You can’t say I hate I hate I hate and then get to the point of doing and expect not to hate it. I get to work and genuinely say good morning, hi how’s today and yup I’m annoyingly upbeat. I do this for everyone and myself. If people see me pissy and depressed everyday I’m adding an attitude that just brings down the whole team. I’m there to work... not to complain, be unhappy, & just be a body. I’m there because these groups have people that act this way or they can’t keep people because they are all stressed... if I can be a stress-free person at work. I’m more likely to be asked back. I’m more likely to feel like my days go well. I’m more likely to truly have fun and make the days go by. I miss my family at home and I’m so excited to see family pictures or video and I share this with the people I work with. Kids and dogs make everyone light up a little.
Stick to it: If I sign a contract or give my word. That’s it. I’ve said I’ll do something. I’m going to darn well do it. I’m not going to tell someone that I said I’d do their room tomorrow then not because I found out the surgeon I like has just two easy cases for the day. If I get what I want and ask for ... I honor what I said I would do. This makes me reliable, dependable, the person to go to, and sought out for as a provider. I’m reasonable in my expectations, experience, and what will come. I know the business of anesthesia, each hand in the cookie jar and the expenses that come after the reimbursement income and how the expenses trickle down.
These are just some of the things I’ve learned this week and application is always the challenge in what I learn. I choose to hear most of my education, so I then proceed to the application and notes to myself in how I can apply it towards my day/week/month.
I’d like to tell all to have an amazing weekend!
