Day 5: Learn Something Else

Saturday. Most of us are not seeing patients today. Grab this opportunity today to learn something that is totally unrelated to medicine and surgery. Then tell someone what you’ve learned. Pick up a book on whales. Google up how to make origami. Watch a documentary. Learn how to build a birdhouse. Something totally new and different. Surprise yourself, and someone else. What you learn today adds flavor to who you are. You should not allow medicine and surgery to be the only thing that defines you. Keeping an interest outside of medicine and surgery is a fun and necessary thing to do. Adds colour to your days, melodies to your life and it may take you down surprising paths of new discoveries you’ve never considered before. Challenging enough for a weekend?
