Day 13: Find a Hero

Go find a hero. We humans are natural at secretly wanting to be like someone else. We have a natural tendency to emulate something good we see in others, or for that matter, something bad. We idolise, we copy, we mimic. Today, find a hero and see if you could discover more about his or her life through books, internet or the social media. Find a mentor you respect, a doctor you admire, or even someone from non-medical background. Read a bit about their life and achievements, and then note down a few basic attributes that they have. See if those attributes are ones that you can adopt in your day-to-day practice to make you a better doctor. Have fun.
