For all you "Type A's"... Are you a success junkie?
Dear CSS Members and Colleagues:
Enclosed is an article entitled “Why success won’t make you happy.” Why would I send this to you? My purpose is to give you a moment to pause and reflect on career and balance in your life, particularly when we have so much written about Physician Burnout. Google this term and you’ll get almost 9 Million results.
I have previously posted on CSS on “Warner’s Corner” on the concept of Resume values vs Eulogy values (https://www.codmansociety.org/single-post/2019/10/11/Resume-vs-Eulogy-Virtues ) . It is not necessary to wait until later in your life to consider these principles.
Finally, Clayten Christensen (https://www.codmansociety.org/single-post/2020/02/03/Remembering-Clayton-Christensen ) wrote a short book entitled “How will you measure your life?” He was a brilliant Professor at HBS and sadly, he passed away this year. His economic and spiritual principles are inspirational and completely true. Take a moment to consider these concepts in the context of what you do Monday through Friday or perhaps Monday to Monday….
