Being Terrible

Having been a lifelong overachiever and perfectionist, I always wanted to get the best results possible ASAP. Sometimes this means working super hard and late, forgetting to set good boundaries and take care of me.


As I've embarked on this entrepreneurial journey, I realized that this was a whole new world to me. It's different from medicine in so many ways. It's unpredictable and uncertain. There's no clear structure or path. And compared to being an attending physician after years of school and residency training, I have a lot to learn.


So I have to remind myself that... it's OK that it's hard. It's ok that I'm bad at this. You don't get good without being bad first. So my goal is to fail as much as possible, as quickly as possible, so that I can learn a TON and get really good. And remember to have fun in the process :)
