It is so easy to become complacent. Especially when you seem to be on a track to seems to be “conventional”. You know, the path that most people go down. Go to school, get a job, stay at the job for the rest of you life. I work with people who have literally been at the company longer than I’ve been alive. I don’t necessarily see that as a bad thing, because that means one of two things: the company is awesome/they love what they do or life got in the way and they just stayed out of complacency. I can’t be one of those people. I don’t think I will ever be happy working for someone else, or at least not being a role I can flex my creativity and leadership. I have multiple ideas and I’m building up the courage to pursue them. I want to change the way people look at doctors, the way people interact with their healthcare provider. I just need to learn more and fight the urge to stay in my comfort zone. The problem is, I’m at this great job with great potential for growth. LOL, I never thought I would say that. I love my job and what we do, but I would never forgive myself if I didn’t go after my dreams. I’m young, I don’t have a girlfriend, and I don’t have any kids. I have no excuse! This is the time for me to be hungry and fight for what I want. I have to stay focused, with clear blinders. Clear blinders will allow me to stay focused without preventing me from seeing the opportunities around me. Basically, I need to stay focused on where I want to go, yet be open to the opportunities around me.
In this TOADM video, I talk about some of my concerns about being a adult and not being complacent. I will achieve my dream, by God’s grace.
I love y’all, God loves y’all
