BLOG: Become AWARE to overcome negativity

February 8, 2016

I love my vocation. However, some days are truly more challenging than others. Like most orthopedic surgeons, office hours are more taxing to me than the thrill of surgery. Indeed, as Wayne M. Sotile, PhD, has elegantly written, the “high demand/low control” scenarios, such as my days in clinic, are the most emotionally taxing. I never know what awaits me in the next examination room, nor do I often feel confident that I can control the outcome of the encounter.

Contrast this to the OR, where I do have a good idea of what the shoulder or knee in room six is going to manifest. And my measure of control over the outcome, far exceeds that what I experience in the office.
