Failure's Two Options
Doctors, like medical students, seem to have an allergy to failure. Or maybe not so much failure itself as admitting to it. This situation results in two odd treatments (at least in my [personal] experience).
- Said medical professional realizes he/she hasn't succeeded in something* and then fabricates excuses and attempts to reinforce them in order to show nothing ever happened.
- Said medical professional simply ignores the something* falsely hoping it will somehow solve itself.
Both methods are far from ideal and even farther from being palliative and no where near curative. After reading a bit of psychology not too long ago I realized that maybe a possible reason for these futile rescue attempts is fear. So in order to make any progress this fear must be revealed what ever it may be.
So I began asking myself specific questions about why I stopped doing something that once ago I thought would have been a great idea. I came up with nothing, essentially unraveling a tangled web of misconceptions and false trepidations (awesome word, no?).
So without further ado, I sincerely apologize for neglecting this resource and all the people who have commented on my old posts. I will try to build up the fire that once helped start this blog and would like to thank all the people who have left comments. Those comments helped prevent all this from completely being extinguished.
Stay tuned for a possible blogging competition from Thailand in the next post.
