"Do right. Do your best. Treat others as you want to be treated." - Lou Holtz

I recently started working at an academic center. It is amazing being surrounded by so many intelligent people, up to date on the latest evidence and procedures, doing new exciting research.

But it also can be intimidating. Sometimes I walk out of a shift feeling dejected, like everyone knows more than me. I read, I study, I always continue to learn, but it seems like a never ending amount of knowledge to acquire.

So lately, when I feel that way, I ask myself, "Did I do my best? Was I kind?".

I can't read every medical journal. I can't go to every medical conference. I can't know everything.

But I can always be kind. I can always do my best. And if I remind myself that I did those things, I can walk out of a shift with my head held high.

WEEKLY WELLNESS TIP: If you're ever feeling like you're not good enough, ask yourself, "Did I do my best? Was I kind?". If you answer yes to both of those, you're doing just fine.
