Morning thoughts with Dr. Lauren Grossman
Not everyone’s the same, but for me, I couldn’t be the success I am without getting up early and exercising. I need those early hours before everyone’s up to get my batteries charged, and get me ready to take on the day. Once my kids are off to school, I then focus on what’s in front of me – my career as a podiatrist. I look at the day ahead, map out my schedule, and figure how to best attack that schedule.
I make sure I have my fuel for the day; healthy snacks, lunch and water, & promptly head to my office.
As a podiatrist, I usually see more than 20 patients a day with various issues. They all have different personalities, and bring their own challenges. The one thing I must remind myself is this: things are going to go wrong, not everyone’s going to be easy to deal with, but I can’t let that deter my focus. Nor do I let it ruin my day. I know that in helping each of these people, not only am I improving their lives, but I am building my experience and brand as a reliable doctor.
I have doubts, I make mistakes, I’m not perfect, but I’m relentless in pursuing my dream to be a kick ass doctor who people need to see.
“Life Is not about waiting for the storm to pass but learning to dance in the rain.”
People with wisdom have been saying this for as long as I can remember. Throughout my work day, I combine medical expertise, business knowledge, and a genuine concern for the full well-being of my patients. I practice by the motto of treating my patients as “family” and am always available 24-7, 365.
Dr. Grossman’s words to live by: at the end of the day, it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished. It’s about who you’ve lifted up. Who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.
