Is Your Career Consistent with the Legacy You Want to Leave Behind?

podcast Aug 03, 2023

In our negotiations, we’re typically laser focused on that particular job and how it aligns with our lives now, but sometimes we have to zoom out.

Sometimes we have to take a 30,000 ft. view and ask ourselves - is this career consistent with the legacy we want to leave behind.

In a perfect situation, we want to look back at our careers and express pride and joy with what we accomplished, but we all know that’s not always the case in medicine.

A lot of us look at this job as something we were called to do but something that’s soul-sucking.

Is there anything we can do to change that now so we’ll look back on it fondly and proudly, with no regrets?

In this episode, I talk about the power of thinking of our legacy right now and advocating for it in our jobs.
