    #59. The Importance of Rest

    #59. The Importance of Rest

    Have you ever heard someone say, “I’ll sleep when I’m dead”?  Have you ever said that yourself? And the images of doctors being “good soldiers” who put their head down and get the work done, regardless of how bad things are. 
    If you are a hard-working physician, you know what I am talking about.  Rest feels counter-productive, and our culture in medicine teaches us the same. But this is a toxic notion and something that I am going to address today on this podcast. Join me in this episode, where we are going to talk about why it is so important for doctors to take a break.

    #58. The Art and Importance of Saying No

    #58. The Art and Importance of Saying No

    Everything in life has trade offs. Unfortunately, most of us don’t realize that this is happening, and so these trade offs happen unintentionally.  We say “yes” to all sorts of things, and don’t realize that this means we are saying “no” to many others.  
    If you aren’t clear about what your priorities are, someone or something else will set them for you. Maybe it’s your job, your boss, or someone else in your life. If you haven’t mastered the art of saying no, then today’s episode is exactly what you need.

    #57. What Doctors Can Learn from German Shepherds

    #57. What Doctors Can Learn from German Shepherds

    Are there areas of your life where you think that you don’t have a choice? That there are not options? Is medicine one of those areas? Many doctors that join the Alpha Coaching Experience enter the program with hope, but not always a belief that there is a way to practice medicine on their own terms. 
    On today’s episode, understand why the idea that you don’t have a choice is just a story you have learned and how a 1967 study on German Shepherds proves this. Learn why things don't have to continue the way they are, and how you can start to change them.

    #56. Money is the Great Amplifier

    #56. Money is the Great Amplifier

    There are many people out there who think that money is not only the root of all evil, but that it is a taboo topic that should not be discussed.  Particularly in medical education. But today I am going to call B.S. on this idea. Money is a great amplifier in our lives, but we need to understand a few important points to use it this way. Today I am going to share a couple of important views on money that will change your life. 
    So, join me today and learn why every doctor should be madly in love with money, why that’s not a bad thing, and how to create more of it.

    #55. The Therapeutic Index of Physician Thought Work

    #55. The Therapeutic Index of Physician Thought Work

    In medicine we talk about the therapeutic index or therapeutic window for the drugs we prescribe. Every medication has both a potential benefit and potential risk.  The therapeutic index describes the safety of the drug.  The goal, of course, is to find the therapeutic window of a drug where we maximize efficacy while limiting side effects.
    In this podcast, I dive into the therapeutic window of coaching (yes, one exists). Because it is important to understand how coaching tools can be used to create great change or can be used to inflict pain on yourself. I want to talk about how to avoid the later and use these tools correctly.

    #54. Vaccines, Shaming, and American Individualism

    #54. Vaccines, Shaming, and American Individualism

    Today I am going to take an unapologetic look into the current state of this country when it comes to vaccines, shaming, and American individualism. This episode I’m going to get real about this pandemic, what I think one of the major problems is that uniquely sets America up to be ravaged by this disease, and how we can fix it. 
    Spoiler, I do not think this is the patient’s fault. I do not think this is the fault of those that are not vaccinated. Listen to today's episode to learn how we can come together to truly end this pandemic.

Quickly becoming my favorite podcast

Hearing Jimmy reflect on medicine and life have helped quite a bit to clarify my own thoughts and feelings. I’ve started to look forward to Monday mornings when the new episode drops. Keep up the great work!

Love the philosophy podcasts

I've been listening to you through spotify but came to iTunes just so I could rate and review. Love the philosophy style but also focus on practical application as well; helps reframe the way you think about your time, your energy and where it's being devoted to, understanding that these things are limited on a daily basis. This is where real change happens people, change in perspective leads to change in action. My favorite one is "Choose Curiosity Over Shame #21." Really helped reframe the critical mind to a more thoughtful, compassionate one towards oneself. Keep it up Dr. Turner!
