    Physicians, not the government, will save U.S. healthcare - Dr. Brent Lacey

    Physicians, not the government, will save U.S. healthcare - Dr. Brent Lacey

    Episode 100 - This is a bittersweet episode for me, since it’s going to be my final podcast.  The last 2 years has been a phenomenal journey for all of us. I’ve gotten emails from so many of you telling me how valuable this content has been, and I’m so grateful to have been part of your journey.  I set out to create a platform to empower physicians to take control of their careers, their families, and their personal finances.  My hope was to embolden you with knowledge and encouragement so you can live your best life on your terms.  Now, after over 75,000 downloads, 100 weekly episodes, and 19 Sunday Specials, I hope I’ve given you some of those tools that you need.  
    That’s why I’m so excited about today’s discussion.  As physicians, I think we know better than anyone else what we need to take care of our patients.  The government isn’t coming to help us.  The government is full of people who don’t know or can’t understand how to care for patients because they’ve never had to do it.  You’re a physician. You should be the one in charge of making decisions for your patients.  If we’re going to make that a reality, we have to start by taking charge of ourselves.

    It's Time to get Unbusy - Garland Vance, D.Min

    It's Time to get Unbusy - Garland Vance, D.Min

     Episode 98 -When did the phrase, “I’m busy” become a badge of honor?  I’ve been wrestling with this lately.  When did we get to a point when someone asks “How’s it going?” and we reply “It’s busy” like it’s something we’re proud of?  I think part of it comes from the mistaken impression the busy-ness equals accomplishment. It’s all too easy for us to get caught up in the idea that being busy means we’re getting stuff done, or that we’re accomplishing everything we want to do.  Sometimes being busy just means running around putting out fires and never getting to the things that actually matter to you. Today’s guest is going to teach us how to get “un-busy” so we can reclaim our time and our sanity and make room for the things that are truly important to us. It's time to get Unbusy.
